Tagalongs. The undisputed champion of all Girl Scout cookies. Well ok, maybe not undisputed. The Samoas and Thin Mints are clearly tied for first place. But can we pour out some liquor for the Lemon Chalets of yesteryear? Those were my mom and husband’s favorites because they were sooo lemony and zesty!
But there is something about Tagalongs and their irresistible crunch + that peanut butter and chocolate combination that just makes me weak in the knees. Read More

No, of course I didn’t scour the web trying to find a restaurant supply site that sold ice cream parlor shell dip, then spend $16.49 for each 96 ounce canister (x3 flavors) and add rush shipping to the order for instant gratification…

I was first introduced to these cookies on an episode of The Barefoot Contessa. Ina brought Kathleen King on her season 2 episode, Baking Basics. Kathleen owns Tate’s Bake Shop in Southampton, NY. In this episode, she made one of their well-known cookies, Double Chocolate Almond. Once I tried these cookies, I was hooked but I felt the recipe needed a few modifications to make them more “my style”. Here’s what I changed: Read More
Decadence is an understatement. This is like, a boozy chocolate truffle and a brownie had a baby, and it’s this Irish Cream Chocolate Fudge Pie! Listen, this pie is rich. So you can’t make this pie and then say, “omg it’s rich”. Because, duh. It’s rich. That’s the point 🙂 If you aren’t crazy for chocolate (like in the way that you could always eat it after you are already very full), this one may not be for you. Read More
You’re welcome, Internet. Here is finally a Dole Whips recipe that seriously tastes identical to Disney theme parks. This doesn’t have “bananas”, “coconut milk”, or “cool whip” like the craziness I keep finding online. Whhhhhyyyy?? Have they not been to Disney World or Disney Land? There are dozens of these recipes on Pinterest and I have yet to find one that uses legit ingredients that will capture the true essence of the Dole Whips.
FYI – There. Are. No. Bananas in the Disney version! GET IT TOGETHER!!

Super chewy, pillowy soft, thick sugar cookie crust is the base of this beautiful short-cut dessert, converting store-bought vanilla ice cream to a white chocolate strawberry and blueberry dream. This is the ultimate dessert for the summer.
Forth of July party, picnic, family gathering, whatever the occasion this summer, ice cream pie can always be your answer. It’s so universal and can be made in many ways. It’s always a crowd pleaser and is super easy to make – not requiring any ice cream machine, because you are just elevating store bought ice cream (of course if you want extra credit you can make your own ice cream – I am all about that life).
