White Chocolate Berry Ice Cream Cookie Pie

 

White Chocolate Berry Ice Cream Cookie Pie

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).

Chewy Peanut Butter Filled Cookies w/ Salted Chocolate Fudge Frosting

 

Peanut Butter Filled Cookies w/ Salted Fudge Frosting

Do you like Tagalong Girl Scout Cookies and Buckeye Peanut Butter Balls? These two worlds may have just collided here and I am really excited to share this recipe with my fellow peanut butter & chocolate lovers.

Baker beware, these cookies are not for the faint of heart. Some may say this is too peanut buttery, too chocolatey, too rich. I say – you can never have enough of either, so I consider that a compliment! Continue Reading…

Espresso, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Low Sugar Smoothie Bowl

 

 

Espresso, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Low Sugar Smoothie Bowl

I have always had a weird love for espresso and peanut butter paired together in recipes. It’s a strange sounding combination, and when I add peanut butter to a mocha smoothie or espresso to a peanut butter smoothie, usually the worker confirms my order thinking they misunderstood what I asked for. Have you ever had an adffogato with peanut butter and chocolate ice cream? It’s an incredible combination. Continue Reading…

Brownie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Brownie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I came across an article about Balaboosta’s Bakery in East Norwich, NY and I was immediately fixated on these brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies they are famous for. They looked ridiculously amazing, better than the ones I have created here. They are the masters of stuffing brownies into cookies.

Now I don’t claim that these will be as perfect, but since I am not hopping on a plane and flying to NY anytime soon, I just had to attempt to create a second-best option! These are outstanding. By far the best cookie I have ever eaten, and I don’t say that lightly. It really merges two of the best desserts into one cookie, and better than “brookies”, because the brownie is on the inside, it stays slightly under-done, creating one phenomenal cookie.

Entenmann’s Devil’s Food Donuts Recipe

 

Entenmann's Devils Food Cake Recipe

“Everyone’s Got A Favorite” Entenmann’s and mine is the Devil’s Food Donuts!

Since this is one of my first posts since I took a three month wedding/honeymoon/moving apartments hiatus from my blog, I figured it was appropriate for my comeback recipe to be recreating a very special memory from my time on my honeymoon with my new husband. A chocolate, store-bought donut. Yes, it’s the little things 🙂  Continue Reading…

Kiwi Quencher Tropical Smoothie Copycat Recipe

 

Kiwi Quencher Tropical Smoothie Copycat Recipe

Whenever I am eating healthier, one of the foods I have to give up is smoothies from Tropical Smoothie, Jamba Juice, or Smoothie King. They have such a healthy rep but in reality they are full of sugar and carbs. Have you ever looked at the nutrition facts…?  It’s depressing, really.

But I recently discovered that if you ask for “no Turbinado / no sugar, etc” you save at least half of the calories, sugar and carbs. Tropical Smoothie is more popular in the area that I live in, so this is where I frequent the most. But you can make this request at any smoothie shop. Continue Reading…

KFC Chicken Littles Copycat Recipe

 

KFC Chicken Little Copycat

There is a big cult following for the REAL Chicken Littles from KFC. As you may know, KFC brought back this throwback sandwich a few years ago. But these are nothing more than a Chicken Snacker using a classic name. There is actually a Facebook petition page you can find here. The Chicken Little is supposed to be on a super soft roll, rather than a seeded slider bun. It was also a chicken patty, reminiscent of a school cafeteria lunch. And it had a good dollop of mayo, no lettuce. Big differences. This imposter sandwich has been outcasted by the true lovers of the Chicken Little and we are all asking the question, why can’t they just bring back the original?? Continue Reading…

10 Cute Valentine’s Day Dessert Recipes

 

Valentines is right around the corner. It’s technically not a very exciting holiday and honestly, it often comes and goes and I rarely even celebrate it. But what I absolutely adore about the Valentine season is just the adorable colors, candy and decor of V-day.I enjoy the trips through the seasonal section at Target where I spend 20 minutes picking up 100 different items and saying OMG THIS IS SOOOO CUTE (but rarely actually buying anything).  I guess it’s just a really good eye-candy holiday. But it is super fun to make delicious desserts that are both amazing tasting and also beautiful to look at. So today I’ve decided to compile a few of the Valentine desserts that have caught my eye this season. I’ve also included the recipe links to all of the recipes.
