Baked Chocolate Croissant French Toast

Baked Chocolate Croissant French Toast (2 of 6)w

Making french toast one piece at a time is so last year. Baked French Toast is where it's at. Especially when you use Croissants for the bread...and add chocolate chips! Tomorrow is a special day: it's my 13th wedding anniversary. I really can't believe it's been that long. I was such a baby! {If you haven't read it, you can read our love story here. You can also see how we celebrated our 10th anniversary here.} Back in 2001, I'd never colored my hair. I'd never waxed my eyebrows. I'd never been so happy in my life! {You're wondering what this has to do with Baked Chocolate Croissant French Toast, don't you? Hang on, I'll get there eventually.} Back when we got married, I'd never been to Europe. That all changed in … {continue reading}

No Bake Mocha Mud Pie Dessert

Mocha Mud Pie Dessert (1 of 7)w

Who remembers Mocha Mud Pie? Show of hands? Anyone? How about Jamocha Almond Fudge Ice Cream? This No Bake Mocha Mud Pie Dessert is all of those combined. Call it a chocolate delight, a lush dessert, or a chocolate lasagna; whatever it is it's absolutely delicious. Last week I almost burst into tears in a dressing room. Happy tears. Let me explain. For over the past year, ever since "waisted" dresses have come back into fashion, I've spent hours trying on every single dress in pretty much every single store with the same result: they look horrible on me. I have a really short waist. As in, pitifully short. Do you know what someone with a really short waist looks like in a baggy cotton dress with an elastic waistband? An … {continue reading}

Homemade Drumsticks

Homemade Drumsticks (6 of 11)w

I love Drumsticks Ice Cream Bars. I don't love the price. Making your own at home is so much easier - and you can use whatever flavors you have on hand. Plus, you can make them with sprinkles. I love chopped peanuts, but man. I love my sprinkles too. My mom used to buy Drumsticks all the time when I was a kid. I have fond memories of eating off all the nuts that would come loose, then eating off the chocolate. Then I'd manage to eat all the ice cream, even down into the cone. Then I'd nibble the chocolate part of the cone, then eat the cone down to the chocolate tip, then finish it all in one bite. What? I can't be the only one who eats Drumsticks that way, right? RIGHT? **Crickets** You already know this about me, right? … {continue reading}

Easy Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream (4 of 8)w

Today is a super special day! It's a day that requires peanut butter ice cream that's filled with chunks of fudgy brownie. Honestly, every day is special enough for this Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream, I know. But today is really extra important. It's my husband's birthday! Birthdays aren't really important to him. He'd probably rather I just forget that it's a day. He actually told me not to get him presents. I know, right? Birthdays, however, are very important to me. They've always been huge deals in my family. So I bring my big hullabaloo to him, and he just grins and bears it. So, {tap tap tap} everyone ready? HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEL! So, for his birthday I made him ice cream. Actually, I'm lying. I made this ice … {continue reading}

Maple Bacon Crunch Ice Cream

Maple Bacon Crunch Ice Cream (5 of 7)w

If you don't love bacon, I'm so sorry. Because this ice cream is all about the bacon. And the maple. And the toffee crunch. For my second installment of Ice Cream Week, I made Maple Bacon Cunch Ice Cream - without a machine. I think it's my most favorite ice cream - ever. A few weeks ago we went to Palm Springs. Because it's about a 9 hour drive from Sacramento and driving that long in the car with a 9 year old who asks "are we there yet" every five minutes makes me want to poke my eardrums out, we stopped for a night in Manhattan Beach. Manhattan Beach is in ocean front Los Angeles. It's got your usual: a pier, gorgeous beach, funky restaurants and shops, and an ice cream store. A truly happening ice cream store, as it … {continue reading}

Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream Sandwiches

Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream Sandwiches (7 of 10)w

Guess what? It's Ice Cream Week! All week long I'm going to be sharing ice cream recipes with you (and so will Ashton from Something Swanky!) Up first is one of my favorite flavors: Funfetti. Would you expect anything else? I made Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream and sandwiched them with Funfetti Sugar Cookies to make Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream Sandwiches! Last week we had dinner and movie night (our standard when Dad is on a business trip) and Jordan chose to watch the new version of The Parent Trap. Normally I end up working through movie night because, let's be honest, there is only so many times I can watch Space Buddies or Princess Protection Program before my eyeballs explode. I started off checking emails and … {continue reading}

No Bake S’mores Bars

No Bake S'mores Bars (3 of 7)w

You might be thinking: aren't all s'mores no bake? True...but these s'mores bars are even more no bake, because you don't need a BBQ, campfire, or any sort of heat source to make them. These No Bake S'mores Bars have only 4 ingredients, come together in literally minutes, and you can make them indoors. That's perfect when it's over 100° every day. Who wants to go out in that? Every summer I think it must be the hottest summer on record. And every summer someone reminds me that this 90-110° super hot weather in Sacramento is normal. I know they're right but jeesh. It feels like the hottest summer ever here. I'm either getting old and turning into that woman who fans herself constantly (even in the grocery store) or my heart … {continue reading}

The Best Homemade Brownie Mix

Best Brownie Mix (2 of 5)w

Once in awhile I get this chocolate craving. And on those days the only thing that curbs my craving is a brownie. A rich, fudgy, chocolate brownie. Usually those are the days I reach for a box brownie mix, because it's so quick to just whip up, bake, and dig in. However, lately I've found that I like my homemade brownies better than a box mix. Enter: homemade brownie mix. Keep it in your pantry and make a batch of brownies whenever you want - no box needed! I really hope I make sense while I write this. I'm kind of drugged up at the moment. Have you ever taken Dramamine? The kind that's not non-drowsy? The kind that makes your head feel like it's on tracers? Well, it turns out that I have vertigo. It's not horrible vertigo, … {continue reading}
