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}

Lemon Pie Milkshake

Lemon Pie Milkshake (5 of 5)w

It's summer, which means it's approximately 1 billion degrees here in Sacramento. This kind of heat makes me want all things cold: ice cream, frozen treats, popsicles, and milkshakes! This Lemon Pie Milkshake has been on my to-do list for awhile, so when the thermometer hit 108 last week, I decided to finally make it. Nothing beats a hot day like a milkshake! There's this place one town over from me that is known for it's milkshakes. There menu takes up an entire wall of the restaurant, I'm not kidding. It's the sort of place where you go intending to get a new flavor but then get so flustered with the size of the menu that you just end up ordering the same thing over and over. My trainer told me he has a photo of the menu … {continue reading}

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies with Oreo Crust

Oreo Peanut Butter Cup Brownies (5 of 9)w

I'm just gonna say what you're all thinking: these brownies are ridiculous. But in a very, very good way. They're what happens when Crack Brownies marry Slutty Brownies: they're fudgy, chocolatey Peanut Butter Cup Brownies that have an Oreo Crust. Like I said, ridiculous. But you want them anyway. Sometimes I surprise myself. Sometimes I have to just gape in awe at my brilliance as a dessert thinker-upper. Yes, that's my new title. Like it? Dessert Thinker-Upper (noun): a person who thinks deeply and seriously about dessert and who comes up with ridiculous dessert recipes that make you drool. So in my role as Dessert Thinker-Upper, I'm always thinking about my next new dessert. I think about it at the gym, in the … {continue reading}

Crust & Crumbs 13

Normas

I hope you had a fabulous 4th of July! Let's start the weekend with some crust and crumbs of my life, shall we? We spent the last week of June in HOT Palm Springs. Murphy's Law...it was only in the 80s and 90s here in Sacramento while we're gone...and the heat followed us home. 1. Why go to Palm Springs in the summer? Because it's cheap. A friend let us use her condo, so the week was relatively inexpensive. That left a lot of money to pay for food and fun. And we spent a lot - on food, that is. Remember that Bravo show, Welcome to The Parker? It took place in Palm Springs, so I had to go see it. Turns out there is a fabulous breakfast restaurant inside - Norma's. I told my husband ahead of time we were ordering all the things, … {continue reading}

Junior Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Junior Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups (4 of 7)w

Two ingredients - that's all you need to make these cookie cups. I mean, it's almost embarrassing that I'm calling this a recipe. But I am, because it's probably my favorite cookie in a very long time: Junior Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups! I looooooove Junior Mints. I'll explain why in another post sometime (it's food related) but every time I see a box I just can't help picking one up. Something about the cool mint and smooth center gets me every time. Also, a 4 ounce box should be considered less than a serving. Is it just me or is it too easy to inhale the whole thing in less than 5 minutes? A few months ago I bought a couple boxes of Junior Mints with the intention of making chocolate chip cookies with them. I figured … {continue reading}

Ice Cream Cupcakes

Ice Cream Cupcakes (8 of 9)w

You know what's better than a scoop of ice cream next to a cupcake? A scoop of ice cream that comes inside a cupcake. Stuffed things are always better - always. Last month a friend of mine shared a photo on my Facebook wall. The photo was originally from Duncan Hines (I think) but it was a photo of a cupcake with ice cream stuffed inside. She asked if I could teach her how to make them for her son's birthday. I did one better than that. I made them for her - and for you. This way you can make your own ice cream stuffed cupcakes too! Because there is nothing better than dessert stuffed in dessert. Ever since Jenny first stuffed an Oreo inside a chocolate chip cookie, we bloggers have been obsessed with the two-in-one … {continue reading}
