Ice Cream Brownie Bites

Ice Cream Brownie Bites

You know how the Cookie Monster gobbles down cookies by smashing as much as possible into his face? Yeah. You can call me the Ice Cream Monster. {Are we all done laughing at the image of ice cream dripping down my face? Okay, good.} I’m an ice cream fiend. I love it. It is my downfall. I can’t really resist it… at all. It screams out to me, “Mmmm! Talitha! I’m so good! Come eat me!” And I happily skip off to obey my talking treat.

And since I’m pretending that making this treat is as part of my hold-on-to-summer-as-long-as-I-can mindset, I thought I would share it with you! It is absolutely scrumptious and I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of doing this before! I give you: Ice Cream Brownie Bites!

Prettifying Plain Cupcakes

Prettyifying is a word, right? Well… it is now! Birthdays are a big deal around our house. The include a special dessert, special homemade dinner, and a separate day of a big fancy meal at a restaurant of the birthday-er’s choice. Okay, maybe that isn’t a “huge” deal. But we like to make it as special as possible.

Prettifying Plain Cupcakes

It was the hubby’s birthday last week and I wanted to make it a big deal! I wanted it to feel special despite being away from our families. When it came to making his birthday dessert, he had one request: Funfetti. It’s his all time favorite. I promise he isn’t 12. How was I going to make plain ol’ box mix fancy?

I wanted to figure out a way to make it homemade, but seeing as how we were both sick last week {the hubby says it’s been so quiet since I’ve lost my voice}, I decided to stick with the box mix.

Coconut Shrimp

Good Monday to all of you! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I sure did! I’m going to start the week off by teasing your tastebuds!

The hubby is a big fan of seafood. Me? Not so much. I know, I know. “It’s good for you and┬áblah, blah, blah.” I have yet to find a seafood that I like. Even shrimp.

I’ve tried fresh salmon. Nope. I’ve tried lobster. Ehh. Oh wait… I did enjoy that fresh Maryland crab I had when I was 13. So maybe crab. That’s it.

But the hubby loves it! So every once in a while I decide to be a nice wife and whip him up a batch of his favorites: coconut shrimp.

Homemade Vanilla Coffee Creamer

I’ve been working in the kitchen a lot this week so I decided to give you an extra post this week!

Homemade Vanilla Coffee Creamer

The hubby and I enjoy a good cup of coffee, which in our families, is rare. My mom even hates the smell of coffee {I know, I know… she is crazy!}. The hubby enjoys a hot steaming cup of coffee while I’m a bigger fan of iced coffee {recipe on that coming soon!}.

Recently the hubby has been saying that our store bought brand has a little bit of a weird after-taste. So I decided to try my hand at homemade coffee creamer! It seemed pretty basic: cream and flavoring. And it really was just about that easy! Four ingredients total! And it turned out so good with no funky after-taste!

Healthy Breakfast Cookies

I am a big fan of baking. Though the summer is not normally my baking time. Who wants to turn on the oven in this heat!? Not me!

But I love me some cookies. You can call me the Cookie Monster. But recently, I’ve been trying to cut back on the sweets even though my sweet tooth is screaming for some deliciousness. I caved and decided to make some of my favorite cookies this past week. The oven was turned on during one of the cooler {aka more comfortable} days.
