Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

mint-chocolate-chip-ice-cream-1

That kind of sounds like a stutter, doesn’t it? Chocolate Mint Chocolate Ice Cream. Why the double Chocolate? Well, that’s because I have Chocolate Mint. Did you know there is such a thing? There is! It’s mint, it has a brownish tinge to the edges, and it smells and tastes vaguely of cocoa. Strangest thing, […]

Frozen Chocolate Coffee Mousse

demarle-mousse-1

Sometimes you just want to be a little fancy. I get that. I want to be fancy sometimes too. Instead of cupcakes, I’ll bake mini-cakes in fluted liners (still a cupcake, but so stylish); Instead of a big pie, I’ll make mini tarts and gussy them up. And instead of mousse in a bowl, I’ll […]

IMG_4229

Last week I attended the Blogger Bash in New York City. As an AMBASSADOR. My first foray into the mom/lifestyle blogging event, and I was lucky enough to be chosen not only as a VIP, but as an AMBASSADOR.  This roll came with lots of wonderful opportunities, some behind-the-scenes adventures, some great meals, some NEW […]

#UniteMonday or Mom of the Year Award Goes Not to ME

sussevcamp

As parents, we all do things we give ourselves grief over. At least I THINK we all do. I know I do. Instead of feeling guilty about it, I’m joining the Sisterhood of Motherhood and celebrating #UniteMonday. Every Monday follow the hashtag #UniteMonday on Twitter and Facebook and share any of your rules you bent […]

Blueberry Muffin French Toast

blueberry-muffin-french-toast

I love working with Krusteaz.  It’s not work.  It’s play.  Delicious, tantalizing play. Take for example, a challenge they presented me with recently, to use their already scrumptious Wild Blueberry Muffin mix in a new and different way. Personally, I adore eating them straight out the oven, slathered in butter.  But that’s hardly new and […]

Easy Buffalo Chicken Salad

buffalo-chicken-salad-3

This recipe name may have you thinking it’s going to be complicated.  Having to make a sauce, and cook, and chop, and well, spend time in a kitchen. But that’s where you are wrong. This salad couldn’t be simpler, thanks to Al Fresco, a company that asked me if I’d like to test out a […]

Fourth of July with Krusteaz

rosemary-strawberry-chicken-waffles

I hate having to work over a holiday, don’t you? But here’s the thing…I cook as a JOB.  And cooking is what people tend to do over the holidays, especially in the summer. So what to do?  Cook?  Not cook?  Blog, not blog? Both. As an ambassador for Krusteaz, I get to try out all […]

Kick It this Summer with Jif To Go Dippers

jif-to-go

I get paid to do a lot of fun things.  Take for example, being hired by Jif (yep, the Peanut Butter folks!) and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network to tell you about a cool thing happening this summer. Have you heard of Jif to Go?  It’s great for busy summer days, those days you […]

Pumpkin Pie Crème Brulee

Who here loves crème brulee?  Who here loves pumpkin pie? Who here has ever combined the two? Luckily, I am in the mood to share this creamy, full-of-great-flavor recipe with you, just in case you want to try it yourself.  As you may be aware, I have been working with Libby’s Pumpkin here recently, and […]
