A Pregnancy Sweet Tooth

Man o man – this pregnancy has given me a major sweet tooth.  I used to be a lot of crunch and salty and now I’m all, “cookie – get in my belly”.

I’m not ashamed to admit my husband is out of town and I made myself a “little” pan of brownies this weekend. Don’t worry – there is still 2/3 left to take to work tomorrow.

Fudgy Brownies

YUMM. So so good.  These are perfectly gooey and they melt in your mouth! Add a scoop of ice cream and you’re good to go.

Monster Cookies

It’s time for Tim and I to finally meet our neighbors.  What better way then to introduce ourselves with baked goods.  I found this amazing Monster Cookie recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction and made a fresh batch.

These cookies are peanut buttery, with lots of chocolate and softer than your average monster cookie.

Ice Cream Sundae’s

Sometimes Often Every day I just want a big bowl of ice cream…

I would say there are moments in each day where I think, “I just want a little scoop. One tiny, itsy-bitsy scoop of ice cream.”  What’s the harm? I usually have to talk myself out of said ice cream, but sometime’s it’s important to let yourself splurge.

Ice Cream

We had friends over the other week and we had Ice Cream Sundae’s for dessert.  I thought this was a great dessert for a big group of people because it’s fun, easy, everyone get’s to create their own and did I say it was easy?


I offered a couple different options:

  • ice cream (my favorite is homestyle vanilla)
  • sprinkles (for the hubby)
  • caramel
  • chocolate sauce
  • M&M’s
  • fresh raspberries (not pictured)  [Read more…]
