French Toast Roll-ups

Without getting into too much detail, my baby girl had a stomach bug and my husband had food poisoning from a local fast food joint. Chocolate Chip Cookie Bailey’s Milkshakes. This is a story all about how I put giant chocolate chip cookies into a blender.

With homemade Bailey’s. Again. The Healthiest Blackberry Tart & Is Natural Sugar a Poison? Ooooh the black berries are sooo yummy right now I can hardly resist popping every other berry into my mouth- one for me one for the bowl, one for me……no actually I am sooo strict that I tend to pick til the bowl is full then sample a few.

The Healthiest Blackberry Tart & Is Natural Sugar a Poison?

But not my kids. But that’s okay, these berries are packed with antioxidants so I was pleased to see them gobbling up handful after handful. The nice thing about this blackberry tart recipe is that in the heat of the summer you don’t even have to turn the oven on! These raw tarts are incredibly delicious and will have your guests asking for 2nds and even 3rds! You can whip these up in no time at all or just prep the mixtures and fill the cups and top with berries just before serving. The ingredient in these tarts are nutritious starting with the fresh berries that are one of the highest sources of antioxidants. Raw lemon juice in the filling is also a super ingredient as it is known for it’s antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Pip & Ebby - Pip & Ebby - Hot cocoa cookies.

I am a teeny bit obsessed with the cookies from the most recent issue of EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine.

That’s what this is. Pure In.San.It.TEEEEE. You know those days when you’re in desperate need of sugar and you’ve already downed more gummy vitamins than recommended while seriously considering how many more you can ingest without causing severe harm to your internal organs? Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Monday is not my favorite day of the week.

I have a hard time coming back to work, especially after a fun holiday weekend. We went hiking and spent time at the Dewey’s. We enjoyed the pool, a bbq, fireworks, etc. It was a perfect weekend. On Saturday while the guys were playing “blood ball” in the pool, I baked cookies. The cookies melt in your mouth. Homemade Junk Food. Homemade Twix bars.

I uploaded pictures of this recipe yesterday onto Flickr, but didn’t get to telling you all about it because I was feeling a little lackadaisical after that whole seven days in a row of posting thing.

Three hours later, I received this comment: “Omg, post the recipe already!” Hmmph! I thought. The natives are getting restless. Grasshopper Brownies. My grandmother was a pretty fly lady, though I am not sure anyone called her “fly” in her lifetime. She loved anything glamorous and I’m pretty sure she saw the point of doing a whole lot in moderation. She’d send my sister and I (beware, frightening New Jersey-in-the-80s references ahead) glittery and puff-painted jaw clips and manes from the flea markets in Florida, she never discouraged the splattered and acid-washed jeans and neon slouch socks I wish someone would have formed an intervention over (shudder) and I specifically remember her finding me a pair of silver moccasins that in my mind couldn’t have been any cooler.

So, it should come as no surprise that when she made brownies, she didn’t just make any old brownies. Instead, they were three layer affairs; one chocolate, one mint and then a chocolate topping and she didn’t just stop there. The Londoner: Slutty Brownies. Now I don’t want to over sell this, so I’m going to be conservative and simply say, that these are… The Best Brownies In The WORLD.

The Londoner: Slutty Brownies

I know, big statement. They’re called Slutty Brownies because they’re oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy. They’re best served warm from the oven, with good quality vanilla ice cream (devastatingly I didn’t have any in the freezer this time, so I guess I’ll just have to make them again). They take about 45mins to make, including baking time. The ultimate comfort food, whipped up within the hour. You will need… 1 Box of cookie mix, 1 Box of brownie mix, 2 Eggs, 2 Packs of Oreos (double stuffed ones are even better if you can find them) Some oil & your favourite ice-cream (optional) Preheat your oven to 350F, 180C, gas mark 4. How To Cook Like Your Grandmother. I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace.
