Summer is almost over……..school starts next week, and the days of hitting the ground with a running start at 5:00 a.m. will soon commence. It’s crazy – where does the time go?

This is, by far, the best ice cream I’ve made. And it’s among the easiest — just a couple of ingredients, very little effort, and the best, chocolate-y, most decadent result. If you’re not familiar with nutella, check in the grocery store where you find the peanut butter — you’ll probably find it. And when you do, take the jar, bring it home (pay for it first), spread a tablespoon or two on a piece of bread, and taste. Swoon. Repeat. Then make this ice cream. Nutella is, quite frankly, one of the best culinary creations out there — a mixture of chocolate and hazelnuts that almost defies words. It was the inspiration behind my flourless chocolate hazelnut cake, and now this. Nutella Ice Cream | Sugarlaws Nutella Ice Cream | Sugarlaws

Eating out is becoming a more and more popular phenomenon. With fast food taking only minutes out of a day and costing a few dollars, it can be convenient. Likewise, fine dining is also on the rise and can put a considerably larger dent in your wallet. But unless you were a master chef with a keen sense of taste, these recipes were lost to you. Until the internet came along and provided those with the ability to reproduce recipes and post them for the world to see.

Rice Krispie Treat Watermelon I used the standard Rice Krispie Ceral Treat recipe. I had to double it to make mini watermelon. So buy 1 large box of cereal and 2 bags of strawberry marshmallows. You still need to make in two separate batches to make it easier to handle. Rice Krispie Treat Watermelon

Oreo and Peanut Butter Brownie Cakes - StumbleUpon So, after being gone all last week, this has been catch up on the house week. Mostly laundry actually. Man, who knew that a weeks worth of laundry from 5 people could be so daunting. Yikes!! But I am kind of behind on my cooking and baking as well since I've been gone and cleaning. Not to mention, I needed an Oreo fix!
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. Baked Egg Boat recipe - StumbleUpon
Nutella Mug Cake | Family Kitchen - StumbleUpon I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix.

Homemade Baked Mozzarella Sticks | Penelope's Oasis - StumbleUpon Mozzarella sticks are a delicious treat, probably one of the most popular appetizers at restaurants, and a fun party food.
