Ice Cream Week: “S’more {Brownie} Ice Cream” (Day 6)

S'More Ice Cream

“S’More Ice Cream” from Life Made Simple

I never was a big fan of the Pinterest fads like “S’more this” and “Pumpkin that”. They just don’t seem to have a ton of substance too me. Not that the recipes are necessarily bad, just that the fact that suddenly everything has to be themed on some dish or treat that we enjoy once in a while seems pointless. But this is not one of those times. While I have begun to tune things like that out, this definitely caught my attention. Mostly because it looks like a massive pile of really good chocolate ice cream.  And the idea of throwing in marshmallows and graham crackers is just diversifying the awesome. I’m not so sure about adding chocolate chips because I’m not big on large chunks of chocolate like that in my ice cream. So I might substitute brownies and call in a “S’more Brownie Ice Cream”. Seems like a good plan to me!


Cupcakes:Classic, Not A Fad

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about how cupcakes are on their way out and that the newest food fad in DC is doughnuts. I seriously hope not because there is no way that a doughnut can stand up against a cupcake. I understand how macarons were popular there for like… a few months but this is one of those battles I don’t even think it’s worth discussing. Cupcakes are classic and will continue to be classic. Doughnuts are great but they aren’t classy. They’re doughnuts. Cupcakes are mini cakes. End of story.

Hail to the Cupcake!
