Classic M&M Cookie Bars

I made a batch of simple and classic M&M cookie bars for Matt’s birthday to go along with some homemade birthday cake ice cream.  I find myself preferring to make cookie bars over regular cookies.  It’s just so much easier to get a thicker cookie without having to worry about them spreading out too much…

Homemade Birthday Cake Ice Cream

Matt turned 34 last week and when I asked him what he’d like for his special birthday dessert, he asked me to surprise him.  His only requirement was that it included some kind of homemade ice cream.  I decided to go very classic birthday, which to me means lots of fun colors!  I whipped up…

Posting an ice cream recipe in the dead middle of winter seems like a perfectly reasonable and logical thing to do, right? Last fall, Matt went out to do some grocery shopping, and unbeknownst to me, he also had a coupon in his pocket for Bed, Bath, & Beyond.  When he came home, he unloaded…

You guys, these brownies are kind of insane.  Seriously. We take a break from our usually healthy lifestyle for one meal a week, and for dessert we were craving something chocolatey, fudgy, ooey gooey, and just flat out slap-your-grandma delicious.

Sinful Saturday – You’re Doing it Right

Many of you are aware of the nutritional debauchery that goes on in our house during a little celebration known as Sinful Sunday. If not, here’s how it goes down:  Matt and I eat a pretty controlled, healthy diet for most of the week.   But one day, usually Sunday, we relax and allow ourselves…
