It's Cookie Time!

This year, i missed my opportunity to buy a box of girl scout cookies. which is actually quite sad because they are delish and i used to be a girl scout so i like to support the girls. however i was wondering the ice cream isle and i stumbled upon something glorious. Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream. Usually i would never by Edy's ice cream because its not the best quality. however, i made an exception for the thin mints. imagine fluffy chocolate ice cream with thin mint cookie crumbles. the perfect blend of chocolaty-ness and minty-ness. if i had not missed my opportunity to buy girl scout cookies, i would have made girl scout cookie chip-witches with the ice cream. so i am encouraging you to do that. go girl scouts!

The Greatest Nut Butter Since Crunchy

I love peanut butter. I sit around and think about it a lot. i put it in everything, from cookies to stir fry. i am that girl who eats it out of the jar with a spoon. this peanut butter happens to be my favorite. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl from Peanut Butter & Co. is the definition of food-gasim. each spoonful is filled with loving raisins and flavorful cinnamon. this peanut butter often finds itself on toast, celery, apples, bananas, or just on a spoon. the flavor balance is just perfect, and the raisin to peanut butter ratio is exact. I have been known to buy 3 jars of this stuff at a time. another great peanut butter by the guys at Peanut Butter & Co. is dark chocolate dreams. i do love dark chocolate, and i do love peanut butter, but somehow the combo of both spread onto bread just is not what im looking for. i would rather have my pb and fluff. however, this dark chocolate dreams peanut butter does AMAZING things to cookies. at this point in my life, i cannot set the over on 'Bake' without stirring in a spoonful of dark chocolate dreams into the batter. i must go now, there is a jar in the kitchen calling my name.
