Chonky Boys: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that Scream Summer!

Featuring my thick and nuggy Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookies, these ice cream sandwiches are the stuff that summer dreams are made of.  If you've ever had the Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich at Disneyland , you are going to LOVE these!  These big and bold chocolate chip cookies are based on a recipe from my culinary school studies at Auguste Escoffier, but with a few modifications to give them that Jennuine touch.  They make the perfectas book for a fat slice of real vanilla bean ice cream.  And those mini chips?  You just gotta have that extra cronch! Thank goodness this recipe only makes 8 sandwiches, otherwise I would be eating them for breakfast lunch and dinner.  This way, my big family can help save me from my inner child diet-saboteur.   Print With Image Without Image Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches Yield: 8 Author: Jenn Erickson Loaded with chocolate chips and buttery, brown-sugary vanilla flavor, these mall-sized cookies form a perfect partnership with a

The Annual Creative Captions Contest with Free Vintage Clipart

D: Drusilla Duck was one mean Mother Ducker!

Last October I shared these sweet images from my set of vintage alphabet blocks and asked readers to create witty captions for them for a chance to win a prize.  I was completely bowled over by the creativity, cleverness, and wickedly funny contributions that were shared!  

I'm in great need of some comic relief these days, and with the hustle and hubbub of the holidays nearly upon us, I think we could all use a lighthearted chuckle.  So, I'm pleased to announce that the contest is back for another go-round.  

Rules?  Not too many rules really.  Just keep it clean.  Innuendo is fine (even encouraged), but let's swear off  swear words, eh?  You can enter as many captions as you'd like.  Contest closes at midnight PST on Wednesday, November 3.    I left last year's entries up to help get your gears turning.  Enjoy and have FUN!
