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

Holiday Tidings -- Nutcracker Suite Inspired Mixed Media Christmas Card

For our family Christmas card this year I created a mixed-media collage using bits of vintage paper, ephemera, and vintage images printed from the computer.  The Nutcracker is "played" by my youngest daughter (who fancies herself a bit of a tomboy).  The body of the "Nutcracker" is from an old French paper doll set. "Clara" is "played" by my eldest daughter.  Her body was made from a copy of a photograph of my paternal grandmother when she was a child.  After completing the collage, I scanned it in to my computer and uploaded it to an online service that printed the image on personalized postcards.  The postcards were a no-brainer, since they were unique, cost-effective, and a greener option than our usual Christmas cards, since they use less paper and don't require envelopes.

To all of the wonderful people who've made my year special by being a part of the positive vibes and creative sharing here at Rook No. 17, I wish you the warmest and happiest of holidays.  

I'm taking a few days off from the blogosphere to enjoy some time with my husband and daughters, and am determined to spend as much time in my new fuzzy slippers as is possible.

Here's to you enjoying your greatest joys and comforts just the same.
