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

Sophisticated Vintage Style in the 21st Century -- A Shabby Apple Giveaway!


Dresses from Shabby Apple

When you think of classic, sophisticated style icons, who do you think of?  Audrey Hepburn? Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis? Coco Chanel?  While some might argue that style of their caliber is but a thing of the past, I can disprove that contention with two words:  Shabby Apple.  

I am delighted to introduce Shabby Apple as the latest member of the Rook No. 17 sponsor line-up, after joining their affiliate program this month.  As Rook No. 17 continues to bring you original recipes, crafts and ideas for inspired living, I am happy to also have the opportunity to share a few select companies that I think are exceptional.  These are places I personally adore, patronize, and come back to time and time again.

Shabby Apple is a company that was started by two friends on a mission to create dresses "that make dressing simple...a return to what dresses were always meant to be..."  Today, the Shabby Apple line not only includes timeless, classic and vintage inspired women's dresses, but maternity, preteen and little girls dresses as well.  

To celebrate the launch of the affiliate program on Rook No. 17, Shabby Apple is offering 10% off your purchase through October 14, 2011, when you use this coupon code:  rookno1710off.

Picture yourself in this dress...
GIVEAWAY ~ One of my favorite dresses at Shabby Apple is the "Spanish Steps", so named because it was inspired by the classic Audrey Hepburn film, Roman Holiday.  Can you see yourself in this classic summer frock, weaving through the streets of Rome on your Vespa?  Well, I can't send you to Rome, but Shabby Apple has generously offered to give away one Spanish Steps dress to a lucky Rook No. 17 reader.
