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 Perfect Summer Dress~
The SUNSHINE Dress from Fresh Produce

A girl can dream, right?

I love fashion, but have a hard time finding clothes that fit my cakesmithing curves.  As a mother of two, I like my clothes to be chic but versatile, easy to care for and comfortable without being frumpy.  I long for perfectly fitting frocks that can go from a walk on the beach with girlfriends, to chauffeuring kids to after-school-activities, to sipping a glass of wine at sunset in an outdoor bistro with grace. 

Sometimes, dreams come true...

It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to review the Sunshine Dress from Fresh Produce.  This dress is made from super-soft 100% cotton. It has a flattering empire waist and scoop neckline, raw edge detailing and a double flounce hem -- the perfect flutter of feminine detail! 


The Sunshine Dress comes in more than a dozen colors and is available in standard and plus sizes.  The soft yet heavy cotton swings, rather than clings so it's flattering to both those with curves and without.  It's a wonderful dress for a day at the beach or lake, as a tunic over leggings, or as a flirty cocktail dress with heels and chunky necklace.

This week, my girls and I are celebrating our first week of summer vacation!  So, I put on my Sunshine Dress from Fresh Produce and had some outdoor fun!
