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.

Book Review: Wonder by R.J. Palacio
A Must-Read for Tweens

When I find a good book, I can't help but shout it from the rooftops.
I'm a bibliophile -- Book Lover -- it's right there in my bio.
And this book...this book is a treasure.

For my graduate course in teaching literacy (for grades 4-8) this term, we're required to read eight books written for young adults.  I couldn't be happier that I picked Wonder by R.J. Palacio for my first read.

"Wonder is essentially ... a wonder. It's well-written, engaging, and so much fun to read that the pages almost turn themselves. More than that, Wonder touches the heart in the most life-affirming, unexpected ways, delivering in August Pullman a character whom readers will remember forever. Do yourself a favor and read this book – your life will be better for it." - Nicholas Sparks, #1 New York Times bestselling author

This book is an absolute must-read for every middle school aged child. It's a story about friendship, being true to yourself, "popularity", beauty, and being human. The story is told from multiple perspectives, a simple device that demonstrates to the young reader how there's more to everyone's story than what you see on the surface. Get this book into the hands of your middle-schooler today!

 This is NOT a paid or sponsored review.  This book was my choice to read, and my pleasure to share.
