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.

Free Clipart: 1960s Nurses, Doctors, and Retro Get-Well Graphics

It's a real bummer to be starting summer vacation with the wheezes, sneezes and aches of a nasty cold, but I'm assured a swift recovery thanks to my loving and nurturing little "staff" here at home who are keeping me well supplied with hot tea, warm blankets and plenty of tissues.

To pay the healing vibe forward, I'm sharing  this sweet little collection of retro graphics featuring nurses, hospital staff, and mid-century style.  They're from the 1962 book  The Hospital  by Mable Pyne, which never fails to put a smile on my face.

I think these images would be perfectly adorable on a get-well-soon card or on a tea towel for a friend graduating from nursing school.  What would you make with them?

This is my favorite image of all -- a historical piece that shows the different styles of nurses' caps from different hospitals around the country during the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Here are some of the hospital staff in their candy stripes and smart uniforms:

These two images are a bit odd, but definitely add to the retro charm of the book:
