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

Organize & Label with Vintage Sunbeam Jar Labels {free printables}

While antiquing a few weeks ago I came across a stash of vintage labels from Sunbeam.  I love the graphic of the sweet little girl and the cheerful red and white border.  The labels are the perfect size to affix to small jars, and because they're blank, you can write whatever you like.  What a fun way to get organized with retro style!  Enjoy!

Free Vintage Graphics: Vintage Alphabet Nursery Blocks {ABC}

  Many years ago, I shared these sweet images from my collection and asked readers to create witty captions for them for a chance to win a prize. I was completely bowled over by the creativity, cleverness, and wickedly funny contributions that were shared! (To see what readers came up with, visit HERE ) Since then, I have had several requests for the images themselves, and have always been happy to send them to anyone who felt a creative spark. W - Wiley the Wolf wondered why the whistling girl wore red. W is for Wisecracker: Excuse me Miss, do you have any Grey Poupon? I figured that it was high time to put all of the graphics in one place so that they are easy to find, download and share. If you make anything with these images, please show off your craftiness on the Rook No. 17 Facebook Fan Page: HERE . Please feel free to download and use for non-commercial purposes. Enjoy!
