There are many desserts that I enjoy, but I think ice cream might be my all-time favorite. The possibilities for add-ins are limitless and I’m of the mindset that the more the better. Oh, and sweet is always preferred over savory or fruity.

Because I can’t necessarily control my spoon from continually dipping into the open ice cream tub in my lap to get that last bit of Oreo cookie that is peeking out and practically begging me to unearth it, I usually have to buy vanilla frozen yogurt. Less cals, less guilt. But vanilla is so blah after a while. That’s why I started creating my own ice cream treats.

I look through whatever is in my pantry, crush it up (if needed), and then mix until smooth. It’s like my own little surprise to myself after dinner. There are two that I keep in regular rotation: Peanut Butter Pretzel and S’More.

PB and Pretzel{Peanut Butter and Pretzel Crisps}

Mix 1 tablespoon of creamy peanut butter in your 1/2 cup of frozen yogurt. Then add 3-5 pretzel crisps into your dish or mug. You can either hand crumble them for bigger pieces or use your spoon to grind them a little finer. Don’t mash too much or you’ll lose out on the crunchiness.


{Graham Crackers, Chocolate Chips & Marshmallow Fluff}

Hand or spoon crunch your 1-2 sheets of graham crackers. I use the honey variety, but you can get fancy with it. Then add in 1 tablespoon chocolate chip morsels and 1 tablespoon of marshmallow fluff. Stir together until roughly blended. So easy. The hardest part is actually pulling out three ingredients.

Last night I had peanut butter and chocolate sprinkles. Maybe try a little sundae bar the next time you’re entertaining! I would love to hear about what you would mix in.


DIY: Hangover Fairy Kit

Hangover FairyI know you’re clamoring to know how it went and I can now officially say that the bachelorette party was a rousing success. Adult women group sleepovers are the best and I’m glad that my apartment was able to handle all the commotion.

One of the surprises I put together for everyone was a hangover fairy kit. I looked around the Internet for ideas of what to include and all-in-all had a pretty good round up. I tried to think of what you would need before, during, or after the big night of fun. It had to be compact and useful. The finishing touch was a reusable bag that I decorated with love and each attendee’s first initial. Oh, and word to the wise, no party from here on out is complete without its own hashtag.
