Toffee Malt Cookies

If you’re not familiar with malt.  Familiarize yourself with it.  Just not here.  I’m not going to go into detail as to what it is or how it came about.  Because I’m not sure myself and every time I try to tell you people something I get that one asshole emailing me telling, “That’s not true.”  They have nothing else better to do than sit on the internet and tell people they’re wrong.  

Fudge Brownie Cookies

I was originally going to call these “Double Fudge Cookies” since I already have a brownie cookie recipe in my repertoire.  Everyone that had the pleasure of being a tester or stole a cookie said, “It’s like a brownie!”  So they are the Fudge Brownie Cookie.  Appropriate.  

Orange Ice Cream with Pistachios and Cinnamon Tequila Cherries

Fun Fact: I had made the Cherry Tequila Sunrise as an afterthought.  I originally soaked the cherries to make this ice cream.  When you’re not looking or paying attention and you just let go and go with life’s flow.  That’s when good things happen.  Life is like that.  Unless you’re driving.  I’ve let myself go and wandered while driving and almost took out a guardrail.  A dog.  Some bushes.  Other cars. People. 

Vanilla Jell-O Pudding Buttercream

Is this considered a food hack??  I guess it depends on who you ask.  When I was growing up you’d be considered a lazy bastard.  Nowadays, everyone is just too damn sensitive so it’s not nice to call people lazy bastards.  We have to call it a food hack.  I get it now.  You’re not a lazy bastard, it’s a food hack.  Wink, wink…

Cherry Tequila Sunrise

Fun fact:  It’s called a Tequila Sunrise because you drink it when you wake up in the morning. I don’t know if that’s true.  Actually, I’m sure it’s not.  I’m not going to Yahoo it to even find out.  Because I don’t care.  I myself think it’s pathetic and just downright sad to drink first thing in the morning.  Doesn’t mean I don’t, I just think it’s sad. For me though, thankfully I don’t crawl out of bed until noon.  I don’t prefer this time but my body does.  He’s a stubborn son of a bitch.  I lay in bed in the morning and say, “Oh man summers almost over.  I should get up and go outside and enjoy as much as possible.”  Then my body laughs and we go back to sleep. Tequila Sunrise is right up there for me as a favorite drink.  I’m more of a beer drinker but in the morning..err afternoon, while I’m getting ready for the day I prefer something a little more on the fruit side or healthier side. I’m …

Vanilla Frosting Funfetti Popsicles

I’m a fat kid at heart.  I think a lot of people are.  Who didn’t eat frosting right out of the can as a kid?  If you didn’t you probably had a pretty shitty childhood.  Boring at the very least.  Your mom was probably the type that was on your ass for everything you did.
