ice cream carrier

Even though it is one of the most refreshing, most satisfying things you can eat in the summer, ice cream is not a very portable food. It melts too quickly in the heat and, unless you’re dishing it out in your kitchen and carrying each bowl outside to the yard/deck/patio, it just isn’t going to make it very far.

Walking on custard

I have a sudden craving for custard, although I don’t think I would attempt this trick myself – partially because I don’t have a pool available, but mostly because I can’t be bothered to make that much custard. via growabrain Read More »

Mrs Fields 30th anniversary

The wildly successful chain was started in 1977 by Debbi Fields, whose career began with a love of baking and progressed from there.

Pimp that Animal Cookie!

┬áBlame it on the “super size me” world that we live in, but I’m a big fan of the site Pimp That Snack, where users create their own giagantic – a.k.a. pimped – versions of popular snack foods. Top ranked projects include the Creme de la Creme Egg, Giant Twix, Rubiks Cake and a McDonalds Apple Pie. Since I first started visiting the site, I’ve ... Read More »
