Desserts »Deep Chocolate Vita Tops

vitatopsA product called “Vitatops” doesn't necessarily sound like a delicious thing but, to my surprise, these microwavable muffin tops were pretty tasty. At 100 calories each, they make a much more reasonable dessert than most, fat belly (aka muffin top) wise. Fresh Direct now carries these.

Recipes »Waffles with Mint Chocolate Chip Icecream

mint chip ice cream and wafflesMichelle’s house was always to funnest to stay for sleepovers in junior high and high school, her little terrier Mikey coming down to smell our breathe in the morning aside, it was a teenage dream. The basement was all ours and it had a pool table and sleeping bags, the boys we allowed to occasionally hang out with us lived nearby and we always ate at least one bowl of cake batter a night.

The icing on the cake, almost literally was in the morning when we were allowed to prepare waffles with mint chocolate chip ice cream for breakfast.

Jim and I indulged in this decadent breakfast today and it made me feel less of an adult, ready to go to the mall and check out boys.

Desserts »Dunkin Donuts Kreme

dunkin donuts kremeLook I may not be the skinniest miniest in the room but I'm no orca and to be honest, it's kind of amazing considering the stuff I used to eat. Dunkin Donuts features these tasty treats called Kremes : take one powdered sugar donut and stuff it full of really, really sugary icing. I used to eat two, count them two of these for breakfast as a teen. Good lord..

I decided, despite the possibly hairy eyeballs from kids who thought I was betraying my beloved Peter Pan Bakery, (recently endorsed by Liz Lemon) to head over to the local Dunkin that displaced Greenpoint's only good Thai spot a few years back and try this treat once again. The adorable polish kid who (as I overheard), was nice enough to take Anna's shift yet again, informed me that there was only one left. I am lucky, because according to bloggers, some states have discontinued the vanilla kreme indefinitely.

Apparently a three hundred and forty calorie breakfast bound to give you cavities is a local favorite. It wasn't quite as stuffed with icing as I had remembered as a kid, I blame the economy and Dunkin cutting corners, but despite a cry of protest from my tummy, I have to say, it was still good in a very, very guilty way.

Recipes »Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies I don't really bake anything, but I love it whenever these cookies are baked for me. The two sticks of butter make all the difference.
