Carton of ice cream (I might use sherbert, mint or strawberry to give you that fun Easter color)
Butter waffle cookies from Trader Joe’s
Round cookie cutter bent into an oval
1) Take your ice cream (the boxed kind works best) and cut off a 3/4″ thick slab
2) Use your cookie cutter and cut out ovals from the ice cream
3) Set the ovals on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put the sheet in the freezer to firm up
4) While you wait, cut out 9.5″x2.5″ strips of parchment paper to use as holders for the finished product
5) Once the ice cream has chilled for a bit, transfer to the cookies with a spatula
6) For a little extra sweetness, add decorative chocolate sprinkles; simply roll the edges through the sprinkles for an even coating
7) For the final touch, wrap in parchment paper and secure with waxed thread or baker’s twine then freeze until ready to serve.

I have had my eye on the new Epiphanie camera bags but these photos by Michele Waite of her new bag have totally sold me. I am even kind of digging the red color! (suddenly my wish list is getting longer…oopsJ)Photos Courtesy:

I know I am jumping the gun by saying it is officially “ice tea” season but I can’t help it… between the recipe and the sunshine in the photo I am craving some tea. I wonder how this would taste with agave nectar instead of honey?
Apple and Honey Iced Tea
3 cups water, boiling
4 tea bags
1/3 cup honey
3 cups apple juice
Steep tea bags in hot water for 5 minutes. Strain out tea bags, and stir in honey and juice. Mix until honey is dissolved. Chill and serve over ice. Serves 6-8

I love frosting so the idea that I get to put my own frosting on my cupcake and nobody can judge the 2 inch layer I apply is fabulous!! I also love the use of wooden tough depressors!!

They say you either bake or cook but usually not both and I am definitely NOT a baker! However, these fun little cupcake kits are making me feel adventurous! Maybe some cupcake batter is in my near future after all!
I love green and I love
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
