I always love to come across fun and simplistic recipes to make that have (a) ingredients that I can buy at my regular and nothing fancy grocery store and (b) ingredients that I can pronounce and don’t have to “google” to figure out what the heck they are and lastly (c) something that doesn’t require strange utensils. As you can probably figure out from me for the past year since I have been blogging on here – I am a real simple and low-key kind of girl 🙂
Here is a fun, delicious and simple recipe that I came across recently that we make everyone in your house happy. It’s great for the kiddies and also great for the kid in all of us! Here is the recipe for Cake Batter and Sprinkles Dip courtesy of I’m Topsy Turvy that I am sure will be a big time success whenever you make it and people will be asking you to make it again and again. I am making this for my mother’s birthday party next weekend too!
Let me know if you make it and let’s compare notes…

I remember eating creamsickles, fudgesickles…any thing with “sickles” on the end of the word as a kid. The sweet memories of hearing the music from the ice cream man’s truck and whatever us kids were doing? We were totally done and dropped it when the ice cream truck rolled around. As a matter of fact, one of the neighborhood kids took it so seriously, she jumped out from her bath and ran down the street naked to stand in line to get her ice cream. She was only five years old and didnt get the concept that she was streaking…she only knew that when the ice cream man’s music was blaring? You ran outside and stood in line patiently with the other neighborhood kids. Clothed or not haha! Didn’t you hate it when there was a mean ice cream man and he would actually keep driving and make you run after his truck? Oh the meanies!
This also brings to mind Eddie Murphy’s stand up routine from long ago when he talks about his childhood and the ice cream man rolling up the street and the kids running and chasing the ice cream man and the kids screaming “ice cream…ice cream!”
Creamsickles just bring me back to the days of innocence and youth. Days of the ice cream man and playing in sprinklers in the yard on hot summer days and thinking that those days would never end.
Here is a recipe for your own creamsickle concoction – in a cake! – courtesy of Save A Lot. When using these ingredients, keep in mind that you can also vary the product brand and use whatever brands you prefer or that you have on hand – even though Save A Lot’s are quite yummy too (for other Save A Lot recipes click here). Enjoy the cake and I hope when you bite into it that it makes you feel like a kid again and brings you back to the days of standing in line for and chasing the ice cream man too! 🙂

Oreo celebrates it’s 101th birthday this year! There is much debate on how to eat an Oreo cookie. Dunk them in milk, twist off one side and eat the middle first? Or just eat the entire cookie at once. My preference has to always taken off one side and scrape the filling off with my teeth. In honor of this wonderful holiday, here is a delicious recipe for Philly Oreo Cheesecake from Snack Works (make sure to look a their site for more delish recipes!)
Happy 101th birthday, Oreo! Still going strong after all these years 🙂
