Sinfully delicious, that’s what these are. I wanted to do something nice for the girls in my dorm who have birthdays, and being a baker, my first thought was cupcakes! I didn’t quite want to make a recipe from scratch; not having much time or resources with school and work.

So, I doctored a cake mix, and it’s still easy and just as good- not like those recipes that have 7-8 other ingredients and it would have been easier just to make the cake mix in the first place. This uses all of the ingredients from the box, but I replaced the oil with an equal amount of butter, and instead of using water, I used ice cream. Yes, I went there- Ice cream in cupcakes.

I didn’t make my own frosting either- I just used a  can of duncan hines frosting creations. It was easy, good, and convenient.

These cupcakes are delicious, easy, and perfect when you want to doctor up a cake mix in a pinch! I freeze them unfrosted and pull them out when needed, letting them thaw before frosting.

Easy Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Ice Cream

No Ice Cream maker required. 

Easy Ice Cream- Caramel, Peanut Butter, and chocolate. No ice cream maker required and only 5 ingredients!

I used to think that there was nothing better than the combination of Peanut Butter and Chocolate.

I was wrong.

Adding caramel enhances that flavor and makes it so much better.

If you’ve spent any amount of time around food blogs, I’m sure you’ve heard of the “easy ice cream” method. 2 cups of whipped cream + a can of sweetened condensed milk and you’ve got yourself the easiest, creamiest, ice cream ever that’s better than storebought. I’m kind of obsessed. It’s smoother and creamier than your traditional ice cream, but I like it so much more. I gave Brian some and after one spoonful he said couldn’t believe that I actually made it.

Helping us out today is Breyers new ice cream toppings. Breyers just released a new line of ice cream toppings and they come in these cute little pouches… which may or may not of been why I bought them… I spend a lot of time walking around grocery Moncler outlet stores trying to find new recipe ideas. (And no, I wasn’t paid for this. I just want you to know exactly what I used.) Instead of pouring hot fudge, caramel, and peanut butter on top, I swirled them into my ice cream.

Easy, 5-ingredient ice cream. Peanut Butter, Chocolate, and Caramel. No ice cream maker needed. |

Best idea ever.

With how easy this ice cream is, you’re never going to want to buy a carton of store bought again.

Homemade Dole Whip

… With only 2 ingredients!


What is a Dole Whip, you ask? Well, at the Magic Kingdom and Polynesian resort at Disney World, and at Disneyland Park, are pineapple/vanilla soft serve ice cream called Dole Whips. And they are amazing and I love them and half the reason I’m looking forward to going to Disneyland this week is Ray Ban outletbecause I want a Dole Whip, dangit.


After a huge two month craving for a Dole Whip, I finally figured how to make my own at home, and I’ve never been happier. (That’s a lie. I was happier the day I got paid to walk around the Magic Kingdom during Disney Orientation.)

Here’s what I used to make this:


All you need is frozen pineapples and cool whip, as well as a blender or food processor. I used a food processor, but only because my blender is really old (it’s almost an antique) and the pineapple chunks were too big for it. You blend or process the pineapples, mix in the cool whip, and blend them one more time to get the chunks out. You’ll then freeze the mixture for two hours then… TADAA! You’ve got yourself a homemade dole whip that’s just as good as the ones at Disney. I made them with my roommate from the Disney College Program, so this is doubly Disney Cast Member Certified and approved.




  • 1 21 oz package frozen pineapple
  • 1- 1 1/2 c whipped topping
  1. If needed, chop up pieces of pineapple to fit into the canister of blender or food processor. Place in canister and blend until pureed. If needed, work in batches.
  2. Pour into bowl and mix in whipped topping. place back into blender or food processor and blend until smooth. (an immersive blender would also work for this.)
  3. place in a shallow dish and freeze for at least two hours. Serve cold.
