Eats // Spiked crushed watermelon popsicles

I may be a week late, but better late than never to let you in on the spiked, crushed watermelon popsicle recipe I made for Lulu’s last week! Technically I’m not late, I just sensed you needed a popsicle recipe specifically for this weekend, am I right?

Don’t worry, there’s also shared how to make a non-spiked version, but what we should really be taking away from this is that they have the rind! I mean, how cute is that?! Pop on over there to see the how to, and I’ll catch you on Monday with more goodies! xo

A happy Thanksgiving and my yearly recipe

I’m gearing up for Thanksgiving this week with my yearly chocolate covered strawberry turkey recipe and crossing every limb I have for the miracle of seeing snow in Houston since I won’t be making it back to the east coast for the holiday. I’ll be laying low until next week with the exception of a few exciting tid-bits of news here and there but I’m wishing you lots of turkey induced naps and pieces of pie you don’t need but eat anyways.

Now, how many of you will be heading out for Black Friday? I’m terribly too impatient for lines and camping out, but if you have any online deals that I should know about I’m all ears!

Eats // Hot Chocolate Bread

Prepare yourselves everyone, ’cause this may blow your mind. It certainly blew my mind when I first heard that such desserts were possible. What is it? Ice. Cream. Bread. Yes!

All you need to do is combine your favorite ice cream flavor, some flour, and voila! You’ve got a dense, moist bread that goes perfectly with tea or coffee, and with winter fast approaching, I decided a seasonally flavored bread was in order. This Hot Chocolate Bread with extra marshmallows is perfect for the rainy/snowy day in, wrapped in warm blankets with a piping hot cup of coffee or milk.

  • 1 pint hot chocolate ice cream, softened (or whatever your favorite ice cream is!)
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • marshmallows

Start off by preheating the oven to 355 degrees F. Mix together softened ice cream and flour. It will come off as kind of crumbly, and that is totally fine! Pour into a greased or lined loaf pan and top off with marshmallows.

Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the edges are pulling away from the sides. And… you’re done!! Easy as cake.
