Chocolate and Fudge Chip Oatmeal Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate chip cookie or an oatmeal raisin cookie? If you had to choose one, which would you go for?? It divides us. Are you disappointed when you bite into a cookie and realise that the chocolate chips are actually plump raisins? Personally, I don't mind. I'm an oatmeal raisin fan, and a chocolate chip fan, too-duh. ALL OF THE COOKIES.

What if you could combine the two-oatmeal and chocolate chip.  What if you could combine the two and make a cake. What if you could combine the two, make a cake and then smother it in a delicious chocolate frosting. 

Yeah? Yeh? Yes? Definately. 

This is an oatmeal cake, studded with chocolate chips AND fudge chunks, just for good measure. 

I'm only thinking of  you when jam packing cakes with nuggets of goodness.

Spicy Salami, Olive and Red Pesto Pizza Rolls

I have written this blog post from home in Ireland. It will be a year before I sit in this house. By the time you read this I will be New York. I've moved here with two friends for a year. My life is going in a completely new direction. It's all very very exciting. 

I will still be blogging and I will be sharing lots of New York inspired recipes with you over the next year! I may fall behind a week or two in the beginning of my move but I will be back blogging weekly as fast as I can!

Right now my life is going in the direction of these pizza rolls. 

I've moved to New York, a place known for its pizza and I'm sharing a pizza inspired recipe with you. That's adorable.....You're adorable. These pizza rolls are adorable. Well, they're more than adorable, they're like bad ass adorable. Bad-orable?

Rice Krispie Bars

Generally, I don't give much thought to how things work themselves out. I either go with the flow or make things happen for myself. I'm not a believer in fate or destiny, but as of recently my life has been going pretty well. Everything seems to be clicking into place. (Everything's coming up Milhouse!). Things are connecting up in ways far beyond my control.  

I've been extremely lucky recently. It's kind of crazy, in a good way, but it also makes me think of when my luck is going to end. I can't so easily accept my good fortune. What's that about? I need to embrace my good times!

Now, these rice krispie bars are a good time So simple to make and SO versatile-rice krispie bars are not just for kids anymore. These ones are studded with M&M's and chocolate covered pretzels. AMAZING.
