Salted Peanut Ice Cream Sandwiches

It's time to scroll down this post and look at these ice cream sandwiches. LOOK. AT. THEM. Aren't they just beautiful in all their melty, drippy glory?

It's summer. It's hot. Like, really, really hot in New York City. So, naturally ice cream is needed to keep cool. In the shop I work in we sell these ice cream sandwiches called It's-It. If you're from San Francisco you know all about these ice cream sandwiches. 

Let's say these Salted Peanut Ice Cream Sandwiches were inspired by a San Franciscan classic. 

LET'S GET ON TO THESE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES. (I'm not shouting at you, I'm just very excited!)

These ice cream sandwiches are more like Iceberger's than It's-it, though. A shout out to my Irish summers. 

Here's the deal with these sandwiches- shop bought vanilla ice cream is sandwiched between a homemade chocolate cake.

WAIT...it's not just plain vanilla ice cream. We can't have that. I added buttery, roasted salted peanut to the ice cream. HALLELUJAH.

Maple Coconut Granola

The is a serious granola. It is packed full of nuts, dried fruit, seeds and shredded coconut. AHHH MAN, I'm so excited for you to make this! 

This recipe makes a hella lot of granola, not that that is a bad thing. It'll keep for weeks in an airtight container. It's actually great, you'll have breakfast covered for a long ass time, a delicious crunchy thing to snack on and a topping for just about everything from yoghurt to ice cream to pancakes. Yeah, I said it-granola on pancakes. You're game for that?

I've been craving granola a lot recently. Also sushi. I could eat sushi all day, everyday.

Spicy Black Bean and Charred Corn Salsa

Who's binge watching the new season of Orange Is The New Black?! Is it amazing? Have you already finished the season? Did you watch it all in one day? I plan on watching the entire season on my next day off. I see myself sitting on the couch in my pajamas all day. I will only move from the couch for the obvious things: food, water and bathroom breaks.  

This Spicy Black Bean and Charred Corn Salsa will be by my side as I watch OITNB. It'll be my viewing buddy, and I won't feel so bad about eating ALL of it because it's just vegetables. However, what I eat with it will be my downfall. I'll have to give myself a limited amount of tortilla chips.
