Ridiculously Photogenic Cookies

Cookies are ridiculously photogenic.

Like, have you ever seen a bad picture of a cookie?

I haven’t.

And because there always happens to be ridiculously photogenic (and delicious) cookies in my house, I decided to take some pictures. Here are a few shots from the photo shoot. Be right back. Going to get myself a cookie.

Who Stole the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?

Not me. 😉

Costco’s chocolate chunk cookies are seriously addictive.

Actually, chocolate chunk cookies in general are addictive.

Ugh. In one brief umbrella statement, cookies are addictive.

These cookies are so soft and chewy, and full of giant chunks of chocolate… it’s impossible to turn them down. Unfortunately, a box of 24 of these babies is sitting on my kitchen counter staring at me and whispering, “Eat me!” I’ve already given into the temptation twice; I had one this morning and another one for an afternoon snack. Damn you, cookies!

Can you resist a soft and chewy chocolate chunk cookie?

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich

I haven’t posted in a while.

Three days to be exact.

I know, I know…

If you guys are wondering where I’ve been… the answer is Jasper! My family and I have been there many times before, and we love everything it has to offer – the wildlife, scenery, tours and excursions. Believe me, it was a much-needed mini vacation after going through the busy month of June. I will be posting some of the many pictures I took throughout this week, so keep your eyes peeled!

Okay… movin’ on! The weather has been extremely hot recently, which means I have been surviving off of salads, sashimi, watermelon, popsicles, ice cream, and ice cream sandwiches. I picked up some oatmeal chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches last week, and I kinda just forgot about them. That is, until today.

I’m not a big fan of oatmeal cookies, even if they contain a crazy amount of chocolate chips; however, I am a firm believer that everything tastes better in ice cream form. Nine times out of ten, I’m right; unfortunately, this time I was wrong.

First off, I just want to say that these ice cream sandwiches taste nothing like an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. The wafers taste like concentrated graham crackers and completely overpower the vanilla ice cream. There was nothing spectacular about the vanilla ice cream, and the bits of chocolate in it were lame. They need to add around three times more of chocolate in order for it to even be noticeable. Overall, I’d rate this 2 stars out of 5.

Have you tried Lucerne’s new Oatmeal Chocolate Chip ice cream sandwich?

P.S. Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian followers!

We Were Mint to Be

Mint chocolate chip ice cream.

It’s one of those things that people either love or hate.

Today is actually my first time trying mint chocolate chip ice cream. And because you all know how much I love ice cream sandwiches, I decided to try it in ice cream sandwich form.

I have to admit, mint chocolate chip ice cream and I were not meant to be. I found it too minty and weird-tasting. (Horrible adjectives, I know.)

Basically, it was like eating toothpaste. Toothpaste with chocolate chips. It’s safe to say I will not be having mint chocolate chip ice cream again anytime soon.
