Oreo Ice Cream "Cake"

I recently had a birthday.  My daughter loves to help me in the kitchen, so I had her help me make a cake.  We decided to make an oreo ice cream "cake". 

I love all things oreo (except those weird flavored ones, like strawberry or bubble gum, or whatever they are).  This ice cream cake had the perfect amount of oreos.  It has a buttery oreo crust on the bottom, topped with vanilla ice cream, homemade chocolate sauce, whipped topping, and then topped off with a few more oreos. 

I made this recipe last summer, but forgot about it.  I found it on Becky Bakes, but changed it a little bit.  Some of the layers are straight from cartons, which is super easy and still yummy. 

I made my own chocolate sauce to drizzle between the layers of vanilla ice cream and whipped topping.  I used the chocolate sauce from my ├ęclair cake recipe.  You could just as well use a jar of hot fudge sauce. 

It's been several days since I finished off the last piece of this cake that was in the freezer.  Today my daughter asked if she could have some for lunch.  She was shocked that it was gone (and then realized that ice cream probably wouldn't stay frozen until lunchtime at school, even in her thermos).  A few hours later, my son asked if we had any left.  I guess they'll have to realize that ice cream cake doesn't last long at our house.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
