What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I have a hard time choosing one – you should see me in an ice cream shop. I sample as many as they will let me, and then still can’t make up my mind! But chocolate peanut butter anything is at the top of the list, and it is TheBetterHalf’s absolute favorite, so that is what I usually end up getting. And I have never had a better peanut butter chocolate ice cream flavor than the Double Peanut Butter Chip from McConnell’s. I take my ice cream very seriously so you can trust me when I say it is the absolute best. Then, when you sandwich it between brownies, and add some mini peanut butter cups to the mix, well the result is one of the best summer treats ever – Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches.

You don’t have to take my word for it though on the goodness of McConnell’s…I want to give YOU 6 pints of their awesome ice cream. Shipped from Santa Barbara right to your front door – scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!…

But the one thing I do like about the heat is that it gives me an excuse to eat ALLLLL of the ice cream. I seriously have some form of ice cream / frozen yogurt / gelato every day of the summer. And that is why I am SO excited to be hosting an awesome GIVEAWAY today for a KitchenAid Artisan 5Qt Stand Mixer AND the Ice Cream Maker Attachment.  Scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!  …

Yellow Birthday Cake with Peanut Butter Chocolate Frosting |

Happy 2nd Birthday to Chez CateyLou! My little blog is two years old today! And to celebrate, I made a birthday cake!  Because birthdays need cake.  And sprinkles.  Lots of sprinkles!

Our absolute favorite dessert flavor is chocolate peanut butter. TheBetterHalf and I are crazy for anything with that combo. Muffins. Brownies. Cookies. Cake. I even made peanut butter chocolate chips pancakes for breakfast this weekend (must share that recipe with you ASAP!) So when I was deciding what kind of cake to bake for the big 2nd birthday, I knew that chocolate and peanut butter had to be involved – Yellow Birthday Cake with Peanut Butter Chocolate Frosting, and a little extra peanut butter filling in the center.  This is one amazing cake!!

And to celebrate Chez CateyLou’s 2nd birthday, I’m hosting a giveaway of $50 to Amazon!!  Scroll to the bottom of the post to join the party (aka enter the giveaway)!!
