Ice cream cake is, without a doubt, the easiest answer to any celebratory cake I’ve ever run across – we’re talking 2 tubs of ice cream, softened and smushed into a cake pan over a cookie crumb crust, with a little something between ’em. That’s the basic recipe – feel free to embellish!

In a desperate attempt to fight the urge to post something green, and believe me it’s not easy – my bottle of green food colouring is calling my name. But today I’m calling all non-baking candy lovers who want to make cookies, but before I get to that – if someone were to ask you…

Calling all chocolate lovers – if you want a blast of chocolate, then this take on brownies is something you will make over and over again. We’re talking the brownie mix, a little oil, a little water and an egg, all mixed together to make a thick paste. Spread it, bake it, score it, bake it some more, snap it, eat it. Now how easy is that? You don’t really expect me to answer that, do you?


Chocolate is a food group – how to chop it, melt it, bake with it, cook with it or eat it directly is one of life’s little pleasures. Get the know-how of all things chocolate and start enjoying beyond a cake or a brownie.
