A Girl Can Dream

I usually don't remember having dreams at night, but I have been having some very strange ones lately. The other night I dreamt that George Clooney was after me with a stun gun. First of all, I'm not even a big George Clooney fan. I mean I'm not blind, I get it, but he's not someone I pay much attention to. Anyway, he was after me with a stun gun and I was trapped on an entire floor of a hotel or office building and I was just frantically trying to get away. Number 1-George, you don't need the stun gun. I will surrender. Number 2 - Why was I running?!

George! Come back! I'll leave the door open!

The cupcake bakery Sprinkles has arrived in Houston! It was the first cupcake bakery and the first shop was in Beverly Hills. Sprinkles is very big in LA and it has finally arrive in Houston. I tried one (OK a few) yesterday and they were yummy. They are a cross between Crave and Dessert Gallery. They are not as sweet and sugary as Dessert Gallery cake but a little more sweet and sugary than Crave cupcakes. They are not as dense as Crave cupcakes but they have pretty much the same look. The store is super tiny and they aren't cheap, but definitely worth trying! The store is on Westheimer in Highland Village, across from Crate and Barrel. Yum!

Fudge Jumbles!

Can someone please tell me they remember Fudge Jumbles. It was a mix you bought at the store that made these cookie/cake type brownies. So good! Very 80s. No one I asks remembers, so to make sure I wasn't imagining things, I did a search and found this link about them. At least I know someone remembers them now and they really did exist! Someone posted this recipe for those of us that miss Fudge Jumbles. I haven't tried it yet but I plan to soon.

1 c. butter
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour

3 c. quick oatmeal
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. chopped walnuts

Cake balls that is! I am a little behind with this trend. I know I read an article about them a while back but never really thought about it again. Well my cousin made some and brought a few over yesterday and they are delicious! I can't wait to make some! They pretty much consist of torn up cake mashed together with frosting which are formed into balls and dipped in chocolate. You can use a store bought cake mix, a tub of frosting and chocolate bark for melting. Simple, yet yummy! Click here for the recipe she used. Read about them on Bakerella who even puts them on sticks and makes cake pops! And lastly, visit The Cake Ball Company who specializes in these yummy treats.

Rice to Riches

I just got back from New York City and I visited one of my favorite places while I was there, Rice to Riches. It sells flavored rice pudding! OK if that doesn't sound good to you, it didn't to me either the first time I went. I have never liked rice pudding, but once I had it there I was hooked. This time I had Almond Shlamond. Just a few of their flavors include Take me to Tiramisu, Sex Drugs and Rocky Road, Chocolate Chip Flirt, Cocunut Coma, Cinnamon Sling and Fluent in French Toast. It is set up like an ice cream shop and they even have toppings. The pudding also comes in the cutest reusable containers. You really should stop in if you are in New York City's SoHo area!
