Hello. Welcome to this week’s round of Friday Favorites! And welcome to “the new” Simply Sweet Home! I’ve been planning a redesign of the site for some time now, and last weekend I finally found an extra few minutes in my schedule to install all the new graphics. Hope you guys like the new look!
I’ve been featuring a lot of summer recipes lately, especially frozen and fruity items, so this week I decided to go in a slightly different direction with one of my favorite thing: Chocolate!
Don’t you just love ice cream sandwiches? They are one of my favorite frozen treat of all time! Today we have a recipe for homemade Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches. It comes to us from our friends at Nielsen-Massey. If you’re a baking enthusiast, you should definitely have some of their products in your pantry. They have a line of vanilla products, including beans, paste, and pure vanilla extract, as well as other popular extracts like almond, orange, lemon, and peppermint.

The summer season is known as a time for vacations and fun in the sun, but it is also the season for home improvement and a little DIY fun. Today I’m going to give you a quick run down on some of the things I’m working on this summer, and I’ll tell you about how I refuel with Dr Pepper and Snickers.
When you’re doing any kind of work or activities outside, a Snickers and Dr Pepper really hit the spot. Dr Pepper 20 oz bottles and SNICKERS 2-to-Go Bars are not only the perfect portion size for a quick snack, but they are also conveniently located near the check out line at your local Walmart. I recently shopped at Walmart and picked up a few for myself: [Read more...]

What could be better than a slice of Key Lime Pie in the summer? How about Key Lime Pie on stick? Today our friends at 2CookinMamas.com are showing us how to make this yummy creation. Hope you enjoy!
Hi! I’m Linda and I blog with my daughter Christina on 2CookinMamas.com. We love to cook, eat and repeat and often do so with a mama’s cocktail in hand! But…we lead a double life, in the kitchen that is. I enjoy making yummy desserts and gourmet meals while Christina enjoys gluten-free cooking. We both work outside the kitchen too so all our dishes are created to be quick and easy for Moms-on-the-go. Christina is a certified nutritionist & DDP Yoga instructor and I’m a VP of Marketing & Sales. We recently published our very first cookbook for the expecting Mom: The Pregnancy Cookbook, which has over 60 delicious, healthy, quick & easy recipes as well as nutrition tips for Mom and baby. We’d love for you to stop on by and grab a recipe or just say hi! And if you try one of our recipes please let us know by leaving a comment and sharing the love!
Jerri was nice enough to extend an invitation to us to be guest bloggers on her “Summer Themed” recipe series. We are thrilled and we can’t think of a better blog to be associated with. Thanks Jerri and now on to the recipe.
Summer always brings to mind the Florida Keys. Living in South Florida, we are only about 2 hours away from the northernmost key, Key Largo, and about 4 hours from Key West, so it is only a hop, skip and a jump to get away for the weekend. And the Keys are so laid back, I mean really laid back, so much so that you feel like you are a world away from the mainland.
One of our favorite desserts that seems to only be offered in the Keys is Key Lime Pie on a Stick. What is that you say? Well, it is a cold and refreshing piece of tart key lime pie, graham cracker crust and all, coated in sweet chocolate, and stuck on a stick for easy eating. Our version is smaller and rectangular instead of pie shape but just as mouth wateringly delicious as the original. Great for kids and adults alike on these hot summer days. Hope you enjoy!

Nothing says summer quite like ice cream. As a kid we used to make homemade ice cream every couple weeks from Memorial Day and Labor Day, but the process of filling and cranking the ice cream maker was arduous. While I would love to continue the homemade ice cream tradition with my own kids, cranking the machine for 4 hours is just not practical. Instead, we’ve found a much simpler way to create delicious flavored ice cream while still going about our summer activities. I’ll usually whip up the concoction just before we head out to the park or the pool, so that by the time we get home we can relax on the porch and indulge.
This recipe is super easy and leaves much room for variation. My favorite ice cream flavor we’ve tried is by far the all-American apple pie. We’ve tried other flavorings and all have been great (including some adventures with chocolate and peanut butter) but apple pie stands out as the crowd favorite in my home.

If you’ve ever uttered the phrase, “Two for me, none for you,” then today’s post is definitely for you. TWIX® Bites are a delicious, bite-sized version of the TWIX candy bar. They come in a nice little pouch, making them a convenient snack for you to take along with you on car trips and outings. TWIX Bites also happen to make a fabulous ingredient for your desserts.. I recently purchased TWIX Bites, along with a bag of Milky Way Bites, and I used them to make a couple of cool treats, perfect for any hot summer day!
