tuesday things I howsweeteats.com

1. I call this: thee snack.

2. It was 55 degrees this morning, which I decided called for a cup of HOT coffee, my first in months. With whipped cream obviously. Not going to sugar coat it either: I love weather like this.

3. How does this toblerone ice cream cake exist? And more importantly, why isn’t it in my freezer?

4. I finally opened some of those restoration hardware catalogs that were delivered to my house in brick form. They are now ruining my life. Who has a 21K nursery? That’s what I want to know.

5. I’ve eaten like three pounds of blueberries in two days. I feel like I’m going to turn into Violet Beauregarde.

6. As if my crush on Robin Wright wasn’t already huge enough. This happened.

7. Whaaaaaat is going to happen on True Blood? Or wait, does it really matter as long as Eric lives? Also, some of those scenes in the The Leftovers force me to put my hands over my face. Like the first scene. That was utterly awful. I would prefer a Justin-Theroux-in-uniform-only show please. Surprise surprise. I didn’t get to watch Masters of Sex yet this week. I’m kind of buried in boxes. BUT I have of course found time to watch reruns of the West Wing on my laptop. And did you see the trailer for the Walking Dead? AHHH! Cannot wait. As well as with Boardwalk Empire. Have I been watching anything else lately?? No no, not really. I can’t wait for fall TV. But I did tell Eddie that I was concerned about traveling soon and missing my favorite shows. I am such a loser.

8. Sadly this sums up many of the text messages between myself and those close to me. I have learned to stop googling any and all symptoms about, well, everything.

9. If you have an extra 40 minutes, you can hang out with me on the the lively show. I can’t listen because I am embarrassed of myself. palm -> face.

10. All I want to do in life is make legit homemade rainbow sherbet. It is seemingly impossible. I MIGHT have it for you next week. Just wait.

11. One more thing!! You have three more days to enter to win a signed copy of my cookbook – AND get a signed book plate if you preorder. Smooches.

    That’s my favorite snack! Sometimes when I feel guilty i stick a small apple slice underneath so i can call it “healthy.”

    Lately I’ve been just sticking my spoon into peanut butter and then straight into nutella, though, because chocolate chips sometimes fall off and we can’t have that, right? Also, then i get to eat any peanut butter that got leftover in the nutella jar from my dipping. . . No shame. Well, some shame.

    (Even my breakfast lately has been a little bit of cereal with banana, peanut butter, nutella, and vanilla soy or almond milk. Oh g-d.)

    You were SO hilarious on the podcast! It’s so fun to hear what your voice sounds like, and all your advice was so helpful! Love your links (as always!), and I’ve eaten at least a few pounds of blueberries in the last few days too… whoops!

    meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles — July 29, 2014 @ 3:51 pm

    1. That is definitely the best snack ever and I eat it every day 2. I absolutely eat that many blueberries as well and absolutely used the Violet reference on my blog a few weeks ago! We totally think alike.

    How f’ing great was that Robin Wright – Jimmy Fallon thing? My husband and I almost woke the baby watching that the other night. You know ol’ girl gets DOWN in her kitchen dancing.

    Loved hearing you on the podcast, seriously – you sounded exactly how I thought you would about everything. Best to you – as always – in everything! xo

    My mother taught me that snack, I mean “thee snack” years ago. PB from the jar dunked in choc chips is a family classic for us! Haha. :)

    Olga Giffors — July 29, 2014 @ 5:39 pm

    Ahhhh, I just listened to the podcast! You are truly such an inspiration and it makes me want to quit my day job and go back to cooking full time. I can’t wait to buy your cookbook and can’t wait to hear (read?) all about your little baby muffin that’s due soon. I just had my first baby (boy!) 4 months ago. Sooo amazing and soooo damn hard. And tiring.

    Sarah @ the gold lining girl — July 29, 2014 @ 6:20 pm

    P.S. I just finished listening to the podcast and my at-home workout today blew by listening to it!! You’re a riot. It was great. Can’t wait for your cookbook to arrive at my door!!

    Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat — July 29, 2014 @ 6:24 pm

    Currently listening to your interview and it’s GREAT! You are a natural and are going to totally rock the launch of your book! As for that 55 degrees, it was cold here today too. Unfortunately I’m not loving it quite as much as you but a coffee (perhaps with a side of toblerone cake) sounds rather divine right now!

    Leslie — July 29, 2014 @ 6:30 pm

    Haha, this cracks me up. Most important topic, why isn’t that cake in my freezer too?! I love strawberries that much, man once i start I can’t stop! They’re so delish.

    Emily @ Life on Food — July 29, 2014 @ 6:40 pm

    My husband was none to happy when I got the 20 pounds worth of restoration hardware catalogs. I kind of loved it. Then didn’t know what to do with them all. So pretty! So expensive!

    Holly (2 Kids and Tired) — July 29, 2014 @ 8:01 pm

    Peanut butter on a spoon dipped in chocolate chips? I have that as a snack on a regular basis. One of the best!

    Firstly, thank you for the ice cream cake love! Secondly, I have been in love with Robin Wright since Princess Bride days – she’s the greatest. And thirdly, I loved your lively show interview! Girl, you’re an inspiration.

    Erica @ thecrumbycupcake — July 29, 2014 @ 9:25 pm

    That Toblerone cake is ridic, no? I just want to know why Toblerone doesn’t have their own ice cream line, now. Seems like a good investment idea….

    And you sound so sweet on the podcast!!! <3 the advice and you! :)

    Rebecca @ Hello Creative Blog — July 29, 2014 @ 9:53 pm

    Those Restoration Hardware “books”. Seriously. They’re still in a stack on my coffee table because I just can’t. Not yet. Maybe I’ll be ready someday to tackle that.

    Sarah — July 30, 2014 @ 9:02 am

    I loved listening to you on the Lively Show! You are a long time favorite of mine and it’s so cool/crazy/weird in the best way to hear your voice! Has anyone (from other parts of the US of course) told you that you have an East Coast accent? Too cute!

    Sam — July 30, 2014 @ 9:31 am

    That first scene in The Leftovers was so horrible, one of the worst scenes I have ever seen. I had to turn away.
