happiness and chocolate chips

Yesterday I was in an inexplicable bad mood.  Maybe it was the weather – the forecast was warm and sunny, but the day turned gloomy and gray.  I was thinking about what would make me feel better and I realized – a homemade ice cream sandwich.  I am partial to the Immaculate Baking Co.’s break-and-bake chocolate chip cookies with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream.  I challenge you to stay in a bad mood after you eat one of these.


Button Soup On the Town: Blanco Bowling Club Cafe

I’m interrupting my regularly scheduled recipes to tell you about the best pie I’ve had recently. Blanco Bowling Club Cafe, folks. If you find yourself in Hill Country looking for a place to eat, check this place out. Yes, it’s actually in the back room of an old-school bowling club. It’s on 4th street in Blanco, TX. The cheeseburgers were solid, but the real winner of the night was the pie. Sadly, they were out of chocolate and coconut cream, but we had blueberry and lemon meringue.

As you can see, we weren’t too disappointed.
