Here's a blog about the log roll... we always used real whipping cream on it instead of Cool Whip. We never refrigerated the layered wafers before putting the whipping cream topping on... just made it in one sitting then let it sit until the wafers absorbed the whipping cream, probably at least 6 hours. We always used wax paper to wrap it... make the log roll right on the waxed paper on a platter then wrap it up. The picture where it says to frost the wafers shows the wafers underneath but we always brought the whipping cream right to the plate to prevent it from rolling from side to side. Cut it on a 45-degree angle from the length of the roll to get the zebra design. One blog suggested adding mint extract to the whipping cream, which I have never tried but think is an awesome idea! One suggestion is to make sure the wafers aren't all broken... sometimes the packages are pretty beat up when you buy them. http://chowtimes.com...ate-wafers-log/
Here's the Mud Recipe:
- make a graham wafer crumb crust to fit a 9 x 13 pan. Be sure to bake it and allow it to cool before topping it.
- Mix one package (250 g) of softened cream cheese, 1 cup of icing sugar, and 1 cup of Cool Whip. Spread on the graham crust.
- Mix 2 regular packages of instant chocolate pudding and 3 cups of milk (the package sizes would be the ones that use 2 cups of milk). Spread on the cream cheese layer.
- Put the rest of the Cool Whip on top of the pudding layer. Let the whole thing cool for a day or so... you can make this a few days in advance if you wish. Cut into sections and serve!

1 Graham cracker crust
1 box of berry jello (I prefer Raspberry)
1 can of evaporated milk
Mix the package of jello in a bowl with 1 cup of boiling water, and instead of adding the other 1 cup of cold water, you'll add 1 cup of evap milk. After you stir well, pour the jello mixture into the pie crust, and let set in the fridge approx 3hours.
ps. It's best eaten within the 1st few days, any longer than that you'll find you have a weird soggy crust underneath the pie

Yummy cookies count as desert, right? These maple bacon glazed and chocolate chunk cookies are always a crowd pleaser. They are also a surprising combination - sweet, salty, bacony and chocolate. I gave them to my midwifes as part of a thank you gift and they loved them.

I found this on Facebook (a group called "Easy Recipies, Your Guide to Simple Recipies."
I have not tried this, but it looks interesting and is probably very bad for you.
ICE CREAM BREAD (Two ingredients! No, not a joke)
(Perfect for making with the kids and infinite varieties)
Makes One 8 x 4 loaf
2 Cups Ice Cream, any flavour, softened
1 1/2 cups Self-Rising Flour
Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
Spray and flour a 8 x 4 loaf pan, or line it with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl mix the ice cream and flour together until just combined.
Scoop into the loaf and smooth out.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the loaf comes out with a few crumbs stuck to it.
Remove from the pan and allow to cool.
For best results..use full fat ice-cream!
The picture is an example of butter-pecan ice cream - I like the nuts being distributed in the bread mixture, however you can use any ice cream flavour you prefer.
Always a fun experiment, and you cant get simpler than this.
For those that are scratching their heads wondering how this could work - lets consider that most ice cream is made of eggs and fat/dairy. Toss in some self-rising flour and you have some basic ingredients for a bake-capable product. Just choose the flavouring of ice cream that seems promising and have a fun weekend of experimentation.
Oh, one more thing - others asked about the self-rising flour (or if they didnt have it, could they simply use regular flour).
You must - MUST have a rising agent in the flour. Self-rising flour is an easy solution (and commonly available).
However, if you dont have self-rising flour accessible, you can make it very simply:
For every cup of flour add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt (sift together). There you go, now you have self-rising flour.

Cream cheese pastry recipe. This crust goes well with blueberries and I enjoy it best when topped with vanilla ice cream!

stole ambushed my stork? So many failed cycles with nothing to show but bills, receipts, and empty bottles of medications/herbs/supplements. See my profile for details...
UPDATE: I'm counting the days and hours waiting for this miracle to unfold. Christina Perri's A Thousand Years pretty much sums up my experience.
