Real Simple

I am loving my subscription to Real Simple magazine. And I especially like the August 2010 issue and the Three-Ingredient Recipes.

We took some time for a vacation, and headed to the lake for the week. So, we are trying seven of the  recipes.

I can tell you that the Peanut Ice Cream Sandwiches on page 190 are wonderful!  The three ingredients are:

Peanut butter cookies (I made mine 3")
Vanilla ice cream (1/2 pint)
Roasted peanuts chopped (1/4 cup)

These ice cream sandwiches are easy to eat while relaxing on the porch. I made some iced coffee to go along with our treats.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. This looks like a wonderful treat especially with the iced coffee, perfect for a hot summer day.

    I spy a new courtly check tray :)

  2. Looks good and I love DD coffee. Can't wait for another coupon , 4 lbs for 20.00!

  3. Gosh those ice cream sandwiches look that MC tray!

  4. I love Real Simple too, Debbie. What a deliciously simple recipe for ice cream pies. I haven't made peanut butter cookies in ages. This looks like a perfect excuse to made some ;)

  5. Love Real Simple and what better than perfection with three ingredients? Looks like a perfectly delicious treat!

  6. I'm enjoying my subscription too. So many great ideas. Lots for dogeared pages! If I got the August issue I've miss place it! LOL Not a surprise :-) Those sandwiches look right up my alley. I bet they'd be great with my MILs Peanutbutter oatmeal cookies.


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
