I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Oreo Ice Cream Cake (Nancy Giles)

I'm not a big fan of cake, so this is what I make myself for my birthdays. Mmmmm. Happy Birthday to me!

2 c (2 rows) crushed Oreos (30 cookies)

1/3 c granulated sugar

½ c butter

½ gallon cookies ‘n cream ice cream

Hershey’s chocolate syrup

½ - 1 c crushed Oreos for topping (12)

Crush cookies (use a food processor). Combine with sugar and butter. Press into bottom of 9” x 13” pan. Freeze until firm. Set ice cream out to soften, not melt. When soft, spread evenly over firm crust. Drizzle chocolate syrup over ice cream and top with more crushed Oreos, if desired. Cover w/plastic wrap (not the Pyrex lid; it takes longer to freeze with the lid) and place in freezer to harden. Right before serving, drizzle again with chocolate syrup.

  1. Hmm, I have another recipe - a jello/pudding recipe - that takes longer to set up and I cover it with the Pyrex lid. I wonder if it would set up faster with plastic wrap. Thanks for the tip. This looks so good. I need to try this soon!
