If you feel like your life is lacking something…it is probably a giant ice cube tray.

I bought my giant ice cube tray at Home Goods and it is working wonders in my life by making ice cubes so big that they don’t fit in some of my glasses.  Are these ice cubes more fun than regular sized ice cubes?

YES THEY ARE.

As much as I <3 giant ice cubes, chocolate milk is still higher on my list of things I love.  That list also includes puppies, hamburgers when I’m REALLY craving a hamburger (so satisfying) and planning our first vacation for me and Andrew since our honeymoon.

So chocolate milk.

While you don’t HAVE to add anything to chocolate milk to make it SOO GOOD, sometimes it’s nice to mocha your life a bit.

coffee

  1. Giant ice cubes and cute straws can make plain water taste better. But mocha?! Crazy good! :)

  2. All I could think when I was reading this is this, blended, would be AMAZING. Like the most incredible frapp you’ve ever had!!

  3. Giant Ice cube trays! I have never seen such a thing. Do you have to have extra wide glasses to make them fit?

  4. Can you explain the difference between vanilla beans, vanilla bean paste, and vanilla extract? What situations would you use each and is there a difference in amounts (do you put the same amount of vanilla extract as you would paste?)? I’ve seen vanilla beans or paste in recipes a lot lately and have been wondering about it!

    • Vanilla bean paste is just vanilla beans + sugar + vanilla extract. It gives the look of vanilla beans in your ice cream/lighter foods…so it’s a nice touch:) I use vanilla bean paste and vanilla extract in equal amounts in recipes!

  5. I’m with nora .. I think I’m going to have to blend!

  6. I have GOT to get one of those giant ice cube trays!

  7. HomeGoods has all the goods..hence the name I suppose. :)
