I swear I may melt. It is that hot in Chicago, so this brand new cookbook I Scream Sandwich couldn’t have come at a better time!

I Scream Sandwich redefines the ice cream sandwich. It can easily be the star of a dinner party, a birthday party, a family picnic, or just a lazy summer afternoon. There is quite the variety of ice cream sandwich recipes to pick from. You can choose from the classic (chocolate cookie bars with vanilla ice cream) to the seasonal (blackberry buttermilk ice cream on crispy meringues) to the exotic (kaffir lime and lemongrass sorbet on five-spice cookies). If cookies are your forte, they also have recipe using brownies, cakes, bars, brioche, crusts, gelatos, and sorberts. As this lactose-intolerant ice cream lover was shocked to find, there are even some dairy free options in here. Seriously, there is pretty much a recipe for everyone in here!

If you are looking for a great dessert to end this summer, you have to get your hands on I Scream Sandwich!

Melt

I am always looking for ways to eat better for both my family and myself.  That is why I was willing to check out Melt.  Melt is made of virgin coconut oil, flax seed oil, palm fruit oil and canola oil and supports digestive wellness, optimal nutrition absorption and healthy weight. It’s sold in stores such as Whole Foods, Fred Meyer, King Soopers, Albertsons and Sprouts. Melt’s organic, soy-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free and certified Kosher.

Melt supports healthy weight when replacing other fats in your daily diet and the healthy goodness cooks, tops and bakes just like butter (with absolutely no hydrogenated oils).  I personally found that it tasted just like butter to me.  However, we took this camping (melt was perfect for camping) and was told that yes you can taste the coconut oil, but that it was even better than butter.  We’ve used this in as many ways as possible — I’ve added it to toast and bagels, I’ve used it for baking, and we used it camping to make eggs.  It passed all of our tests.  This is a product that we will be using for the foreseeable future!

Since you are taking the time to read about this great new product on my blog, I wanted to tell you about a great contest they are having right now.  You can win a $500 VISA gift card for a Mingle With Melt dinner party for 10 friends–a chic, healthy night in with friends and family! Whichever blog the winning reader comes from, that blogger wins too!  Sooo if you go here and enter, please make sure that you let them know that Lisa Cooking sent you!

If you are in need for healthy cooking oils or healthy gluten free butter or just a substitute for butter, definitely try out Melt!
