    The peach and mint chocolate cookies look delicious. I would have never thought to combine the two into this clever little dessert.

      Not Oscar material, but I LOVED Mamma Mia! Worst movie of 2008?: “The curious case of Benjamin Button”! It pretends to be great, pretending to be Forrest Gump, but fails miserably! And Brad Pitt pretends to “act” just by looking stoned faced and bored. It’s just a loooong booooring mess!

      I guess that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder – I don't find this bread pudding homely at all. I think that it is lovely and perfect for the holiday weekend. You can't go wrong with fresh strawberries and ice cream!
