Homemade Ice Cream Mixed with Gourmet Brownies!

I received an ice cream maker a few years ago as a gift and finally decided to make some home made ice cream! With temperatures reaching 118 degrees in Phoenix this weekend, I thought a cool treat would be just the ticket. Since I'd never made ice cream before, I thought I'd try vanilla. It turned out to be my boyfriend who came up with the truly inspired idea. He said I should make vanilla with bites of Fairytale Gourmet Brownies throughout! The idea was too tempting not to try!
 
I cut two Fairytale Peanut Butter Brownies into pieces and added them to the ice cream machine when the ice cream was nearly ready. The result was delicious! I served my boyfriend his with a Fairytale Peanut Butter Cookie. He would not stop raving about the dessert! I am excited to serve this amazing treat to others and may even bring it to my Fourth of July Barbecue!

National Dairy Month: Dip Gourmet Cookies in milk

Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? According to the International Dairy Foods Association, it started out as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk. It now celebrates the contributions the dairy industry has made to the world. Dairy products like milk contain essential nutrients that help manage weight and reduce risk of high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and certain cancers. www.idfa.org
 
I was never a big milk drinker, but there is one sure way to get me to drink more milk, pairing it with a gourmet cookie from Fairytale Brownies.

Order Brownies on your Smart Phone!

Soon, ordering brownies on your smart phone will be just a few clicks away! As the web designer here at Fairytale Brownies, it's been on my 'wish list' for a while to expand the reach of our yummy brownies to the mobile space. So finally this year (2013), Fairytale Brownies has decided to develop a mobile optimized version of brownies.com. You'll be able to browse our gift line and easily place an order for a brownie delivery right to your front door! Or, send brownies gifts to your friends and loved ones, but that goes without saying ;)  With so many people plugged in, it was a no-brainer that we needed to expand our reach to mobile.

129.4 million people own smartphones as of January 2013, with Apple having the majority of the market with 37%. Google holds 52% of the smart phone operating system market while Apple is behind at 37%. Google/Andriod operating systems are in Samsung, HTC, Motorola and LG phones, so combined this equates to more market share than Apple (source):

Brownie Delivery for Mother's Day

It's time to say thank you to those all important women in our lives, mothers! I know my mom is looking forward to her brownie delivery from Fairytale Brownies, but Mother's Day is not only about one's own mother but the other great mothers in our lives.

Happy Anniversary -- Celebrate with Brownie Gifts

Happy Anniversary Brownie GiftsLast week, my husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary; it's hard to believe it's been 5-years already. Seems like yesterday we were exchanging our vows and getting ready to start life as a married couple. Since we JUST bought a house last month, and we're still in the midst of unpacking, we decided to play our anniversary low key this year. Exchange small gifts, and the traditional celebration dinner.

I didn't hold up my end of the bargain on the small gift thing. My 'small' gift entailed of going to the nursery and buying him a new Citrus tree for the yard as well as a Rosemary plant for the deck. I also sent a Happy Anniversary Fairytale Brownies gift (Happy Anniversary Sprite Dozen) to his work. He is a choco-holic like myself, so he looks forward to the occasional brownie gift in the mail (I've cut down on bringing brownies home!). But we allow ourselves the occasional indulgence of gourmet treats when it's a special occasion.

Thank Wedding Guests With Personalized Photo Gifts

Warmer weather is here, and that means it's wedding season again. The most popular months to get married are June through October, so many brides are preparing for their big day. There is so much to plan, from the dress to details like thank you gifts and wedding favors. I'm at the age where many of my friends are getting married, so I've attended plenty of weddings. I find the weddings I enjoy most are those that focus on family and friends. Small touches like thanking those who've been there for your big day have always been a tradition, but the gifts that stand out to me most are  personalized gifts.

At Fairytale Brownies, we have the perfect way for couples to thank their loved ones in a personal way, with photo gifts. Your photo will be printed directly onto our gift packaging with durable, high-quality inks for a sentimental gift your guests can treasure for years to come.

Celebrate National Pecan Day with Pecan Brownies, Cookies and Bars!

April 14th is National Pecan Day! Pecans are one of my favorite nuts and are popular for their buttery flavor and soft crunch. When I learned there was a National Day recognizing pecans I decided to learn some more about this delicious nut.

Pecans have a rich history in the United States. It's the only major nut tree that grows naturally in North America. The word pecan is of Native American origin that was used to describe "all nuts requiring a stone to crack.” It's history can be traced back to 16th century where both Washington and Jefferson planted pecan trees. New Orleans became the hub for distributing pecans to other parts of the United States and the rest of the world. Source: ilovepecans.org/history.html.

There are many ways to enjoy pecans, but my favorite is in desserts. Forget the pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving and pass me the pecan! Here at Fairytale Brownies we have three delicious pecan treats. Our pecan brownie, carmel pecan cookie, and  pecan blondie
