Shopping Finds: Amy's 3 Favorite Things Of The Week (5/14)


I have not been paid to recommend any of these products. Here are three things I'm loving this week! Let's get started...

1: MADEWELL BANDANA

Whether you tie it around your neck, wear it in your hair, go for a bandana bun or choose an updated Cinderella style- I love a good bandana. It's an easy, versatile accessory. Madewell has some great designs for $12.50 right now on Zappos.

Need some inspiration on how to wear it, check out this link.

2: Peanut Buster Parfait Dessert

I made this for Mother's Day and it crushed. Turns out, McKaila's family had the same dessert :)

It's easy, you can make it ahead of time and it keeps in the freezer. My one tip- Make sure everything is cooled/frozen before you assemble. Otherwise, even though it'll still taste good, it won't have the defined layers.

(Side note. If you have people with dietary restrictions, you can accommodate. I used gluten free Oreos and Breyer's lactose free ice cream.)

Ingredients:

1 small package oreos

1/2 cup melted butter

1/2 gallon ice cream, slightly softened

An additional 6 tbsp of butter

1 small can evaporated milk + regular milk to make 10oz of liquid

1 cup powdered sugar

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Crush Oreos and mix with 1/2 cup melted butter. Press into 9x13 pan and freeze.
  2. Top with ice cream. (slightly softened so it spreads easily)
  3. Top with Spanish peanuts. Freeze again.
  4. In a saucepan, melt butter, milk, powdered sugar and chocolate chips. Simmer for 8 minutes while stirring. Let cool completely.
  5. Spread chocolate mixture on top. Freeze.

3: Outdoor Rug From World Market
