Sunday, September 12th, 2010

When I was in my 20s, I lived in a sketchy party of town with 5 roommates.  We hit raves, DJ sets, and OSU campus bars until 3am.  Then the debauchery really began.  A load of us would head to a condo complex in a swanky part of town, scale the fence, and hit the pool and hot tub in only our skivvies.  Everyone always ended up back at our house for breakfast and I was the chef.  So today I decided to reminisce and sneak “Cornflake & Bourbon Ice Cream Sammies” into my favorite library.  Would I change anything about my 20s?  Not a chance!  Except maybe to have made these Sammies back then for breakfast.

Ginormous thanks to Phil Defalco for putting up with all my shenanigans. Reworked Vintage Naughty Librarian dress from Hunt & Gather.  Spanking Glasses?  Luigi Vera.

    Rachel, I will need to send you a long, long list of the Columbus haunts we hit up! Some were on campus, some were in German Village, Short North (my favorite area) Brewery District, even downtown to some abandoned warehouses for after parties. It was ridiculous. I’d like to have a sliver of that energy back…

  14. These look delicious! I went to Miami, but drove up to Cbus all the time for OSU games and parties in college. It’s such a fun campus!

    Mmmm…looks delicious.

    Yet another amazing recipe and stylish photo montage! I am amazed at your endless creativity.

    Now can you tell us how you cleverly snuck that food into the library? I wanna know your tricks so I can do the same : )

    Another great recipe and I love no-bake desserts. This one is so imaginative and now I’m thinking of other flavors for the kiddies. I’ll have to try strawberry ice cream with Froot Loops! We should have a cooking baking day together before the holidays, Jennifer.

    YUMMMMM! I can’t wait to try these out. I love all your recipes, and this is another one bound to be a classic. Your photos always add so much to the vintage sugarcube experience! I too liked the reminiscing of life in our 20s. I have similar stories but we didn’t have a breakfast chef like you!

    So, I guess you are talking OH SU and not OK SU! :) Sounds like you had a lot more fun in school than I did – was way too good for my own good. These Sammies would be incredible on a hot day – maybe we will get one of those before too long. Love what I can see of the dress too!! Once again, I have no idea where you get this stuff. You are one talented chick!

    If it ever warms up around here, we will have to start breaking into pools and enjoying some ice cream treats; however, at this age, I am definitely wearing a suit! Looks great – you have given me way too many delicious things to try.

    I have neither the courage nor nimbleness to scale fences. Love the books, and how your site is so not-the typical food site. So much more edgy!

    Jenny, I applaud you for mixing both Post with de Sade (as in, “May I please have some S-M, thank you very much?”) and bourbon with cornflakes – not to mention last week’s spinach with oranges in bread. I never know what to expect on your site…and that is exceptional in the blogosphere.

    Thanks,

  60. These seriously look amazing! You brought back some great memories talking about being at the OSU bars until 3 am…we never snuck into the pool and hot tubs though, although it sounds like something my friends and I would have done! ;) Ahh..good times! Love your blog!
