Scream for Ice Cream


2016 07 01 archive
Okay, I hear all your cries about the weather, but once your city exceeds 115 degrees Fahrenheit, you can start complaining. For my international readers, that would be 46 degrees Celsius. Now that I have the right to complain, I will get started on this post. 

I made these bad boys today because it was super hot! Just imagine yourself opening an over after baking, and that’s exactly what Las Vegas weather is like. Would I trade this weather for any others? Probably not. ‘Wait, WAHHHH?!’ you might ask. Let me explain. 

Last week, I was in Los Angeles, and I’ve forgotten how disgustingly hot it was there. It’s not scorching hot, but because of the humidity, you’d want to jump in the shower every two seconds. When I got home in Las Vegas, I truly appreciated the weather because it’s dry. It’s so hot here that Las Vegans don’t have time to sweat. Do I like the heat? Hell to the no, but it gives me the reason to make these bad boys! 

What you’ll need: 
Coconut thin cookies (found at Trader Joe’s)
Your favorite ice cream (used for this blog: rocky road)

Directions: Place three tablespoons of ice cream in between the cookies. Gently press them together, and roll the ice cream edges! Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?! 

What’s your summertime treat?

I’ve had Fantastic Donuts and Croissants in my bookmarks for a long time now, and I had the pleasure of trying them out this weekend! The thing that caught my attention: SUPER CUTE DONUTS! I mean, who can resist such a thing? I know I couldn’t! Now, my final verdict:



Food: 3/5

Ambiance: 2/5

Service: 1/5



I know, they’re pretty low scores! The disappointing part about this visit was that the guy who helped us out looked so aggravated when he was serving us. Alongside the bad service, ordering was only possible outside the premises’ window after 11PM. It was shady af!

Dinner at Shake Shack

Shake Shack is becoming one of those American staples that you have to experience when you’re in the country. It started in New York in 2004, and it quickly expanded with franchises popping up in the West Coast. Las Vegas is one of the lucky cities to open up in the area as tourists such as Los Angelenos make it priority to stop by. 

It was one of those legendary restaurantants that went viral by word of mouth. Perhaps it’s from those homesick East Coast peeps that wished Shake Shack was around. Maybe it’s some people from the West Coast that had to spread the news. Let’s just say it’s both and all the ‘maybes’ in between. 

While my loyalty stands strong to In-N-Out, I can see why people would yearn for such food. Just look at the burger aesthetically; who wouldn’t want to eat such a thing? All the ingredients tastes fresh with the meat as juicy as can be. My friends were raving about the sauce’s consistency and how it complimented it’s overall presentation. I don’t quite agree, but the majority has spoken; the sauce is delicious! 

Let’s not start with the fries! It was just heaven on Earth for me. If someone were to suggest it, I would opt for the cheese fries without hesitation. It’s crispy on the outside and soft inside. I’ve never tasted such a perfection. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating but the fries are up there. 

So have you tried Shake Shack before? If so, what did you think about it?

I think I left my heart in Virginia because I continue to think about it even though two months has passed since my last visit. From the interlocking foliage to the beautiful small towns are just what a city girl needs to consider a relocation! While Los Angeles and Las Vegas has been my home for years, there’s nothing like the country to truly appreciate nature. I mean every commute was like a scenic route to anywhere! Vast fields of greeneries with a backdrop of the mountains was absolutely breathtaking. They also had a generous share of the woods as many miles of long drives where trees from left to right.

My aunt took me to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park on my first day there. Being so close to Washington D.C., it’s neighboring states were rich in history. Who knew?! Harpers Ferry was located in West Virginia. It’s a small town with only a population of 286 as of 2010. While the town looks serene now, it had its brutal share of the American Civil War

I couldn’t help but imagine a congestion of people running from every direction fighting to build a stable country. It’s a town filled with a scale of tragedy, legacy, accomplishments and trial by fire. At the end of the day, it continues to represent the bloody tribulations of the American history. 

I only have two words for Harpers Ferry: haunting and awe-inspiring.
