Hi, I'm Rachel.

A few years ago I could barely boil water.

True story.

Determined to be a kick ass wife, I developed a love for football and learned to cook in my tiny Jersey City kitchen. I spend my days working in Manhattan, my nights and weekends chasing after a rambunctious toddler, and the hours in between cooking with my husband and feeding my TV habit...oh, and I blog about it all!

Biscoff Sundae

I feel like I was just complaining about Tuesday and somehow it's now already Thursday!

(Right? It is, in fact, Thursday today?)

Last night Shaun had basketball and so I spent the evening hanging on the couch catching up on my shows --->the ones Shaun refuses to watch with me (but then asks me for the recap of them, so I secretly think he does in fact want to watch!). Topping my list? Kourtney & Kim Take New York!

I'm not really into reality TV for the most part, but I do love me some Kardashians, Bethenny and of course, Jersey Shore. During this season of Kardashians, I've come to the realization that Scott is my favorite of the bunch. I know this is a bold statement. And I was there for the drunken mirror punching, Khloe-hating, the whole shebang. But now, I think he is funny, charming, and sort of puppy doggish in how he loves Kourtney so much and she can seemingly take him or leave him.

Am I wrong to like him this much? Let the Kardashian weigh-in begin!

Moving on.

You know that I've been doing Weight Watchers, and for me, the most difficult part of a maintaining a healthy lifestyle is that I really like to have dessert at night. It doesn't have to be anything big or fancy, but I do love just a little sweetness. With Weight Watchers in mind, I've been trying to get creative with my dessert to keep it low points but satisfying. Enter the Biscoff sundae.

If you haven't tried biscoff spread yet, it's like gingerbread and shortbread got married, had a baby, and it turned into a spread. It's yummy.

This little number takes about 2 minutes to whip up and comes to 4 Points+. Not to shabby considering this is one decadent and filling sundae! It's perfect for the evenings when you have a light dinner with a few Points+ to spare!

Biscoff Sundae

4 WW Points +

1/2 C light or sugar-free vanilla bean ice cream (I used Turkey Hill Light)

1 Tbsp biscoff spread

2 Tbsp whipped cream (aerosol or Cool Whip)

In a small, bowl, melt the biscoff spread in the microwave, about 20 seconds.

Meanwhile, scoop ice cream into a bowl. Drizzle with melted biscoff.

Top with whipped cream or fat free Cool Whip.

The biscoff hardens around the ice cream like a Magic Shell and adds such a delicious flavor. It's such a nice change up from chocolate syrup --->though I think light or sugar-free chocolate syrup would be A-mazing here too! And less Points+.

So there you have it. My favorite little dessert of late. It feels so fancy, but is really incredibly simple and worth every Point!

Questions of the Day:

Who is your favorite Kardashian (if you watch the show)?

What is your favorite ice cream topping? As long as I have whipped cream, I'm all good!

ha, the Kardashians are always DVRd for me to watch when my husband isn't around, too - they irk the heck out of him! scott has really grown on me, too, since he stopped being a belligerent fool. i really like him + kourtney. my least favorite by far is Kris Humphries - he's just not a very likable dude. unrelated: that biscoff sundae looks divine!

I think Kris kind of sucks, however, I will miss him next season because he brings a whole new funny element to the show! AND I love the dynamic with him + Scott.

That sundae looks amazing, I just might have to pick up some of that cookie spread! I'll see if TJ's has their version, but I heard they were out?! The horror!
I too have liked Scott this season...I used to despise him, but he's growing on me. (And growing up it seems!)

I was literally talking to my friend last night about how much I like Scott this season. I love that him and Kris(Jenner) have a great relationship now. I never thought I'd say that I like him. He was such a tool last season!

That sundae looks awesome. I know whats for dessert tonight!

BISCOFF IS SO GOOD. I still have a jar at home and I do have a craving for some ice cream. what a great.idea. i wish i could just that off the screen right now :)

January 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJulie @ Table for Two

I have to agree..Scott has totally grown on me! I love that you mentioned Magic Shell! I love that stuff!

January 26, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteralex

My uncle is visiting family in NJ, im pretty sure im going to ask him to try and bring me some Biscoff back,its looks so yummy! Im so sure that i love everything sweet,or in some cases, anything edible!

It's funny how some folks just have to have dessert or the meal doesn't seem complete. My dad is like that. He doesn't care what it is and typically opts for fruit with a little ice cream, but he has to have his sweet.

My favorite topping for icecream is either warmed crushed pineapple or melted peanut butter - depending on my mood.

OMG that looks amazing! I wish I had that right now in my apartment!

January 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly

So funny, Scott has become one of my favorites too. He has changed so much, I think it's great. I love Kourtney and Khloe, but Kim is really, really getting on my nerves. She seems so materialistic and self centered. That show is such a guilty pleasure! That sundae looks great! There's been so much hype over Biscoff spread, I've got to try it!

January 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLauren @ Vaguely Vegan

omg i have never heard of biscoff...

January 29, 2012 | Unregistered Commentertia

Ohemgee! I love biscoff spread! The cookies are great too! We make the spread into a warm drink, sorta like nutella hot chocolate. I bet it tastes great on ice cream too!

January 30, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterbrandi
