Here’s another episode of my TV Dinner series. This one is dedicated to one of my ultimate feel-good shows The Mindy Project. It’s snarky, it’s sparkly and super fabulous. I’m a devoted fan of Mindy Kaling (read her book if you haven’t already) and the other actors in the cast, especially Chris Messina and Ike Barinholtz make the show what it is.
I love that Mindy is a strong woman who’s not afraid of coming across as aggressive or superficial or incredibly smart. She’s also a woman who’s not shy about eating.
Let’s face it, Father’s Day is often the forgotten parents’ appreciation holiday. Mother’s Day always steals its thunder with its flowers and chocolates and breakfast-in-beds. By the time Father’s Day rolls around, people have already Instagrammed their cutest picture with Mom and are much too busy in summer mode to fuss over what to get Dad. Another tie? A hammer to replace the one he lost or maybe some grilling utensils? You know… MANLY things!
But you know what, men like chocolate too. So here’s a dessert that I’m pretty sure will knock your dad’s socks off (those socks you got him because you couldn’t think of what else to buy). These grown up chocolate chip cookie sandwiches are sprinkled with smoked sea salt and filled with a whiskey frosting. To be honest men, women, and children (over the age of 21) can all enjoy this delicious treat! Cause GAH dad, why does it always have to be about you??
