TWD: Oatmeal Breakfast Bread and Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream

Oh holy cow! Am I a slacker or what? Please bear with me, it's getting to the make-or-break part of summer... the part where I question whether I am truly cut out for motherhood. Or at least summer break.

Yea, yea, enough whining, you say. We're all in the same boat here, right? So let's get on with it... last week for Tuesdays with Dorie, Natalie of Oven Love selected Oatmeal Breakfast Bread.

The week before, Katrina of Baking and Boys picked Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream.

Both recipes were fantastic! Thanks so much to Natalie and Katrina for the excellent picks.

You want to hear what a knucklehead I am? I actually left the oatmeal out of the the Oatmeal Breakfast Bread. Derrrrrr! Totally spaced it out... as in, I didn't even measure it out and forget it on the counter this time... I totally missed it as a component of this recipe.

Somehow it still came out awesome... moist and spicy and totally addictive.

And the chocolate ice cream... so tasty! The caramel and mini M&M's made for a serious sugar rush.

OK, that's it for now. I'm going to try to get some pics posted next week of our vacation to Northern Ohio and (according to my kids) the most awesome amusement park EVER!

Please visit the awesome ladies' websites for the recipes, or find yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

I love the M&M's in front there hiding in that chocolate ice cream cave!
I do the same kind of things sometimes--leave out key ingredients to recipes. Glad the bread still worked for you.

Atleast you did a great job catching up. I would have completely skipped them. Both of those look delicious!

They both look wonderful! The bread I wish I had a slice of for breakfast right now and the ice cream just looks like a party in a bowl! I made the ice cream late as well, guys were gone and I don't like chocolate, so it might get posted this next week with the peach tart post, who least I made it, right? Love Cedar Point!! A big attraction for my roller coaster loving boys.
