Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 T. mustard
1 T. honey
1 t. apple cider vinegar
2 green onions, chopped
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Mix mayonnaise, mustard, honey, vinegar and onions. Grill chicken breasts and brush with mixture.

My variation:
I used low-fat mayonnaise and it tasted fine. I also left out the green onions cause I don't like them. Some of the mixture kept falling of the chicken and making a mess on the grill... so next time we make this, I'm going to grill the chicken a little bit then brush on the mixture so it sticks better. Still, this was very, very tasty -- and very simple. I served it with brown rice and some veggies. It also tastes good warmed up, as leftovers.

Cookie dough ice cream

OK, this probably doesn't actually count as a recipe. Lately we've been addicted to cookie dough ice cream (especially the new Frosty's with cookie dough from Wendy's), but the budget doesn't allow for the frequent consumption we've been craving. The solution ... we make our own.

We tried just mixing actual cookie dough into ice cream, but the secret we've found is baking the cookies for half the time you're supposed to. This melts the chocolate chips into a deliciously gooey state and leaves you with ideal doughy cookies to break into pieces and mix into your ice cream.

We're whipping up new kinds of cookie dough every few days for this indulgence. Yummy.
