Since you guys always read my thoughts (about baking, cooking, motherhood, photography) and are very supportive and always respond, I decided to turn the tables today. I would love to hear from YOU! I want to learn what you think about this blog, the recipes I share, what you would like to see more of on Crunchy Creamy Sweet and to get to know you, my readers, better. Hence this reader survey.
I am super excited to hear what you guys have to say and also scared a little to hear the criticism. But I am planning to learn from it and make this blog more useful for you!

I truly appreciate if you filled it out as honestly as you can. It’s completely anonymous.
Vanilla Sugar Cookie Dough Ice Cream – super easy homemade ice cream with bits of vanilla sugar cookie dough stirred right in! Also, enter to win an ice cream maker from Hamilton Beach!
What does a baker do in summer? Except, going crazy because you are not supposed to turn the oven on. Even though you are craving that banana bread like crazy. And brownies. And muffins.
You make ice cream.
Fantastic vanilla ice cream that does not require cooking a custard because there are no eggs involved in this treat. I will keep my eggs for the bread and muffins.
Then you take that ice cream and stop yourself from spooning the whole thing right into your mouth, but instead you stir in bits of your favorite funfetti sugar cookie dough (that you can’t bake) right in. And then you blog about it.
Because you love to share your crazy sweet treat ideas.
Because you love to spread a little bit of sweet deliciousness into other people’s lives.
Chocolate Coffee Milkshake – creamy treat you can make in just 2 minutes! Perfect drink for chocolate and coffee lovers to cool off on a hot day!
In case you didn’t know I love coffee, here is another creation I have been enjoying recently. Coffee, chocolate, ice cream and milk – whipped into a creamy perfection. Oh yes, my mornings needed it!
I love that I can just throw everything into my blender and press the shake button. In under a minute, I have perfectly whipped milkshake in a glass, ready to be sipped on while I work in the morning.
Also, it’s the Milkshake Week! A super fun event hosted by Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil! Some of my favorite bloggers are participating and sharing their fantastic milkshake recipes! You need to check them out! Also, there are giveaways to enter (here and here) with some amazing prizes!
Caramel Iced Coffee Ice Cream – have your iced coffee and your ice cream in one amazing dessert! Caramel Macchiato Iced Coffee from International Delight gets a frozen makeover!
I am obsessed with this ice cream. It all starts with my love for coffee. I can’t imagine my day without it. During the hot season, the hot brew is often replaced by the iced version. But it all just got better with International Delight’s Iced Coffee in few fantastic flavors.
Mediterranean Chickpea Burger Wrap with Tzatziki Sauce – a healthy lunch or dinner idea a whole family will love!
Fresh cucumber and dill sauce in a super easy wrap with Mediterranean Chickpea Burger
. How about that for your lunch? Especially if you are busy and need something healthy and easy. STAT.
I love summer for all the fresh veggies that inspire us to create dishes full of flavor. It also inspires us to eat healthier. These wraps are all of this. I was asked by MorningStar Farms
to try one of their newest products and use it in a healthy dish. I was really excited about this challenge as I am trying to include more meatless dinners into our menu but create dishes that are easy to prepare.
Summer days may be meant to be lazy but mine are busy. Being a mom of three little kids and a full time blogger makes for early mornings and late nights. I also wanted to think outside of the box and see if I can use the burgers in a different dish than sandwich it in a bun.
Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cracker Treats – fun no-bake treats that a whole family will love! This couldn’t be easier!
Sometimes simple is better.
Like these treats for example. Peanut butter sandwiched between two pieces of graham crackers and dipped in chocolate. Things don’t get easier than that! These treats will rock your world for two reasons: a) hello, chocolate and peanut butter combo aka the most loved flavor combo ever; b) dipping things in chocolate is just pure fun.
Add these to your list for this summer. Right next to s’mores. Or even better, add a toasted marshmallow right over the peanut butter layer! BAM!
