Cookies & Creme Milkshake

  • Indulge in this cookies & creme milkshake and you won’t be sorry!

    1. Apparently at Table for Two this week, it’s cookies and creme week. I don’t have any objections to this and you shouldn’t either.

    2. Cars are fun. New cars are awesome for the fact that there’s usually nothing wrong with them. My car was new 60,000 miles and 5 1/2 years ago. I’m now unwillingly forking out $600+ to fix it this weekend. Who knew an engine mount would just suddenly “wear off.” I mean, shouldn’t that be something that you make to last? I mean, after all, it is holding up an engine. I get the wear and tear thing, but I feel like something as big as an engine mount should last the lifetime of a car. I called the dealership cause I want genuine parts and not some shady off the street parts at a private mechanic and it’s almost $400 for the part. FOUR HUNDRED! That’s without labor. So I guess it’ll likely be more than $600 this weekend. Good things there’s such thing as a savings account but man, what a bummer.


    3. Okay, Taylor Swift. As much as I want to not like her songs, they are just so damn catchy. Have you heard her latest one? I was heading to work from a doctor’s appointment (which my doctor & work are 1 hour apart, crazy) and I guess she had just released it Tuesday or something cause the radio BLEW UP with this single. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” catchy as woah. It was on every station that I turned to. At first I was like, “eh, this is so stupid, it’s another break up song about another guy (which I heard it’s about Jake Gyllenhaal), duuuuumb, pshhhh” and then the more they drilled the song into my brain, I was SINGING ALONG and being all like “wooo-weeee! never ever ever!!!” <—if you heard the song, you’ll know what I’m talking about, haha

    4. We’re moving at work. We were scheduled to move in MAY. Just a tad behind. Finally got notice this week that our entire division is moving from the 3rd floor to the 4th floor. Sweet. Checked out my new office and I have TWO windows, baby! And even better is that I look out onto NY Ave. so I can stalk tourists. Just kidding. I can now stare at the Washington Monument, the glorious sunny sky (although, it would’ve been better if we moved early summer so I would’ve been able to catch more of that light), and not do any work. KIDDING! Having a window is so glorious. It’s ridiculous how giddy I am about the move. I’m in my new office on Monday and it’s stupid silly but I’m EXCITED to go to work on Monday. HAHA wtf is wrong with me.

    5. Clearly too much sugar from this cookies & creme milkshake.

    6. Shelly, bless her heart, she prayed to the shoe gods and my wedges are arriving TODAY! Be prepared for IG to blow up.

    7. Speaking of IG – do you like the new interface? How about the mapping? I love it. You have the choice to map it or not, but it’s cool to look back on where you took the pictures. I checked out mine and you could totally see the road trip down the East coast cause of the mapping. I think my new favorite thing is how the profile looks now AND also, if you haven’t figured it out now, if you tap on “comment” on your photo and want to reply to someone, just tap their comment and it’ll have a little slide out thing on the left & give you an option to reply and it’ll type in their username for you. Score!

    7a. AND the new Pinterest iPad app is just PHENOM. Finally. An addiction I can now bring to my bed. That sounded really wrong. I’m sorry.

    8. Is it cookies and CREME or cookies and CREAM? I always do “creme” but I also know it’s “cream,” but then again it’s like donut and doughnut and gray and grey.

    9. This cookies and creme milkshake is too good for words. It’s CFA cookies & creme milkshake good. It’s definitely probably healthier than theirs and that’s kind of gross cause theirs is something like 700 calories, and mine is probably 500ish (still horrible) but whatever calories I save counts, yes? Just don’t drink BOTH servings of this and you should be fine.

    10. Indulging is okay. Why? Because it’s FRIDAY! And because I said so.

    CooKies and cream is my jam! I’m totally indulging in a milkshake today – because it’s Friday!

  • shelly (cookies and cups) says:

    You blessed my heart. As a Southern girl I don’t know how to take that ;)
    BUT I will take a milkshake…or 4.

  • Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    1. totally okay. 2. being an adult sucks huh 3. clearly Pandora hasn’t gotten the memo yet and that’s all I listen to ;) But really how could someone break up with Jakeypoo?! 4. IG pics from your new office! 5. never 6. can’t wait 7. I’m only annoyed that Ig is notifying me that everyone has now added like 5billion pics to their maps. not necessary. 8. CREAM girl. did Ree teach you nothing? lol 9. I need this for breakfast

    lol sorry… you had too many points to comment on ;)

  • Aimee @ ShugarySweets says:

    OMG you totally cracked me up in this post. All I have to say is I am 39 years old and I find myself singing Taylor Swift daily. Could be because I have three daughter who listen to TS day and night…day and night…Day AND NIGHT.

    The milkshake looks divine. I heart milkshakes with stuff in em.

  • JotaSousa says:

    OMG :o
    Looks delicious!!!

  • Janet @foodbeatyful says:

    oh no you didnt! this is my absolute favorite dessert – and since it’s girls weekend at my house i think this will definitely be recreated. where did you get the cute milkshake glasses too?

    • Julie says:

      I got the glasses from World Market.

  • DessertForTwo says:

    Hah! I loved your list!

    What’s CFA? Sorry, I’m not down with the lingo.

    • Julie says:

      Chick-Fil-A :)

  • Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray says:

    A la Rachel, a multipoint reply:

    1) I am sadly (except not so much) addicted to TSwift. Like she’s my fave Pandora station. And yeaaaah, I know I sometimes feel a little bit 15 years old singing to “Mean.” But you know what? I want to wear a pretty dress and have a cute boy woo me in a rowboat. Sue me.

    2) Um, your office is way too cool. I have no windows. Just blank walls. Although I do have a door, which is more than most of my friends in cubicles can say.

    3) I am of the firm belief that it’s “creme” when you’re not aaaactually using milk (think “fruit drink” instead of “fruit juice”), and “cream” when your ingredients are less fake. Or maybe I’m just COMPLETELY overthinking this.

    Thank God it’s Friday–can you tell I’m ready to give my brain a break? Milkshakes for all!

  • Mackenzie {SusieFreakingHomemaker} says:

    I love this cookies and cream theme you have going on. Do you by any chance deliver??

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says:

    #2: It’s stuff like this that makes me seriously thankful I have a husband that “does cars”. Everybody has someone they know in some industry that gets them deals, but I’m pretty happy with him being in that one. Huge cost saver!
    #7: Hate the new interface. I think I just hate change period. I’ve never been a fan of the “mapping” stuff though. I don’t do foursquare and I don’t like some phone (and therefore the entire internet) knowing where I am at any given time. Plus, I’m always home so my picture mapping would be super lame.
    #8,9,10: All I can now think of is the milkshake song…grrr. This looks worth it at least ;)

  • Mercedes says:

    Cookies and Cream anything is my favorite! And I love Taylor! Her songs are always so catchy and I have wanted to hear this new one! And now I have, thanks to you!

  • amy @ fearless homemaker says:

    this looks amazing! and i can’t wait to see your wedges – you know i love me some shoes!

  • Carla @ Carlas Confections says:

    Your list cracked me up! I loved it :)

    1. Im excited for your new office! Slacking off in a bigger office is MUCH better than slacking off in a smaller office ;)

    2. Why does everything about cars have to cost so much?!?

    3. I cant wait to see your shoes on IG; AND I had no idea about the replying thing! THX!!!!

    4. This shake looks bomb diggidy! And of course, any saved calorie is a calorie you can spend somewhere else ;)

  • Jennifer @ Mother Thyme says:

    You totally rock with the cookies and cream milkshakes this week! Hands down I would take yours over mine anyday! :) I’m going to be craving this all day! :) Cookies and cream is my weakness! I love that Pinterest is on iPad now. I just have to figure out how to lock the app since my kids play with it so they don’t go pinning all kinds of crazy stuff. :)

  • Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel says:

    Cookies and creme week is awesome! This milkshake looks divine! Judging by the fact it’s already pushing 100 degrees in California at 10am, I think I deserve one now, too :) also, congrats on your new office! Two windows sounds awesome but personally, I could NEVER get work done because I actually WOULD spend all my time people watching. Gah, I am a voyeur. Anyway, have a good weekend Julie!

  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious says:

    I loved this post! Seems like I’m getting to know you better and better Julie, Ms. cookies-and-cream-and-taylor-swift-lover, among other things of course.

    As for this shake – YUM! That second photo is so drool-worthy! I feel like it should be on the cover of some food magazine!

  • Stephanie says:

    2. You could technically find the OEM part from a secondhand dealer and it would still be a geniune. And then bring said parts to a private mechanic who can fix your car at a lower price.

    3. I never heard that Taylor Swift song until you mentioned it. It sure is catchy, haha! Can’t wait to karaoke it!

    4. Yay for office windows!

    and 8. I like cookies and creme. ^_^

    Happy Friday!!!

  • Gerry @ Foodness Gracious says:

    How cool would it be to pay the mechanics with these milk shakes, I’m all for the barter system in life…try it, they might say yeah (if they have any brains!!)

  • Nicole @ The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie says:

    You are killing me with all this cookies & creme goodness this week. I was *this* close to purchasing a pack of Oreos at the store yesterday!

    And don’t even get me started on Taylor Swift. Why does her music have to be so darn catchy! I feel like a 15 year old for loving it so much!

    Why the heck have I not been following you on Instagram?!!?? I shall have remedy this.

  • amanda @ fake ginger says:

    I heart list posts like this! I need to do them more often! I just added that Taylor Swift song to my Spotify playlist – believe it or not I haven’t heard up. My husband loves T Swift like I love list posts so I better let him know she has a new song too. :P

    I haven’t had a milkshake in fooooorever. I need to get on that.

  • Cassie says:

    Holy cow, I am out of breath after reading this post girl. You are hilarious! I like Taylor Swift, but Paul LOVES her. Like really truly loves her. It’s pretty comical! The milkshakes look aaaamazing!

  • Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. says:

    You can keep the cookies and cream coming!! This is a good drink to cure the pain of those costly car repairs!

  • Lynna says:

    I love cookies and cream milkshakes!! :D

  • Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Such a delicious looking milkshake…yum!

  • Kathryn says:

    All I talked about before I came on holiday was how I was going to have loads of milkshakes and I haven’t had one yet! I definitely need to take matters into my own hands.

  • sally @ sallys baking addiction says:

    Ugh I hate and i love taylor swift at the same time. i want to turn the radio off so badly but i.just.can’t!!!! i wish i saw these milkshakes when you posted them b/c i was in dire need of something cold, creamy, and sweet like this after my run this weekend! oooo and i have all the ingredients on hand. helloooo tuesday dessert :)

  • Jenny @ BAKE says:

    this milkshake is my secret obsession! they sell it in KFC over here, bringing this recipe into my house might be dangerous!

  • Ashley Madero says:

    Is the vanilla extract important for the recipe??!

    • Julie says:

      No, but suggested.

    • Taylor says:

      no but it taste so much better!!

  • Taylor says:

    loved it, its reminds me of mcdonalds oreo mcflurry making all the time now

  • Toni says:

    Just made these with mint Oreos! DELICIOUS!

    • Julie says:

      Oh yum! That flavor sounds good!
