Things That'll Get You In The Doghouse

What Does Summertime, Road Tar,
And A Doghouse Have In Common?
By Eric R, Nielsen
Let's just say that the first two will put you in the doghouse in a New York minute.
It was the late 1950's or early 1960s when my best friend's older brother, came across a dilemma that was more challenging than first expected, while walking home one day.
Back in New Jersey, during the heat of summer, repairing the roads was all the rage. Not like today where they just get their asphalt and lay it down as they progress down the road until done. No... this road repair was a project and a half. One worth a young boy's valueable time to watch get done.
Tar went down over the old road. Then came the stones, and finally the big steam roller to press it all down. It looked great when done, but the rest of the summer you had to deal with mom each time you wanted to run into the house to use the bathroom.
You see the tar was always sticking to your sneakers. And it wasn't long before mom caught the culprit who kept bringing that sticky stuff onto her floors. A couple of swats with a belt or a wooden spoon was all it took to teach you to learn how to take off your sneakers before entering the house.
Now let me ask you: Did you think that a little tar on your sneakers was all it took to get in the doghouse? Hell no, that title goes to my to my best friend's brother Jimmie. You see he did what any smart guy would do when coming across a barrier keeping him from getting home on time. Like a good boy, you ask for an adults opinion before you do anything, right?
And that's exactly what Jimmie did. You see he was heading home when he came across a section of road that just got a serious coating of hot tar. And like a stream where the water is running maybe a little bit quicker than you think might make it impossible for you to cross. You decide to chance the risky crossing rather than find a better area to cross.
As a youngster Jimmie asked the men if it was ok to cross here and they gave him the OK. Carefully trying to make it to the other side. The very thing you're thinking right now happened. Yup, Jimmie took a tumble. And to make things worse, a roll or two.
Damn, I wish I had a lemonade stand on the side of the road or something, so I could have seen it happen. Anyway that wasn't the bad part of his day. No, not even close.
It was trying to take himself into his mom's house to clean up, when he got snagged and dragged back out of the house by the ear. Once outside his mom gave him a serious rub down with gasoline and she made sure to make the rub down one he would never forget.
Living next door I heard the moaning and groaning, came to the door and watched this sad event take place. Wow, that boy was in for a very long clean up, not to mentiona good beat'n, and a very long stay in the doghouse. Never the less. When we finally did see Jimmie again that summer, you can tell he was more than ready for the school year to start.
Moral of the story: Never listen to a stranger when they tell you it's ok to cross a freshly tarred road in the middle of summer. And save your breath, rather than try to convince your mom that it was the road crew's fault for you taking a tumble in the tar. She just remembers the tar you just dragged onto her clean floors and all the time she'll spend cleaning up after you.
Oh yeah... the best use for gasoline is cutting the grass on Saturday.
Got a story? Knock yourself out!

Camping Meets Heavenly Smores

A Recipe For Heavenly S'mores

By Eric R. Nielsen

This summer' s camping and barbecuing can always use something interesting when it comes to chowing down. Steak, hamburgers, hot dogs are all wonderful meals to have at the end of the day, but dessert is the most important part of any meal. It allows everyone to relax out on the patio or around a campfire, talking about the day's activities.

For those of you who are ice cream junkies and never miss a chance to serve up some ice cream at the end of the day; have I got a treat for you. We're not talking about your mom's s'mores either. No, these are the ultimate s'mores. Heavenly S'mores if you will.

To make them you need to bake yourself a few Cinnamon Graham Cracker Waffle Cones. Melt some dark chocolate and warm some marshmallow fluff. When ready, pour the melted chocolate in the Graham Cracker Waffle Cone and coat the inside completely. Pour the excess chocolate out and pop the waffle cone into the freezer for 30 seconds to harden the chocolate.

Next pour in the warmed marshmallow fluff and coat the inside of the waffle cone like you did with the chocolate. You may need to spread the marshmallow around with the back of a spoon to evenly coat over the chocolate.

Don't worry about leaving too much in the bottom of the cone. It's ok :)~ You're just making that last bite the best thing you ever had. As soon as you scoop out the extra marshmallow, you're ready to fill the cone with some ice cream.

I recommend Dreyers Rocky Road Ice Cream if you have it handy. Now, if you're camping, the cones can be made in advance. Just add the chocolate and marshmallow on site so the cones remain crisp.

As far as where do you get the ice cream? May I suggest making it on the spot. Simply take some of that ice you brought to cool your food and place it in a large ziplock bag with some salt.
Now in a small ziplock place the ice cream making ingredients. Seal the small bag completely and place it inside the larger bag that has the ice. Next... sit there and rock the large ziplock back and forth between your hands and watch the ice cream thicken as it gets colder.

When done, just scoop some ice cream into the heavenly s'mores waffle cone and enjoy.

For ice cream making recipes. Simply search "Ice Cream In A Bag."

One Of America's Favorite Food Smells

Cinnamon: An American Favorite
By Eric "ConeKing" Nielsen
Well, summer's almost here. The kids are getting out of school. The temperature is about to rise, making way for summer fairs and carnivals.
I'm sure many Americans will visit many of these fun events this year. And as they do, Im positive they will stand in the long line at the cinnamon bun booth for a cup of joe and delicious bun.
It always amazes me how our noses pick up a familar smell. Such as cinnamon when baked in a cinnamon bun. And right away it clicks in our mind that we have to track this item down and enjoy it.
Like the fairs and carnivals with their sweet smells. Cinnamon worked very well as a crowd pleaser at Giggles' Ice Cream Parlor; when we use to bake our Cinnamon Ice Cream Cones fresh each day.
People would come into the store, dragged in by their noses, to pick out their favorite flavor of ice cream to match to the cinnamon cone. Usually it would be cherry or blueberry cheesecake ice cream. And the smiles on their faces always let us know we were onto a good thing.
This summer, consider looking into purchasing a Waffle Cone Maker and bake some cones that will become a grand, family summer tradition. There is nothing better than the fresh ingredients in a crispy waffle cone right off the waffle cone iron. It sure beats the waffle cones from a bag mix at your favorite ice cream store, that have been sitting around becoming far less than crispy. Don't you deserve better?
If you need a waffle cone iron visit and we will set you up with our 2009 Summer Bargain. If you have a waffle cone maker already and you want cones that don't leak. And cookie cone recipes that come in numerous flavors so everyone can mix and match their favorite flavor of ice cream to a different cone each day. Then stop by and see for yourself the best cones and the best deal ice cream lovers will find this summer. Order your copy of

How To Turn An Ice Cream Cone Into A Fortune Cookie Birthday Invitation
By Eric "ConeKing" Nielsen

For those, at home waffle cone bakers, who want to know how to do something different with their waffle cone maker. Have I got a treat for you. How would you like to turn a waffle cone into a fortune cookie and use it to extend the fun your child has with his or her Birthday Party Preparations?

One day is never enough for any of us to enjoy our birthdays. It seems we want the good times to last forever. And for a child this point is extra true.
Well, take this idea and grow the excitement, building up to the day of the birthday. Your child will love you for it.
Start by have some birthday invitations made on the computer or hand written with the birthday boy or girl’s name, address, date and time of the party, and any other important info you want to add. If you want to download some pre-made fortune cookie strips to add your information to. You can visit
Begin by placing your invitation strips nearby. Mix up your favorite waffle cone recipe and warm up the waffle cone iron. Need Waffle Cone Recipes that aren’t full of holes and instructions for making waffle cones that don’t leak. Visit the above website.

Before you start baking the waffle cones. Take a long handle wooden spoon out of the kitchen draw. Flip the useful end of the spoon around and place it back in the kitchen drawer just enough so when you close the drawer, the handle of the spoon sticks out. This is what you will use to form your fortune cookies around.
Now you are ready to bake the cones the way you always do. When you are done baking your first waffle cone and it’s ready to be formed into a fortune cookie. Here’s what you do.
Open the waffle iron and place your birthday invitation onto the cone, just above the middle half of the cone. Our free invitation strips have “Your Invited” on them and are designed to have that part sticking out of the fortune cookie. Check them out.
Now grab the closest end of the cone and fold the waffle cone in half, away from you, toward the back of the waffle iron. DO NOT RUN YOUR FINGER ALONG THE FOLD AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CONE.
With both hands. Grab the ends of the waffle cone at both ends of the fold, carefully preventing the top of the cone from folding backward or forward. Keep it straight!
Now move the bottom-center of the cone’s fold over the wooden spoon handle and bend the two corners of the cone down as if having both of your hands touching each other.
Hold the cone in place until the cone cools enough so it will remain in the shape of the fortune cookie as described in the diagram at the top of the page.
Caution: Folding a cone is hot on the fingers. For relief see note below.
Note: Rolling a waffle cone or making a fortune cookie out of a waffle cone can be very hot. The easiest way to find relief is to have a small bowl of ice water and a towel nearby.
Before rolling a waffle cone or forming a fortune cookie; dip your fingers into the ice water until cold. Then quickly dry with a towel and work with the waffle cone.
Another way to keep the fingers cool is the “Tippy Finger Method”. This method is something we are all familiar with. Standing on hot pavement during the summer in bare feet. Rocking back and forth on tippy toes, to keep the feet from burning.
When rolling a waffle cone or forming a fortune cookie. Your fingers will get hot. The way to hold the waffle cone so your fingers feel the heat as little as possible. Is to begin by holding the cone between the thumb and first finger.
Then when the fingers get too hot. Change your grip on the waffle cone. Now grip it between the thumb and the middle finger. Now Tippy Finger back and forth until your done. Then move on to the next waffle cone. I think you'll find the thumb doesn't feel the heat as much as the fingers do.

Learn How To Wow Your Next Ice Cream Social Profits

Learn How To Wow Your Next Ice Cream Social Profits
Let me ask you this. Are you copying what everyone one else is doing when it comes to your Ice Cream Social? Did you ever think that maybe this is why your sales are stagnant?

Now, ask yourself this. If you were a jellybean. Would you want to be the jellybean of Easter's past? Or would you like to be the jelly bean of all time? The Jelly Belly jelly bean?

Would rather be like Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Parlors, when it comes to ice cream? Or would you rather make a name for yourself by being creative enough to spin off in a new direction when it comes to ice cream, as Cold Stone did?

Each of the two new ideas above created such a fantastic curiosity that people had to give them a try. And when they did, they couldn't get enough of the new product.

Now, when it comes to an ice cream social. The idea is to create enough excitement to get people pulling their wallet out like there is no tomorrow.

Let's use smell for example. At a typical bake sale the food for sale is already baked, and wrapped. Ready to go home with the customer. And it goes too.

But think for a moment how much more could be sold if the items for sale were being made all day long. Baked throughout the bake sale day with the smell luring customers to the sale counter. Don't you think more sales would occur?

For Less Than $20.00 This Little Giant Of A Book Will Make A Big
Difference In Your Next Ice Cream Social's Bottom Line.
With plenty of make in advance ideas your next ice cream social can't help but be the best event ever.

Now, what if I told you that if your organization was to invest in a waffle cone maker and bake cones on sight. Sending that delicious home baked smell out over the visiting guests. Do you think that it would create an easy avenue for mouth watering customers ready to purchase your product? Absolutely!

Here's the whole idea. You can make a sundae like you always do and have the people who support your efforts each year buy it because they want to help. Or you can kick the whole ice cream social idea up a notch and have people buying the product you offer because they can't get enough of what you offer.

An irresistible product and a fan base of supporters equals more profits. It's the perfect yes-yes deal. People with money to support your cause and a product that your supporters feel is well worth their money.

Let's not forget the word of mouth explosion of future supporters that goes along with a great product people can get behind.
Need free advertising to get the supporters out to your next ice cream social? Well a new product creates new interest.

In the past I'm sure you had no problem getting the local radio stations and newspapers to plug your event. But what if what they reported to their audience was something fantastically new? Something they tasted and found delicious. What kind of news report might you then receive? Something fantastic I would think.

Do you think your Ice Cream Social could benefit from the excitement created? Do you think more people would be willing to come out and share in your event? And might more people come from further away because of the interest in what you are selling? Can you say: "YES!"

Here it is... My idea is for your organization to consider what will happen if you take ice cream to the next level. I'm talking about making delicious tasting, as well as delicious smelling cookie cones for your supporters to mix and match with their favorite flavor of ice cream.

My book: "The Great American Ice Cream Cone" has 16 different recipes for ice cream cones, along with plenty of ideas that can be used at your next ice cream social, that you will only grow your profits.

And the best thing is. YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING ON A BIG SCALE. Start small and simple and grow as you feel comfortable. Use one or two ideas and expand later if you want.

Take one recipe. For example: My Classic Cinnamon Cone. Did you know that cinnamon is so popular of a smell that people simply can't resist following their noses to its location? Why do you think Cinnabon is so popular?

Start your next ice cream social with this one cone. Make a regular ice cream cone size, a sundae cone size, and a ice cream cone bowl for sundaes. That's it! You'll be able to command an increase in price for your product. One that everyone will justify by their nose.

You'll have bragging rights that you can use in your radio and newspaper advertising. Plus bragging rights that your supporters will run with as they pass the word on to friends and neighbors. Making it simple to see future growth and profits for future ice cream socials.

I guarantee the neighbors next door to where you hold your ice cream social will come over to investigate. Even if they never visited any of your past events. I'm telling you the cinnamon smell will do the job for you.

Sell what you normally sell. Just add the smell, a cone for the supporters that like their ice cream simple, a sundae cone for the ice cream explorers, and a ice cream cone bowl for the traditional sundae lovers that have to have it in a bowl.

Heck, you can even make a cone. Cut it into wedges while it's still hot. Pile them into a small French fry type bag and serve then with a small container of cinnamon honey, cream cheese icing, or cinnamon icing for dipping. I call them "Dimples and Giggles".

I know most organizations like to keep their ice cream socials simple. And you can with my ideas. Use however many different flavors of ice cream that you normally use. Serve one or two flavors of cones. Or one type with the traditional sugar cones and wafer cones.

Putting that little added touch to add profit to what you sell.
Use the Danish way of serving a regular waffle cone. One scoop of ice cream, a teaspoon of strawberry preserves, and dollop of fresh whipped cream. Then give the product a cute name.

The added touch and color this idea adds to the cone your supporters purchase, will make them feel comfortable that the price you charge them is well worth it.

Call the larger sundae cone something fun like "The Giggler". It makes people smile when they hear it and that is what you want to create at your fundraiser. Then make it like you would a sundae in a bowl. Give them a spoon and a napkin and they're off and running.

Then there's the ice cream cone bowl. Just bake the cone and while it's hot off the iron, you simply place the cone over a small upside down glass bowl and mold the cone into a bowl. Let cool and fill it with the customer's favorite sundae toppings. Slap it on a sheet of waxed paper or foil. Give them a spoon and a napkin and they are on their way smiling. Save money on plastic dishes.

Give my book a try, using one idea to add to your next ice cream social and you'll see for yourself that increasing profits at your next event won't be that hard to do.

Order now and receive free shipping and handling.

Need a cone maker that fits your budget? Simply, go to E-bay and order one new or used. Or visit a restaurant supply store near you for new and used waffle cone makers.

Now's the time with many ice cream businesses closing their doors to find deals.

Remember... have the cones baking all during the ice cream social. And if you typically have large crowds make the extra you need that morning or the night before. Place them in a bag as soon as they cool so they stay crispy until they are served. Crispy fresh cones are a must.

Back in the 1980s I set up a booth at California's 1st Strawberry Festival and with handmade cones we were voted the most popular booth at the event. So, if I can do it on a big scale. You too can do it with your volunteers on the neighborhood scale you choose.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ice Cream Cone Expert, Author of "The Great American Ice Cream Cone" and Inventor of the Original Gourmet Flavored Cookie Cone, Eric R. Nielsen wants everyone to enjoy handmade ice cream cones. Learn how to bake cones like a pro and wow your friends and family. Learn to make more profits at your next fundraiser using these ideas.

Economics Forcing Americans To Cook At Home

The morning trip to McDonald's for breakfast and lunch out with the guys has pretty much come to a screeching halt for a lot of Americans.

I know for myself. What I use to purchase at Wendy's for $6 and change now cost me nearly $10.00. Wow! Yet I just went out for chicken... only 8 pieces, one side and 4 biscuits and it cost me $18.00. If you don't think everyone is fighting for their survival. Think again.

So today, CNN and other news channels have begun reporting on the latest fallout of this economic problem the nation is dealing with. People are beginning to eat more of their meals at home.

Yes, Americans are starting to catch on to the fact that they will spend a whole lot more of their hard earned money if they should decide to live as though nothing abnormal is going on around them. Prices at their favorite eating holes are going up and a lot more of their money is coming out of their pocket for the pleasure. Leaving, a not so wonderful after taste, in their mouths.

Well, if Americans are going to be making the best out of eating more of their meals at home, then Ice Cream Junkies Dot Com would like to suggest having the most fun possible. Make those meals a family event for the whole gang.

We figure everyone wanting to cook at home will begin dusting off the cookbooks and maybe even buying a few new cookbooks, since this economic problem America faces isn't expected to end any time soon.

So let me invite you to where with some of that money you will save by eating at home. You can afford this one of a kind cookbook that packs loads of flavor and fun for the whole family.

Everyone loves ice cream, pudding, cookies, etc.. Well this cookbook, titled: "The Great American Ice Cream Cone" will have you wanting to match your favorite flavor of ice cream to a crispy cookie cone. Or make some chili and serve it in a cornbread bowl made fresh off the iron.

Whether you make cones or bowls. It doesn't matter what goes on the inside. Pudding, mousse, jello cubes, frank and beans. There's a blast to be found when the whole family gets involved.

So turn your economic downturn frown upside down and visit

How To Stay Out Of The Doghouse This Valentine's Day

Be on your best behavior your mother says...

Well, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. The hell with mom.

Pleasing your lady this Valentine's Day is what it's all about. has a cool, never fail, idea for a successful
date with your special someone that will keep you out of the doghouse
and in the lap of love this Valentine's Day.

Make enough time for a treat that will get you up close to the
windows of the soul for a bonding experience that will put you in
good standings for the rest of the day.

This Valentine's Day, visit an ice cream parlor for the traditional
sharing of an ice cream soda. Two straws. Strawberry, because
girls like pink and Valentine's Day, lets admit, is her day. Two lips
up close, with eyes making comments quietly heart to heart.

Go on take that smooch! And the night is yours guaranteed. That is, providing you don't blow it during the rest of the day.

King Pup
Beware the Doghouse This Valentine's Day

The Doghouse And Valentine's Day

Open Letter To The Boys This
Valentine's Day.

And Yes Ladies... You may want to pass this around to friends, both male and female so everyone is on the same page on this night of love.

When going out this Valentine's Day. Remember that you are to treat her like she's the most beautiful woman on the face of the earth or you risk being tossed in the Doghouse.

Many men that have gone down this road before you continue to make these same mistakes. DON'T LET THIS BE YOU!

Here's a few thing s to do and not to do this Valentine's Day.

When at dinner remember the statistic say you will look at other women at least 7 times. She's not stupid, so put the blinders on. Save it for another day.

Look in her eyes when talking to her. Then stare at her lips and comment how lovely they look.

Hold her hand you fool. She wants that closeness when out in public. Heck I'm 56 and I still hold my wife's hand all the time. It's not so bad, even after 33 years of marriage.

If you're not going out after dinner. Ask her to go for a walk. If you are? Start your date long before dinner. Take a walk together. Or even a drive if its too cold out for a walk.

And finally, Yes... holding the door is still a time honored habit you need to learn to do without thinking about it. Whether it s the car door or the building door as you both enter. Opening the door for her will say to all the ladies who catch a glimpse. "Yes... now there's a guy I would like to have in my life."

Sounds Stupid you say.

Foolish boy!!!!!! It's a guarantee you'll be the one of the few to get to the "Wonder Boy Status" in her heart.

Reap The Rewards My Boy... After All Isn't That What Valentine's Day Is All About??????!!!!!!!!!!

Beware Of The Doghouse... Valentine's Night is your Reward. You Surely Don't Want To End Up Sleeping Out Back In The Doghouse On This Night Of Love.

The Same Goes For The Ladies... You didn't think he was spending all his hard earned money for nothing did you????????? Like Momma's little boy. Your boy is on his best behavior for a reason.

I leave it up to you to wrap your mind around the Valentine's Day night out before he gives you that final drink that moves the odds of a good out come into his favor.

Beware The Doghouse

Beware Of The Doghouse

Back from the 1960's. J.C.Penney has a hit with their Christmas Advertising version of Look Who's In The Doghouse, designed to keep husbands out of the family doghouse.

Taken from the kitchen wall plaque version of the 1960's. Where Mom would put the deserving rule breaker in the doghouse until the next family member would decide to pull their Shananigans and take the next timeout.

Back then. And even today. People everywhere are rediscovering the fun and fond memories their family can create by palcing one of these hand crafted plaques in their home.

See why getting put in the doghouse can have the fingers pointing and smiles spreading humor in your family during family timeout. See for yourself how when Mom or Dad deserve a timeout how quickly the kids will jump to place them in the doghouse. Heaven forbid Grandmom should make a mistake.

Nearly gone forever. This 1960's classic family fun treat is becoming the family tradion once again.

If you haven't seen the hilarious, real version, of this traditional family fun timeout tool that everyone is talking about. Then you owe it to yourself to learn more about this cool gift that J.C. Penney has put their spin on.
