    Sure, we go nuts for vintage eBay scores and the latest runway trends, but there's nothing that stops R29ers dead in their tracks faster than some good ol' food porn. So, when Erica and Lauren of HonestlyWTF launched their equally delicious blog, HonestlyYUM, we just had to drop everything. Each week, we'll spotlight their creative concoctions. Go ahead, try to look away — we dare you.

    The HonestlyYUM team is starting to develop a problem. First was Todd’s boozy milkshake. Now, it’s boozy ice-cream sandwiches. We’re a little obsessed with alcoholic desserts. As a novice beer-ice-cream maker, I found an amazing recipe that I’ve used here. There’s no cheating on this recipe, too — the ice cream is not just flavored with a stout beer but also has alcohol in it! Make sure to pick a beer that is not hoppy. I used AleSmith Brewing Company’s Speedway Stout, which has a perfect caramel-roasted malt flavor.

    And as if that wasn’t rich enough, I sandwiched the stout ice cream with my favorite chocolate-chip-cookie recipe, ever. By browning the butter before adding it to the batter, the chocolate-chip cookies have a wonderful toffee flavor to them and are slightly crispy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside. The whole thing comes together by rolling the sides of the sandwiches in crushed, salted peanuts and pretzels. I know — talk about gilding the lily, but what the hell!

But, that's not the case. read

Taylor Swift has kept the world guessing by baring her midriff while refusing to expose her belly button. But, while the matching-set look Swifty prefers is cute, the high waistline doesn't always translate well to other forms of clothing — namely, jeans. This has been a struggle for the short-torsoed among us since read
