Rock Father Recipe: Sara Lee Toasted Pound Cake Chocolate Strawberry Sundae #SLSweetTreats

Sara LeeWith Spring here and the cold (mostly) behind us, the little ones have been asking for ice cream again (a "sometimes" treat), and a new spin on an old favorite recently popped-up, courtesy of my friends at Sara Lee, who've teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER to help bring this "sweet treat" to the masses . It's funny how the simplest of changes can really bring new excitement to an old standard, and this is one of those occasions - toasting Sara Lee Frozen Pound Cake to add a warm layer to a Chocolate Strawberry Sundae, complete with a little crispness, and the soft goodness you'd expect.

Giveaway: A Chance to Win a Rare Promotional T-Shirt from Disney's FROZEN!

Back in February, I had the opportunity to spend a few days visiting Walt Disney Animation Studios as part of the press tour for Disney's FROZEN. With something that's become so big that it's forever cemented it's place as a pop culture phenomenon, I'm fortunate and thankful to have been able to make such a hands-on connection with it and the folks behind it - if only for a short time. While I was out there, the folks at Disney hooked me up with some things... one of which stands out as something really unique. It's actually so unique - at least I think that it is - that I can't find any other pictures or reference to it online. I'd imagine the only other people that have these either worked on FROZEN, work for Disney, or were members of the media that were invited out to cover the film. Tonight, I'm giving all of YOU a chance to own it...


On May 30, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will release MALEFICENT, the live-action "re-invention" of SLEEPING BEAUTY with a focus on the titular villain, played here by Angelina Jolie. Today, Disney hit my inbox with a new featurette focusing on "The Legacy" of Maleficent, complete with some words from Jolie and Elle Fanning, who plays Princess Aurora in the new film. Check it out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
