Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts

Cinnamon Crunch Ice Cream

If I had to pick my favorite ice cream flavor, it would be a hard choice between Mint Chip and Cinnamon. Which, admittedly, doesn’t seem like a fair fight. Mint Chip is the heavyweight, appearing absolutely everywhere, while underdog Cinnamon is criminally ignored as an ice cream flavor. I first tasted cinnamon ice cream as…

Almond Coconut Fudge Ripple Ice Cream

I was channeling Ben & Jerry when I came up with this ice cream. It starts with an almond ice cream base, then has swirls of marzipan, gooey coconut, and fudge sauce, and big chunks of chocolate-covered almonds. It’s kind of a big deal. When I beheld my masterpiece, I said to myself, “Self, what…

Brownie Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream Sandwiches

Arrested Development Anticipation week continues, aka that week where 10th Kitchen and I post recipes and obscure in-jokes about a tv show that went off the air 7 years ago. As a blogging strategy to not alienate any readers, it’s pure genius! So far, we’ve had an Elderflower Collins (with a side of toast), Bluth’s…

Chocolate-Dipped Frozen Bananas

Big news. BIG NEWS!! Sorry to shout, but I’m way too excited to be bothered by social niceties like moderating my Internet tone of voice. (Tone of type?) Do you know what’s happening one week from today? I’ll give you a hint: it starts with an “A,” ends with an “rrested Development,” and is only…

Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Milkshakes

Maybe I’ve been wrong this whole time. Maybe I’ve been barking up the wrong tree with this food writing thing. Maybe I’m wasting my time taking food photos. Maybe my life’s purpose, my main mission, my raison d’être, is just to shove random things in a blender with ice cream. I mean, it worked with…

Pie Milkshakes (For Pi Day)

Pi Day is here, it’s finally here! The day I have been planning for all month, and the day normal people aren’t even aware exists! Sweet Pi Day. I wrote about a Grapefruit Meringue Pie yesterday, but today, in honor of Pi Day, I want to share a milkshake recipe. [If this blog were high-tech,…

Lemon-Ginger Ice Cream Tarts

These lemon-ginger ice cream tarts may look a little fancy (or maybe they don’t—what do I know?) but they have a humble origin. Growing up, my mom used to make a super-easy dessert during the summer. It was basically softened vanilla ice cream mixed with lemonade concentrate, poured into a 9×13 pyrex dish and topped…

Peanut-Chocolate Toffee Sundaes + A Giveaway!

So as you might have heard, I have a book coming out in—deep breaths—one week. I’m not quite sure how that happened! It seems like only yesterday I was squeezing into an apron and haulin’ my 30-week pregnant self and a whole trunkful of handmade candy to our photoshoots…and now those very same photos grace…
