While I may not have figured out my signature summer cocktail just yet, here’s my Summer Sixteen signature dessert. I made this two weeks in a row, and considering I hardly every make the same thing twice, it automatically qualifies.

Fresh Mint Chocolate Swirl Ice Cream

A few summers ago, my friend Danielle and I both got really excited about these ice cream sandwiches on Smitten Kitchen.  I, personally, have some issues with ice cream sandwiches in general, mostly because my teeth are really sensitive and I can’t handle the thought of biting into ice cream. Also, because I hate it when […]

Malted Vanilla Milkshake

The rest of the team is making a semifreddo today, which I’m passing on for two reasons: It contains raw eggs. My friend Carole told me the likelihood of you-know-what contamination is very rare from the eggs we buy/eat from grocery stores, but it still freaks me out a little bit. My freezer is currently […]

My friend Nicole came over for a belated birthday dinner a few weeks ago, and I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to further develop my ice cream skillz. I’m still learning about how it all works, and it looks like eggs are the wild card. All the recipes I’ve seen in the past […]
