Apple Pie Ice Cream

What I made: Apple Pie Ice Cream Original Recipe or did I make it myself? Well…I started with a vanilla base recipe from Bon Appetit, and added sliced apple pie from Costco. Did you say apple pie from Costco? Yes! It’s my weakness. For $9.99 you get an oversized, double crust apple pie, that satisfies…

Tin Roof Ice Cream

I’m so happy that I discovered tin roof ice cream! And by discover, I mean stumbled upon it in my epicurious recipe box. I first saw the recipe for fudge ripple, which made my mouth water, which led to the chocolate covered peanuts, and then the ice cream. Oh my! Did that sound good! I’ve…

Thai Iced Tea Milkshake

I think I made this Thai iced tea milkshake to tease Miles. I’ve had a bag of Thai iced tea in my cupboard for a while now, and have made popsicles, cake, and now a milkshake, but not the iced tea.  Every time I go to make the tea, I see how much I have,…

Toffee Crunch Ice Cream

Ok, so maybe I’m just going through an ice cream phase.  I can’t seem to get enough of my new ice cream maker!  And it’s still a little summery out, so there’s still time for a little batch of toffee crunch ice cream.  I wasn’t really trying to break new boundaries with this flavor, it…

Caramel Fudge Ice Cream Waffle Sandwiches

The other day I went to lunch with a coworker and had a scoop of ice cream wrapped in a waffle.  It was gluttonous and wonderful.  I wanted to make my own version at home, so I made these caramel fudge waffle ice cream sandwiches. There was something about making them in sandwich form that…

Sriracha Ice Cream

For my second installment of “it’s too hot to use the oven so let’s make lots of ice cream”, I made sriracha ice cream and topped it with bacon. Yep, bacon. I’m a firm believer that just about everything is better with bacon. To be honest, I’m not a fan of spicy foods or desserts….

Coffee Ice Cream Bars

Making coffee ice cream bars on a hot summer day? Genius!  Trying to take pictures of the ice cream bars on a hot summer day when the heat index is 105° and your central air is barely working?  Tragic! I’m still existing through what has to be the hottest summer I can remember.  Since this…

New City Microcreamery

During my Massachusetts vacation, I spent half of the week in Cambridge and half in Berlin. Berlin for me was like staying in the country. I was in the country. I was surrounded by farmland and forests and it was heavenly! During the day I sat on the front porch, working on my laptop while…

Thomas Sweet

Do you remember the other day when I talked about my binge-fest at The Diner? Before we even finished eating we knew we wanted a milkshake next. As we waited for our table, I saw a milkshake on a server’s tray and couldn’t get the image out of my head. At the moment, however, we…

Blue Cheese and Pear Ice Cream

Blue cheese and pear ice cream.  When I first heard of it, I couldn’t decide if it sounded good or not.  I love blue cheese and pears in salads, but for ice cream?  Maybe? When I saw a picture of the ice cream, it was served with a croissant and salami and it looked delicious,…

Banana Ice Cream with Nilla Wafers

Whenever I’m in the mood for a drive, I head to my favorite ice cream shop in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore called The Charmery. Every time I go, there’s a new unique flavor to try. On this particular visit, they had a flavor called Nanners and Cream. It was a banana flavored ice cream…

Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Ice Cream

My cupboard is full of odds and ends.  Remnants of left over recipe items that I’m never sure if I’m going to use again.  I usually don’t even keep them.  I just toss what I don’t use (yes I know this is wasteful).  That was the old me.  Now I hold onto everything “just in…
