No Churn Cherry Garcia Ice Cream

No churn ice cream is the way to go when you want to make ice cream in a hurry but don’t have an ice cream maker. The base is made with sweetened condensed milk and lightened with whipped cream, which gives the finished ice cream a texture that is similar to that of regular ice cream with a lot less work.

Honeydew Granita

Honeydew Granita

Melons are probably some of the most refreshing summer fruits that you can eat. They’re mostly made up of water and a ripe one can have a tremendous amount of flavor without being too sweet. Watermelon is a picnic staple and honeydew is another favorite of mine, although there are lots of other great melons out there, as well. Melons are not great for baking ... Read More »

It is addictive – and might be even more addictive than the peanut butter cup candies that ... Read More »

Orange Yogurt Creamsicles

Orange Yogurt Creamsicles

The creamsicles I ate as a kid were orange-flavored popsicles filled with a vanilla ice cream. When you bit into the popsicle, you got a nice blend of orange and cream that is what everyone associates with a creamsicle. These popsicles are ones that I rarely buy these days, but I also rarely make them at home, even though I make other popsicles regularly. They ... Read More »

Chocolate Ricotta Icebox Cake

Chocolate Ricotta Icebox Cake

An icebox cake gets its name from the fact that this is not a cake that is baked, but one that sets up in the refrigerator – a.k.a. the icebox, hence the name. The cakes are usually made with a mousse-like mixture that is stacked with layers of crisp cookies, like chocolate wafer cookies or graham crackers, and left to setup and meld together in ...
