The combination of toasted marshmallows, crispy graham crackers and melting chocolate is what makes s’mores a beloved summertime treat of so many.

Homemade Fudgsicles

Homemade Fudgsicles

Fudgsicles were one of my favorite summertime treats as a child. They are chocolate popsicles, with a great chocolate flavor to them. I’ve seen lots of recipes for Fudgsicles over the years and have noticed that, in spite of their names, none of them are really quite like the original Fudgsicles. Oh, they’re all very chocolaty, but many recipes call for lots of cream or ... Read More »

Vanilla Sour Cream Ice Cream

There are lots of great ice creams out there, but, as is the case with so many foods, there is something a little extra special about making your own ice cream at home.
