Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

chocolate and vanilla ice cream sandwiches

 I had a good time with the two-tone milkshakes that I made last week and decided to use the same effect to make these ice cream sandwiches. And by this, I mean that I made them with half vanilla filling and half chocolate. Ice cream sandwiches are really simple to make because you don’t have to actually make anything in order to make them. You ... Read More »

Rice Pudding Ice Cream

I know that I’ve been doing a lot of ice cream posts lately, but with the temperatures getting to over 100F on a regular basis here over the last month, it’s hard not to want a lot of cold food. Besides, I tend to make small batches of ice creams – not to mention that Sarah’s chosen theme for this month’s Sugar High Friday was ... Read More »

Intense Chocolate Gelato

Intense chocolate gelato

Gelato is Italian ice cream. While in composition it is not that different from other frozen treats, there are a couple of things that set it apart from a standard ice cream. First, it is generally made with more milk milk than heavy cream. Some recipes use all milk, as this one does, and others use just a touch of cream. I’ve had many shopkeepers ... Read More »

Banana Buttermilk Ice Cream

I have a feeling that I am going to be making a lot of ice cream/sorbet/frozen yogurt this summer. For the past five weeks or so, it has regularly been over 100F in my neighborhood. Granted – that’s not completely unusual for the summers out here, but it’s still pretty hot. I don’t mind the heat, though, and I certainly don’t mind more opportunities to ... Read More »

Vegan Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

This month’s food meme mashup of IMBB27 and SHF20 is hosted by Reid, of the inimitable Ono Kine Grindz, everyone’s favorite Hawaiian food blog. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, allow me to clarify. Every month, many food bloggers participate in the food blogging events Is My Blog Burning? (IMBB) and Sugar High Friday (SHF), which usually occur independently, but happen to both ... Read More »

Buttermilk Sorbet

The only reason that this is called “sorbet” and not “ice cream” is the fact that there is no cream in it. Don’t let the name fool you, though, because it is still as cold and satisfying as ice cream, while having the unique flavor profile of buttermilk. When I first saw the recipe in this month’s issue of Cooking Light, I knew that I ... Read More »

Vanilla Pudding Pops

When summer hits, there is nothing better tha a cold, sweet treat to help cool you down. I wasn’t picky and would take most fruit flavored popsicles (except grape), but pudding pops were always my top choice. Much to the delight of basically everyone else I can in contact with, including my family, I only ever liked the vanilla ones and no one ever had ... Read More »

Cheater’s Frozen Yogurt

This is much less of a recipe than it is an idea. It is, however, an idea that I use all the time. It’s the perfect thing when I want a really quick and easy snack or a light dessert. It is particularly practical during the summer, since it is so simple and much lighter than any ice cream. What am I taking about? It’s ... Read More »
