Fresh Strawberry Mini Cupcakes

Fresh Strawberry Mini Cupcakes

When strawberries are in season and my local farmers markets are overflowing with them, I can’t resist taking home basket after basket. The problem with this is that I can end up with almost more berries than I know what to do with! Fortunately, I haven’t quite run out of ways to use strawberries yet, and these Fresh Strawberry Mini Cupcakes are my current favorite ... Read More »

Tovolo Twin Pop Molds

Tovolo Twin Pops

The jingle of the ice cream truck would bring me and all of my friends running when we were kids playing in the park after school. They always had something new and exciting that looked good, and some kids would go for that. I liked the new and exciting things, too, but often stuck with a few treats that were my favorites and twin pops ... Read More »

Cuisipro Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Presses

Cuisipro Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Presses

An ice cream sandwich is a delightful hot weather treat, and they’re even more enjoyable when you can put together your own. This doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to bake your cookies and churn your ice cream from scratch (although that is always a good option).

Zucchini is one of those summertime vegetables that never seems to run out of steam. I really have to wait until the weather starts to change before the friends who have been handing me piles of the stuff all summer long finally begin to slow down. I’m not complaining, mind you (although I have stopped planting the stuff in my own garden), because I am ... Read More »

How to make ice cream with dry ice

Dry Ice Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream is a wonderful treat, but you really do need an ice cream maker for the best and most consistent results. There are many affordable ice cream makers out there (and plenty of more expensive ones!) that will pay for themselves if you make ice cream yourself regularly. If you don’t make ice cream on a regular basis, however, you probably don’t want ... Read More »

Strawberry Watermelon Agua Fresca

Strawberry Watermelon Agua Fresca

Agua fresca is a fresh fruit-based drink that is very popular in Mexico. They’re typically made by mashing or pureeing fruit such as strawberries or melon and then thinning the mixture out with juice or water until it has a light, drinkable consistency and is easy to sip through a straw.
