No-Churn Cinnamon Roll Ice Cream

Today, on this most romantic of holidays, on an occasion when we owe it to the ones we love to tell them just how much they mean to us, I’d like to take a moment to proclaim my undying devotion for my one and only, my tried and true. A constant source of support and…

Pumpkin Pecan Ice Cream Pie with Salted Bourbon Caramel

Critical lessons that were learned during the making of this week’s post: 1) Patience is a virtue and unfortunately, I have none. 2) Hissy fits in the middle of the kitchen when things don’t go your way are most definitely a thing, even when you’re 30 and theoretically “know better” 3) My piping skills remain…

Mint Chocolate Chip Affogato

Like most of my self-important creative endeavors, today’s post began in the typical fashion – with overwhelming anxiety accompanied by healthy doses of insecurity and skepticism. As I embarked on what is about to be the FOURTH anniversary post for my humble little blog, I was daunted by the task in front of me. If…

Honey Butter Ice Cream with Sticky Bun Swirls

If you’ve spent any amount of time following this blog over the years, it probably hasn’t been too terribly difficult to ascertain the three general truths of my existence: I love ice cream I’m mildly to moderately dramatic I have an absolute and unwavering adoration for Akron, Ohio (a.k.a. the best city ever in existence) My love…

Nut Dip Ice Cream with Spicy Caramel Sauce

There are few occasions in life more nerve wracking than meeting your boyfriend’s parents mother for the very first time. Luckily for me, my boyfriend eventually became my husband, so my now mother-in-law is stuck with me indefinitely (whether she likes it or not!). But little did she know that that first meeting (as well…

S’mores Ice Cream with Graham Cracker Cones

On its surface, this might look like just another standard run-of-the-mill If the Spoon Fits post. And certainly, it has all the elements: dark, messy photography, Millennial self-importance, mild to moderate senseless rambling, and of course, an overly complex and ingredient-heavy ice cream recipe. But dig a little more deeply, and what you’ll find is…

Buttermilk Peach Crumble Ice Cream

I don’t know if it’s out of boredom, or old age, or an unrelenting pursuit of gluttony, but lately I’ve grown to absolutely love certain foods that up until recently, never quite tickled my fancy. Things like blueberries. And pie. And blueberry pie. …And crumbles. And cobblers. And crisps. (Oh my!) Really, I’ve grown to love any and all…

Mint Chocolate Chip Grasshopper Brownie Milkshakes

It’s that time again, my friends. Time for mint chocolate chip disasters, endless self-loathing, and massive emotional breakdowns. Time for blog posts gone wrong, unreasonable hostility, and good old-fashioned hissy fits. You guessed it – it’s time for another If the Spoon Fits birthday celebration! My little blog turned THREE this month (can you believe…

Triple Blueberry Ice Cream Floats

As someone with a mild to moderate yet completely unreasonable and sometimes overwhelming case of anxiety, the act of taking a vacation is often more of a challenge for me than an opportunity. And no, I don’t mean that in the sense that I just love working so much and have such blinding ambition and…

Wine and Gold Sorbet

There isn’t much that I can say about Cleveland, or LeBron James, or Northeastern Ohio, or our beloved basketball team that hasn’t already been said before by someone much more qualified than I am to craft a narrative about the impact of a sports team on its city. But luckily for me, bloggers don’t need…

Caramelized White Chocolate Ice Cream with Toasted Almonds

Why, hello there, gorgeous! Allow me to introduce myself – I’m the ice cream blogger who fell off the face of the earth for a few months in favor of pursuing more trivial matters, but now who is back and (hopefully) better than ever, daring to believe that her old friends will welcome her back with…
