Berry Cheesecake Ice Pops with Buttery Graham Crumbles

With America’s birthday just around the corner, I figured I’d celebrate on the blog in my own little way with a food group that’s equally as aspirational as good ol’ Independence Day herself: Popsicles. Much like our sacred national holiday, popsicles (or ice pops, to get technical), can go terribly wrong when the necessary precautionary…

No Churn Mudslide Cookie Swirl Ice Cream

For those of you that have followed this blog since the beginning (hi, Mom!), you’re well aware that I have a long and complicated history with alcoholic beverages… …the complicated part being that I’m generally a one-and-done (or if we’re being really honest, half-of-one-and-done) kind of gal. As strange and counter-intuitive as it may sound,…

Dark Chocolate Chunk Guinness Ice Cream Sandwiches

7 years ago, at the tender age of 23, I fell in love with an Irishman. (Or at least, someone whom I thought was an Irishman). All the telltale signs were there: red hair, red beard, very Irish-sounding last name, above-average ability to recall Irish proverbs, and most importantly, could drink me under the table…

Blueberry Pancake Cereal Milk Milkshake

Growing up, we never had any “fun” cereal around the house (much to my extreme chagrin and utter disappointment). We had things like Raisin Bran and Mini Wheats and on very rare occasion, Apple Jacks – which don’t get me wrong, are all fine and dandy and things that I enjoy very much in my…

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…
