Pumpkin Spice Latte Ice Cream

Why, hello there, September! I can’t believe you’re here already. Wait, what? You’ve been here for two weeks already, you say? Oh dear. I guess time flies when you’re being lazy – a lazy blogger, that is. I must admit that I’ve been suffering from a bit of writer’s block the past few weeks, but…

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Ice Cream

I have an embarrassing confession to share with you. Last weekend I was having an intense Oreo craving, no doubt the product of a Friday night spent looking up “delicious Oreo desserts” on Pinterest. So, the next morning I ventured to the grocery store and bought a nice big pack of Double Stuf, my heart…

Mint Chocolate Chip and Happy Birthday Blog

  You guys! A few exciting announcements for you today…. First of all, it’s National Ice Cream Day, which means it’s time to celebrate by stuffing as much ice cream into your face as possible. (Which admittedly is something that I tend to do every day…but at least on this particular day I have a somewhat…

Clementine Sherbet

Growing up, I always loved the name “Clementine.” I loved it so much, in fact, that sometimes I would daydream about what life might be like had Clementine been my birth name… Would I be a working professional? Probably not. Obviously, I’d be far too busy sipping peppermint tea on the front porch of the…

Triple Chocolate Donuts

Sometimes, you just really need to eat a donut. Or, if you’re like me, you just really need to eat/bake/smell/admire/take pictures of/blog about/profess love for donuts. Do you remember a few months ago when I made those baked lemon donuts, and announced my unconditional love for my brand new donut pan? You might also remember that I made…

Key Lime Pie Ice Pops

You guys!   I’ve missed you. I took a brief hiatus from Ice Cream Dreamland to focus on some grown-up things, like finishing grad school (yay!), planning a wedding (double yay!) and trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet (yuck). Also… I had a birthday. Hello, 27! It’s nice to meet you….

Meyer Lemon Pie Ice Cream

For a long time, lemon-flavored desserts fell onto my “Foods You Probably Won’t Appreciate ‘Til You’re Much Older” list, somewhere in between oat bran muffins and roasted beet salads. A chocoholic all my life, I’ve always had an extreme disinterest, even disdain, for fruit-centric desserts. Pies, tarts, cakes, you name it – if it had…

Guinness Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Happy St. Patty’s Day weekend! I hope you are all having a fabulous time embracing your inner Irishman/woman with plenty of corned beef, whiskey, and artificially green food items. After a brief stint this week with one of those wretched “cleanse” diets (and by stint I mean approximately 5.5 hours), I decided that I’m a…

Baked Lemon Donuts

  I love donuts. I always have, and always will. Glazed, cake, cream-filled, or plain – I don’t discriminate. I love them all. You know what else I love? Kitchen gadgets. I have cupboards and cupboards full of kitchen gadgets – mini treat makers, specialty pans, novelty food creators, and both major and minor appliances….

Faux Fried Ice Cream Balls with a Trio of Dipping Sauces

Happy Super Bowl Sundae! (See what I did there?) Today is one of my very favorite days of the year – not so much for the football, but more so for the mounds upon mounds of delicious, deep-fried, cheese-covered finger foods that typically invade American households to help us celebrate the most important sporting event…

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

I’m not a huge fan of New Year’s resolutions. Don’t get me wrong; I’m all for fresh starts and healthy optimism, the idea that building roadmaps for our yearly aspirations can help us become newer/better/ nicer/healthier/(insert desired result here) people. However, what seems to happen with most of my resolutions is that, despite my best…
