Boozy Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Float

I have an embarrassing confession to make. I hate traveling. Okay, so maybe not traveling so much as flying. Full disclosure: I find airplanes to be downright terrifying. Sure, long car trips can be tedious, and statistically, are much more dangerous than traveling by plane, but as I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, I’m not…

Mango Ginger Ice Cream with Fresh Mint Syrup

Throughout the course of my blogwork here on ITSF, I’ve made frequent mention of my general disdain and long-standing resentment for fruit-centric desserts. My primary reasons for this particular position are as follows: 1) My love for chocolate trumps all things, except for the obvious must-haves like family, friends, and guinea pig memes. 2) My brain simply…

Dairy Free Dark Chocolate Rocky Road Ice Cream

Once in a while, as I mindlessly go about my business living life in an ice cream induced stupor, I’ll stumble across one of those poor unfortunate souls who, for whatever reason, is forced to abstain from the supreme influence and indescribable magic of dairy products. These conversations become especially poignant when framed within the…

Nutella Bread Pudding Ice Cream

Dear Blog, I’ve missed you. More than I could ever put into words. And it’s all my fault. I never write, I never call. Simply put, I’ve neglected you. And for what? Netflix? Oreos? Laziness? It’s despicable. Reprehensible, even. I’ve taken you for granted, Blog, and I can’t tell you how sorry I am. You deserve better. I know…

Vodka Spiked Frozen Hot Chocolate

So what’s a girl to do when it’s 0 degrees outside and there’s nothing but snow and ice in the forecast for days and days to come? Why, she should make a boozy, chocolate-y, whipped creamy, frozen concoction, of course! Sure, I realize that frozen hot chocolate already had its Big Moment years and years…

Banana Stracciatella Gelato

So, we’re only 25 days into the New Year and my “be fun and try something different” initiative for 2015 is already giving me fits. In the spirit of being bold and taking risks, I decided to try my hand at gelato this week, which much like frozen yogurt, is something that I previously knew…

Salted Honey Frozen Yogurt with Candied Walnuts

Happy 2015, everyone! I hope you all had a safe and wonderful holiday and that your new year is off to a great start so far! As much as I’ve been looking forward to this post, the very first of 2015, I’ve also been avoiding it just a teeny tiny little bit. Yes, there’s the whole…

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark Ice Cream

There isn’t much I can say about the chocolate/peppermint combo that hasn’t already been said before. But don’t worry; I won’t let that stop me. We can’t all be leaders. (And sometimes, it pays to be a follower, especially when the topic at hand is this delicious.) As the weeks fly by and the days…

Brown Butter Gingerbread Swirl Ice Cream

Gingerbread cookies and I have somewhat of a sordid and complicated past. After an intense love affair that lasted until the age of 6, my affections for gingerbread calmed significantly as I yearned to explore other, more exciting Christmas cookie options. Peanut butter blossoms stole my heart for years and years, only to be replaced…

White Russian Ice Cream

IT’S ALMOST TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!! And I’m just a little bit excited. (Can you tell?!) Although we normally wait until post-Thanksgiving to start breaking out the Christmas decorations, this year my better half and I decided to get a head start on the holiday season and are happy to announce that our home is fully decked…

Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae Bars

Despite its unfortunate proximity to Monday, Sunday is one of my very favorite days of the week (after Friday and Saturday, of course). My fondness for Sundays grows particularly strong in the fall and winter months, when cold weather and football give us legitimate reasons to spend afternoons lounging on the couch, snacking, and sipping…

Salted Pecan Praline Sundae Sauce

It’s a chilly, blustery November day here in Northeastern Ohio, and things really couldn’t be any better. Lebron’s back home, Christmas Ale has officially arrived at a store near you, and pumpkin-spice-everything is slowly vacating center stage to make room for its wintery cousin, peppermint mocha. The holiday season is upon us, my friends! And,…
