Slow Cooker Chocolate Pudding Cake

Our family recently discovered Graeter’s, an ice cream from Ohio that is now being sold by the pint at our local grocery store. Given all the competition on the ice cream aisle plus my loyalty to Blue Bell, it took me a while to give Graeter’s a second look, but I’d read an interview with […]

After baking dozens of cookies, I needed a change of pace and decided to try a Cafe au Lait Ice Cream recipe I found on the Folgers website.

As for the limited edition Oreo flavors, you just never know where you’ll find them. I stumbled […]

Here’s a little something I made for Todd this weekend. It’s a frozen grasshopper pie layered between two rows of ice cream sandwiches and coated in sweetened whipped cream. Unlike the last ice cream sandwich cake, this one is made in a square pan and has a little bit more filling. It’s also incredibly easy, […]

hazelnut joy ice cream

Would you believe this rich, creamy, chocolate ice cream is made with only three ingredients? Okay, four if you count the fact I made one tiny addition. But the original recipe is comprised of JIF Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Spread, Cream of Coconut, and half-and-half. I found the recipe on JIF’s website (while …
