key lime mousse cake

After having dinner at a steakhouse last week, we decided to share dessert. Todd wanted Key lime pie and I wanted cheesecake.  Fuzz’s job was to break the tie, but since she was indifferent we settled on cheesecake so long as I promised to make a Key lime pie later in the week. This dessert […]

Lemon Lush

It’s starting to feel like Spring around here, so how about a nice lemony dessert? Er, sort of. This dessert doesn’t contain any actual lemons, but rather a box of instant lemon pudding, Cool Whip and cream cheese. In other words, it’s Todd’s favorite type of dessert. The recipe is called Lemon Lush and the […]

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. While it appeared perfectly fine as written, I modified it a bit by incorporating fudge sauce and pecans and by using an ice cream maker to speed things up. […]

This ice cream was the result of our finally finding the coveted Gingerbread Oreos. After taste testing them with the family, the goal was to chop them up and put them in something.  The ice cream was perfect! As for the limited edition Oreo flavors, you just never know where you’ll find them. I stumbled […]

ice cream pie

If you’re still looking for ways to use Halloween candy, here’s a pie to consider. Because they blend well with ice cream and because Fuzz brought home a ton, I used Butterfingers; but just about any type of candy bar would work, and the ice cream flavor can be modified as well. What I like […]
