ice cream sandwich cake

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 …

Almond Milk Chocolate Pudding

almond milk chocolat pudding

We’re not milk drinkers, but I buy it anyway for recipes and the occasional bowl of cereal.   Inevitably, it goes sour and I end up having to throw out half a carton. That is, until now. Thanks to a dollar off coupon and a tip from my mother saying it wasn’t as strange as it […]

After making a full batch of the William Greenberg recipe aka New York Brownies and wondering what the heck I was going to do with them, I decided to mix them into cheesecake flavored ice cream and make a copy cat of one of Fuzz’s favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors. For the base, I adapted […]

We celebrated Michelangelo’s birthday yesterday by having tiramisu for dessert. But rather than the tiramisu I usually make, White Russian Tiramisu from Cooking Light, I tried a slightly richer version from Gourmet. All in all, we liked it, though it did need a good 6 hour chill to firm up and develop. The original amount […]

Mint Ice Cream with Chocolate Chunks

As promised, here is the link to the Super Simple Homemade Ice Cream we made at Smucker’s. You don’t need an ice cream maker to make it and it calls for very few ingredients, so I’d say it lives up to its name! The basic recipe is for vanilla, but using the tricks I …

Malted Strawberry Angel Bavarian

strawberry bavarian

Today’s dessert was inspired by the Angel Strawberry Bavarian I found on the Duncan Hines website. It’s an angel food cake  broken up and suspended in a matrix of strawberry flavored cream, and I say “inspired” because while I’d intended to make the actual recipe, I ran into a few obstacles. The recipe starts with […]
