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 […]

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, […]

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 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 […]

chocolate brownie chunk cheesecake ice cream

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 […]
