Toasted Coconut Ice Cream and Wok Wednesday Dumplings

Okay, stop the presses. Did you know there’s thing called Wok Wednesdays now? Yep…#WokWednesday.  To follow #TacoTuesday, which follows #MeatlessMonday. I really need to invent a day. Like #3OldPicklesAndCheesestickThursday, which, in our house, could literally be just about everyday, because I am the laziest dinner-maker I know.  I’m not sure what Rust must think of […]

Cookies and Cream Chocolate Milkshake

I have a skinny kid. I am NOT a skinny kid. However, I am hovering in the 40 year old mark, and both my growing kiddo and I need calcium.  It’s true.  We all need it, if we want healthy bones. I’m going to tell you a secret. I thought that crap I used to […]

Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

That kind of sounds like a stutter, doesn’t it? Chocolate Mint Chocolate Ice Cream. Why the double Chocolate? Well, that’s because I have Chocolate Mint. Did you know there is such a thing? There is! It’s mint, it has a brownish tinge to the edges, and it smells and tastes vaguely of cocoa. Strangest thing, […]

Chocolate Covered Bacon Dulce de Leche Rum Shake

Did you read the title?  That’s a lot of words.  But how do you leave any of them out? A Rum Shake.  But not as thick as a milkshake, just…creamy. Smooth.  Rich and delicious.  Vanilla ice cream blended with Captain Morgan’s White Rum, sweet Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, creamy dulce de leche…and bacon. Yep…bacon. You see, […]

Strawberry Peach Gelato

For the past few years, I’ve been making pink foods along with KitchenAid, in an effort to increase breast cancer awareness and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  KitchenAid is a huge supporter of the foundation, and it’s something that touches so many of us. So of course, when the note came in again this year […]

Yasso Greek Frozen Yogurt Bars…and a Giveaway!

Last week I got to have a little bit of fun with friends and family, courtesy of Yasso.  A party, with lots of food and frozen yogurt pops?  And MY crazy family? Sign me up. I love the fact that as a blogger I am encouraged to try new and different products.  Usually I will […]

Ice Cream Scones…A KitchenAid Challenge

I am here today to blow your mind. Not kidding. Mind. Blowing. Experience. You see, a couple of weeks ago, a video crew from LA flew here to my house (yes really!) to film me in my kitchen. Why, you ask? Well, you see, KitchenAid challenged me to come up with a fall baking recipe. […]

Mini S’mores Ice Cream Cakes…from Big Bear’s Wife

It’s Thursday! Do you know what that means? It means I am tired as hell because I got up at 3am in order to make my butt-crack-of-dawn flight to Chicago today.  THAT’S what it means.  And, knowing me, I didn’t even sleep at all Wednesday night, for fear of oversleeping, so…I will likely change into […]

National Moscato Day…Strawberry Pink Moscato Sorbet

Being a food blogger is good stuff sometimes. Like last week, when I was invited to the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills for an amazing lunch, and sat mere feet away from Harry Connick, Jr.  Or like last year, when I became friends with Duff Goldman, and he offered to write the foreword to my […]
