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, […]

Cool Recipes for Summer

Summer. Is. Here. It’s about to get sooo hot here in Virginia.  The humidity y’all.  it was 77 today, and I could barely breathe.  Seriously.  The temps aren’t even up there yet – not in the 90s.  Yet, it’s coming. It’s COMING. Soon, the kids will be out of school, and I will be working […]

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 […]

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. […]

Strawberry Lemonade Frozen Yogurt Pops

Today’s post is another one of those “Lucky Day” opportunities I get from time to time.  Not too long ago, in the midst of a heat wave,  I was contacted by Yoplait to create a new recipe using their Frozen Yogurt. Yoplait wanted to PAY ME to eat frozen yogurt, in the heat.  Lots of […]

Teaser: Yogurt Lemon Pie Pops

Yeah, yeah…I’m still away.  And with that, let me just say something. I think weird things follow me. Be it people, diseases, people, strange weather, or people. They follow me. But right now, I want to talk about weather. At home, out of the blue, it was a ridiculous 100 degrees for a few days. […]
