Coffee caramel ice cream pie combines all your favorite coffee shop flavors in one easy no-bake dessert.
Earlier this summer, I stocked our freezer with ice cream (homemade and not) in preparation for a hot summer. Did we get a crazy hot summer? No. So what is a girl to do with all this ice cream? Make pie, naturally. Pies are a very classic summer and fall dessert, but I know no one wants to turn on the oven in the summer unless you really have to. Ice cream pie solves this. You can have your (no-bake) pie and eat it too. 😉 (more…)
I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Amazon products to facilitate my post, but my opinion and creative content are my own.
I never thought this margarita was going to make it to the blog, because it’s been on my list 3 years now. 3 years! Isn’t that wild? Finding the correct ratios to get the drink just right with easily sourced ingredients was a challenge. This spicy guava margarita needed to be right though. I wanted to recreate a drink I had on one of my last outings with friends in California. (more…)
The Strawberry Capistrano is a refreshing, non-dairy, non-alcoholic drink. The natural bright pink hue from the strawberries makes this summer mocktail irresistible!
I feel like summer is just starting… right as my e-mail inbox is assaulted with fall and all things pumpkin spice. I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet, even though I have already marked my calendar with the openings of the local farm fall festivals. That doesn’t happen until mid-September though, so let’s just enjoy the last few weeks of summer, shall we? I’ll start by making us a Strawberry Capistrano. (more…)
Goat cheese cheesecake ice cream is a decadent, not too sweet, warm weather treat!
Darlings, I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to make goat cheese ice cream. It’s amazing, and so so much easier than classic churned ice cream recipes. Imagine making an ice cream base in your food processor or blender, churning, and freezing. There is no required chilling time before the churn. That is a Big Deal. Because summer is not the time for waiting forever for dessert. (more…)
Flourless Black Forest Cake is a gluten free treat inspired by in-season cherries and classic Black Forest Cake.
I forget about flourless chocolate cake. Tucked at the bottom of most dessert menus as a token “gluten free” option, I think it’s easy to assume flourless chocolate cake isn’t as “exciting” as less familiar items with longer names. Until, of course, we want something rich, unapologetically chocolate, and so decadent it’s best for sharing. Then, we remember, and wonder why we forgot in the first place. And then it’s cherry season and we have to do something about that too, so why not combine cherries and chocolate? (more…)
