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…)

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…)

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…)

Raspberry Ice Cream Parfait

I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF
on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Loacker products to facilitate my post, but my opinion and creative content are my own.

Summer desserts this year are about two things here: ice cream and fruit. Know why? Ice cream, even the homemade kind, is relatively effortless, and there is so much amazing fruit in season! As much as I love to cook, I also love being present and available for making summer memories. Spring and summer are also when we eat the most fresh berries because that’s when they taste best.

Longer evenings lend themselves to indulging in more dessert after dinner, and berries (or ice cream) make an easy treat. But sometimes it’s fun to dress things up a little. This raspberry ice cream parfait is a perfect way to serve a beautiful no bake summer dessert and celebrate the flavors of the season.  (more…)

I rediscovered goat’s milk this summer, darlings. We can thank brunch at a local diner, actually. The Godfather and I were waiting in line for our table, and a poster on the wall had an ad for the restaurant’s goat cheese cheesecake. I told the Godfather I was going to make some and add caramel. He rolled his eyes a little since he only likes goat cheese in warm savory dishes, but when I get a certain look, he knows I’m going to make what I want anyway. I haven’t made the cheesecake. In case y’all haven’t noticed, it’s about a million degrees outside and just getting hotter. But the siren song of goat-based dairy called to me, and I ordered some goat’s milk from my milk farmer.
