Milk Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

Milk Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

It’s fall and I should be writing about apples and pumpkins and soups. It’s finally cool, and I will cook and write about some of these things soon, I promise. But in the meantime, let’s talk ice cream. I have no particular season for ice […]

Date Shake

Date Shake

Recently Smitten Kitchen wrote about the Palm Springs Date Shake. I’d never heard of a date shake before, but I have a bag of dates in my pantry that I never use, and I (suppose I’ll admit that I) always have two or three kinds […]

Blueberry Crisp Ice Cream

Blueberry Crisp Ice Cream

I’ve given up dairy for the past few weeks, cutting all butter and milk from my cooking and my diet. It’s more than just not eating obvious foods like butter and cheese and milk and ice cream, though. Milk is an ingredient in so many […]

Roasted Banana Ice Cream

Roasted Banana Ice Cream

A while back when it was cooler and I was running every other day, I decided that I wanted to prevent leg cramps by increasing my potassium intake through eating banana ice cream. Right after I made Roasted Banana Ice Cream (from David Lebovitz’s The Perfect […]

Anise Ice Cream

Anise Ice Cream

At the moment, I have 3 different sorbets in the freezer, with plans to make yet another ice cream this week. This is timely, because although today’s high in St. Louis was 63, Tuesday’s high is forecast to be 90! I’m already planning out light […]

Aztec Hot Chocolate Ice Cream

Aztec Hot Chocolate Ice Cream
