Ice Cream

Lavender Honey Ice Cream

Lavender Honey Ice Cream

Lavender honey ice is the perfect complement to a blackberry thyme crostata. There’s definitely a floral essence to the ice cream, but it’s not overwhelming. The flavor is beautiful in it’s simplicity, and it sure is a nice change of pace from your standard vanillas, chocolates, and strawberries. Even though it is simple and pairs…

Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Blueberry Sauce

Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Blueberry Sauce

There’s a local ice cream shop called Coolhaus that creates really unique ice cream flavors including fried chicken and waffles (which we have tasted) to “Netflix” ice cream which consists of a white cheddar popcorn base and Doritos (we haven’t tried it). Not all of their flavors are quite that crazy, and you can even…

Cannoli Ice Cream

Cannoli Ice Cream

Awhile back we bought a mozzarella and ricotta cheese making kit from Williams-Sonoma. It’s been sitting in the cabinet, but we finally made our own homemade cheese. I read mozzarella was more difficult, so for our first go around we made ricotta. We needed some uses for ricotta, both sweet (brioche toast with ricotta and nectarine…

Roasted Banana Pudding Ice Cream

Roasted Banana Pudding Ice Cream

I absolutely love banana pudding, and I really wanted to combine that dessert with ice cream. Turning banana pudding into a frozen dessert with crunchy Nilla wafers quite possibly makes it even more delicious than the original dessert. This picture may not look like much, but I promise you, this is anything but basic and simple.…

Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Dustin may not remember complaining that he didn’t get to try any of my cookie dough ice cream last summer when he was out of town, but he did. So to make up for this “injustice,” I made a batch of very similar ice cream (mentioned previously here), except instead of regular chocolate chip cookie…

Fresh Mint Ice Cream with Brownie Chunks

Fresh Mint Ice Cream with Brownie Chunks

There’s a gourmet ice cream shop near us with the most amazing fresh mint chip ice cream. We’ve tried several of their other flavors, which are also delicious, but that fresh mint chip ice cream takes the cake. They also serve freshly made chocolate waffle cones. A couple of scoops of their fresh mint chip…

Olive Oil Ice Cream

Olive Oil Ice Cream

One of the first restaurants we tried out here in LA was Pizzeria Mozza where we stuffed our faces with rictotta-stuffed fried squash blossoms, pizza, pizza, and more pizza, and finally their butterscotch budino and a scoop of olive oil ice cream. As delicious as everything was, the olive oil ice cream was our favorite part,…

Reverse Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream

Reverse Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream

This ice cream is so simple, yet has quickly become one of our favorites. The idea behind this ice cream was to make cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream but in reverse, so using chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla ice cream and Golden Oreos instead of traditional chocolate ones. We can’t quite place our finger…

Strawberry Basil Ice Cream with Golden Oreos

Strawberry Basil Ice Cream with Golden Oreos

The best way to end a long, warm day is with a big bowl of ice cream. The combination of strawberry and basil is a popular one, and I haven’t really ever experimented with it. Until now. This ice cream has been a godsend after some incredibly brutal days. First you steep basil in milk…

Milk Chocolate Guinness Ice Cream

Milk Chocolate Guinness Ice Cream

In addition to celebrating St. Patty’s Day with Bailey’s cheesecake bars, I also made Guinness ice cream. It’s amazing how much I despise beer, but how much I love things made with with beer. The milk chocolate softens the flavor of the Guinness into a perfect, made-in-heaven match. It was unseasonably warm (hotter than it…
