Margarita Ice Cream

Margarita Ice Cream

Adults Only Dessert

Posted on May 02, 2017
It’s Cinco de Mayo again and you will need something fun and fresh to share with your friends and family for dessert. This Margarita Ice Cream is fantastic, not too sweet, and even gluten free! This recipe tastes just like a Margarita! The lime flavor isn’t as crazy-sour as you think it would be, and the tequila doesn’t overpower. This recipe is easy to make and doesn’t require churning. Serve it off of the Napoleon Himalayan Salt Platter Set for a really authentic Margarita taste. It adds that counterpoint to the sweetness and creates the perfect Margarita flavor. (A real Margarita snob told me this!)

To make smoked ice cream, you need to start with smoked cream. It’s surprisingly simple, and has a subtle flavor that complements salty and savory tastes. Smoked Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with Candied Bacon and Caramel is a mouthful in more ways than one. It’s the perfect treat to turn into an ice cream sundae on National Sundae Day. This easy, no churn, ice cream recipe may just make it to the top of your favorite dessert list.

No Churn Coffee Ice Cream

No Churn Coffee Ice Cream

with Chocolate Coffee Ganache

Posted on June 23, 2016
No Churn Coffee Ice Cream with Chocolate Coffee Ganache is the kind of caffeinated sweet treat that will perk you up on a hot day in more ways than one. I was making homemade ice cream for a friend one day. While sipping my coffee and whipping the cream for the recipe it hit me. I should make coffee ice cream too! I had all of the ingredients to do it, so why not? I brewed up a fresh cup, using it to help melt the chocolate for the ganache. I added chocolate covered coffee beans to the recipe too. This has to be my favorite homemade ice cream so far. It may very well be yours too.

Strawberry Quesadillas

Strawberry Quesadillas

With Cheesecake Ice Cream

Posted on June 30, 2015
It's strawberry season. I guess that's my favorite holiday. YES, it should be a holiday. And there should be a holiday dedicated to bacon, and one for cheesecake too. But I digress. These Strawberry Quesadillas With Cheesecake Ice Cream are insane. And by insane, we have blow-your-mind, melt your brain, oh my gosh that's delicious, and what the heck was she thinking all wrapped up in a delicious tortilla, then tossed on the grill with fresh chocolate STUFF (somewhere between a sauce, and a ganache and a chocolate shell), and all of the strawberries. Oh yeah, then we topped it with HOMEMADE cheesecake ice cream.

Grilled Peach Ice Cream

Grilled Peaches In Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream

Posted on July 31, 2014

It's peach season, it's summer, it's hot. Why not get the best out of the seasonal produce and beat the heat with Grilled Peach Ice Cream! No I didn't grill the ice cream, I grilled the peaches and put them into the ice cream. This dessert is kid friendly and super easy to make. It was creamy and smoky and sweet. 

I guess I should explain the asterisks on the time it takes to make the Grilled Peach Ice Cream. It really doesn't take long, but the freezing time is where it gets you. I don't exactly have a place to put that. But basically you have to wait, impossibly hard because it smells and tastes so good, for the ice cream to set for at least 2 hours in the freezer.
