Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you are what you eat, we are currently part margarita (although I think we’re permanently part Margarita ), part zucchini, part peach, and part ice cream sandwich. We’ve been making ice cream sandwiches as a fun way to cool down at the end of the 100+ degree days. The possibilities for homemade ice cream [...]

Margarita Popsicles

I’ve never been much of a frozen drink girl but I think I’ve been missing out. It’s seventh-circle-of-hell hot outside. We’ve been enjoying lots of frozen cantaloupe and pineapple margaritas recently but we decided to take it one step further: Margarita Popsicles. They couldn’t be easier! I whipped up a modified batch of our house [...]

Olive Oil & Meyer Lemon Ice Cream

I recently attended Texas Olive Harvest at Central Market, a cooking demonstration highlighting olive oils from the Texas Olive Ranch, the only olive oil producer in Texas that puts out 100% Texas-grown olive oil. We’ve been using their olive oil for a couple of months and love it. Texas has thrown its hat into the [...]

Strawberry-Sour Cream Ice Cream

A couple of weeks ago, we made the drive over to Froberg’s Farm in Alvin to pick strawberries. I told myself on the way over there I wouldn’t get carried away and come home with something crazy like 8 lbs of strawberries. We can always go back when we run out, after all. But when [...]

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

The cool thing about having a well-stocked pantry is that I can make most anything we crave on a whim. We’re not big candy eaters. I don’t believe that you can classify a road trip as a real roadie without a bag of peanut M&Ms (and Funyuns!) but other than the usual Reese’s Peanut Butter [...]

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Two of the best things about spring in Texas: it’s warm enough for ice cream and wildflowers. The Bluebonnets are out despite the ridiculous drought. And if you can find a patch of flowers that’s bigger than a square foot near town, you can bet you’ll find a family making a beeline for the ‘bonnets [...]

White Chocolate-Habanero Ice Cream

My husband and I love spicy foods. We love making spicy foods even spicier but we’re not into the it-must-hurt-to-be-good spicy foods. Those foods suck. For days. There are few dishes that don’t benefit from the heat of a splash of Tobasco or a handful of chopped, fresh serranos. I don’t think ice cream necessarily [...]
