Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Ice Cream

It was a hot weekend, and David wanted to make ice cream. I didn’t tell him that after we make the ice cream we would have to freeze it and not be able to eat it right away until it was too late. But he wasn’t too mad at me, because we conceived a pretty awesome ice cream flavor: chocolate hazelnut banana. We used an existing chocolate ice cream recipe and added our awesome twist!

Rhubarb ‘Big Crumb’ Coffee Cake

Don’t forget to enter our giveaway!

I wanted to post this recipe before the rhubarb season escapes us. It’s pretty late now, but it’s still findable in small quantities, and really that’s all you need for this cake. I’m also pretty certain that it was be almost as good without the rhubarb filling, or with some other seasonal crop in there, like cherries or berries. Why not? Continue reading

Inside Out Grilled Cheese

Note: Don’t forget to enter our birthday giveaway!

You might think that this recipe is boring, but it really is the best grilled cheese. Ever. I make it in my mini cast iron skillet with pita bread, butter, and two kinds of cheese.

The most important part of this sandwich? To put the cheese on the outside of the pita bread. The pocket side gets all buttery, crispy, and delicious, and is just so much better when it’s outside the sandwich! Don’t believe me? Try it! Continue reading

Carrot Cake Cookies

Note: Don’t forget to enter our birthday giveaway!

You guys have heard about our love for carrot cake. Well, these cookies are a very easy way to get that flavor without fussing over layering and frosting a giant cake. We didn’t frost these cookies, but we’ll go ahead and tell you how you can, anyway.

We found this recipe in the May issue of Bon Appetit – they have an entire section on carrots, actually. They’re in season, so if you can find really great looking carrots at the farmer’s market, these will probably be better than the ones I made. Try them with purple carrots, too! I didn’t use raisins or walnuts, I’m just not a fan. I don’t like them in my carrot cake, either. If you do, then go ahead and add them. Continue reading
