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!

Guest Post: Avocado and Cream Cheese Sandwich

Please welcome the lovely Leat, who turns 24 today, as we share a delicious sandwich whose ingredients we never thought of combining. Happy birthday, Leat!
