No Churn Caramel Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Yes this is another ice cream recipe because I am OBSESSED with making ice cream okay?   Everyone will deal! This one is a little different though.  I decided to step away from my typical ice cream recipes  that require the Kitchen Aid ice cream attachment and create a no churn recipe.  Basically, you make it, freeze it and serve! It takes NO time.   For my first attempt, I went for a recipe that is similar to the Talenti Caramel Crunch that I love, and created a No Churn Caramel Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! No Churn Caramel Chocolate Chip Ice Cream [...]

Whipped Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

For those who follow me on Instagram, you may have been watching my chocolate cake progress over the last few months! I have used a few Pinterest recipes for the chocolate cake and they have all turned out well.  For the buttercream and ganache though, I keep toying with it to get the flavor and consistencies I like!  The ganache is still a work in process because it's not dripping the way I want it to *heavy sighs*.  This go around, I made a cake for my sister's birthday and it was a beauty plus the chocolate buttercream came out PERFECT.

Today just so happens to be National Ice Cream Day! As you may have gathered, ice cream or frozen custard recipes are probably my favorite things to make!  For National Ice Cream Day I decided to change it up a bit and make a dairy free frozen custard.  Please do not think for a second that I am shifting over to a health food blog, because that ain't me!

Pineapple Mule

*This is a sponsored post, but please trust that the opinions listed below are my own!* Summer is my FAVORITE season.  Yes it is hot as hades in Houston, but summer brings out the best events, food and longer days to pack more fun in.   For my family, summer means my dad will be hopping on the grill and my sister and I will head out to Cypress to chill on the deck while eating some good food.  This summer, we have stepped it up a notch with some fun summer drinks to sip while chillaxing on the deck!  [...]

Pistachio Frozen Custard

*Sticks pinky toe outside* it is officially summer in Houston therefore it is appropriate for me to bust out another frozen custard recipe!  After visiting Cafe Azur and Peli Peli I became obsessed with pistachio ice cream! Prior to visiting these local restaurants, I did not trust green ice cream so I avoided it.  I felt like Mikey from the old Life cereal commercials, because after trying it I actually liked it.  When I try random things out, it makes me want to go home and try to make it on my own to suit my tastebuds and pickiness (See here [...]

BGWB Buttercream Recipe

On a rare occasion, the cooking spirit comes over me I run to my kitchen to whip up something new or play around with old recipes.  Years ago I perfected a homemade buttercream that I have been making ever since.  I literally will buy a box cake and throw my own buttercream with it!  On this occasion I just wanted the buttercream, dats it.  But I quickly realized that a dish created from butter and sugar only looks good when it's on a cake! So I was forced to create the whole shebang for the sake of this blog.  My [...]

Vanilla Bean Frozen Custard Recipe

Many many moons ago, I was an unemployed attorney living the housewife life (don't ask lol).  With a gift card I purchased my most cherished kitchen item, a KitchenAid mixer.  It immediately sent me into a baking frenzy and recipe creation. Then once I picked up the ice cream attachment I was deep into creating the perfect at home frozen custard because the ice cream starters kits are for suckers.  I shared this recipe on an old blog that I no longer post on.  Since I abandoned it, the recipe has been shared countless times, so it seemed like a [...]

Potluck Time: Banana Trifle

I love to start a post with a somewhat relevant story, so here it goes!  When I graduated law school I entered into the suckiest legal market in recent history.  With little experience I was relegated to the document review world or as I called it, the land of the unwanted attorney.  Basically, the work was super boring and simple enough that a trained monkey could do it.  Then the jobs were temporary with no benefits.  When I tell you it was THE worst.  As you can imagine, we tried to make the best of it.  On one project, everyone [...]

Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

As you know I am a make reservations kinda gal rather than spend all day in the kitchen.  However, because I do not does not mean I cannot!  When the urge hits me I generally try to whip up something homemade and a little more detailed.  On this particular Sunday, a trip to Trader Joe's had me wanting to roast my own chicken and concoct some good hearty sides to go with it.  Most importantly have some leftovers to get me through the week. So I started out using this recipe from Carnal Dish for a Meyer Lemon & Garlic [...]

White Chocolate & Honey Blondies

  A few weeks ago I received my second Degusta Box!  Opening the monthly subscription box still feels like Christmas.  As promised, each box will include some things you have probably seen before or tried.   This go around, that item was the Honey Bunches of Oats cereal.  The other draw of course are new items that you may have never heard of.  In this box I was immediately intrigued by the White Lily White Grape Seed Flour.   I have spurts of baking madness where I am using my KitchenAid mixer weekly, but I have not had much inspiration [...]
