Anchovy Ice Cream on Grilled Caesar Salad

A salad, tossed and served in a bowl – BORING! Instead throw that lettuce on the BBQ and turn your dressing into an ice cream: Anchovy Ice Cream on Grilled Caesar Salad! Voilà!

It’s Food ‘n Flix time again! In this monthly group a host picks a movie of their choice that pertains to food. Everyone watches the movie and then makes a recipe which the film inspired. It can be any recipe you want. This month’s pick is hosted by Kimberly at Coffee and Casseroles and she picked a fun movie that the whole family can enjoy: Hotel Transylvania 2. It’s been a while since I did a crazy recipe, this movie was full of insane inspirations but I took one almost word for word, that is Anchovy Ice Cream!

Marshmallow Ice Cream & How Social Media Saved my Ass

Marshmallows are not just for campfires in the summer. Oh no! They can also be mixed in with your coolest estival treat to become Marshmallow Ice Cream.

Here is a new unusual ice cream to add to my long list of exotic frozen treats. Marshmallow ice cream reminds us of camping, summer, lakes and all that good stuff. Marshmallow ice cream also evoke scary story telling around the campfire.

Therefor I am taking this post hostage to recite my scary spooky urban tale (the story is scary, not were I live as people have misunderstood) where two friends answered my bat signal for help in the middle of the night. Also we could not have have come out victorious without all of today’s modern technology. And so the tale begin….

Not Yo Mama’s Neapolitan

Nothing beats the summer heat like a Neapolitan frozen treat. Yonanas comes to the rescue with a healthy fruit “ice cream” which will also be kind to your bikini line.

It’s really summer and it is officially frozen dessert season here in the Northern Hemisphere. As you all know I am a huge fan of ice cream but I have been watching what I eat and when I look at the calorie count of ice cream…yikes. That does not mean I will completely deprive myself of ice cream pleasures but for everyday treats finding a healthier alternative is a huge step in the right direction.

Raspberry Granita and its Warm Sauce

I have the most adorable story to tell you. I have a new boyfriend. He is 7. We met on the bus while I was playing a game on my phone on Tuesday. He asked me over for a playdate to play Connect 4 and Skylanders. And I had to ask him what Skylanders was. I was getting the extend description version but had to get off the bus at my stop. He proceeded to tell me approximately where he lived. I told him we would hopefully meet on the street soon and then go play. His mother and the other passengers around had smiles and were muffling giggles from how cute this whole thing was.

Bean Vegan Lately? Brazilian Vegan Feijoada & Red Bean Ice Cream

More beans are good for you! Here are two great recipes to add to your recipe rotation: Vegan Feijoada and Japanese Red Bean Ice Cream.

For as long as I can remember my mom has been on the hunt for good recipes with beans and legumes. This has influenced me a bit too as I may not search for such recipes as actively but if they fall in my lap my curiosity will be piqued. When I was offered the Vegan Beans from Around the World cookbook for review I could hardly say no. The ‘around the world’ part obviously increased my interest. Would it love up to my high expectation? Let’s find out with the two recipes I prepared from this cookbook: the Brazilian Vegan Feijoada and the Japanese Red Bean Ice Cream.
