Sundae School Rocks

When on the Cape visit the Sundae School. It's worth the wait! Definitely will post more later but for now I'm enjoying a dish of Coffee Oreo and Chocolate Peanut Butter at the Sundae School in Dennisport, MA on the Cape. Happy Memorial Day!

Kickin it up - Margarita Ice Cream Recipe

Cinco de Mayo came and went and I was remiss on sharing this awesome Margarita Ice Cream recipe I tried out. I really had no big plans to celebrate because I really had no reason to but who really needs a reason to have  a margarita...not me! So instead of making myself a cocktail I churned one. This is so so good and so easy. This version is adapted from Nigella Lawson's (The Food Network) recipe.

Margarita Ice Cream
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons tequila
3 tablespoons Triple Sec
1 cup powdered sugar
2.5 cups heavy cream

Mix the lime juice, Tequila, Triple Sec and sugar together until the sugar dissolves. Add the cream and whip with a whisk until slightly thicker. Freeze in ice cream maker until soft serve consistency. Place in container to freeze overnight. Enjoy!

Because of the addition of alcohol the ice cream will not become very hard. It is smooth, creamy, tart and has a kick! Seriously every time I open the freezer I have to take a bite. It makes it feel like summer is already here!

Oh and at the end of the day I did get that actual margarita....or two!

The Best Mint Chocolate Ice Cream

Do you agree?

Ask my daughter what Mom's favorite ice cream is and she screams...Mint Chocolate Chip! My dilemma every time I get ice cream is that I have to have Mint Chocolate Chip but want to branch out and try something new so that leaves me always having to get two scoops. Tough problem to have I know! So when I saw this article on Kitchen Daily I had to share. They rate our own favorite Ben and Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie as #1...what do you think? Well I went through them all and maybe agree but I also really like Turkey Hill's Choco Mint Chip. The chocolate is more like shavings then chips and its throughout rather than scattered. And it is super creamy. No not premium tasting like BandJ but still good. Probably why they say they "mildly recommend"but I like it and give it a thumbs up. I haven't tried Talenti's gelato but I so love the simple packaging that this one needs to go on my long list of "must tries." And luckily my local grocer carries it. 

Give a shout out to your favorite Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!
