These Chocolate Raspberry Popsicles are a refreshing frozen chocolate treat to enjoy on a hot day. These pops, filled with raspberries, are also vegan!In the summer, one of my favorite ways to get my chocolate fix is through a fudgesicle. As a kid and to this day, my mom always has them in the freezer and they’re still one of my favorite snacks to grab when I’m at her house. They’re smooth, creamy, and just chocolatey enough to satisfy any of your chocolate cravings.

I’d always heard that you could make homemade fudgesicles just by freezing chocolate pudding. What?! I’ve always been super curious to try, and curiosity finally got the best of me. I finally gave in and bought a popsicle mold (though you could just as easily make these in paper cups + popsicle sticks).

This past Sunday, May 17th, I graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in International Business and four years of experience, life lessons, college party stories, and an uncountable numbers of pages written under my belt.

I was surrounded by family and friends that I loved, and my time in college culminated with an unforgettable weekend. I couldn’t be more grateful for the people that have surrounded me throughout my life, supported me, and gotten me here, to right now. [Read more…]

This Chocolate Malt Mocha Crunch Ice Cream is a luscious chocolate ice cream flavored with chocolate malt and coffee, with crunchy malt balls and a chocolate ganache swirl! No ice cream machine requiredHomemade ice cream seems like a total pain. Making the custard, tempering eggs, waiting for things to cool, hoping things don’t curdle…it gets too time consuming and stressful. Ice cream should be fun! What if I told you I made this ice cream from start to finish (excluding freezing time, of course) in about 10 minutes?

It’s true. If you have a mixer to whip cream and a way to melt chocolate, you’ve got a way to make ice cream. This recipe uses a base of sweetened condensed milk folded in with whipped cream. The result makes a luscious, creamy, soft ice cream that you won’t be able to stop eating. [Read more…]

This Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Fudge Swirls comes together quickly and easily and is even easier to eat! No ice cream machine necessary.I couldn’t let summer pass me by without making some ice cream. It’s a staple.

However…since an ice cream maker isn’t something most people have on hand, and it’s something I definitely don’t have living with a bunch of other girls in college, I opted to go the ice cream maker-less route for this ice cream.

The pros: the ice cream is SO easy to make, so few ingredients, and requires ZERO cooking. No sitting with a custard over the stovetop for too long, stirring and waiting, waiting and stirring…this ice cream base recipe requires little to no effort on your part. You simply whip the cream, mix the sweetened condensed milk with some melted chocolate, fold them all together and voila: chocolate ice cream. [Read more…]

White Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream

This super creamy, delicious White Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream takes only 5 minutes and 4 ingredients to make! 

As Chocolate Week comes to a close (how sad!) I want to share with you all this ice cream, which is my best friend Paige’s absolute favorite thing I’ve ever made. And she’s tried just about everything I’ve ever made…ever. This ice cream, as well as this post, is dedicated to her.

I know some people like to consider their friends as their chosen family, but in my case, friends have come and go, whereas my family has always been there. I’ve had ups and downs in my life, and in my downs, friends have tended to go and been replaced with new friends as I got better. Friendships I thought would last forever faded away until all that was left is good memories. [Read more…]

Coffee Gelato

My replication of the delicious Coffee Gelato I ate after every meal in Italy! Perfectly creamy and spiked with espresso, this recipe is pure deliciousness.

Zurich and Como and Venice, oh my! Yes, I’ve just returned home from a Eurotrip, and boy was it incredible. I’ve been dying to go to Italy for years, so when my Dad found out he needed to go to Zurich, Switzerland for business, I begged to tag along and explore Switzerland and Italy with him. He complied, and wow – what a gorgeous, indescribable place.

We started out in Zurich, easily one of the coolest, most gorgeous cities I’ve ever been to. The whole city is immaculate and run so smoothly it makes America look like a third world country. The tree lined streets are filled with urbanites and business people who waltz along, shopping in the incredible Spruengli and Lindt chocolate stores and Rodeo-esque boutiques, all surrounded by the backdrop of the sparkling Lake Zurich. This was the one city I really wished we had more time in – I could’ve walked, shopped, and talked on Bahnofstrasse all day long.

White Chocolate Pecan Banana Ice Cream with Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce

DSC01272-1024x768Summer has officially arrived here in San Diego. Since it shot past eighty today, I think it’s time for ice cream. I’ve always been intrigued by the concept that frozen bananas, when blended, have the consistency of ice cream, and I love to make some banana “ice cream” and layer it into a yogurt parfait for breakfast. However, I just purchased the “Baked: New Frontiers in Baking” cookbook from the famous bakery Baked NYC.

Needless to say, I’m obsessed. Since I’m still not feeling at the top of my game, I haven’t been baking as much, but I’ve sat on my couch flipping through the gorgeous cookbook and admiring every recipe I see. One that particularly caught my attention was the Banana Pecan Piloncillo Ice Cream, which uses bananas as the ice cream based, and is only enhanced by adding melted piloncillo (a Mexican cane sugar – usually in a cone shape) and toasted pecans.
