Banana Stracciatella

Stracciatella is an Italian gelato flavor that is perfect in its simplicity. Finely shaved chocolate in a sweet cream ice cream base. After Ben and Jerry’s invented chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream in 1991, unfortunately, many ice cream producers have been either too lazy to make the cookie dough, or too lazy to to…

Moose Tracks Ice Cream

Moose Tracks is an ice cream flavor invented in 1988 in Michigan, featuring vanilla ice cream, mini peanut butter cups, and a fudge swirl.

Blistered Shishito Pepper Ice Cream

I recently had an amazing meal at Aviary in Austin, where the waiter recommended their pasta featuring blistered shishito ricotta. It was a subtle but unique twist on a milk product–something I’m always going for in my ice cream flavors–so I decided to recreate it in the form of an ice cream. Blistering shishitos sounds…

Drunky Chunky Monkey (+ bonus cocktail)

Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey is officially breakfast food. It’s banana-bread-meets-milk-and-cereal. All wrapped up in ice cream. I don’t have a favorite flavor, but every time I eat Chunky Monkey, I think crazy-ice-cream-lady thoughts, like, “If I had to marry one, this would be my life partner.”

Chocolate Mustard Ice Cream

After hearing about this combo on Gastropod, I had to make this flavor into ice cream.

All I know is that it’s really, really good.

Zeroll Ice Cream Scoop vs. Midnight Ice Cream Scoop

It claims to literally be “bomb proof.” But perhaps more importantly, it’s dishwasher proof. I put it to the test against the Zeroll Scoop.

Deconstructed Nutter Butter Ice Cream

Exactly a year ago, my brother Bryan came to visit. Thanks to SXSW, to my dismay, all my favorite places to show him were closed for private parties and events. He was also only supposed to stay for a weekend, but when a blizzard hit Boston, he was forced to stay in town for a…

Shamrock Coffee Ice Cream

This recipe is for the folks who down Shamrock Shakes from McDonald’s only slightly concerned that it has 54 ingredients, for the people who get their weekly Frappuccino fix the moment they get that first Spring Has Sprung feeling. This is fresh mint, real coffee, and little luck (2 shots of Irish Whiskey).

Duck Fat Tamari Ice Cream with Cherries

Last year, I went through Santa Fe on my way to Colorado and made a pit stop at Joseph’s. Sometimes we save money by camping or driving places just so that we can put it towards really good food, and Joseph’s is a perfect example of that. For dessert, I ordered Duck Fat Caramel Tamari…
