S'More Ice Cream Pie

Screw pumpkin and apple pies. This is the pie people really want. It's made with a graham cracker crust filled with chocolate-mini marshmallow ice cream then covered with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and graham cracker crumbles. 

This pie also won "Most Likely to Put You in a Food Coma" at a friend's pie competition. I consider it a huge honor.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Some ice creams are meant to be slowly savored, bite by tiny bite. This is not that ice cream. This is the one that you'll want to ravage until there's nothing left but a shiny clean bowl.  

Creamy gooey stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth peanut butter.

Rosemary Ice Cream

I have a chicken to thank for this recipe. Whenever I roast one, I always have some fresh rosemary left over. It sits in my fridge forever, and I finally throw it away. Then one day, I had the idea to use it in an ice cream. Genius, I know. 

This is one of my favorite ice cream flavors. I even made it twice, and I almost never make the same flavor twice.

Rhubarb Strawberry Champagne Sorbet

It's hot outside, and I'm on a rhubarb kick. To beat the heat, I decided to make this sweet, tangy, boozy, and most importantly, COLD sorbet. It was a huge summer dinner party hit.

There are technically no strawberries in this recipe—just strawberry-flavored Champagne.

Rhubarb Frozen Yogurt

Rhubarb was forbidden in my household growing up. You see, when my dad was a kid, his family had a giant rhubarb plant in the backyard. They would make pies and jams, but my dad refused to eat them because he often spotted the neighborhood dog marking its territory on the plant. To this very day, the thought of rhubarb still grosses him out.

I later discovered that rhubarb is actually pretty good. It's tart and fruity and tastes something like strawberry jam when you cook it down with sugar. It's also the perfect compliment to tangy plain yogurt.

Lemon Poppy Seed Ice Cream

Don't let its loveliness fool you. The lemon packs a lot of punch and the poppy seeds provide a fun little crackle with each bite. 

Inspired by one of my favorite treats: lemon poppy seed bread.

Oreo Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Behold the Turducken of Oreos. For those who aren't familiar with the Turducken, it's a duck stuffed inside a chicken inside a turkey. This recipe is essentially Oreos inside Oreos stuffed inside Oreos (meta, I know). The cookies are blended into the ice cream base with large chunks mixed in. Then, the whole thing is stuffed inside an Oreo. 

Crunchy and gooey!
