Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Hooray! Sunday is National Ice Cream Day! Every year, the third Sunday in July is celebrated with rich, creamy frozen desserts. I can’t think of a better way to satisfy my sweet tooth. Kick back and get excited because it’s going to be the BEST DAY EVER.


Treat Yo’ Self. Take a scoop (or two, or three!) of Hint of Vanilla‘s sinfully delicious Chocolate Custard Ice Cream.



Take a cue from the classics. Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Copycat Recipe by Something Swanky is an inexpensive take on a family-favorite recipe.



Keep it refreshing. Consider using freshly picked summer berries like Scoop Adventures did in its Black Raspberry Chip Ice Cream.



Sometimes simple is better than complicated. No-Churn Pistachio Ice Cream by The Sweet Escape is just that. It’s Quick. It’s Easy. And you DON’T need an expensive ice cream maker.



Remember to have fun! Cotton Candy Ice Cream by Home and Plate pleases the kids and looks pretty on the plate.




Impress the guests!  Dessert for Two‘s posh Chocolate Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe is certain to leave even the pickiest eaters wide-eyed.



Basic doesn’t have to mean boring. Zoom Yummy‘s perfected Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream recipe shines brightest when paired with a special dessert sauce.




Beat the afternoon slump! Espresso works as a great pick-me-up. That’s why Mocha Fudge Ice Cream by Things We Make is every girl’s go-to afternoon munchy.




Be bold! Drizzle and Dip‘s bright, punchy Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream commands attention.




Life’s better together. Why not mix and match your favorite flavors into one glorious dish? Many thank-you’s to Minimalist Baker for the inspirational Raspberry Ripple Coconut Ice Cream recipe!



Happy National Ice Cream Day…The BEST DAY EVER!

Okay, I’ll admit it. One of my absolute favorite parts about working at Better Homes and Gardens is looking at mouth-watering recipes throughout the day. All of my searching through dishes on and food blogs results in some delicious discoveries which is why I’m excited to share our new Friday Finds series with you! I’ll be sharing some of my favorite foodie inspiration from our BHG Insiders, a group of bloggers that we connect with for projects. With things heating up around the country, I had ice cream on my mind this week:

This decadent Black Cherry Fudge Ripple Ice Cream from Kitchen Meets Girl looks surprisingly simple. Plus, the easy-to-make summer treat  doesn’t even require an ice cream machine!

Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Salted Caramel Sauce? Yes, please! This dish from Ciera Design looks like the ideal end to a backyard barbecue.

These Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles from Damn Delicious look hard to resist. Greek yogurt, cream cheese and fresh strawberries make up their creamy cheesecake base.

I love out-of-the-ordinary ice cream flavors and this Roasted Raspberry Frozen Yogurt from Brooklyn Supper certainly does the trick by bringing the flavors of roasted fruit, balsamic vinegar and maple syrup together.

What better way to eat your ice cream than in a cute cone? I Heart Naptime shows how to make these Rainbow Dipped Ice Cream Cones for parties or everyday occasions.
