Caramel & Kahlua Ice Cream with Kahlua Fudge Ribbon Globs

This ice cream was created last night instead of the consolation cream I’d hastily planned after the Great Peanut Butter Rolo Cookie Disaster.

New residents and people who’ve lived here longer take the opportunity to … More Seattle Night Out: Block Party Potluck with Spicy Eggplant Parm Dip, Rustic Garlic Bread and Blackberry Ice Cream

In the kitchen with juliyya: Black Cherry Ice Cream

My cookies-and-cream companion yesterday was an eight year-old natural kitchen artist, as will be seen in a separate post.
