Once upon a time, I worked in an ice cream parlor called Scoops. On slow summer days, we would create ice cream sandwiches out of any and everything in the store. Homemade chocolate chip cookies with moose tracks ice cream dipped in fudge? Yes, please. What about lemon poppy pound cake with a cool layer of vanilla bean ice cream and rainbow sprinkles? Amen! We never sold these creations, but I can assure you, they were tasty. Try one of these scrumptious ice cream sandwich recipes or grab your favorite sweets and get creative!
As a kid, I loved blueberry muffins but hated fresh blue berries. I always found tiny, tasteless and pointless. I don’t know what was wrong with me. This year, I have discovered my passion for blueberries. I have been buying them in bulk at Costco and eating bowls of them for breakfast! At first I was adding a few to my granola, but within days, I was sprinkling a little granola over my blueberries. With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, I am considering a blueberry feast. First course … blueberry chicken salad!
I cook the same dishes all the time, mostly because I like to stick to what’s easy. That being said, repetition leads to boredom, boredom leads to fast food, fast food leads to suffering. So I started using substitutions and fixes to make the same-old meals take new twists and develop flavors I didn’t mind eating over and over. Here are my top six fixes for new recipe revelations!

Does anything sound more delicious than a churro ice cream sandwich (besides, maybe, a gold-encrusted sundae)? Yes, the trendy dessert craze can be overwhelming, overpriced and overhyped, but how else would we receive delicious summer treats like this hybrid churro delicacy? Created by chef Sylvia Yoo at Churro Borough, a catering company in LA, the sandwich consists of a scoop of ice cream in flavors like Mexican hot chocolate and horchata between two flattened, crispy churros. Churro ice cream sandwiches grace several pop-up shops with their presences this summer and appear at the LA Street Food Festival. Tragically for those of us outside California, they have yet to make their way to the rest of the US. The good news is that Yoo is hard at work on Churrons, churro-flavored macarons. Yes please!

There is something wonderfully nostalgic about tater tots. Tater tots were the highlight of my school cafeteria lunches — nothing matched their crispy greasy goodness. These days, I prefer French fries, but these creative creations have me wanting to stock up and go to town…
GUYS. The “Game of Thrones” finale is THIS WEEKEND. How did the season go by this fast? Why must we wait another year until we get our fix of our favorite Westerosis?
OK, to be fair, I started binge-watching “Game of Thrones” in the beginning of April this year. I’ve been sadly skeptical of the show for the last four years, which I found out was a mistake as soon as I started watching. I’m so addicted that I binged the first three seasons over the course of two weeks and then, not being able to wait a week between episodes, started reading the Song of Ice and Fire series. I’m already halfway through book three. SAVE ME. Keep reading »
