Pardon me while I peace out of this joint and hop a flight to Georgia. Just in time for the holidays, an Atlanta-based business called “Frozen Pints,” which creates one-of-a-kind craft beer ice cream (complete with an alcohol content!), has whipped up their newest flavor: Pumpkin Ale Ice Cream. You know what this means, don’t you? If you’re lucky enough to live near Georgia, this year’s Thanksgiving dessert can make you tipsy and your family more tolerable to be around. Keep reading »
I never thought I’d use the word “pretty” to describe the disappointing pile of mush you end up with when an ice cream cone melts, but this video makes dessert look like art.

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!
TablehoppingNY just released a list of the most expensive dishes in New York City and I am honestly disturbed that anyone would pay $25,000 for an ice cream sundae. Like a twisted version of the glow-in-the-dark figurine at the bottom of your Frosted Fruit Loops, the $25K sundae at Serendipity 3 sits on top of a sticky 18-karat gold and diamond bracelet. All I can say is, for $25,000, this sundae better turn your shit gold. [TablehoppingNY]
For years, I have dreamed of making homemade ice cream, but I have never risen to the challenge. Apparently you need a machine?!? A friend suggested I try ice cream’s simpler cousin sorbet. No equipment required! Try one of these surprisingly easy and refreshing summer treats…
