I just got back from a week at my family’s cabin in Idaho. It was wonderful and I can’t wait to tell you more about it, but first I must tell you about this ice cream. It starts with toasted marshmallows and ends with a rich and creamy ice cream that reminisces of warm summer nights spent around a campfire. Summer just isn’t summer without enjoying at least one s’more, am I right? As much as I love the combination of toasted marshmallow, graham cracker, and chocolate, often I prefer to eat just the marshmallow straight from the roasting stick. I don’t really even mind if it catches fire, I have to blow it out, and I’m left with a charred mess. It’s almost better that way.
And now I don’t even need a campfire to enjoy the taste of toasted marshmallows. I can dish it up straight from the freezer.
Your summer needs this refreshing cherry limeade granita, trust me on this one. Before the season ends, promise me you’ll make it. A granita is kind of like a snow cone, with chunks of flavorful ice that are perfect for a hot summer’s day. Also, it’s easy. All you need is a freezer and a little patience.
I’ve long been a big fan of cherry limeades from Sonic Drive In, but now that I’ve made the real deal I don’t know if I can go back to their version. This recipe uses real cherries and lime juice, a little simple syrup, and some club soda. You could certainly pour it over ice and enjoy it straight away, and in fact you’re probably going to be tempted to do so. But it’s worth the wait to hold out for the granita.

This summer I had perhaps the best idea of my life— Ice Cream Sunday. I’ve been making ice cream every Sunday for the last several weeks and it is the best way to end a hot summer weekend. I’ve made pina colada sherbet, chocolate chip cookie dough, and strawberry sour cream.
Last weekend I wanted to kick Ice Cream Sunday up a notch. Plus, I was craving cookies. So I combined the two and ended up with these raspberry ice cream and almond sugar cookie sandwiches.
Summer is here! At least it is according to the weather. It’s been hot the last few days and I could not have timed trying this piña colada sherbet recipe better. Nothing says summer more than the combo of pineapple, coconut, and rum. And nothing beats the summer heat more than a frozen treat. It’s a winning combination for sure.
Heavy whipping cream.
A heavy dose of vanilla extract.
A splash of scotch whiskey.
And pecans roasted in butter and salt.
Are you drooling yet? These are the star ingredients of this butterscotch pecan ice cream recipe, and a few reasons why you need this frozen dessert in your life.
