Orange Ice Cream with Pistachios and Cinnamon Tequila Cherries

Fun Fact: I had made the Cherry Tequila Sunrise as an afterthought.  I originally soaked the cherries to make this ice cream.  When you’re not looking or paying attention and you just let go and go with life’s flow.  That’s when good things happen.  Life is like that.  Unless you’re driving.  I’ve let myself go and wandered while driving and almost took out a guardrail.  A dog.  Some bushes.  Other cars. People. 

Vanilla Frosting Funfetti Popsicles

I’m a fat kid at heart.  I think a lot of people are.  Who didn’t eat frosting right out of the can as a kid?  If you didn’t you probably had a pretty shitty childhood.  Boring at the very least.  Your mom was probably the type that was on your ass for everything you did.

Watermelon Tomato Salad

The first time I came across a watermelon tomato salad on a menu I scoffed.  “This can’t be any good.” I said to myself, out loud.  Well, that was the first time I was wrong that day.   I love when people experiment with food and flavors.  I loved the watermelon tomato salad so much that it has almost become my favorite summer salad.  Greek salad being my all time favorite salad, no matter the season.

Almond Milk Horchata and Green Tea Smoothie

During summer Horchata is one of my favorite drinks to keep in my fridge.  Always mixing and twisting and trying to come up with new flavors or use it in a different way.  One of my favorite Horchata’s I ever made is the Chai Horchata.  I used it making brown rice and almonds.  It is deeeelish.  You wouldn’t think about chai for a summer flavoring but you would be wrong.

Lemon Ginger Zinger

I never used to be a fan of Lemon Curd as a child. Which is weird considering I was an obese ate everything-that-got-in-my-way kid. I used to have this fear as a kid that I would get too fat to ride my bike to 7-11 to buy candy bars. Thank God that didn’t happen. By the time I got too fat to ride my bike I was driving. God works in mysterious ways let me tell ya.

Green Tea and Brown Rice Ice Cream

One day while I was at work a coworker asked me if I wanted some green tea. Green Tea? Hell no I didn’t want any green tea. I’m at work, I’m trying to accomplish things, I need coffee. Give me green tea after a massage and a sushi buffet and let me take my nap. Then she pulled out this mystical looking tea bag in a shape I had never seen a tea bag shaped before. She held it up and spun it around like it had powers. “It has bits of brown rice in it” she said. I just nodded my head like I was in a trance and said “yes, I would like some of that.”
