It has been way too long since I have posted a recipe, and can you believe it’s already September?? (scoot over berries and ice cream, pumpkin is moving IN!)
I hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer filled with all sorts of fun things.
I have two things to share with you today. One is to give you a heads up that some changes are making their way to SD.
Keeping up this blog has been a bit of a challenge for me (as you can see – it’s been over a month since my last recipe). Blogging in general can be extremely time consuming, but food blogging is really very time consuming. Coming up with ideas (that’s not so bad ;), making the idea, sometimes ideas aren’t perfect and need a little tweaking so we make it again, photograph the food, write about the food, write out the recipe; this all equals TOO MUCH TIME. So, one way I have decided to save time is by ditching most of the words in my posts. Other than the necessary description of the recipe – which we all need because we want to know why we should make what is being presented to us – all future posts are going to be written in photos, well, along with the recipe of course.
I know we eat with our eyes (I certainly do!), so therefore, I am going to concentrate on the visual side of things and let pictures do the talking. In a way, this is a challenge I can’t wait to get at and work with my brother on. (he may not like it so much, but hey, he eats well! ;^P)
This change might also allow me to be at least a little different in the crazy world of food blogs and do what I ultimately want to which is to share great food!
Now, second on the agenda is (I’m really excited about this!) the winning ice cream combination from Tracy R. that she suggested during my giveaway in July. Tracy suggested something in the nature of raspberry and chocolate, so I came up with this Raspberry White Chocolate S’mores ice cream.
Not only is it a great combination (raspberry+chocolate+s’more goodness), but you’re also getting sort of a two-in-one deal. On one hand you’re getting raspberries and chocolate and on the other your s’mores fix.
Tracy, I hope this meets your idea and that you get a chance to try it – I had such fun creating!
The lowdown: This ice cream starts by incorporating melted white chocolate into the base, after which graham cracker chunks (for crunch) and fresh raspberries are added in. Lastly, (the fun part!) toasted marshmallow creme is swirled in making for a berry fun twist on s’mores ice cream! ;)
