Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Salted Caramel Gelato

Trader Joe’s Salted Caramel Gelato Tastes Like:  Words fail!  It’s creamy, savory, sweet.  But does it taste like salted caramel?  I would say “no.”  It’s got a sort of butterscotch-y flavor to it, and it’s delicious, don’t get me wrong.  I’m not even sure if I’d know the taste of[…]

Scientifically Perfect Chocolate Ice Cream

I whipped up a batch of this (with some help from my boyfriend’s mom) on Thanksgiving morning…could this be a new tradition?  Ice cream instead of turkey?  It’s easier to carve and if you ask me, it’s a lot more delicious! As a bonus, here’s a shot of “helper” dog,[…]
