Bye, Summer: 3-Ingredient No-Churn Nutella Ice Cream

I love ice cream. In fact, I scream for ice cream. Seriously. Sometimes I get so excited for ice cream I start screaming my head off. And I know you do too. I mean, doesn’t everyone? But to make homemade ice cream, it seems you need one of those huge, expensive ice cream churners. And I could imagine that you wouldn’t want to buy one of those. So, here is a secret to lift my spirits and yours up. You don’t need an ice cream churner to make ice cream. Now is the time should be screaming for ice cream because making ice cream is no longer a tedious process consisting of tempering eggs, creating the perfect custard, churning the mixture, and then freezing it for what feels like decades. This is a much faster, much easier process that yields flavorful and creamy results! And as an added bonus, you don’t need to let your ice cream sit out before consumption! Straight from the freezer, no-churn ice cream is perfectly soft and creamy. So let’s get started on making 3-Ingredient No-Churn Nutella Ice Cream!

Bye, Summer: Homemade Waffle Cones

Ah, the end of Summer. A bittersweet moment where we say bye-bye to Summer and hello to Fall. If Summer was a person, she would be lively, fun, and always the center of attention. Fall would be that comforting, caring friend always at your side. That being said, I love Summer, but truthfully, Fall is my favorite season. I mean, hello? Pumpkin pie spice everything? Pumpkin everything? That sounds pretty good to me. But still, Summer deserves a special goodbye present for all the joy it has brought. So as a parting gift to Summer, I am doing a three-part segment that includes how to make homemade waffle cones, no-churn Nutella ice cream, and no-churn cookie dough ice cream! And you’re in luck because today you’ll be learning how to make subtly sweet, buttery, and crunchy waffle cones, the perfect vehicle for your homemade ice creams.

Chocolate Tropical French Toast in a Mug

Oh French toast, how I love thee. I will write a poem for just for you, my love:

Bananas are yellow,

chocolate is brown.

I don’t know where this is going,

I should stop writing now.

But anyway…. My point is microwave mug cakes don’t have to be just for dessert. They have every right to be at the breakfast table too! Think about it, they’re quick and super easy to make. So I have taken the liberty to create a Microwave Chocolate Tropical French Toast in a Mug (I know, I shouldn’t have). This French toast in a mug is a complete breakfast. You’ll be getting fiber from the whole wheat bread, protein from the egg, calcium from the milk, and vitamins from the fruit! (But don’t worry. If you’re freaked about it being healthy, I added chocolate. No worries, bro.)
