Strawberry Ice Cream With No Eggs

HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM with no eggs!  This homemade recipe is easy to make in your ice cream maker and is filled with fresh strawberries!  It’s made with heavy cream, half and half and is eggless! This is one of the best Summer dessert recipes to eat!

The ice cream cravings are out of control this week!  With the mixture of Summer temperatures, fresh strawberries growing in the garden and craving cold ice cream, I broke our ice cream maker out of the cabinet and made this Strawberry Ice Cream With No Eggs!

Eggs are often included in making delicious ice cream but I’m a believer that they aren’t necessary for creating some of the best, homemade ice cream.  This ice cream includes half and half, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, a dash of salt and lots of fresh strawberries – and trust me, that’s all you need!

The taste of this ice cream has the perfect strawberry ratio to it, with the strawberry taste shining through.  I recommend taking your strawberries and pureeing them every so slightly so they’re a good mashed consistency,  but be careful not to puree them too much!

Slow Cooker Tomato Cheese Dip

Slow Cooker Tomato Cheese Dip is a creamy easy to make dip that uses fresh tomatoes, peppers and Velveeta cheese!  This simple homemade recipe is ready in 2 hours in the slow cooker and perfect to serve with tortilla chips for your next party! We especially love this dip for Mexican meals!   This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mission®. All opinions are entirely my own.

We just planted our tomato plants last weekend and already I’m dreaming up tomato recipes to make in a few months.  Remember I said we were going to plant less tomatoes to make the garden easier on us this year (hi baby! arriving soon!)? Well we didn’t. We’re going to have a whole lot of tomato plants, so I got to thinking about my Creamy Cherry Tomato Sauce and how I could use that method to create a slow cooker tomato recipe.  For this delicious dip recipe,  we’re throwing fresh tomatoes, sweet peppers, salt and pepper in the slow cooker and then adding in cheddar cheese to make it extra creamy.   This is the perfect summer dip recipe because it’s easy to make, uses fresh vegetables and tastes delicious dipping tortilla chips into!

What I really love about this recipe is that it tastes so fresh because you’re using real fresh ingredients.   Summer time is the perfect time to pick garden ripe tomatoes, the sweetest peppers and a few jalapeno peppers to slice and garnish on top.  Besides the cheese, I can grab all these ingredients straight from the garden and throw them right into the slow cooker!

Summer Tomato Planting

It’s tomato time you guys!  One of the most exciting parts of the garden year is Summer tomato planting for us.  The tomatoes always steal the show in the garden during the Summer, so seeing them in the ground gets us excited for the upcoming few months of care, growing, picking and endless tomato sauce cooking in the kitchen.
Summer Tomato Planting tips for transplanting indoor tomato seedlings outside to your garden. Follow these growing and planting tips for a big tomato harvest!

First up… the plant car!  Since we plant the seeds in our Brooklyn apartment to germinate and grow under our grow lights, once the weather allows and the plants are strong enough we transport them Upstate to the garden.  We carefully pack each tomato, tomatillo and pepper plant into the back of our little car away we go!  I always like to think that the plants enjoy their scenic ride Upstate New York to their new home.

Newton Crib Mattress Review: Best Mattress For First Time Moms

Newton Crib Mattress Review- the Wovenaire is the best mattress for your baby that is 100% breathable! Perfect for First Time Moms who are worried about everything (that’s me!).

For my next review in the baby series, I’m diving into mattresses.  Consider this another category that I put endless amounts of time into reading reviews and cross comparing products.  This, like so many other baby products, resulted in Matthew physically removing my computer from my lap late night one day saying “That’s enough reviews for you today”.   I’m obsessed.

Baby mattresses range widely in quality and price.  They’re firm, they’re soft, they’re made out of this, they’re made out of that, they are waterproof, they soak up water, they’re $29, they’re $400, etc.    I ended up getting the Newton Crib Mattress for our baby because it checked everything off that was a must have for me, most importantly: safety.  
Newton Crib Mattress Review- the Wovenaire is the best mattress for your baby that is 100% breathable! Perfect for First Time Moms who are worried about everything (that's me!).

The Newton Wovenaire Crib Mattress is 100% breathable and uses the highest quality food-grade polymer extruded into a crystal clear pool of water.   From there it creates a resilient three-dimensional shape that is 90% air by volume.  What does this mean in regular words?  It means it’s safe, cleaner and healthier for your baby.  If you are worried about the baby rolling over in the middle of the night, this mattress is completely breathable.  Tests have shown that babies can breathe right through the mattress which reduces risk of suffocation.   Being a first time parent, this is something that worries me and I know will keep me up at night so having this reassurance definitely makes me feel better.

When you think of New York – what do you think of?  You probably think of Times Square, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the great Borough of Brooklyn (hi!) and the subway.  You probably think of food too!  New York is the center of great food and one of the most popular foods here are bagels!  Oh bagels! You beautiful, delicious things.  

Bagels are great. I could live on them.  They come in all flavors, you can toast them, you can eat them on the go, you could eat them for breakfast, lunch, or at 3AM in the morning in bed because you’re hungry.  I’m spoiled because I get to live in the city with the best bagels in the World.  There’s something about the water in NYC that creates the perfect bagel, and whatever it is, I thank it because, goodness,  NYC bagels are delicious.

I’ve been wanting to share some of my favorite NYC recipes with you guys so I decided to start at the top.  Ok, we’re not making bagels here, but we’re using bagels to create bagel bite chips which are my favorite snack.   If you’ve bought bagel chips in the store you know they are pretty expensive for a small bag, but did you know you can make your own for just a few dollars?  They’re so easy to make, extremely crunchy and full of flavor!  Whenever I make these they last about 2 days in the house and I have to wrestle Matthew for the last chips.
