Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

AWARD WINNING Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream recipe! This homemade recipe is made in the ice cream maker and is for chocolate lovers! It’s my family’s favorite Summer ice cream!

We got a Cuisinart ice cream maker a few weeks ago and it’s changed our Summer!

Having a ice cream maker is a great idea. And by great idea I mean a deliciously bad idea.  Its like you can make ice cream whenever you want.  Which means if you happen to keep all the supplies on hand you can eat ice cream every single day.  Delicious, totally.  Dangerous, totally.

low carb chocolate ice cream recipe

But I like to live on the wild side… when it comes to ice cream.  I live so wild that I checked out 2 ice cream recipe cookbooks from the library and I got a 10 cent fee because one was a day late back.  See.  I’m a wild child.

Vanilla Brownies with Sprinkles

VANILLA Brownies with vanilla frosting and sprinkles on top is everyone’s favorite treat!  This easy dessert recipe makes fudgy, ooey gooey cake tasting vanilla blondies. 

I love vanilla brownies (blondies!).  I love frosting.  I love sprinkles.  These Vanilla Blondies with Vanilla Glaze Frosting are perfect because they check off each of those categories!

Delicious Vanilla Sprinkle Blondies with a vanilla glaze frosting on top is everyone's favorite treat! This easy dessert recipe makes fudgy, ooey gooey cake tasting vanilla brownies (blondies!). Add pretty sprinkles on top and they're perfect for a birthday party!

I should warn you now, these blondies are dangerously good.  I can’t tell you how many blondies I ate because you would have this image of me being a blondie monster in your head and none of you think that.  Right?  Oh goodness, I’m glad I’m right (thanks for making me feel better).  

I love a blondie that is ooey gooey, with some frosting on top.   And this frosting is gorgeous.  It’s my new go to frosting for… well, everything.  It sets perfect and has a shine to it.  I’ve always had a problem making a frosting that was thick enough to set without dripping off the sides of brownies, cakes and donuts.  But this one is a keeper.  Expect to see it often in the next few months in different forms because I have a bunch of donut recipes in my head that  need this frosting!

Sweet Potato Baby Led Weaning Cookies

HOMEMADE COOKIES recipe for baby led weaning and soothing a teething baby! These healthy Sweet Potato cookies are made with mashed sweet potato, banana, baby cereal and oatmeal!   My favorite part is that these cookies are so delicious we can share them together! 

Sweet Potato Cookies

Can you believe Enceladus just turned 8 months?  How time flies!  With month 7 came her craving for finger food!  No Mom, she doesn’t want to be fed with a spoon, she wants to feed herself! 

I admit, it does get a little messy when she feeds herself but it’s lots of fun to watch!  And honestly, nothing warms my heart more than to know she loves Mama’s cooking (she’s a big fan of my dairy free mashed potatoes too!). 

Homemade Teething Baby Cookies

Life has been filled with happy moments of “first foods”.  The messy first time she ate watermelon, the slippery first time she ate avocado, the sour face lemon taste, the happy face of tasting jam on toast,  etc.    Sweet potatoes have been a favorite of hers for a few months, but I had to figure out a way to serve them in a way that she could feed herself since she prefers finger foods over purees nowadays.  

HOMEMADE COOKIES recipe for baby led weaning and soothing a teething baby! These Sweet Potato cookies are made with mashed sweet potato, banana, baby cereal and oatmeal!   My favorite part is that these cookies are so delicious we can share them together! 

Baby Led Weaning Cookies

I felt like her breakfast choices were lacking so I got to thinking in how I could incorporate sweet potatoes in breakfast or a snack. I came up with these soft and yummy Sweet Potato Banana Cookies, perfect for baby led weaning eating adventures!

Chocolate Spinach Brownies

Chocolate SPINACH BROWNIES with Peanut Butter Frosting recipe.  This is a EASY way to get kids or adults to eat their vegetables.  You won’t believe how delicious these brownies are!  They’re also made with the best peanut butter frosting recipe ever!

The color green.  What do you think of?

In many people’s minds, the color green isn’t something you usually think of when you think of sweet desserts.   I hear that little kids fear their green vegetables so sneaky parents have to find ways to incorporate it into their meals.  Well I don’t have a little kid, but I still like being sneaky, even if it  means just being sneaky to myself.

This Summer I am ice cream crazy.  As you heard in another post we got a ice cream maker this Summer.  It’s been a beautiful experience and by beautiful experience I mean one full of danger and calories.   I’ve bought so many bags of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to make ice cream I believe I deserve stock in Hershey’s.    But with the ice cream comes calories.

The peanut butter frosting on top is what I consider the best frosting of all time – my family can’t get enough! If you’re looking for a chocolate birthday cake or holiday gift – make this cake! 

The season of gift giving is upon us and what’s a better way to say “I think you’re great, Happy Holidays!” than sending someone the gift of Chocolate Banana Cake With Peanut Butter Frosting?
healthy chocolate banana cake

I think sometimes the gift of homemade food is overlooked when it comes to the holidays.  Sure, you can brave the holiday lines at the department store to buy your sister those cashmere gloves you saw her eyeing up, but I can almost guarantee you that giving her a homemade cake will make her feel like the best (and loved) sister of all time!   A homemade cake is not only a physical gift, but there’s lots of emotional thought that goes into making it too! 

Did you know that psychologists have found that baking for loved ones promote a sense of well being not only for the recipient but for the baker as well?  Whenever someone gifts me a box filled with homemade cookies I still get weak in the knees and feel like it’s the most special gift ever!

First, let’s talk about this cake before we get to my favorite peanut butter frosting.

This is a Chocolate Banana Cake.  I want to tell you up front it is not “too banana-y”.  So if you have someone in the family that isn’t a big banana fan don’t be scared of this cake.  The cake is made with semi sweet chocolate chips and cocoa powder so it’s very decadent with chocolate.

Do you have a fear of ripe, brown bananas too? Maybe it’s because it’s Summer time but lately my bananas have been ripening at much quicker speeds than usual.  I like to eat bananas when they hit that perfect spot of just turning yellow – but no brown spots on them yet. The timeline for a perfect banana is slim.  Once it starts to brown and turn soft I can’t eat them “raw” anymore.  But that’s totally ok, because soft bananas are like the Cinderella of this story, except they don’t turn into a pumpkin at midnight, instead they turn into delicious cookies!

I love “1 Pint” recipes because often people aren’t picking or buying 8 cups of raspberries at one time.  If you see a deal on raspberries at the farmers market usually they are by the pint.  Same goes for garden harvest, often you pick 1 pint here, 1 pint there,  berries are so picky (no pun attended) so I’m not often picking them all at once.   This recipe only requires 1 pint of fresh raspberries which is approximately 2 cups worth.

Please talk to me and tell me why!”.  These cookies are perfect to grab and go, not only during the afternoon but during the middle of the night feeds and pumping too.

Jelly Donut Holes

 I have been craving donuts.  Bad.  I think I say at least once a day “I want a donut” and I really do want one.  I love chocolate donuts, peanut butter donuts, tea donuts, carrot cake donuts and more but I have a very soft spot for Donut Holes, especially when they are cinnamon sugar covered.  Oh and also when they are filled with homemade jelly that just smells like strawberries and Summertime.  These donuts you guys, they’re made of happiness and magic.

When I originally made these I thought they were going to last so that I could share with friends the following day, but they are so irresistible that they were gone rather quickly before sharing with friends.  So this week I’ll be making 2 more batches.. one for friends and one for us again.  They’re that good!
