Family Friendly Piña Coladas

Family Friendly Piña Coladas

Real talk guys, I am not diggin’ this heat right now. Summer is winding down, shouldn’t it be getting cooler? Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love summer, in fact it’s my favorite season. Flip flops, ice cream, barbecues, pretending I’m too bougie to swim […]

Gimme that Liquid Sunshine!

Gimme that Liquid Sunshine!

Fun fact: I used to work at a coffee bar on my college campus. Definitely one of my favorite jobs thus far. The fast paced environment, the whir of the blenders, the pshhh of the milk steamer…glorious. At the coffee bar we made various coffee drinks, […]

Gelato… Ciao bello

Gelato… Ciao bello

Happy Summer Solstice everyone! It’s officially the first day of my favorite season! Unfortunately for me, warm weather is just one more excuse for me to eat ice cream. I’ve been trying soooo hard not to eat ice cream like every single day.  Still trying to achieve that Summer body ya know? Well, the other day I had a moment of weakness. I was doing my grocery shopping and I thought that I’d just peek to see if any ice cream was on sale. Just…out of curiosity. Wasn’t planning on buying anything. Walked past Dreyers. Nope. Walked past Breyers. Nada. Turkey Hill…Store Brand…Ben & Jerry’s. Negative. But wait, what’s this? Talenti Gelato…Buy 2 for $7. It would be wrong not to get it!

This was my first time trying Talenti. This stuff ain’t cheap! But my friends have always said that this stuff is to die for. Let me tell you, I’ve found love in the frozen food aisle. This creamy magnificence is definitely Netflix binge watching material. Chill guys, I didn’t eat this all by myself. I shared the Caramel Cookie Crunch yesterday and believe it or not the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is still in the freezer (not for long!). I have to admit though, I found myself forgetting to share. The gelato is perfectly creamy with rich swirls of caramel woven throughout. As if that wasn’t bad enough, there are countless crunchy little cookie balls mixed in (can we get a yum in here?). You know the moment when you’re relentlessly scraping the bottom of the container with your spoon and the person next to you is saying “Hey, it’s gone.”? But you don’t want to listen to them because you don’t want to wake up from your ice cream induced coma. That may or may not have happened. But guys, I know I’m not the only one that does that. I know you do it to!

As I said before, Talenti isn’t cheap. But if my grocery store continues to have sales like this, let’s just say I’ll probably be wearing t-shirts to the beach this Summer.

Until next time food lovers!

Aggghhh who’s ready for Summer?! 🙂 I am! Me! This girl right here! It’s not feeling like Summer quite yet in Pennsylvania but I just can’t take it any longer. I’ve gotta break out the flip-flops. This is exactly why I need to go home guys. I […]

Beachy Delights: Part Two

Beachy Delights: Part Two

What does everyone absolutely have to have when they go to the beach? Nooo not the perfect beach body. ICE CREAM! Cold, sweet, creamy, drippy deliciousness. If you happen to go to Pacific Beach, I recommend trying something different than the average drip-droppy ice cream […]

Grilled to Perfection

Grilled to Perfection

I know we’re nearing the end of August, but don’t put those grills away just yet! I have a quick grilling tip for all of you that appreciate the sweet…the smoky…the barbecue. While grilling, I recommend using a smoker box. Why use a smoker box? A smoker box gives your food that nice smoky flavor and it keeps your wood chips from catching on fire as well. My dad (being the grill master that he is) purchased one for our family this summer. He picked up the Brinkmann Cast Iron Smoker Box from Home Depot for just $12.99.

Not a bad price for ensuring that your meat treats have that perfect summertime flavor!

Until next time food lovers!
