Triple Chocolate Ice Cream

As I think I mentioned last week, Hurricane Arthur managed to cancel all of the 4th of July events last weekend.  That meant that yesterday, the 12th of July, became the night for fireworks and festivities at the waterfront.  The condo I’m in for the summer happens to have a perfect panoramic view of the fireworks show, making it the natural location for friends to come and watch.  Which, of course, meant I needed to bake.

Watermelon Sorbet

I find something oddly therapeutic about cutting fruit.  I think it started when I came back from college the first time and was beyond excited by the prospect of having fruit other than apples and oranges from the dining hall.  So when I went with my dad to the grocery store, we got just about every fruit you can get and I cut it all up and put it in tupperware in the fridge.

Peanut Butter Honey Ice Cream

Every once in awhile I make something that falls solidly into the category of too good.  Usually, I know it’s coming, and I plan accordingly.  For example, I know that I’m addicted to Magic Bars, so I made them while I was at my parents’ for a short period of time, knowing I could leave them behind.
