Rhubarb Strawberry Floats

As far as I’m concerned summer is here. We’ve had a couple weeks of gorgeous weather, I’ve got my garden planted, the neighbourhood splash park is open, and we’ve been having picnics like nobodies business.

Maple Brown Butter Semifreddo

I can’t believe I’ve never made brown butter before. I knew it wasn’t difficult to do, this was just the first time a recipe I was making actually called for it. Now that I’ve tried it, I think I just might be addicted. I’ve heard it a million times, but it really is amazing what…

No-Churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

No-Churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream is one of those things that leaves me drooling when I visit other sites. I have so many recipes bookmarked that if I ever bought an ice cream maker I wouldn’t even know where to start. The only thing that has kept me from making them is the extra effort it takes…
