Cherry Amaretto Ice Cream ~ Annie's Cooking Lab

Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream has always been a favorite of mine, and I’ve been dying to try making it at home. As soon as I saw a bag of fresh cherries in the grocery this spring I grabbed them up and immediately started on a batch of this ice cream. Pitting all the cherries takes some time, but it’s worth it! The amaretto flavor comes through really well in the ice cream and pairs wonderfully with the fresh, sweet cherries.

S’Mores Ice Cream Sandwiches

The Craving Chronicles

I’m going to be honest with you. I haven’t felt much like cooking or baking lately.

I don’t know if it’s the heat of the summer or if I’m just too caught up in summer-time fun and stuffing my face in other places, but I’ve just haven’t found myself motivated to make and blog new recipes lately.

I did throw these ice cream sammies together for some friends on the 4th of July though, and they were so good I think you really need to know about them.

S'mores Ice Cream Sandwiches

Who wants to stand over a fire roasting s’mores when it’s 100°F outside? Not this girl. So I made the ice cream version. The recipe is simple.

Toasted marshmallow ice cream + a fudge ripple, sandwiched between some almost-stale graham crackers.

S'Mores Ice Cream Sandwiches

That’s right. Stale graham crackers. Here’s the thing: I don’t like crunchy-crisp graham crackers with cold ice cream. Something about that…

Big C Juice

Allison Eats





For my birthday earlier this year, my parents banded together and bought me a Hurum slow juicer. I’d been aching for one for so long before I finally got this gift that keeps on giving, and we have definitely been making good use of it! I try to make a pitcher of juice every week and replace most breakfasts with a nice, cool, glass full. We haven’t gotten too adventurous yet with the juicer, but it does come with a very thorough recipe book that includes everything from baby food (no rush there!) to making crackers with the pulp.

Last week I was feeling a bit under the weather, and took a day off from work to recuperate. It worked out perfectly that I’d already bought the ingredients for carrot-orange juice, because a boost of C was just what I needed!

I decided to call this juice “Big…
