This became my indulgence over the summer, home made ice cream! I’ve never been one to eat ice cream by itself, but rather alongside cake or pie, that is until I started making my own. This summer I made so many quarts of ice cream I can hardly count, but one of my favorites was this dark rich chocolate ice cream. I love the pure chocolate taste which is creamy and melts in your mouth like smooth pudding. I found this ice cream stands on it’s own and you won’t need anything else to satisfy those chocolate cravings.

It’s good to be back after a few weeks. Joe and I went to the East Coast and enjoyed some sun and sand, some hiking, and took in some historical sites. It was wonderful but at the same time exhausting. We walked many a mile each day while taking in every moment. It’s taken a good week to get back in the groove back here at home. Since we’ve been back the weather has cooled down considerably. The clouds and rain have descended upon us and makes me yearn for a bowl of chowder. Looking for something a bit healthier and vegetarian I went with some zucchini, corn and green chile. It was packed with flavor and spice which was just what I was looking for. I added a bit of finely grated Oaxaca Mexican cheese which melted perfectly and made the chowder extra creamy. I was hoping it would last for a day or two but someone found it in the wee hours of the night and it was gone by morning. Wonder who that could be?? I’ll give you 2 guesses!
