Seattle Food Tour & Boozy Sweet Potato Pie Milkshake

And a Seattle Weekend Recap A few months back Peabody, Erin and I tossed out the idea of a weekend get together, and since I am all about random acts of awesome lately, we made it happen. So, what happens when you put 3 totally hot food bloggers with only one man and a puppy in a mecca of organic seasonal and fresh food? We sit in our PJs and watch Magic Mike and Bad Words til all hours of the morning. Duh. And eat… a lot. Seriously, we were on a mission to pack as much food into 2 days as […]

Double Peanut Butter Butterfinger Pie

Big exciting new things are happening.  I will be joining a team of photographers in December on a workshop in Cambodia. We will not only photograph the stunning Angkor Temples and Tonle Sap river, but we will be working with Anjali House. Anjali House supports the children of Cambodia with education, healthcare, food and clean water. To say that I am exciting would be putting things mildly. I don’t have the slightest clue where to begin when preparing for a trip such as this, how to pack, or what photography equipment I am going to need. And I don’t care. It will […]

Bourbon Spiked Malted Milk Ice Cream

It’s mid August, but I’m net letting summer slip away without a fight! There’s still ice cream to be enjoyed, sprinkles to be had, and in this case, a topping palooza to bring down the house. First, I jazzed up some malted milk ice cream with a little bourbon to keep it smooth and delightful then I went to town creating an ice cream bar with more toppings than I could handle! Whipped cream, hot fudge, cherries, caramel corn, malted milk balls, and caramel waffle cookies (hello Whole Foods, have all the moneys).  All and it made for a fun […]

Roasted Blueberry Graham Cracker Crumble Frozen Yogurt #AllThingsDairy Giveaway

Roasted Blueberry Graham Cracker Crumble Frozen Yogurt | Passthesushi.com

It’s Dairy Month! And dairy is the one food group that I am all about. Growing up, we didn’t keep much fruit juice or soda in the house. Every meal was paired with a tall glass of cold milk. And even as an adult, I love cold milk with pizza and peanut butter and jellies. Smoothies filled with Greek yogurt, tons of spinach, and fruits to power me through my day. And I am 100% guilt of a slice of sharp cheddar cheese to pair with my piece of dark chocolate before bedtime.  Needless to say, getting my 3 servings daily […]

Tagalong Bourbon Shakes for One

Tagalong Bourbon Shakes \ PasstheSushi.com

Is everyone else ready for the weekend? I know I am. I am second shooting a wedding at the beautiful Delaware History Museum and planning on spending Sunday taking my sweet time, sipping on one (or possibly two) of these deadly little girl scout cookie inspired Tagalong Bourbon Shakes and mandating some much needed sit on my booty around the fire time off. It’s been all hands on deck, with no sign of things slowing down in the future – and you know what? I am ready for it. Excited for it. I’m excited about a lot of things these days…. […]

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Pops with RumChata

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Pops with RumChata | PasstheSushi.com

We’re almost there… Only a few more weeks until summer vacation. Kids are out, schedules slow down, vacations are to be had, and beaches are to be enjoyed. Yeah right! My schedule never slows down. But hopefully you are in final countdown mode and are looking forward to all things warmer weather and longer days are bringing. Me, I’m just hoping to make it to my Cinco de Mayo festival on time! Cuz I am totally bringing these Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Pops… especially after I added a little RumChata to them… And then added a little more. If they […]

Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream

Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream from PasstheSushi.com

Spending half of the summer off my beloved mountain bike and learning to road ride I have decided to add one more goal to my season this year. A 100 mile road ride this Saturday for Bike to the Bay, a fundraiser for MS. There will be a lot of people, the day will start off chilly, and I’m guessing it’s going to take me 6 hours to do this. Mentally, I’m already psyching myself out. The other part of me just keeps making jokes that it’s all downhill since we are headed towards the water Handsome and I are […]

Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream

Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream from PasstheSushi.com

I may or may not have put another tally mark on the calendar the other day and decided to treat myself to a little something something (I may have also gone on a crazy shopping spree via ModCloth and Sephora as well…. ). A birthday always means cake and sprinkles – and well – I think I definitely wiped up an ice cream that covers all those bases and then some.I’m not sure if it’s because my birthday is at the end of summer, and that whole back to school nationwide panic hits everyone with a to do list, or […]

Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream – a super series summer finale

Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream from PasstheSushi.com

My first official race season is over. It all started last July with the novice race at Fair Hill. I was only able to participate in 4 mountain bike races this season due to my injury while running back in June. Overall, I would have loved to have mountain biked more, ran more, and been able to tell you I was some sort of sport ninja that rocked the house. Truth is, this season ended with far more bruising and a step back on that groin injury as my final race this season had three major falls, chain came off […]

Capt’n Crunch Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Captain Crunch Chocolate Chip Ice Cream from PasstheSushi.com

Things Ive learned recently: You aren’t supposed to wear underbritches under riding gear. Seriously, no one told me. How was I supposed to know. Someone tried to justify that with ‘if it comes with built in anything you don’t need to’. Um really? Cuz those tanks with built in bras simply do not work for me. Decided that this is the time to start changing your life is terribly empowering. About an hour later, its absolutely terrifying because you stop day dreaming and start realizing just exactly how much work that is going to be. And how costly. Why does […]

Farmer’s Market Sweet Corn Ice Cream

Sweet Corn Ice Cream from PasstheSushi.com

Back in my days of hocking jewelry to the highest bidder, there was a small Mexican ice cream shop down the street that would often draw my attention. They were always open, always had people in, and always had a variety of flavors that sounded amazing. Sadly, I never did stop in to that small ice cream shop… But lucky me, I found a recipe for one of their famous flavors, Sweet Corn Ice Cream. We have had a great selection of corn coming in this season from our local farmer’s market and I knew with my weekly goal being […]

Melon Granita

Melon Granita from PasstheSushi.com

This last week was amazing. Fast. A blur. But amazing. A huge thank you to all the bakers, bloggers, and bidders who helped us raise $2812 in the Muffins for Muffin Bake Sale for Response-A-Bull Rescue!! Every item we had up for auction went, bids started coming in before the auction even went live and continued to fill my inbox all day long. My wonderful clients and friends at Captain Blue Hen picked out cupcakes and muffins and donated as well – and showed a ton of patience as I managed the bake sale while trying to ring them up. There […]

Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches

Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches via PasstheSushi.com

Nothing screams summertime like an ice cream sandwich. And I have been quite shamefully indulging in my fair share of ice cream sandwiches this summer. From chipwiches to these red velvet ice cream melts, I’ve had more ice cream in the past 4 weeks than I have had in the past 4 years. But I bike now… so I’ve earned it… or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. So, after a long day of web work, slinging comics, and riding, these creamy, sinful ice cream sandwiches are perfect. And melty. But perfect. The ice cream isn’t really an ice […]

Chocolate S’mores Parfait

Chocolate Smores Parfait from PasstheSushi.com

4th of July rocked, even though the fire works were cancelled and the locals decided to make their own. Sending my dog into fits… We had a happy and safe forth doing the things we love, riding and cooking. We got to relax and enjoy ourselves and have our first real ‘day off’ in forever. Even on normal days off, there’s always a web client and a side project that needs to get done for Handsome. But today, we really took the day off. Now if only I had remembered a little sun screen. Onto something to sink your summer […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream from PasstheSushi.com

It’s Monday – and the first day of summer! And that should mean a new weekly theme for the next 12 weeks on PtS… But, it doesn’t. Part of me wants to promise epic sandwiches for the theme, but I know that that’s happening over at Girl Carnivore, and part of me was thinking frozen treats, but I would need to invest in more cook books and I’m feeling cheap, and part of me was thinking Monday noshings, as I tend to bring treats to the Monday night group ride but I didn’t have any to share with you today. […]

Strawberry Basil Gelato for Pass the Cook Book Club

Strawberry Basil Gelato from PasstheSushi.com

Here’s a little something from your childhood that grew up just in time to save your taste buds from another happy hour disappointment at the local Sonic. (Maybe that’s just my local Sonic). And it’s another month of the Pass the Cook Book Club. My little club is finding it’s feet – and I’m finding I need to be a little more organized. But in the end, sharing recipes together is a blast! I’m always curious to see what others are making (and nosy so that I pick something yummy). All the other group members are great and I am really enjoying reading […]

Peanut Butter Banana Pops

Peanut Butter Banana Pops from PasstheSushi.com

Spring has sprung. The first touch of 80+ degree weather came and went and now it’s just a race to hot and humid summer days. I have scaled back some promotions on the site because I didn’t want to become ‘that blog’ (said with my blogger nose in the air as if I’m above free swag and not just too busy to write a proper review these days) but I wanted to share a few products that have quickly become staples in my pantry in the past few weeks.   Desert Pepper Salsa – HOLY WOW. That is all I […]

Eggnog Frangelico Gelato & Hand Made Ice Cream Scoop Giveaway

EggNog_Frangelico_IceCream_0223a

You know that old saying that nice things come in small packages? Well that’s what comes to mind with today’s post. Even though the end of the year has been kind to me with the current BigKitchen Le Creuset giveaway going on (and another surprise giveaway next week) today’s giveaway is very special to me. It may not come in a bright orange box, and Santa can’t sneak it down the chimney, because this one is hand made just for you by my man. If you are a long time follower of Pass the Sushi, or one of the many friends in […]

Brown Sugar Brandy Ice Cream

brandy_vanilla_ice_cream_0175

13.4 miles. Not my hardest ride or the longest time I have spent riding, but my furthest distance. Solo. The thing about riding solo is that I am not fighting to keep up. I am around no one. It’s me and the brisk morning air for miles. And I thought for some reason you may care to know what it’s like in this koko for cocopuffs mind of mine. Mile one is pretty boring. I push hard to stretch my legs and work out the soreness left from yesterdays workout. Mile two is the same, just peddling to pedal. My […]

Piña Colada Frozen Yogurt

Pina_coolada_froyo_0267A

The yogurt fairy came, and not just any yogurt fairy, but the fancy pants Chibani yogurt fairy came! And what does one do with 6 giant sized containers of yogurt? Well, after eating a lot of yogurt, one makes frozen yogurt, because one (and I’m not saying who) just realized not too long ago that ice cream and other frozen ice cream like desserts were super easy to make. So, thank the kind people of Chobani for including nice chunks of real fruit in their yogurt and helping me decide what the next item to fill my freezer.   Did […]

Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut_butter_pie_0199

  Recently while hunting down some font’s via the wonderful world of Pinterest I came across a few sites that really caught my eye. Going Home to Roost How About Orange Aerialist Press & Design Editor All of these sites  have great collections of posts, fun fonts, adorable DIY, fashion tips and a lot more. If you are in need of a break from food blogs, go check them out. I’m not very fashion forward, don’t make my own anything (other than food), and cute is something that I just can’t seem to come by. But in my imaginary play world where […]

Double Chocolate Liqueur Ice Cream

chocolate_ice_cream_0586

Ok guys, don’t laugh. I know I am late to the game with this ice cream thing, but seriously, why didn’t any of you tell me how easy it was? For those of you who have yet to bite the bullet and try the whole ice cream churning at home, stop what you are doing and go get yourself an ice cream maker now. I don’t care if you are at work, close the work window down, open a new tab over at the amazon and order yourself one. Better yet, just stop on your way home from work and […]

Chocolate Martini Pudding Pops

tini_pops_0019

Yeah, you that right. Chocolate Martini Pudding Pops. Bring on the heat. Bring on the raging dog days of summer, the long mountain bike rides, and all the sweat. Because when you have a batch of these rich chocolate frozen treats waiting for you at home, it’s all worth it. Slushed is a perky recipe collection of 150 ‘Frozen, Boozy Treats’ and at first flip through the pages I was hooked. Technical Level: If you can crack an egg, you can make the recipes in Slushed. There is nothing complicated about the instructions or recipes. The most you will have […]

Samoa Tartlets

Samoa_tarts_0391

About 5 years ago, with the horrid economy looming over head, I was lucky to be laid off. I left a job that I had come to think was important, I was making very good money and had been since I was fresh out of high school, the savings account was well stocked, and I was on my own. It seemed like the perfect sort of life. With all that around me, I wasn’t aware of how miserable a person I had become. Without warning I said my good byes to some very kind people, flipped some other people the […]

Fruity White Sangria Pops

fruity_wine_pop_0013a

You know that old saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say…”? Well I guess that doesn’t apply to the internet. Something about the perceived anonymity gives peoples brass enhancements and lures them into saying things they would never say in person. Something about the web makes people brazen and a wee bit ridiculous. I see a lot of my fellow blogging friends brought down by rude comments and either I just don’t write in a way that makes people want to comment or my spam filters are excellent at picking up on BS, but I don’t get that many nasty comments. I […]

Red Velvet Milkshake and Tart Mascara Review

Red_velvet_milkshake_0041A

Let’s get a little sassy today. Not sure what came over me, but this post is full on pink, girly, and packed with flavor. The moment I knew I wanted to make this spunky little milkshakes I was envisioning a great Valentine’s Day post…. Well, obviously missed that opportunity. Boys, turn away, and girls, let’s get girly! Pull out your snappiest pink nail polish, some awesome lip gloss and check out this Tart mascara. The next mascara up in my Sephora box of lash lovin’ was Tart Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara. At first I was put off by the overwhelming smell of […]
