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 […]

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 […]

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

  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 […]

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 […]

Peanut Butter Oreo Popsicles

Oreo_Peanut_butter_pop17

I’m sure I have burnt everyone out this summer on popsicles, but pity me for I am ice cram maker-less. (Not that I can really complain, because I don’t have a vast amount of space in the freezer for it anyway.) But the chimes have rung out in my mind and I am scurrying to get up all the summer fun posts I have been squirreling away before the leaves change. It was like a silent alarm went off in my head this weekend as I started contemplating holiday gifts. There’s no birthday, no real celebration after mid-September on until December in our family. Everyone […]

Tequila Rose Popsicles

Tequila Rose Popsicles

This is a public service announcement. First and foremost, it’s my birthday month so we have to party down.  Which also means you should also all be actively trying to convince Handsome of all the awesome kitcheness I can’t miss out on – or anything else for that matter. Secondly, I wanted to show off my awesome new Recipe Index. Oh yeah, it pays to be your own designer some days. Course, if I wasn’t I would of had one a lot sooner that I would have to update manually (though I’m sure you wouldn’t have cared bout that).;) I […]

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Alright, let’s not beat around the bush, it’s hot out. But you share a space on this wonderful planet with me and already know that. In case you had a moment to forget about it seems to be all the news cares to talk about at the moment and Facebook is filled with posts updating me on the status of Mother Nature. Guess what guys, she’s still PMSing so lets move on. Time to whip out the old slip and slide and embrace things. You can even be real classy and run down to the Walmarts pick yourself up a […]

Lazy summer days: Honeydew Popsicles

honeydew_pop3

Some days it’s all about kicking back and enjoying things at a slower pace. Looking at the clouds, letting the birds sing and just taking in some sunshine. I have a problem doing that. I always feel like there’s something else to cook, work that needs to be done, photos to be processed, a house that needs to be cleaned or a dishes that need to be done (very very guilty of the dishes one). It’s hard to make myself sit still and unwind but I’m quickly realizing it needs to be a mandatory part of the day. The other […]
