Noshing Local: Sweet Cowolines Elkton MD

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

Down a stretch of 213 in Maryland sits an abandoned golf course. The once pristine greens sit overgrown with grasses and the water holes have become a stunning trap as they hide beneath the growth just peeking out every so often to remind you not to venture too far. On the corner there is a gas station, one that makes the best fried egg sandwich you could ask for with a trusty mechanic, and across from it there is a restaurant I have never been in. It looks like one of those mom and pop places where friends could gather on Saturday morning… […]

Noshing Local: Woodside Creamery Hockessin, DE

Woodside Farm Creamery Hockessin DE

To say that we packed a lot of living into this weekend would be putting things lightly. I always feel like there’s more Handsome and I should be doing. Bigger adventures, things to be seen, places to go. Well, for one, we did not go to the Cecil County Fair. And that makes me kind of sad… But then I realize we went to Cambridge, Annapolis, Downingtown, and Media, worked, road, ran, snapped photos, and dined very very well. We laughed, enjoyed the company of good friends, played with the dogs, and even caught a few moments of Casino Royale […]

It’s full on into the dog days with the humidity rising and my schedule filling up. But you know what I can always make time for? A scoop or two of perfect creamy ice cream. I haven’t shared a Noshing Local post with you guys in a long time, and since it’s summer, I am hoping to do a full on series of fun local ice cream shops. Noshing Local, Ice Cream Tour… Yeah< I could get into that Our first stop, the UD Creamy in Newark Delaware. Can you believe in all my years here, it was my first […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

waffle_ice_cream23

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 […]

Ice Cream Sandwiches and a Graeter’s Ice Cream Giveaway

Ice_cream14

I got the best email the other day. It pretty much read, “would you like to sample some ice cream?” Um, yeah. Do you really need ask a girl if she wants to sample some ice cream? Might as well just send it and assume no one will turn down the mail man when he comes knocking. Graeter’s Ice Cream quickly shipped out 6 pints of their signature flavors in a sturdy styrofoam cooler with dry ice and it arrived pretty much over night and really …uh, annoyed Handsome by telling him we couldn’t eat any until I could figure […]

Hop into the Season with Me and My Robins Eggs Malted Milkshake

milkshake14

It’s normally not until after the holiday has passed before I look around my kitchen and realize that I have tons of themed candies that I didn’t use for the holiday at hand (maybe that’s because I don’t get pre-Valentine’s Day chocolate and the Easter bunny doesn’t show his cute little tail around here until Easter). I’m a squirrel so I’ll hold onto that darned candy as long as I can thinking that I will use it for the next go around – but we all know that’s not true. Come on, those peppermint kisses will never last until next […]
