Duet: Strawberry Ice Cream / Prince “Purple Rain”

The food: We were gifted a KitchenAid stand mixer with the ice cream maker about a year ago (thanks, dad!). Since then, I’ve been experimenting with recipes in hopes of figuring out the easiest way to get creamy delicious homemade custard. I think this fits the bill. Using this basic recipe, you can create almost any kind of ice cream in less[…]

Chocolate Cookies / INXS “Kick”

Interesting fact: There’s nothing German about the cake or[…]

Duet: Triple Chocolate Crispy Treats / Go-Go’s “Beauty and the Beat”

The food: Growing up and developing a sophisticated palate is wonderful. Now that I’m 40, I love pâté, brussels sprouts, Chardonnay, and much more that I’d have hated as a child. Just because I now appreciate the finer things, however, doesn’t mean I’m ready to eschew all of my lowbrow childhood favorites. No matter my age, I hope to always get a little giddy at the sight[…]
