Happy summer, folks!!

Don’t argue, because it is soooooo summer right now.

I don’t even care if it’s actually still two weeks away, Florida got the memo early, as usual.

We even had an out-of-season tropical system brewing a few weeks ago! I mean, really.

Go home, Mother Nature, you’re drunk.

Typical for Florida, really, but extremely unwelcome. It’s only May! This doesn’t bode well for the actual summer season, I imagine.

I suppose it’s a good thing I received an ice cream attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer last year! I can see it getting put to use over the next few months. Ugh, few, what am I talking about. It won’t cool off until October!

Might as well get started now. How about a twist on a famous German cake in this cold. refreshing, and liquored up Black Forest Ice Cream? [Read more…]
