  • Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

    Oregon’s berry bounty is impressive, especially in the summer. Wave after wave of variety comes into its own and it can seem overwhelming when the time comes to choose which one to work with, but after much deliberation, Nate and I think that we’ve finally decided on what our favorite is. Is it the plentiful, […]

  • Strawbanero Sorbet

    Sorbet gets a bad rap. “Why would you want to eat that when you could have ice cream?” “That‘s gross, no thanks. I’ll take the good stuff.” “Aww, I’m sorry that’s all they have for you…” Rude. I’m going to make something clear here. If you think that sorbet is gross, it’s because all the […]

  • Cookies & Cream Grows Up

    This monstrosity was borne out of wondering what to make for National Ice Cream Day. There were two schools of thought at first. I was thoroughly excited about making our very first chocolate ice cream, while Nate had his eye on experimenting with a cookies ’n’ cream. The time came to when we were wandering […]

We tried to come up with something that would feature strawberries since we keep seeing amazingly ripe ones floating around […]

  • Salty Peanut Butter Sundae

    WARNING: Do not make this recipe. If you make ice cream and realize how ridiculously easy it is to make, you won’t stop. We certainly haven’t. That said, we love us some peanut butter. There was this time where we were eating only low-fat protein and veggies, and on a whim we ate a spoonful […]

  • Salted Dark Chocolate Mousse

    We don’t spring for sweet things often. Like, ever. But when we do, it usually involves chocolate or peanut butter. We are excited to introduce our first dessert, which involves a healthy amount of delicious chocolate and super sexy sea salt. Mousse is a basic dessert that’s easy to make at home (with or without an […]
