Easy to Make Espresso Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Dairy-Free

My espresso chip ice cream recipe is a no-cook, no eggs easy way to make dairy-free ice cream (dairy version included). It is slightly different from the ice cream I usually make. In order to create a fluffier, lighter texture, I whipped the cream full of air. It maintains a soft texture hours after it’s been frozen. It just might be my new favorite ice cream. Just don’t eat this too close to bed time or you won’t sleep a wink. Click here for complete easy to follow recipe!C. Smith http://thespoonandapron.com/...more

Red Enchiladas with Caramelized Onions

These enchiladas were by far an easy meal for a hot summer day with very little heat required. My sister came over for a summer swim in our pool, coffee talk, and mani/pedi time. We had a great day with wonderful laughs and good conversation. The kids played well together, and as always wear one another out. Every time I cook with my sister around, a funny conversation takes place. She hates to cook. Seriously hates to cook.
