Woodfire Grill. Our meal was excellent but the last course, dessert, was so-so. Good thing I came prepared and had baked a cheesecake for the occasion. My mother-in-law's favorite cake is cheesecake, hence all the cheesecake recipes I have on my blog.
City Bakery's hot chocolate topped with a big fluffy marshmallow. Although homemade marshmallows seems rather easy to make, I still fear it. I fear making candy in general, probably because I've come very close to burning down my kitchen one too many times. Finally, I just bit the bullet and created these beautiful, fluffy clouds of sugar.

With this cross-country heat wave, we need some homemade ice cream to cool us down. These scoops are not your ordinary chocolate and vanilla flavors.
Last week, we got a ton of melons and basil from our CSA, so I combined the two together with some eggs and cream and came out with the most refreshing treat ever. The other concoction is not quite an ice cream but an ice milk. What is ice milk? Pretty simple, instead of the cream, I used milk for a lighter version of my favorite summer indulgence.
