Double Crunch Banana Split


I am sure most of you have had a banana split when you are little. Who can forget that creamy ice cream, ripe banana, sweetened whipped cream and chocolate sauce? It was always a delight to get that special treat.

Let me show you my twist on the classic banana split. It is a double crunch banana split. The first crunch is the caramelized sugar on top of the banana. It is like a cream brulee without the custard, but with a banana. It is light and you still get that incredible sugar crust! The second crunch is the chocolate magic shell. The smooth chocolate sauce turns into a hard shell when pour over cold ice cream. Combining both of these things with some creamy vanilla ice cream, this sure is a wonderful dessert to end a meal.

Roasted Strawberry and Buttermilk Ice Cream


Two weeks ago, I finally got a copy of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home. I should have got this two years ago. It is a bit late, but better late than never. I am so happy I got it. This is a cookbook for all ice cream lovers. The recipe steps are easy to follow. Not only there are 100 recipes, there are also all kinds of condiments recipes, like cake, brittle, ice cream cone, candy, and sauces. You can really make any ice cream you want with the help of this book. It is a must-have for ice cream fanatics! Buy it if you still haven’t got one!

I read through the whole book once I got it. And the one that screamed to me most was this roasted strawberry and buttermilk recipe. Strawberry season has just arrived. Nothing beat to have sweet and ripe strawberries to cook with. The roasted strawberries smelled and tasted amazing. I thought I would have eaten everything before I added them to the ice cream base. The ice cream came out very thick and creamy. The strawberry can be tasted and I really like the hint of tanginess from the buttermilk. What a perfect scoop of ice cream! I am sure you will like this too!

Thai Tea Ice Cream

After a good Thai dinner with chicken yellow curry and pineapple fried rice, it can’t be completed without a scoop of Thai tea ice cream. If you like Thai ice tea, you will love this ice cream. The orange color ice cream is vibrant and beautiful, and it is very creamy, cold with strong Thai tea flavors. Delicious! If you just want to make Thai ice tea too, read my recipe.

Duff Made Fried Ice Cream

Ice cream? Yum yum!!! Fried ice cream? Incredibly fun and delicious!!!!

I remember I first heard about fried ice cream when I was in elementary school in Hong Kong. There was a short story book about a little girl, Ann. I forgot what the story was about, but there was a part that mentioned Ann made fried ice cream. I was fascinated about that idea, and asked my mom how to make that. But of course, my mom didn’t know and I have never found out. Now, I have learned how to make fried ice cream. I may just try to make this someday. It sure looks good.

Who Stole My Ice Cream?

Have you ever lived in a dorm? Or have you ever had roommates?

If you do, you may have some experience with your food being stolen. It definitely wasn’t some great feeling. Bryan found this great lock online, which would prevent your ice-cream being stolen. Haha…. I love it! It is funny! It may seem a bit mean.
