Lemon, Honey and Ricotta Ice Cream

It's ice cream season! Not that ice cream goes out of season. But, there is something incredibly satisfying about eating an ice cream cone on a sunny day.

Speaking of eating ice cream cones, let's get our technique straight. This is important. Do not bite into your ice cream cone, because that's barbaric. Tilt your head slightly, and lick while rotating the cone.

Concentrate on the bottom to catch the drips, but don't let the top get too top-heavy. Keeping the scoop of ice cream even is important. Why? Well, because I'm OCD when it comes to eating ice cream cones...obviously :).

Honeydew and Coconut Popsicles

There was a time when my dad went through a major Otter-Pops phase. On dreary weekends, I remember him eating them like popcorn during movies. Of course I joined in occasionally, reaching mostly for the purple or red flavors. The best part was when the pop had melted a bit, and you got to suck the sugary-goodness out of the plastic tube. Ah, simple pleasures.

Lazy Sunday Links

Happy Sunday all! Today I'm going to be spending the day with my mom, grandma and sister to celebrate my (late) birthday. I'm also going to be putting together a post for some popsicles. Oh, and Game of Thrones season finale, but that goes without saying. Hope you have a great Sunday, here are some links to start browsing.

Roasted Red Pepper, Basil & Salami Grilled Cheese

The past few weeks I have been trying to eat a lot healthier. I have also been going to the gym, and it feels great. But every now and then, you gotta indulge. Sometimes, you need to stop counting calories, and just enjoy something really decadent. Treat yo self, ya know?

Speaking of the gym, why is it so dang hard to go? I always enjoy it when I'm there, and I feel great it's over, but I really drag my feet when it comes to getting in that building. What helps motivate you to go to the gym? Wait, back to treating yourself!
