Extra Sticky Thai BBQ Ribs w/Peanut BBQ Sauce + Sweet Thai Ginger Slaw.
How about some Tuesday ice cream?
Hey, there’s strawberries in it. In my book that means it’s a well-balanced snack. Making it perfect for the 3:30pm munchies. At least to me anyway.
Basically, this ice cream is my mood stuffed into a sweet little waffle cone, dipped in chocolate and piled high with strawberry ice cream. Typically I go for the chocolate, and I will still probably choose an indulgent chocolate cone over a fruity one, but today I am just feeling like I need to branch out a little and step away from the chocolate (at least for an hour). Plus, I am just loving everything about the month of June and we are only three days in. I am so in a summer mood, like all the time.
I think it will become pretty obvious, pretty fast just how cheery and well, colorful I am feeling.
One of the things I am finding that I love, is that with the changing seasons brings new inspiration as well as new moods. By moods I only mean that things in summer feel so much brighter and prettier than my mood in say, the winter, when things feel cozier and darker. I am having a hard time coming up with the right words, but basically I think it is cool how my changing moods reflect across the blog.
I think you can really see this change, mainly in my photos. Right now I am just loving adding color and brightness to everything. I am having so much fun setting up summery scenes and trying to convey what feeling I am going for with that particular food. I am still learning and figuring out what works and what doesn’t, so am not loving everything, but you never learn and improve if you don’t keep trying and changing, right?
I think that most foods come along with a stereotype or a certain scene associated with eating them. Like when I think of a turkey sandwich I think about picnics. BBQ chicken and ribs are a backyard BBQ. Watermelon conjures up a hot summer day by the lake or a field of green grass. Ice cream makes me think of walking down a board walk.
Summer foods are just naturally colorful, juicy and attractive. In summer, food can have fun because in general, everything is just more laid back.
Let’s be honest, summer food is the best!
Hello?!?! Fields and fields of fresh berries, ice cream at every corner!
The point of this ridiculously long, and probably super confusing to anyone but me, conversation is that summer is fun and I am loving creating summer foods.
It’s making me super happy. Well, that and I leave for Florida in 15 days. I am SO READY for vacation. Cannot wait!
Until then I am making all the ice cream I can! And um…YOU SHOULD TOO!!
You need to give this ice cream a try simply because it’s awesome and well… you need it. The kid inside of you needs it.

I mean, I am not messing around here it. Oh, and dip your cones in chocolate. It’s the way to go.
There were two ingredients listed with the ice cream items that weren’t mentioned in the recipe itself and it would also be helpful to know what size her ice cream maker is (we weren’t sure if we’d have to split the ingredients once ready into two batches for the machine but have decided to just wing it and go for it). Otherwise, the recipe, while a bit involved, is so far pretty easy and the individual elements taste good.
So sorry, which ingredients are missing? For the ice cream maker it really doesn’t matter what size you use, it will work in batches if needed. Let me know how it turns out! xTieghan
The sea salt and the vanilla extract aren’t mentioned in the custard instructions. (And maybe it’s supposed to be vanilla extract if you aren’t using a vanilla bean pod?
Sorry for any confusion, you can add both of those to step 2. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try! xxT
Excellent flavor, very sophisticated. I love the Graham cracker pieces in there, too. Your recipes are all fabulous, I love your talent. Thank you for sharing it with us!
Wonderful!! I appreciate you taking the time to make this recipe, I am so glad it was a hit! Happy Wednesday:)
Great recipe. Really rich flavor. Has an almost caramel quality to the flavor of the custard. My kids loved it. It tastes like something you would find in a very fancy ice cream shop.
Happy Sunday! Thanks a bunch for giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! xTieghan
Tieghan, you’re so good at fancifying recipes. I’ve got to admit, I’ve never made any of your food because most of the treats look like they’ll take me more time than my two babies can give me for cooking every day, but goodness, this ice cream makes me want to hire a nanny and get ‘er done! Looks dreamy delish!
Haha! Promise they are not all time intense.
