I just cannot get enough of the sweet sweet summer fruit, especially when I can get it locally. Right now in New Jersey we are in the middle of blueberry season and that makes me very happy! We are going through several pints every week. I’m loving creating delicious recipes like this Nectarine Blueberry Crisp. I love fruit crisps, they are perfect for any time of year using whats in season. Served warm with some vanilla ice cream and you are set. A great dessert for any summer get together. …
SUMMER IS HERE FRIENDS!!! Anyone else feeling really excited?! I am so looking forward to long days on the beach with my boys, BBQs with friends and family, sitting around the fire pit and just hitting as many places on our Summer bucket list as possible. Now ladies, show of hands… who here has a secret stash of Skinny Cow Chocolatey Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches stocked at all time especially for those hot Summer days?!?! For me, I’ve always got at least a few boxes in our freezer and when I saw these NEW Skinny Cow Chocolatey Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches in Vanilla Bean Dream I knew I needed to add a couple boxes to my supply. …

Its very important that you make the apples first, they will need to cool completely. In a sauté pan, over medium low heat, add the butter and diced apples. Stir in the cinnamon and cook for approx 10 minutes, until the apples are slightly softened. Cool completely!
In a bowl, using a hand mixer, mix the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved, a couple minutes.
Using a spoon, stir in the cream and vanilla. With the ice cream maker on slowly pour in the mixture. Allow it to run for about 20 minutes or until it has slightly thickened.
Keeping the ice cream maker on, slowly add in the apples. Allow the ice cream to churn for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the consistency resembles a starting to melt soft serve ice cream.
At this point the ice cream will appear a little bit loose. Shut off the ice cream maker and spoon the ice cream into an air tight container and place it in the freezer. This will allow it to harden and then you can go ahead and scoop away!
