The Best Ice Cream Milkshake Recipes

Ice cream milkshakes are a favorite summertime treat. Not only are they cold and delicious, they’re fairy easy to make. Simply mix three big scoops of your favorite ice cream flavor with 2 ounces of milk in a blend. Then add your favorite toppings! For a thinner ice cream milkshake, you can add extra milk. Alternately, if you are out of milk, try using an almond milk vanilla creamer in its place. You can also make a grown up version of your favorite ice cream milkshakes by substituting the milk with liquor instead.

The milkshake combinations, when you think about it, are almost endless. So whether you like your ice cream milkshakes spiked or kid-safe, topped with cookies or cotton candy, or drowning in caffeine, here are my favorite (mostly grown up) versions of ice cream milkshake recipes to try this summer.

Let’s Make Brown Sugar Drop Cookies!

When I was a little girl I baked with mom a lot. There are printed photographs still hanging around of me somewhere. My mom has numerous stashed photo albums from the 70s and 80s hidden in various boxes in her basement storage. In them are photos of me from about four years old on, baking cookies. Of course, in most of those photos I’m licking cookie dough batter off a spoon. Still, I still seemed to have grasped the concept of baking at a young age.

Not only did I learn that raw cookie dough is delicious. I also learned that if you want to eat raw cookie dough you had to actually make at least some of the cookies. These days, when I’m feeling lazy, I just pick up refrigerated cookie dough from the grocery store. Nothing, however, quite beats making homemade cookies from scratch. And I’ve found that by making something I enjoy eating, baking – and even cooking for that matter – really is a joy filled self care activity.

Back in the days when I was still under five feet tall and drawing with crayons was my favorite past time, I loved to bake snickerdoodles with my mom. You can of course roll these brown sugar cookies in a combo of cinnamon and sugar before baking them if you like. But these brown sugar drop cookies are actually delicious all on their own. And, this is a great cookie recipe to inspire a young (undiscovered) baker you may have in your own home.

Despite the name, these brown sugar drop cookies aren’t overly sweet. What they are, however, is pretty darn perfect. And quite frankly, I’ve never made an easier cookie. So, whether you’re getting back to your roots with some simple, old fashioned baking, or if you’re simply learning a new skill, this homemade brown sugar cookie recipe is a keeper.

Easy Homemade Doughnut Recipe & Other Tasty Treats

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

I love food. I also love doughnuts. Unfortunately, our local Krispy Kreme – who made the best donuts ever! – has shut down due a fire. They claim that they are planning to re-open in a new location – hopefully closer to downtown – fingers crossed – but have not yet found a new location. In the meantime, folks in Roanoke are writing parody news articles as well as freaking out a little. Rather than succumb to the chaos of a doughnut-less society, however, you can make your own even if – like me – you aren’t the best cook. While they probably won’t compare to the glory that Krispy Kreme holds in most Roanokers’ hearts, they do make for a tasty and fun afternoon with the kids.

Easy Homemade Doughnut Recipe via Cake Spy - Make Donuts From Canned Biscuit Dough - Great Family ProjectCakespy.com, a deliciously tempting blog that covers everything cakes, cupcakes and pies galore as well as explains why cupcakes are nutritious – I mean the sugar gives you energy, right? – offers up an easy recipe and tutorial for how to make doughnuts using refrigerated biscuits in a can (pictured above.) These fried delights are ready in 15 minutes or less and can be topped with any combination of icing, sugar or sprinkles you can imagine. Plus it’s the perfect project to do with stir crazy kids on an afternoon while they’re waiting for the rain to clear out. (Although the sugar could possible mean more chaos if the rain decides to hang on.)

Homemade Coconut Panna Cotta Recipe via Camille StylesIf you’re looking for a taste that’s still sweet but with a lot less sugar, then definitely try out Jess Simpson’s recipe for making Homemade Healthy Coconut Panna Cotta on Camille Styles Blog (pictured above.) It’s made with coconut milk, yogurt, honey and some delicious spices like nutmeg and ginger. I’m also crushing over the Summer Crush Drink Recipe made with gin, peaches, fresh basil, lime, Lillet, club soda and agave syrup.

Cooking and Baking with Mace – The Vintage Spice You’ve Never Tried But Should

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

Recently I read what I thought to be a rather interesting article on Etsy’s blog titled The Historic Spice Cupboard. It contained some really neat information on vintage spices – rather the spices our great and great great grandparents probably used – in cooking and baking. Some of the spices are still used today, while others are a lot less common. For example, mace, is not a spice I had ever heard of.
Cooking with spices - Mace(Photo Source: theKitchn)

I’ve always thought of mace as pepper spray so I was a little confused at first. But as it turns out, mace is a very close relative of nutmeg. Mace is actually the red membrane that surrounds the nutmeg seed. It’s very similar to the taste of nutmeg, but rather has a more red pepper reminiscent heat. It was very common in the 18th and 19th centuries, but has since fallen by the way side. Like nutmeg, it can be used in baking. However it is also served well in savory dishes for flavoring meats, stews, curries, savory sauces, and even homemade pickles. You can also use it in teas, tinctures and beverages.

Additionally, it’s believed that mace has an antioxidant effect in the liver, helping it conserve glutathione and increasing protection against free radicals. theKitchn has additional information on this amazing vintage spice. You can also find out more information on mace from Mountain Rose Herbs including both contemporary and folklore info.

If you want to try mace, be sure to buy it from a reputable source that guarantees that the powder is not made from previously BWP (broken-wormy-punky) nuts. It’s also better not to use an irradiated product which breaks down the fatty acids that contain the essential oils that give it aroma and flavor. Mountain Rose Herbs is great place to buy both whole and ground organic mace. In fact, I have it on my next shopping list of things to buy from them since it’s so versatile and can be used in so many different types of recipes. I’ve also found it to be a common ingredient in many Indian dishes.

Following are just a few of the many recipes I’ve found that can be made with mace:

Turkish Delight Recipe for the Narnia Lover in You

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

I love the books, The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis. I remember reading through the entire series in my school’s elementary library as a child. The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe was, and still is, my favorite book. I was thrilled when I saw the original movie as a child and so I was, of course, insanely excited when they came out with a new version of the movie in 2006. I actually went to see it in the theater, and that’s a rarity for me. So when I stumbled across a recipe for Turkish Delight, I just had to share it!
Turkish Delight from Sprinkle Bakes Blog
The author of Sprinkle Bakes Blog, Heather Baird, is also a huge Narnia fan. She was psyched when produced with the challenge for creating and featuring Turkish Delight on her blog in response to a birthday request from a girl turning 13. The result was a fantastic recipe for a sugary sweet, pink candy treat that can be made in the microwave! The ingredients for the recipe are simple. The candy recipe calls for cold water, cornstarch, sugar, corn syrup, pure lemon extract, powder sugar, ground pistachios, and little food coloring for that lovely pink. The rest is up to you. You can grab a printable recipe with the full ingredient list and recipe instructions from Sprinkle Bakes here.
