Well, my twinners are now 9 weeks old and doing great!! And after a 3 month blogging break I am back in the kitchen and cooking again!
I've noticed that some new people are beginning to read my blog and I hope they will come back now that I'm getting it going again. Feel free to leave comments, questions and suggestions on posts! Also, you can click on the right hand side of the page and become a follower! When I first started this blog I had hoped that it would become a community where women could talk about cooking, decorating, cleaning, books, kids, etc. I hope that now that my health has returned and I'm able to update more that we can get that going again.
So...Let's start it off right with a yummy summer treat! I got this fried ice-cream recipe from my Mom. We usually have it for the 4th of July but with all the goings-on this year, I hadn't made it all summer. So it was a great treat last weekend. I hope you enjoy it too!
Fried Ice Cream
3/4 cup butter (melted)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 cups rice krispies
1 1/2 cup coconut (shredded and sweetened-in the baking aisle)
1 1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 half-gallon containers vanilla (I usually only use about half of the second half-gallon)
1 1b. strawberries (sliced)
1 container strawberry glaze (you can usually find this in the produce section. It comes in a small container about the size of a normal sour cream container)
Remove ice-cream from freezer and allow to soften while you make the topping. Melt butter in a large pot. Add brown sugar and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add rice krispies, coconut, and chopped pecans. Press 2/3 of mixture into a 9x13 pan. Spoon softened ice cream into pan and level. Top with remaining cereal mixture. Freeze at least 1 hr. Meanwhile, stir sliced strawberries with strawberry glaze and refrigerate.
Remove ice-cream from freezer 5 minutes before cutting. Top with strawberry mixture and serve!
