Coffee and Doughnuts Ice Cream

Coffee & Doughnuts Ice Cream | browneyedbaker.com #recipe

It took me quite a bit of time to come around on both coffee and doughnuts (seriously, what kid doesn’t like doughnuts?!). I still won’t sit down and drink a cup of hot coffee, but last summer I officially jumped on the iced (and sweetened) coffee bandwagon. As for doughnuts… they’re still not my favorite pastry or sweet treat, but I’ll definitely enjoy one every now and then given the opportunity. I was totally inspired by the combination of coffee and doughnut flavors after seeing Jessica make this milkshake, and then seeing a similar concoction in Donna Hay magazine.

I infused ice cream custard with coffee beans (decaf!) and glazed doughnuts, then churned it and threw another doughnut in for good measure. Oh my goodness, yes!

Hot Artichoke-Fontina Dip

Artichoke-Fontina Dip | browneyedbaker.com #recipe

It’s been a solid six weeks since I made a new dippity dip, which is exactly five weeks and six days too long. If there’s one thing that I love almost as much as dessert, it’s the appetizer course. I could most definitely go out to a restaurant, skip a main dish, and just eat appetizers and dessert. They’re my two favorite food groups! (Yes, I classify them as food groups.) I’m not the biggest artichoke fan in terms of just eating them for the sake of vegetables, but chop them up and throw them in a dip and I’m 100% all in. Spinach-artichoke dip was my gateway drug to artichokes in savory, cheesy dips that I can deliver to my mouth with a variety of carbs. For this dip, I let the artichokes be the star of the show and threw in an obscene amount of fontina cheese, which melts beautifully and pairs well with the artichokes.
