Today I have something special to share – It’s quite possibly one of the most delicious things I’ve ever had in a long time… Ever try ice cream cake? Well combine that with chocolate chip cookies and whipped cream and you’ve got something unforgettable! I decided to make this cake out of DREYER’S Frozen Custard that I found at Albertsons the last time I was grocery shopping. Frozen custard has a creamier texture, so I chose Old fashioned vanilla and chocolate malt as my 2 ingredients in this frozen treat.

This is a great dessert to take to BBQ parties and any other potluck events over the summer because it’s always a crowdpleaser. I mean how can you go wrong with frozen custard and chocolate chip cookies??

I made some home made chocolate chip cookies with my favorite recipe and let them cool completely. I also got my frozen custard ready by letting it soften on the counter for about 15 minutes. Its harder to spread when it’s too firm. You can even use one of those disposable tin pans to simplify cleanup for large parties, I used a fancy baking dish of my own.

First I layered the bottom of the pan with cookies breaking them apart to fit closely together, then I topped it off with a layer of DREYER’S Frozen Custard in Old Fashioned Vanilla. I added another layer of cookies and then topped that with DREYER’S Frozen Custard in Chocolate Malt.

Just to make it even more special, I thought I’d top it off with a layer of home made whipped cream. Using a pint of whipping cream and 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar, beat it on high speed until you have nice, stiff peaks. Spread on top of the layered dessert and freeze. Let it set for at least 4-6 hours or overnight

How to grill a pizza - #FlavorYourSummer #Cbias #AD

This past weekend was father’s day and we had a great day lounging at home and celebrating dad. In honor of that, We decided to cook out on the grill and enjoy some good times eating it all up as a family. Meats are not the only thing that you can cook on a grill – infact you can cook pretty much anything on a grill if you figure out how to not burn it! I decided to break out some frozen pizzas and enjoy those as starters before we made burgers later on. I picked up some of JACK’S® Pepperoni Original Pizza and NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® BUTTERFINGER® ice cream cones as treats from Walmart for our father’s day celebration.

How to grill a pizza - #FlavorYourSummer #Cbias #ADNow.. About grilling that pizza…

You don’t need to have one of those pizza stones in order to do this, all you need is a cookie sheet, tin foil and discarded coke cans. Here’s what I did:

First thing, I made a base out of aluminum foil because if it sat directly on the grill, it would burn before it was properly cooked. I used 2 sheets of foil and 3 empty coke cans to raise the pizza up off the grill.

And put it down on a very hot pre-heated grill.. I put the pizza on the cookie sheet, and placed it on top of the foil base, and closed the cover. I set my timer for 5 minutes to come back and check on it.

I rotated the pan 180 degrees (very important!) so it cooks evenly, and closed the cover again.

~ Another 5 Minutes Later ~

Much closer to where I need it to be – it’s starting to smell like a pizzeria back here! Time to keep a close eye on it, so I took a spatula and checked the bottom to make sure it wasn’t burned. It was nicely crisp and brown. Perfect!

I took it inside and let it sit for about 5 minutes before I take my pizza cutter to it. This allows the cheese to solidify a little bit , making nice triangle cuts of yummy pizza! Who can’t fall in love with a plateful of these?

Southwest Salsa Recipe with Hunts Diced Tomatoes #HuntsFreshTwists #Ad

A favorite summer recipe of mine is southwest salsa. It’s great with chips, soft tortillas, eggs, chicken – the list goes on. Its a blend of beans, corn & tomatoes that conjure up one of the healthiest tasty treats I know. I love it because all you need is a few ingredients and you can put together a fresh-mex snack in  no time flat.

Every couple of grocery trips, I like to stock up on canned tomatoes because I use them in so many of my recipes. I noticed that Hunts Diced Tomatoes came in so many new flavor varieties that I had to give it a try. Here’s a walmart coupon for you to use – Buy 3 Hunts Diced Tomatoes and get one free.

I thought that the fire roasted diced tomatoes would have made the best fit for my southwest salsa recipe. I picked up 2 cans, along with 1 can of black beans and 1 can of corn nibblets.

Here’s the full list of all the ingredients:

  • 2 cans of hunts diced tomatoes (I used fire roasted)
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of corn nibblets
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 sweet yellow pepper
  • 1 sweet orange pepper
  • 1 small onion, diced
  •  1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp salt

I started by chopping all my veggies and setting them aside in a large bowl. Then with a colander I drained and rinsed both the can of corn and black beans and combined it with the chopped veggies. Then finally, I opened both cans of Hunts Diced Tomatoes and added them to the mix without draining them. Season and add the cilantro and a couple of tablespoons of fresh squeezed lime juice and its ready to eat!

On its own, this is perfect to serve with some tortilla chips, but you can also take it a step further and dress up your food with it! I served my potato and egg fritata topped with this southwest salsa and it was amazing!
