Easy Ice Cream Cake

Easy Ice Cream Cake

I Love Breyers ice cream. It is practically the only one that I will buy anymore. I have actually gotten efficient with making gluten-free cakes on my own, but ice cream cakes are much easier and they are delicious. This one uses two containers of the same flavor, but I love to mix and match as well. Chocolate raspberry swirl goes great with coffee ice cream, for example.

2 containers Breyers Neapolitan ice cream
1 container chocolate fudge magic shell
1 c. heavy cream, cold
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. almond extract

Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it warm up for about fifteen minutes before you start. In a nine-inch spring form pan that you have placed on a plate spread the first container of the ice cream in a flat layer and then return it to the freezer. Leave it there for five minutes before taking it out and drizzling a layer of magic shell over the top. Return it to the freezer again and let it chill for another ten minutes. After ten minutes spread the second container of ice cream over the top of the first. Return it again to the freezer for another ten minutes.

Make the whipped cream by mixing the heavy cream in a medium bowl on high speed. Use a spatula to swipe off the sides of the bowl. When the cream has started to thicken add the sugar, then the vanilla and almond. Stop whipping the cream when it reaches a thick consistency.

Take the cake out of the freezer again, and spread the whipped cream over the top. Return to the freezer for fifteen minutes before topping it with a final layer of magic shell. Let it chill in the freezer until the magic shell hardens and then cover it with plastic wrap to store. Remove the cake from the freezer about ten minutes before serving. Enjoy!

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…

The Power Of Willful Ignorance

I watched a woman say these words in a speech a few moments ago and nothing could be more true...willful ignorance is insanely powerful. Willful ignorance is the reason that good German people allowed their neighbors to be dragged off by the Nazis in the middle of the night. It is the reason that American people choose to believe our homeless are lazy and irresponsible instead of facing the reality that their situations have arisen because of widespread mental illness and cooperate greed. It is the reason that you will pick up a steak on your way home from work tonight, not bothering to find out where it came from, because you just don’t want to know. The truth is too disgusting.
I have gone on about the meat industry quite a bit and my goal here is not to do that. I love to eat meat, I will state that again, but the example that comes from our consumption of factory meat is so powerful when it comes to explaining willful ignorance that I want to use it. Out of ALL of the many, many,…

Christmas in Florida

Christmas in Florida
December tenth today and I swam my thirty laps in the pool. It’s pretty chilly, but I don’t really feel it after the second lap. I am so grateful that I am able to keep swimming this late into the season. My body responds much better to swimming than it does to running, and I still get a great cardio work out.
This is our seventh or eighth Christmas in Florida now. To be honest, it wasn’t much of an adjustment for me. I have lived in climates where we got tons of snow. I even graduated from high school in Northern Michigan, but I really don’t miss it. I am a worrier, so snow just makes me think of bad roads and car accidents. I think snow is absolutely gorgeous, but I don’t like the cold. I would be perfectly happy if snow stayed on mountains. I would visit it to ski.
I finally convinced my husband for the first time this year that we really did not need a tree. He is partial to real ones, and I have no real love for artificial trees. Not once in all of the years…
