What makes an ice cream shop special? Homemade, local flavors. Delicious options for everyone's flavor palette. Creative ideas that keep you coming back for more. Salt and Straw has all these! A notorious name on the west coast, Salt and Straw has moved into the Seattle area within the past few years, and I recently had the opportunity to sample their fall "Student Inventor" series. Read along to see what I thought!
We recently added a KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment to our kitchen lineup, and are having a lot of fun with homemade ice cream flavors! This one we tried was a vanilla blueberry, and the base was so creamy I am sure we will use it for many other recipes to come! Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe and KitchenAid ice cream attachment info both in this post!
Summer 2017 is officially going by way too fast! We have already had the chance to do some super fun activities such as BBQ'ing out with friends, dined out on the waterfront in Kirkland, took our daughter to her first movie in Woodinville, and hit a concert at Marymoor Park. We have trips planned to Roche Harbor and Lake Chelan, in addition to plans to hit up Bumbershoot. What are we missing, and what are you up to Seattle?
The Halo Top fad... have you jumped on board? What are your thoughts? If you have not heard of Halo Top, it is a new, super low calorie ice cream that fitness fiends are going crazy over. My thoughts in post!
