Looks Delicious! No Churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Posted by in Looks Delicious!

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Looks Delicious! (No Churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream, submitted by TK member Anita of Hungry Couple)

July is ice cream month, so we can’t begin to entertain thoughts of August without featuring an ice cream recipe. As an added bonus, it has cheesecake in it, so that’s two desserts in one. Score!

This No Churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream from our lovely friend Anita is a special treat indeed. It’s simple to make, and there’s no custard to cook. You don’t even have to worry if you don’t have an ice cream machine, or if you’re like me and have stored your ice cream bowl somewhere in the basement and never remember to stick it in the freezer the day before. The cream cheese and condensed milk give it nice body and substance, so the ice cream stays smooth without the churning.

You can click on the photo above to get the printable recipe. Thanks for sharing this, Anita! Make sure you check out her TK recipe box, which is full of all kinds of creations both savory and sweet from her blog Hungry Couple. Oh, and did you know she has a cocktail blog as well? She’s all kinds of amazing.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Let’s Talk Zucchini!

Posted by in Kitchen Talk

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Kitchen Talk (Zucchini)

These days, when I walk into my local vegetable market, the bin holding zucchini is just a sea of deep green freshness. Sometimes, in the winter, you’ll see some sad-looking specimens. But not in the summer. I have a hard time resisting them, even though I usually still have a small supply at home. I can’t help it—fresh vegetables are my weakness. Especially since I’ve given up trying to grow anything in my backyard. (The deer and groundhogs won that battle.)

Whether you are fortunate enough to have zucchini plants in your garden, or like me, want to bring home way too much zucchini every time you head to the market, there’s no denying it: there’s zucchini everywhere. So let’s put that abundance to good use, shall we? Tell us:

What’s your favorite way to use zucchini?

I love grilled vegetables, like Ree’s Grilled Zucchini with Lemon Salt that you see in the photo above. Zucchini bread is another favorite, and I’ll sometimes add shredded zucchini to other baking recipes because I’m sneaky like that. As a bonus, the zucchini makes the end product moist, so I think that’s a win-win!

How about you? Do you have any favorite ways to use zucchini? Share your ideas with us below! And, as always, if you have a recipe link, share away!

Lemon Icebox Delight

Every summer, my family has a reunion where there are tables upon tables full of food and even more desserts. Naturally. Tasty Kitchen member Tonya knocked this family reunion classic out of the park. And if this Lemon Icebox Delight wasn’t perfect enough, it’s nearly no-bake! To make it truly a no-bake treat, just substitute pre-made graham cracker pie crusts!

The lineup of ingredients is pretty simple. Check it out!

Pour your graham cracker crumbles into a large bowl. Whisk in the sugar.

Next, add in the melted butter and stir until large crumbles form.

Once the graham cracker crumbles are formed, press them into the bottom of a 13×9 inch baking dish.

In the same large bowl that you mixed the graham crackers, mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Next, fold in half of the Cool Whip until incorporated.

Once it’s smooth, spread it over the top of the pressed graham crackers.

Now, it’s time for the second layer. Again in the same bowl as before, stir together the condensed milk and lemon juice. I ran out of lemons, so I used less lemon juice than called for. But it worked out just fine. I might even suggest it so that this layer isn’t too soft and you can spread out the final layer without it swirling too much.

Pour the mixture over the first layer. Looks gorgeous already!

Lastly, the final layer is the remaining Cool Whip! Cool Whip is one of my favorite treats, especially right out of the freezer. But I resisted eating the rest of it right out of the tub and put it on the bars.

Place these into the fridge to chill until ready to slice and serve.

Garnish with a bit of lemon zest to make it pretty. You and your family are going to fall very hard for these!

Be sure to check out Tonya’s TK recipe box and her site 4 Little Fergusons for more home-cooked inspiration. This Bistecca Pizza Al Forno is speaking volumes to me in particular!
