Scoops Ahoy: Stranger Things Ice Cream at Baskin Robbins!

Stranger Things are happening at Baskin Robbins I’m almost too excited to even write this post. If you haven’t seen Stranger Things on Netflix, please watch it and report back. I was late (read: years late) to the Stranger Things party because no one ever properly explained how awesome the show is to me. Stranger…

Ice Cream Party on the Dock

Thank you Brawny® Tear-A-Square® for sponsoring this post. Think of all the ways you can Put a Square There! Nothing says summertime to me quite like ice cream. It’s the quintessential summer dessert. I have so many happy memories of ice cream sundaes after a day in the sun, so I decided to host a…

Captain Marvel Sundae

Strawberry and caramel is an underrated dessert combo. I wanted an all-American dessert for my Captain Marvel dinner party and what’s more American than an ice cream sundae? I chose a blondie as my base, since Carol is a badass blonde superhero. I topped that with strawberry ice cream, caramel sauce, sliced strawberry, and Captain…

Amaretto Milkshakes

Disaronno goes down so smooth in a vanilla milkshake!  Why don’t I make milkshakes more often? This really hit the spot! None of my guests believed me that there was alcohol in this milkshake. Each milkshake has a shot of amaretto in an otherwise vanilla milkshake. Amaretto is an almond liquor that goes down so nice, it’s…

Ice Cream Board

In an effort to post more entertaining ideas, I give you the Ice Cream Board. Think cheese board but instead of crackers and charcuterie, we have chocolate chips and cookies and everything else needed for a fabulous summer soiree. I’m going to confess this right off the bat: I technically used gelato. What can I…

Grilled Banana Boats

This has got to be the most fun dessert to make ever. It takes all of six minutes, zero prep time, and is as much of an activity as it is dessert. The best part is that you can customize them a million different ways! Young or old, these are a blast to build and…

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge

Some sundaes are worth melting for! This deep, dark hot fudge sauce keeps for ages and heats up perfectly each and every time, making it a great make-ahead dessert when you’re serving ice cream sundaes. I served this with vanilla bean gelato, amaretto whipped cream, slivered almonds, Ice Queen sprinkles, and a white chocolate snowflake…

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway Hot Fudge Sundae

Some desserts are worth melting for! You forget how great a hot fudge sundae can be. This is anything but ordinary. When I saw Ice Queen sprinkles by Fancy Sprinkles, I knew I had to serve an ice cream sundae at my Frozen dinner party. I added slivered almonds and amaretto whipped cream as an…

Stracciatella Ice Cream

I’ve hardly published any ice cream recipes here on The Rose Table, which is pretty shocking since almost anyone who frequents my house eats homemade ice cream all the time. I’ll tell you why: I always have the ingredients on hand and I keep my ice cream maker bowl in the freezer so it’s literally…

Tropical Pineapple Sundae

Anyone else feel like taking a tropical vacation without paying for an expensive plane ticket? Me too! I’ve found the most gorgeous pineapple at my store the last few weeks and decided to turn one into a fun sundae. The pineapple topping is only FOUR ingredients and would be equally delicious over a waffle. Can…

Three Course Bacon Dinner

This meal marked the end of an era. My good friend Megan is moving away this weekend. I spent the better part of two years cooking dinner for her weekly, experimenting with all sorts of dishes. She is one of the most delightful people to cook for because she’s game to try anything. (Plus, she insists…

Ingredient Spotlight: Fiori di Sicilia

If you want to transform recipes with one easy ingredient swap, Fiori di Sicillia is for you. The perfect combination of orange and vanilla, fiori di sicillia can be swapped out for vanilla extract when you’re feeling adventurous. (Note: A 1/2 teaspoon goes as far as 1 teaspoon of regular vanilla.) I love to add a…
