Basil Ice Cream

Today is my birthday (the big 2-7), and all I feel like doing is sleeping in and eating basil ice cream. Instead, I will be getting up at the crack of dawn to board a plane to the West Coast for a week (yay!), so I’ll keep today’s post short and sweet.

I first tried and made basil ice cream back in culinary school. It was my chef instructor’s favorite dessert, and he even went as far as to say that if he were on his deathbed, this ice cream would be his last dying wish.

I totally get it.

Fried Zucchini Blossoms Stuffed with Basil Ricotta | bloggingoverthyme.com

Old Bay Stove-Top Popcorn | @blogoverthyme

I’m kind of embarrassed to share this recipe. I mean, I’m telling you how to make popcorn–and then toss it with melted butter and a (pre-blended) spice mix. Not exactly rocket science, I know. But oh my gosh, this stuff is good.  I could get away with eating popcorn for dinner good, if...

Green papaya salad at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant! How cute are these fruit-inspired party hats? I mean, seriously. Thai iced tea floats!!! (Also, the pictures.) Give me ALL the pasta.

Spicy Harissa Lamb Meatballs with Feta

Today I bring you a big ‘ol pan of comfort food! Spicy comfort food that is—and a hefty sprinkling of crumbled feta cheese for good measure. If I had my choice in life, this is the type of food that I would want to eat everyday. Simple, uncomplicated dishes that...

Dark Chocolate Passion Fruit S'mores

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but often times I get fixated on an idea and can’t let it go for the life of me. Take these Dark Chocolate Passion Fruit S’mores for example. I’ve been wanting to share passion fruit marshmallows on the blog for what feels like forever. We made uniquely...
