Ten Reasons to Eat Ice Cream in Winter
There's a blizzard raging outside my window now, but that's no reason to avoid the grand dame of all desserts -- ice cream. Plus I want to share a wonderful photo essay, Ten Reasons to Eat Ice Cream in Winter by Heather Phelps-Lipton (which features ACakeBakes) that was just published on Nona Brooklyn, a delicious food blog. Reason #2 is "The whole warm gingerbread situation."
Heather, above, stopped by one day last week with a pint of the most delicious ice cream ever (Steve's Small Batch Bourbon Vanilla) to photograph it atop a slice of warm gingerbread I had just pulled from the oven. She did, and once she was finished taking pictures, I ate the gingerbread a la mode. And after she departed, for I do have some dignity left, I devoured the rest of the ice cream.
