Best Ice Cream

I Love ice cream so i go to lots of ice cream shops but only a few have really stood out to me. Ice cream to me has to be perfect because it is so easy to make. It needs to be creamy and not too sweet.

In this Photo me and my little sister are at Rimini in Vail. They have some of the most amazing gelato, and the most unique and best tasting flavors such as Soma, and Cake Batter. Also they have the BEST hot chocolate ever.

Mosquitos is the best ice cream store in Maine. They have some of the best flavors like Caramel Caribou and Bear Claw, which are my favorite flavors. They also give very generous scoops so i recommend the the 1/2 -1 scoop, which ends up being like two scoops. They can also turn any flavor into a milkshake.

Ten below has great ice cream and entertainment. They have multiple flavors and great toppings. See my blog post on Ten below for more info.

Big Gay Ice Cream is also in the main picture but it is not as good as the other ones.

 

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my families most important traditions. Every year, Thanksgiving gets more and more evolved. It is an all day event and my dad and I usually are the ones who cook  dinner, but my siblings also pitch-in. But because our family is cuban, we put our own twist to the traditional feast. I am usually in charge of the Hors d’oeuvres, the bread, some of the sides, and the desserts.

Every year we try new recipes. This year we made a goat cheese and caramelized onion flat bread. Also, I made homemade brioche bread that my aunt taught me how to bake. Last year my dad deep fried the turkey.

Some recipes are still the same like the bagel chips and ricotta. All the desserts have been the same as well as the butternut squash soup, the rice and beans, and the chorizo stuffing.

We always have family over such as my aunt and my grandparents. Sometimes our family will help us cook the rice and beans or the stuffing.

Family is a big part of our Thanksgiving, especially because it’s my grandmothers birthday on the 25th of November. We always celebrate it on Thanksgiving and we either make cupcakes or a cake for her.

S’mores

S’mores are one of the most famous, amazing, incredible desserts ever. But there are many different ways to make them: burnt, golden-brown, semi-cooked, or not cooked at all.

My favorite way to make my s’mores is golden-brown. The trick to a perfect golden-brown s’more is to cook it near the coals and away from the fire. Because the coals are warm, the heat will melt the inside of the marshmallow and turn it a nice golden-brown rather than burning it too quickly. You will know when they are ready when they swell to twice their size.  The s’mores will then turn into a gooey mess😊😜😱.

I have been making s’mores for as long as I can remember. I would make them at bonfires at the beach, or cold night in vail. They are perfect for anytime of the year.

Sometimes I replace the graham crackers and chocolate with a warm chocolate chip cookies😝.
