Pina colada cheesecake

I know what you’re thinking. The House that Lars Built is confused. It’s not a food blog. It’s crafty! I know I know! Don’t worry, it’s just that these very important national holidays are dictating the editorial calendar around here. The whole month of sweltering July was National Ice Cream Month and July 30th, yesterday, was National Cheesecake day. We can’t have it slip through out glue-gunned out fingers just because we are a DIY/craft blog, right? SO, ME Hammond of Baked by ME came up with THE MOST DELICIOUS cheesecake recipe you’ve ever tasted. You will never want to eat cheesecake in the round again. This deconstructed version will blow your tastebuds. I nearly downed the thing as we photographed it. This is one of those recipes where the baker, ME, says “it’s soooo easy” but you really you can’t trust her because it’s that good.

Pineapple boat with sorbet

And to close off the season of sorbet, I present to you a pineapple boat. Kandyce came up with this fun idea. When she was little she would spend vacations in Palm Springs. At their favorite Japanese restaurant they were given a pineapple boat for their birthday chock full of ice cream and topped with loads of sugared accessories. She decided to make one for you in a slightly more healthy version. Just carve out the pineapple and add in the scoops and top it off with some of your favorite goodies.
And to recap, here are the sorbet flavors we shared from July’s National Ice Cream Month.

Pineapple with Chamomile tea and lemon juice 

Take out your violin because National ice cream month is coming to a close. But I have two more surprises for you friends one of them being this pineapple sorbet with chamomile tea and lemon juice, which is absolutely delicious.

Check out the recipe below.

The recipe is basically the same as last week, just swap out the tea and fruit. 

Pineapple with Chamomile tea and lemon juice 

3/4 cup chamomile tea (loose leaf at a local coffee shop works!)
2 tbs lemon juice
2 cups of pineapple
1/4 cup honey
In a saucepan, stir the tea and honey together over low heat until thoroughly combined. Bring the mixture to a boil, remove from heat, and let cool.
Place the 2 cups of fruit and the 2 tablespoons of juice into a food processor and puree. Once smooth, blend in the simple syrup made from honey and water. Mix thoroughly.
Scrape the sorbet onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Spread the mixture out over the pan, forming a thin layer. Freeze until solid then remove from the pan in chunks and puree again in the food processor.
Donzo.
Yields 2 1/2 cups of sorbet
To apply the chamomile flowers onto the cone you simply apply a small amount of honey onto the rim of the cone and dip into sprinkles. Easy squeezy.
