Tips-y Tuesdays: More Grilling Tips

Once the weather starts getting warmer…actually, no, that’s not true. Once it starts getting more consistently sunny. Or warmer. Or both. I don’t really care, I just get the grilling itch.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Non-dairy Ice Cream

Nothing too crazy here today. Just ice cream without cream. Now, this isn’t ice cream that will completely fool you into thinking it is normal ice cream.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Jellyroll Cake

I’ve been wanting to make a jellyroll cake for a long time. I’ve found so many recipes for them that look good, and I’ve watched videos, read about them…I’ve even made one.

I realized that I had forgotten the sugar, and I’m not sure if anything else was wrong, but yeah. It was an epic failure. I couldn’t even practice the rolling part. Well, I finally got the courage up and I made one. It turned out better and was easier than I thought. But I still learned some tricks.
