Life is like an ice cream. Enjoy it before it melts.
Welcome to Little Deux Scoop, a celebration all things ice cream!
To say I have a passion for ice cream is a bit of an understatement. I take it pretty seriously. In fact, I like to say I have a “sixth sense” for knowing where the nearest ice cream shop is, no matter where I am in the world.
I blame my family. Growing up on a dairy farm and apple orchard in Upstate New York, I didn’t think there was anything unusual about having a 19 cubic foot gallon always full of Stewart’s ice cream in the cellar (the dairy processor we shipped our milk off to). Nor was it terribly strange to consume ice cream at least once a day after dinner (if not more).
Honestly, it wasn’t gluttony. We simply appreciated the joy of having a little something sweet and supporting the industry that has been my family’s livelihood for seven generations. It was a special little moment in the day that my family enjoyed together, and still does.
I’ve never lost that appreciation, and I figured it’s high time I start sharing them with the world. So if ice cream is your yoga, your therapy, your happy place, your guilty pleasure, I hope you’ll join me. I’ll be dishing up servings of up my favorite ice cream shop discoveries, recipes, and other ice cream-related inspirations. Enjoy!
