Homemade Coffee Ice Cream | Serendipity by Sara Lynn

The first time I ever remember trying coffee was when I was three years old, and it was in ice cream form.  Growing up, my family and I would visit San Diego almost every summer, and on this particular trip, we were staying in Old Town.  Right down a few flights of stairs from our hotel was this tiny ice cream parlor. My dad went down to the shop one night after dinner and got coffee ice cream with chopped almonds folded in.  Ice cream has always been one of my favorite things, so of course I wanted to try it. He probably thought I would be unimpressed by anything coffee-flavored, but joke was on him, because coffee ice cream was just the gateway brew that fueled my addition.   I clearly remember being personally offended when he told me I couldn’t have anymore (probably because of the caffeine content, but like, who doesn’t want a caffeinated three year old jumping all over the hotel room beds??).

Vanilla Crème Brûlée

If you follow my Instagram, then you probably know that I promised a recipe with vanilla beans.  You also probably know that I have an obsession with vanilla beans that can only be compared to Gollum’s relationship with the ring.  *ahem* However, do not fret if you don’t have vanilla beans just laying around the house (most people don’t).  You can substitute with real vanilla extract or paste.

If you need a quick Valentine’s Day dessert that seems kind of fancy (but you don’t want to try too hard) this is it.  Crème brûlée seems daunting, but it’s actually so, so easy.  Take it from me, since this is my first attempt, and it turned out *very successfully*.  Plus, it only takes about 15 minutes to put together and uses 4 ingredients.
