Chocolate cherry ice cream

I hope you are still with me on Day 3 of dessert week.  This chocolate cherry ice cream is the perfect way to get the party started for my friend Stephanie’s virtual baby shower.  Stephanie is the talented blogger over at girl versus dough.  In just a couple of weeks she will be welcoming a sweet and precious baby girl into the world and some of us decided to throw a baby shower for her to celebrate.

Chocolate cherry ice cream

Everyone loves a good party, right?  Well I do.  I know this ice cream is not typical but who says you can’t take ice cream to a party.  Stephanie could be craving ice cream and I’m just trying to help her out you know.  Besides there are cherries in it so its healthy.  OK, who am I kidding, the chocolate totally takes over the cherries but that is what makes this recipe fantastic.

If I were at a shower I hope and pray that someone is serving me ice cream.  Give me the good stuff!  Now in all reality I wish Stephanie the best in the upcoming weeks and pray for a healthy baby girl.  Check out the rest of the shower goodies below from her food blogging friends.

ENJOY ~ Meagan

  20. There are more than a dozen ways, called filters, to modify the appearance of any photo
    you wish to post. But the medium’s potential isn’t fulfilled simply by its ubiquity.
    This is exactly a great Instagram Android capsule
    GPS SYSTEM that offer a fabulous 7 inches touchscreen.

    Beyond tracking the return on marketing efforts through analytics, businesses will need to understand the
    changing distribution platforms of the New Year. Instagram For
    Android is usually stepping into different circles together with smartphones.

  21. When taking portraits in a studio environment with a portrait backdrop,
    setting the aperture is less important. Labradors are very intelligent
    and will learn tricks fairly quickly. Afterward, tilt your
    head back and repeat the process for a second time, for a third time,
    for a fourth time, etc. No matter what you decide to do, you need to have
    a professional observing the effects the drug has on your brain and your body.
    I like to think a lot about the how’s and whys and the
    way things work and the reasons as well.
