And hopefully these recipe will inspire you to create your own to enter the Safest Choice No-Bake Summer Recipe Contest for your chance to win a ticket to the Food & Wine Conference, plus a whole lot more! And when the mercury rises, I want ice cream. Well, I always want ice cream, especially when it is swirled with ripples of peanut butter and studded with mini chocolate chips, like this “Funky Monkey” PB Ripple Chip Banana Ice Cream.

OK, confession time. I feel kind of guilty about this, but I’m going to just put it out there. I really don’t like having The Bug help me in the kitchen. I mean, I do let him sometimes, but I don’t necessarily like it.

Really it’s my issue. I’m a scientist, and a perfectionist, and a food blogger who wants to make sure I get my measurements right and that it looks pretty. I’m also paranoid.

And he is a grabber, toucher, taster, with no consideration for my meticulous nature, or even for his personal safety when I am using a giant chef’s knife to chop fruits and veggies, have the stand mixer or food processor running, am prepping uncooked meat to go on the grill or in the oven, or especially when I am making a sweet treat and cracking some eggs. I mean, my mom always let me lick the beaters when she was making a cake, or the bowl of cookie dough after all the cookies were in the oven, but it just makes me sooo nervous.

That’s why I am sooo loving Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs, since they are pasteurized, totally eliminating the risk of salmonella. I don’t have to worry about little fingers in the bowl (as long as the mixer is unplugged) making their way into his mouth. Those I’m serving the dish to might have to worry, since he is definitely a double dipper, but I suppose what they don’t know won’t hurt them, right? ;-)

Now who is going to invent magical knife that only cut fruit and veggies and not the aforementioned little fingers? And find a magical cure for my perfectionism? Oh well, guess I’ll be cooking solo for awhile longer.

I think The Bug will forgive me for not always letting him cook with me as long as I keep making him treats like this…

OK, so I don’t allllways make him treats like “Funky Monkey” PB Ripple Chip Banana Ice Cream, but it was a special occasion. For his birthday dinner, he requested eggs, fruit salad, and English muffins, and for dessert, instead of cake he wanted to make sundaes. Since I wasn’t making cake, I figured I’d make ice cream. Ice cream especially for him, since it incorporated all of his favorite flavors – bananas, chocolate and peanut butter – all in his favorite dessert – ice cream. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Or the drip doesn’t fall far from the cone, as the case may be.

But this ice cream was perfection to us. Ripples and swirls and gobs of pure, slightly salty, unadulterated peanut butter meander through a sea of sweet, lightly banana flavored ice cream, only interrupted by bits of chocolate that add just the right amount of texture to the smooth creaminess. And, you know, chocolate. I don’t know what heaven is like, but if it’s up to me, it’ll include plenty of this delightful treat.

    Brianne!
    love this ice cream and love the combination of peanut butter and banana!!! Pinned and can’t wait to break out my ice cream maker! it’s coming out the first day after school ends, woot woot!!

  2. says

    Can’t go wrong with funky monkey anything! This ice cream looks especially creamy and delicious. I also love your bowls/spoons. Super cute!

  3. says

    Although, I do look back and absolutely miss those times I shared with my sweet girl, I can totally relate about having little hands in the kitchen. It’s been years, but I remember the feeling for sure. These pictures are gorgeous!! Love the metal cups and the ice cream recipe sounds deeee-lish!! Nice job!

  4. says

    “The drip doesn’t fall far from the cone” <– amazing! I love that! This ice cream is balls to the wall incredible, Brianne. It's got everything that I love to eat in there. Your photos are so gorgeous and tantalizing (I wish I could lick that ice cream through my screen). And seriously, I can't wait to meet you and the rest of the gang at F&W in July!

  5. says

    I totally get it-I love the idea of having my future children help me in the kitchen, in theory. But I know from experience with babysitting that my type A nature makes it verrrry difficult to cook/bake with kids! so I feel you.

    Hooray for David’s choice eggs making cookie dough safe! And hooooray for this gorgeous, swirly, chock full of deliciousness ice cream!!! LOVE!

  6. says

    Haha, FINALLY! A mom who doesn’t pretend it’s all fun and games to have a kid in the kitchen. To be honest, when I have a child, I will probably feel the same way. And I will also probably bribe my child to stay out of the kitchen with an ice cream like this. Of course, I want them to learn to love cooking….but just….when I actually want them there ;)

  7. says

    Wow! This looks and sounds incredible! Yum!!

    I also like to be the Lone Ranger in the kitchen. Our kitchen is relatively small and feels much smaller when my husband’s 6′-3″ frame fills the room. It’s like running into a tree at times… yeesh!

  8. says

    Oh you know in due time he’s going to have no desire to be in the kitchen with you and you’ll wish he was back there with his little fingers in the bowl! However I get you, I don’t like people in my workspace either. I want my fingers in bowl! lol!
