Hi guys! Just a quick pop-in, but I hope you’re having a lovely Monday! I just wanted to share a quick snapshot of the banana ice cream I made. It literally took seconds and is sooo yummy! It reminds me of the homemade banana ice cream my mom used (used=once :) to make for me when I was a kid. I hope you give this a try and please let me know what you think about it! xo, kat.

In honor of tomorrow’s upcoming National Banana Split Day, I’m making banana ice cream today! How appropriate, right? :)
What’s makes this homemade banana ice cream even more amazing is that it’s a one-ingredient ice cream…yes, ONE ingredient ice cream!! This recipe has flooded my RSS Feed and is all over Pinterest!
It’s all in the name, all you need are bananas! LOTS of bananas! In fact, I just sent someone a text saying I need more bananas lol. And what’s even more amazing (I know, I use this word way to much but it really is ________, *covers both hands over mouth* hehe :) is that you are able to add any type of mix-ins that you want! Go crazy, think Coldstone’s Creamy! May I suggest, a swirl of peanut butter, cookie dough bits, fresh blueberries, chocolate chips, and lots of sprinkles!
PS. I will try to snap a pic of my homemade banana ice cream…if I don’t eat it all :)
PPS. I love you guys! Thanks for reading! Wishing you a wonderful weekend! :))
One-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream (via The Kitchn)
- ripe bananas
- food processor or blender
- Pick ripe bananas. Peel, cut into bite sized chunks, and freeze for at least an hour or two (best overnight!).
- Put the banana pieces in a food processor or blender. Blend on high. It will look crumbly and the mixture will probably get stuck a lot, but keep scraping down the sides of the bowl. After a few minutes of blending, the bananas turn creamy.
- Now’s the time to add in any mix-ins of your choice!
- The ice cream will be the texture of soft-serve, but if you freeze again in an airtight container, it will get harder and more like regular ice cream.
This simple insalata caprese is a new summer staple. Everything about this salad is just so fresh and packed with flavor. Just a lot of diced roma tomatoes and a bag of arugula, tossed with some good olive oil and a little bit of salt and pepper, YUM!
To add in a bit of more flavor and color (err white is not a color lol) to the salad, add in a few fresh mini balls of mozzarella cheese. The Ciliegine baby mozzarella balls are my fave!
Don’t get fooled that you won’t be full from this salad because you will, trust me! Add in a few slices of paper thin prosciutto di parma and you’ll have the ultimate summer salad!
Perfect for lunch or a late-afternoon dinner for two :)
Hope you’re having a fantastic evening! What’s on your dinner menu tonight?

Hi guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful morning/afternoon/evening/night…wherever it may be, I hope you are having a fantastic day!
Here’s what I’ve been up as seen through Instagram….
This has been my mid/late-summer reading. I’ve finally been bit with the Fifty Shades of Grey bug, and I am obsessed with the book! I’m halfway through the first book, and I already don’t want it to end! Thank goodness there are two more books left in the series! Have you hopped onto the Fifty Shades train?
I am so excited for the holidays to come! There are so many holiday treats I want to make like apple pie bars and cinnamon roll cookies!
Late summer lunch dates with my dad have been a reoccurring trend…
But breakfast made by my other favorite man will always be my favorite :)
And this tune have been on constant repeat!
I need to get my butt back into the kitchen! But it’s just sooo hot lol. What have you been cooking? :)
“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude,” Julia Child.
Julia Child was one of the very first chefs I ever watched on tv. My six-year old self was enamored with her wit, spontaneity, humor, and delicious offerings! Before the Food Network or the Cooking Channel, I was glued to PBS everyday watching her, Jacque Pepin, Jacque Torres, and Martin Yan. I truly believe they were the true pioneers of tv cooking before Emeril, Rachel, Ina, and Giada.
Here are some of Julia’s classic recipes made by some of my favorite bloggers!

What’s your favorite Julia recipe? :)
Hope you are having a wonderful evening! xoxo, kat
