A Personal Note from Janine
As some of you know, I have four older brothers. So we were quite a big family, and it was fun growing up with boys. But, during our childhood, my father had a rough time starting his career, so money was tight.
I’m sure it was difficult for my mom and dad to feed our family of five kids. My mom was pretty frugal and watched her grocery budget. But on Fridays, it was our big dinner of hamburgers and soda pop. Gosh, does anyone call it soda pop anymore?!
Well, on special occasions, our Fridays also included root beer floats! I clearly remember using a big jug of Dad’s Root Beer to make our floats. What a treat it was and what fond memories I have from my childhood.
I wish my parents were still around to thank them for all that they did for my brothers and me. As a parent, I understand the sacrifices and unconditional love they lovingly imparted to us.
Sorry to get all sentimental.
As you probably figured out, today’s Saturday Chitchat is all about frozen dessert recipes. I guess someday I should post a root beer float recipe in honor of my family.
Thanks, everyone, for hanging out with me today!

Trending Over On The Blog
This English lemon curd recipe is one of my all-time favorites! Spread it on a freshly baked scone or even a yummy piece of toast with butter and wallah!
And, I have the best Magnolia Table Scones recipe that will go nicely with a dollop of lemon curd to make this recipe even tastier!
Overall, this recipe is simple, like 30 minutes simple, sweet with lemon, and a go-to dessert recipe for a sunny summer!
If you’re allergic to milk, then this recipe is for you. However, I must warn you that this recipe is somewhat difficult for beginning bakers because of the egg custard. Bake at your own risk!
You see, I was on a mission to make my dairy-free ice cream since my husband is seriously allergic to milk. Well, after a couple of attempts, I finally came up with the best recipe.
So, it turns out that Mikey (my husband) is crazy over this extra creamy almond milk ice cream! Milk allergy or not, I’m pretty confident that you’ll love this ice cream made with almond milk.
For all of those lemon fans out there, this one is for you. I present my lemon tart puff pastry recipe! This recipe is so easy to make. It honestly tastes like this dessert was made in a fancy bakery!
Of course, the key is to use fresh homemade lemon curd. But lucky for you, I have a lemon curd recipe that you can also make, or if you’re short on time, store-bought will do just fine.
This recipe is the epitome of one of my favorite summer recipes. So if you love everything lemon and need a new dessert, this recipe is 100% worth it.
I mean, who would resist a sweet, fluffy, easy-to-make, lemony dessert? I wouldn’t, and you shouldn’t either!
This Week’s Tip – Popsicle Molds
Not all popsicle molds are created equal. Take it from me, I bought the plastic molds, and I couldn’t get the frozen popsicles to pop out of them. It was so frustrating, to say the least. But here is a solution that works for me!
These silicone popsicle molds are the best! My good friend Colette told me about them, and I’m so happy she did since they are the bomb. But, seriously, these popsicles come out so nicely without a struggle!
I find most of the time that the right tool for the job makes a world of difference! So, to all my popsicle fans, get these asap to start creating fun and fresh desserts for the summer!
My Latest Obsession
Organizing Our Refrigerator
Organizing my refrigerator has always been a challenge for me, so I have decided that every Wednesday is the clean-out day. And one thing that helps make organizing 10x better is these containers. I found this exact set at Costco, and I immediately placed them in our refrigerator.
The most important thing I love about them is that they are 14 inches in length. This means that the containers use up space more efficiently and almost reach the back of our fridge!
This set above is so great because I love this skinny organizer for our eggs. Now everyone can reach in and grab an egg without having to take the whole carton out. I’m all about streamlining the cooking and baking experience!
Well, this wraps up this week’s Saturday Chitchat celebrating our favorite homemade ice cream recipes. I always love hearing from you, and thanks for taking the time to come on over to the blog!
Have a wonderful Saturday!
