Dairy-Free Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Hey Friends!

Here’s a recap of my super chill Valentine’s Day.

I did some yoga at my new studio, Yoga Works Pasadena. Check them out!

After some hard work in my stretchy pants, my beloved and I headed downtown to a Los Angeles favorite, Urth Caffe.

Here’s a great example of why Urth Caffe rocks my socks. They don’t charge extra for almond milk and they put a sunny sun in my foam!

Then we came home and had a foodie night in the abode. If you read Friday’s post, you will remember that my amazing husband made me dinner. I really can’t remember the last time that happened. So it was pretty special.

Dessert was my project, and I’m pretty sure I dominated.

If you have access to an ice cream maker and you do not make this, you are a crazy person. Straight up LOCO.

The brownie recipe is on deck for tomorrow. I don’t want to bombard you with too much awesome all at once.
