We have vanilla ice cream left over from a party in our freezer right now. Problem is, the pie it was originally served with is long gone, and I find vanilla ice cream quite dull without anything to dress it up :D. Unusually for me, chocolate syrup was what sounded good. However, I don’t actually like store-bought syrup much, and if I’m gonna make it, I may as well make it so Sean can have it!

Everyone in my family loves the frozen chocolate pie we often make (at least, everyone who loves chocolate); but almost right away we started looking for a way to make a similar lemon pie.  When my sister and I started making frozen yogurt, we hit on something interesting — mixing Cool Whip into soft frozen yogurt made for a surprisingly creamy, almost ice-cream-like mixture.  With that and the thought of lemonade concentrate in mind, I set out to make this icebox pie.  :-)

I actually started working on this recipe before we left, but couldn’t do the final test in time to post it before vacation. Nonetheless, it is still summer, and thus still ice cream season, so we’re still good to go. It is a very tasty recipe and very easy to make, so I recommend trying it on the next hot day where you live!

We celebrated my friend Ginny’s birthday this last week.  :-)  When I asked her what sort of food she wanted for it, she thought for a minute, then said she wanted a cake that combined her three favorite flavors — dark chocolate, coffee, and cherries.  What was more, she wanted to make a marble cake.
