Summer Fun - No Churn Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Cream

A perfect way to celebrate summertime... No Churn Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Cream and DIY Ice Cream Sundaes!
If there is one treat that everyone loves during summer it's Ice Cream!!! Cold, creamy ice cream is a must have in surviving the dog days of summer. My family spends a lot of time outdoors during summer, so keeping cool is a must.

We love cooking out, grilled desserts, s'mores in our fire pit, and making homemade ice cream. Most times we use our favorite Nostalgic Electric Ice Cream Maker, but I have to say using a no churn recipe is just as delicious and fun.  

Last weekend while the kids and I were grocery shopping at Walmart, we picked up everything we needed to make this easy No Churn Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Cream. Initially we just wanted to make homemade ice cream, but I thought it would be fun to pick up some sundae essentials and make our own ice cream sundaes as well.  

When my kids were younger they loved filling the ice cream maker with ingredients and watching it go round and round and turn into ice cream. Well, this easy no churn ice cream is just as sweet and smooth, and perfect for DIY Ice Cream Sundaes!!!!! I was a bit skeptical on this 3 ingredient ice cream recipe, but I'm here to tell you it taste exact to ice cream churned in an ice cream maker, but so much easier.

Grilled Honey Orange Chicken & Grilled Pineapple

This flavorful grilled chicken is coated with a sweet and sticky orange glaze made from honey, orange juice, rice vinegar, orange sauce, soy sauce, and spices.   
The weather here in Texas has been super hot, so we're been cooking outside quite a bit. Last week for dinner I wanted to try a new chicken recipe, but wasn't quite sure what to make? I remembered receiving a box of food product in the mail that it came with a few bottled sauces and seasoning items.    

You might remember a couple months back, I created a recipe for Grilled Balsamic Steak, Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding, and Ranch Vinaigrette Pasta Salad using food products new to Walmart. It's always exciting to open the sample boxes to see what items I received.   

Well for the month of July I received my third and final grocery bundle and was asked to review the products and create a recipe using my favorite items. I used the Kikkoman Orange Sauce and the Marukan Rice Vinegar to create this deliciously easy sweet and sticky Grilled Honey Orange Chicken.
