A Summertime Favorite: Honey-Lavender Ice Cream

S.McCabeMy mother and I recently spent a lovely weekend in New York City. While we were there, we were craving seafood, so we decided to try a restaurant that online reviewers raved about: Estiatorio Milos. Everything was delicious and, after four courses, we didn’t know if we’d be hungry enough for dessert. But of course, there is always room for dessert.

While my mom and I are huge chocolate aficionados, we thought we might be more adventurous and order the most highly recommended dessert at the restaurant—a walnut cake served with honey-lavender ice cream on the side. Let me tell you, it was one of the best dessert decisions we’ve ever made.

My family loves to make homemade ice cream, so as soon as I got home I raced to find a recipe for this creamy, delightful treat. This recipe from Epicurious is the perfect way to combat those hot summer afternoons. Enjoy!
