Strawberry Shortbread Ice Cream – Creamy, luscious no-churn ice cream, swirled with strawberry sauce and strawberry pieces, then sprinkled with crumbled up shortbread biscuits.

No-churn, strawberry shortbread ice cream - decadently creamy and delicious!

I love it when something easy-to-make tastes out of this world.

Making multi-step cakes and desserts can be fun, but tucking into a bowl of something that tastes this good – after only 10 minutes of prep and a spell in the freezer – well, it almost feels like you’ve been let into a secret.

The best secret!No-churn, strawberry shortbread ice cream - decadently creamy and delicious!

and now that the kid are off school, I need some quick recipes!

This time last year I had just finished my job in the IT world.  I can’t believe a year has gone by already! During that time I’ve been working hard on the blog, my photography (check out one of the photos from this time last year – hopefully the improvement is apparent), and I’ve also started writing recipes for other people too.

…and that’s all down to you guys for coming to check out my recipes.  Thank you so much x

No-churn, strawberry shortbread ice cream - decadently creamy and delicious!

Looking back at last year, I was just about able to juggle writing a few recipes a week for my blog whilst keeping the kids entertained for the holidays.

This time round I’m about 2 or 3 times as busy.  I’m not quite sure how I’m going to fit it all in whilst spending time with the kids, going for days out and taking a few little holidays, but I’ll manage.

A few ideas I have in mind include:

  • Plenty of quick & easy recipes
  • Recipes aimed at children
  • Recipes made with the children’s help (they’ve already asked to make homemade jelly worms…..)

You’ll see I’ve used the strawberry sauce I shared on Wednesday to make this ice cream.  That meant I had this ice cream mixed and ready to go in the freezer in 10 minutes.

I haven’t actually shared any with the kids yet (Chris and I sat on the sofa scoffing it after getting the kids into bed) but I’ll try to save them some.

Or maybe I’ll just have to make some more!!
