Pro Football Cookbook – Beer Pastrami Reuben Sandwich

By William Kristoph

Joshua Guiher (@collegiatestdms) was kind enough to send me a copy of “Pro Football Cookbook: Recipes for Home or the Tailgate,” a cookbook that features some of his recipes.  The book is well-done. Every dish has a beautiful photograph. No dish is overly complicated (it needs to be able to be made in a parking lot) and each one reflects the style of a particular city. I can’t say enough good things about the format.  I love Twitter, especially when it provides a nice surprise like this one.

Blue Bell Review – Fudge Divinity Is Awesome

Blue Bell Fudge Divinity Is Here For The Holidays

By William Kristoph

Believe it or not, prior to Blue Bell releasing Fudge Divinity for the Holidays, I had never had a taste of Divinity Fudge. Thanks to Blue Bell, I’m going to check out Emeril’s recipe for Divinity Fudge and try the “real” thing soon. Why? Blue Bell Fudge Divinity is a fantastic holiday flavor that blends marshmallow ice cream mixed with chopped pecans and a swirl of milk chocolate sauce.

Simply put it’s awesome, not too heavy and has a great smooth and creamy texture. Should you try it? Definitely? Blue Bell Fudge Divinity is a rare find. This is the first time since 2000 that it’s been available in stores! Grab it while you can and indulge in a great holiday flavor.

Blue Bell’s Krazy Kookie Dough ice cream is a blend of cake batter ice cream and neon colored sugar cookie dough. According to Blue Bell it’s, “Our flavorful Cake Batter Ice Cream loaded with sugar cookie dough pieces in bright shades of green, blue and pink.” As is almost always the case, Blue Bell’s description directly matches up with what is inside the container. Extremely flavorful cake batter ice cream is the star of the show. If you like yellow cake batter, you’ll love this ice cream. The sugar cookie dough pieces are abundant and brightly colored. This is how a child’s ice cream dream must look.

In my never-ending quest to check out Blue Bell’s flavors, I spied a half-gallon of Blue Bell’s Rocky Mountain Road Ice Cream not too long ago and decided it was worth a try. I’m not a huge fan of regular rocky road ice cream, but Blue Bell’s premium version containing, “A rich, dark chocolate ice cream combined with dark chocolate-coated peanuts, milk chocolate-coated pecans, white chocolate-coated almonds, and roasted walnuts, all surrounded by a flavorful marshmallow sauce swirl” sounded too good to pass up.
