Raspberry Lemon Delight

This Raspberry White Chocolate Ice Cream garnished with lemon zest will leave you speechless!


Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

8 ounce package of frozen raspberries or fresh

Zest of 1 lemon

15 to 20 white chocolate chips or 10 to 15 melting wafers

3 table spoons of sugar (4 to 5 if you don’t enjoy the tart)


In a small sauce pan heat to medium low, add raspberries, lemon zest, two quick squeezes of lemon just and sugar while bringing to a boil. Stir constantly, this one needs to not thicken up too much so no additions such as corn starch or similar (it will be perfect for ice cream). Once raspberries are dissolved remove from heat and allow to cool for five minutes.

While sauce is cooling, melt white chocolate chips/ wafers to a smooth consistency. Scoop ice cream into bowl, pour over raspberry sauce, drizzle white chocolate and garnish with lemon zest.

Best Chili Ever

I Love Chili and You’re Going to Love This One!

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes with a blend of ground Turkey and Beef (you could use pork in the place of Beef). If it’s cold and rainy, game day or just wanting something hearty to pack some goodness on those ribs. This is the chili that will make you rethink what good Chili is!

Chili Ingredients

1lb ground turkey

1lb ground beef (or pork)

1 yellow cooking onion

4 cloves of Garlic

5 diced Roma tomatoes

1 can of dark red kidney beans

1 can of navy beans

5 teaspoons of salt

3 teaspoons of pepper

5 teaspoons of parika

1/3 cup of Ketchup

2 teaspoons of garlic powder

To Garnish:

Cheddar Cheese (your choice of medium or sharp cheddar)

Sour cream

Chopped Green Onions

How to Cook the Best Chili Ever

Set the stove top to a medium high, in a large saucepan add two tablespoons of Olive Oil. Add in the diced garlic and onions, sauté until browning. Make room for the turkey & beef and cook until browned (about 10 minutes). Reduce to a medium low and add in salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, ketchup and stir. Then add in diced tomatoes, navy beans, and kidney beans. Allow to simmer for 25 minutes while occasionally stirring and taste testing for the appropriate seasoning level. For those that like a little kick add in 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or hot sauce to the mix.

Once the time is up, let cool for a few minutes. Then spoon into a serving bowl and add cheddar cheese, sour cream & chopped green onions as the garnish.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
