Adventures in ice cream–yum!!
Posted by Babs Mountjoy
Thank you so much for inviting me to your blog. Sometimes it’s the mundane things in life that are an adventure. Stepping out of your lane and trying something new. Starting a business. Trying a new recipe. Facing life head-on. Eating ice cream on a cold day. I know it’s October, but it’s never too cold for a bowl of chilled sweetness. Believe it or not, my favorite is plain ole vanilla, not too adventurous, huh.
Many years ago, I bought an ice cream shop in New Jersey. We made our own super-premium. The thing I enjoyed most was creating different flavors. Since I also had a coffee shop, I’d use the liquid syrups, which flavored specialty coffee drinks and frozen concoctions. Some of the ice cream had chocolate covered coffee beans and the addition of espresso. I always tried my flavors except for coconut. I despise coconut. In that case, a multitude of volunteers was willing to put their taste buds on the line.
Recently I bought an old-time ice cream maker. My granddaughter is diabetic, and I wanted to control my ingredients. Both grands were so excited when I pulled it out on a recent driveway camping sleepover. Is it done? Is it done? When will it be done? joined the bouncing up and down and peeking into the lid. What a pleasure it was to see everyone enjoying such a simple thing as homemade ice cream. That’s what my character Gloriana Jones had dedicated her life to—bringing joy one scoop at a time in Rainbow Sprinkles.
Life had thrown some devastating issues into her life. Lost love. Nearly losing her business. But with some heavenly assistance and Nathan James, she finds happiness at the end of her rainbow.
So, get yourself a scoop or two of your favorite flavor and enjoy this little peek into Rainbow Sprinkles, a One Scoop or Two story from The Wild Rose Press series. Oh, I almost forgot. Rainbow Sprinkles’ signature treat is a Salted Caramel Sundae.
