Something Saturdays (2/6/15)

Hmmm...not sure what to say this week...

Work last weekend went super well-I was able to work with 2 girls I was already friends with and we were stationed at the "Kids Zone" so we just hung out and helped 2-6 year olds ride these little strider bikes, it was pretty great actually! And the rest of this week I just got stuff done and worked. And I'm working this weekend. So....pretty boring stuff.

Enjoy the Super Bowl, I suppose? Lol

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend-I stiiiilll feel like Greg and Rebecca should be together. Also...how cute are White Josh and Darryl??

Jane the Virgin-Ugh, I still want Rafael and Jane together (my heart almost broke when he almost sent the "No. I love you." text)

Shadowhunters-Magnus + Alec are my favorite right now.

The Muppets-This has been the best episode yet. Piggy's penguin and and going full Miley were hilarious. And they finally got Piggy back to being more herself-adorably self involved but not a total beyotch. And yay for more Muppets being featured. And Piggy and Kermit's musical number *swoon--and then yay for stupid Denise breaking up with Kermie. KERMIT AND PIGGY-GET BACK TOGETHER NOWWW.

Ricotta Meatballs

I'm an Italian gal who loooves ricotta cheese. I LOVE IT! On pizza, in lasagna, even in gnocchi! My heart breaks for my poor brother-in-law and his wife: they moved to North Carolina this year (my sister-in-law, Emily, is attending grad school down there) and apparently they do not have much in the way of Italian food. Like...they don't carry ricotta in normal grocery stores. WHAT THE WHAT??! That's insane. And sad. I'm sure they both load up on the Italian food when they visit, though, but still...that'd be a tough one for me.
Soooo...when I saw the idea of putting ricotta in meatballs. Clearly, I was gonna have to try it. And I'm so glad I did! It's not like a totally revolutionary thing-it didn't make meatballs all of a sudden taste totally different! Buuuut...I definitely think it added a little extra somethin' to them, and they were super moist. Which I think is probably due to the ricotta? Regardless, I like 'em. You'll probably like 'em and....if you live in the South and have a hard time finding ricotta....oh man. I'm so sorry. Someone needs to like...write a letter about this. Because it's a real problem.

Or you could just make this meatball recipe.

But I still recommend you try this one.

Peanut Butter Butterfinger Ice Cream {No Cook, Egg-free}

When you make your own sweet treats at home...it spoils you, guys. Like...you got to a cupcake bakery and scoff when you see their cupcakes don't have filling (IF A CUPCAKE ISN'T FILLED IT ISN'T WORTH IT!) Or you look at an ice cream display and see that their "Butterfinger Ice Cream" is vanilla ice cream with Butterfingers-NO!

The correct way is to have peanut butter ice cream with Butterfingers. Which is why we have to make these things ourselves. So I did. For you. (...well...and me....and Michael).
One super nice thing about this recipe is the fact that it's pretty darn simple to make--you don't cook anything, it doesn't have any eggs in it--you just blend together some half and half, peanut butter, sugar, etc. and then pour it into your ice cream maker! Plus...making this ice cream was an excuse for me to finally try out the new Butterfinger Baking Bits (have you seen those??? They're in the same area as the chocolate chips and such). It's pretty much just a bag of super crushed up Butterfingers...which makes them perfect for using in baking or...ice cream!
This ice cream turned out PERFECTLY-creamy, silky textured sweet peanut butter ice cream with crunchy Butterfingers in every bite....MMmmm! If I ever opened an ice cream shop, I would serve this and share with the world the way Butterfinger ice cream is supposed to be! Of course...I am sharing the recipe with all of you, so...same thing, no? Give it a try, enjoy it, and then say "Ah Kayle you're totally right! This is the way to make Butterfinger ice cream!" And I'll say, "Aww thank you! OMG riiiiight?? Forreals."

...because I'm a millennial. But can we still be friends?

:P
