Coconut Rum Ice Cream with Toasted Coconut
3. I loved this interview with Jeni Britton of Jeni's Ice Creams. I'm a huge fan of her first cookbook, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home, and plan to check out her second Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream Desserts. Of course, the ultimate goal is to actually get myself to Nashville again so that I can check out her shop in person! Until then, I'll stick with making her ice creams, like the Coconut Rum Ice Cream with Toasted Coconut pictured above, at home!

4. Wanting to stay well-informed but don't have the time or attention span to read the newspaper cover to cover or scan a dozen news websites? You're in luck!! I recently discovered The Skimm. It's a daily email sent to you that does just what it says...skims news headlines and gives you the 'need to know' info. It's easy to read, captivating enough to hold my attention, and leaves me feeling just a little bit smarter each day! I highly recommend signing up to receive the Skimm in your invox each morning!
