2014 Ice Cream Crankin’



SUNDAY, JUNE 8th 3-5pm
First Presbyterian Church, Franklin Rd, Nashville

Recently I was asked if I would like to be a judge for the 2014 Purity Miss Martha’s Ice Cream Crankin’ and Summer Social. To judge an ice cream contest is basically a DREAM COME TRUE. As I just mentioned in my last post, I eat ice cream year round. And I have a full category of ice cream recipes here on my blog, with both traditional flavors & crazy flavors. Some of my absolute favorite &/or most notable include:


Honey & Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Fig Swirl


Mocha Ice Cream


Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream


Cinnamon Ice Cream


Maple Ice Cream with Pumpkin Pie Fudge Swirl


Corn Ice Cream


Butterscotch Ice Cream


Bourbon Ice Cream

I can’t wait to see what flavors everyone comes up with at this year’s Ice Cream Crankin’ Contest! Elliott & I went last year with our buddies and we had SO MUCH FUN! There was live music, & fun activities for kids. I definitely wasn’t able to sample all of the ice cream that day, in part because I had to keep up with Elliott & keep him happy, as well as I just didn’t have the stomach space! As a judge I’ll get there early this year, so I’ll be sure and come hungry.

A little background info on the Martha O’Bryan Center, it is a non-profit founded in 1894 and has been operating at it’s current site in East Nashville since 1948. They help with everything from child & youth development and activities to college and career counseling. They serve over 6,000 individuals a year, specifically helping people at the low income poverty level. So come on out and support a great cause, and most importantly eat LOTS of ice cream!

This event always has a great crown, but I’d love to see lots of friends there, so spread the word & please come! The event is Sunday, June 8th, 3-5pm, rain or shine. Tickets are on sale now, and they’re $10 for adults, $8 for children in advance. Friday at midnight the price goes up to $13 for adults, $10 for children. Children under age 2 attend for free. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit their website.

    Nothing better than being force-fed ice cream! I’m gonna have to try that honey ice cream out.
