Favorite Ingredients Friday (4th of July)
Good Friday to you all! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday 4th of July Edition! Please share recipes of something that you'd prepare and serve for a 4th of July gathering. It can be a savory grilled dish, a fun dessert, or a flavorful side! Be creative! I need ideas for the BBQ that we're hosting that day!

The recipe I'm sharing is going to be a surprise for Oronzo on the 4th (sssshhh)! This is not a healthy recipe, but everything in moderation, right? I know he and our guests will love it!

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream


1/2 pint (250ml) double (heavy) cream
1/2 pint (250ml) sour cream
6 oz (150g) cream cheese
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pint strawberries, hulled & diced
2oz (50g) grated milk chocolate


Place the cream cheese into a mixing bowl and beat until soft and smooth.

Slowly add the sugar and then beat in the sour cream followed by the double (heavy) cream.

Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice and mix until thick and smooth.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Take the chilled mixture and beat until creamy then transfer the complete mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Add sliced strawberries. Save some out for garnishing.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday 4th of July Edition recipe! I won't be able to visit your recipes right away but fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
