Totally cheated on these – used a boxed mix and added sour cream. My brain didn’t have the capacity to bake from scratch on this particular day! But I did fill them with Nutella and make a Nutella buttercream to frost them with. So delicious!

Chocolate goat’s milk ice cream. Funny story about this one. I went in to get Jude’s hair cut with my hair stylist (who is so cool she cuts his hair for free until he’s 3) and her client after us had just milked the goats at her kid’s school. They were going out of town for spring break and wouldn’t be able to use it before they left so she brought the milk in to my hair stylist, because she is also a chef (I know, right?). My hair stylist in turn, knowing how much I love food, asked me how much I would like. Does this stuff happen to anyone else?

I left with 4 huge mason jars of fresh, raw, goat’s milk! When I got home I got down to business of making this ice cream. Two batches actually. It’s better than your typical chocolate ice cream, I think that point has been agreed on by all who have tasted. I also made some goat cheese by heating the milk to 180 and squeezing a lemon in it. Strain and drain the curds – ta-dah, goat cheese! And I used the whey to make pizza dough. Nothing goes to waste.
