Oreo Ice Cream Cake #SummerDessertWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own.

Today is the last day of #SummerDessertWeek for me, and I'm sharing my version of an Oreo Ice Cream Cake. Both my son and husband have nut allergies so I've never been able to buy store bought ice cream cakes.  

I had a Pillsbury Funfetti Oreo cake mix in the cupboard and I thought it would be fun to use it as a base. I mixed it according to the package directions and then baked it in the awesome springform pan that Circulon generously sent to us for this event.

It cracked a bit on the top, but no big deal, I split it into two layers and crumbled the top one up anyway. I mixed those crumbs with some Oreos I ran through the food processor and set them aside.

I gave the pan a quick wash (it's super easy to clean!) and dried it off. I laid a piece of parchment on the bottom disk, placed the ring back on and closed it up.  I spread in some softened vanilla ice cream and topped it with some of the cake crumble/Oreo crumb mixture.

That went into the freezer for 2 hours or so, until it was solid.  Then I topped that with some softened chocolate ice cream.  Back into the freezer again, this time for 4 hours.

At this point, things went a bit sideways. Above mentioned guys felt the need to go in and out of the freezer repeatedly despite the sign saying not to, so when I pulled the cake out to do some whipped cream decorations, they all slid right off.  It wasn't pretty.

I quickly grabbed the rest of the crumb mixture, patted it all over the sides and then quickly stuck the cake back into the freezer.  I left it there overnight, hoping that after coffee in the morning things would go more smoothly.

Another round of decorating with whipped cream failed, so I added the last of the crumbs to the sides, re-smoothed the top and then quickly made a pretty pattern with some Oreos. Back into the freezer it went.

I pulled it out to slice it and I had warm water that I dipped my serrated knife into then wiped dry.  That made nice clean cuts.  For some reason the chocolate ice cream seemed meltier than the vanilla, but I assure you that it's absolutely delicious despite it's appearance!

Despite the challenges with this one I really enjoyed #SummerDessertWeek and I hope you have too.  Huge thanks to Angie for hosting, to all the other bloggers for their awesome recipes, and to our sponsors, Dixie Crystals and Circulon! Make sure to go and enter the giveaway down below!

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Southern Bird Dogs

We're eating lots of poultry lately, and I've started hearing the grumbling from my family.   With the grill covered with snow and ice again (yay New England!), my options were a little limited.    Staring at the package of chicken tenders in my fridge, I wondered what I could do to them that would be exciting and different.   I had a few hot dog rolls and 4 strips of bacon that needed to be used up. Enter Southern Bird Dogs.  I saw this recipe on She Wears Many Hats .   She used storebought chicken tenders, but recommended this recipe from Add A Pinch to make them from scratch.    I had everything on hand except the buttermilk.     I used the "add vinegar to regular milk" trick instead.   The only problem is that though that mimics the tang of buttermilk, it doesn't have that nice thick consistency.    My first coating on the chicken seemed thin, so I let them sit for 20 mins, then put them back through the milk and flour mixtures again.    I gave them another
