Seasonal Ice Cream Pies at Creamistry

With cool weather and football in full swing we put the bathing suits away and break out the long sleeve shirts and sweaters as we focus our attention to the Fall and holiday season. Foods are seasonal too and for a limited time Creamistry, where ice cream meets science, is introducing Ice Cream Pies with a seasonal twist at their 4 locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix.

The Earl Grey tea Ice Cream Pie is infused with Earl Grey tea, topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls then sprinkled with dark cocoa powder.

The Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream Pie tastes like its been home-baked and is made fresh when you order it. The flaky pie crust is filled with apple ice cream, cinnamon apple compote then finished sweet caramel and topped with a crispy streusel topping. Hard to go wrong with these delicious ingredients.

Kitchen Kit’s No Bake PB Chocolate Cookie recipe from Joanie Simon

It’s a no brainer what to post about today as I listen to food blogger/ recipe developer Joanie Simon on the TV preparing some of her favorite foods. It should come as no surprise that Joanie is this month’s Kitchen Kit creator from Bite Magazine. Joanie’s ingredients from Arizona food producers combine to make her “No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies”.

In your Kitchen Kit will be 3 of the 5 ingredients to make the cookies including PB Americano Classic Peanut Butter, Zak’s Haitian Cacao Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, McClendon Select Desert Blossom Honey and an easy to read recipe card. Joanie’s video for the cookies is on-line at her website

Combine with rolled oats and sunflower seeds from a your local market and your all set.  Full sizes of ingredients are included for you to make plenty of batches of cookies or use for your own recipes.

This no-bake recipe is both simple and delicious, says Simon. “You can make them for the kids, but in reality you’ll probably eat them all for yourself.”

The Kitchen Kit from Joanie Simon is available until the end of October and cost $35 plus shipping and can be ordered at ReadBite.com

Super Chunk Sweets & Treats owners to open New Wave Market

With the success and national recognition of their Super Chunk Sweets & Treats store owners Sergio & Country Velador figured now would be the right time to take 1,100 square feet next door to open their mom & pop New Wave Market in May. Still under construction the new store front will offer breads and baked goods, a lunch menu, house made ice cream and locally roasted coffee.

The old town Scottsdale location will have room to sell unique & quirky retail items and space for classes where they will teach how to make baked goods and crafts. “We want to take back the tradition of making things,” said Country. “There’s a new wave of interest in craft – in the actual ‘how-to’ of creating something yourself. New Wave Market is our way of celebrating that.”

The Velador’s focus will be baked goods with savory breads, take away lunches, specialty ice cream cones and cup and an espresso bar. Unique retail items from small batch producers such as American Spoon, COOP’s Microcreamery, and Curio Spice Co. and items for around the house and gifts from Funko, Fishs Eddy & Imm Living.

“We want to show off businesses that focus on creating high quality products in small batches,” Country said. “The goal is to have a unique, food-centric selection that will appeal to kids and adults alike.”

New Wave Market will be at 7120 E. 6th Ave. #20 Scottsdale 85251 and an exact date of opening is not yet scheduled. You can follow the progress & get an opening by checking out their social media @NewWaveMarket or website https://www.newwavemarket.com/
