Vanilla ice cream never goes out of style but ever since the ice cream maker entered my life I have been creating all kinds of ice cream flavors. Imagine traditional vanilla bean ice cream with the addition of sweet and fragrant cinnamon and pieces of milk chocolate… drooling yet? This is a must try for summer and those warm days ahead.
A sweet and creamy vanilla bean cinnamon ice cream with milk chocolate pieces.
One thing I must add is if you do substitutions for heavy cream with a lower fat content your ice cream consistency will not be the same as mind. During the process of my experimentation, I have really learned that ingredients directly affect the texture of ice cream. Also please do not substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean, sadly it’s just not the same thing.
Feel free to garnish you ice cream with an additional pinch of cinnamon or add in cinnamon sticks for some fun.

With July over half way through, I feel like summer fashion is a ticking time bomb and soon fall clothes and boots are going to start showing up everywhere. I promise not to do that… yet. These Corral Python Cowboy Boots are full of summer spirit with their turquoise tribal details. Pair these boots with jeans, a dress, skirt of shorts if you’re feeling bold. The boots have the characteristic Corral fashion flair and are full of spirit. You may purchase these boots from Allen’s Boots.

TGIF and welcome to the weekend! Hopefully you have fun-filled or relaxing days ahead of you. Going out-of-town is always fun especially when there is cute luggage involved. I happened to stumble across the brand Sloane Ranger while doing a Google search and knew I had to share a few pieces from the horse print collection.
The duffle bag is durable, fun and weekend ready. A crossbody bag for easy carrying and travel flexibility.
The matching wallet.
And a coin purse.
If you are loving these pieces you can purchase them online at Sloane Ranger or find store that carries the brand near you. There are a lot of other great bags with different prints and more pieces from the horse print collection as well.

Do you hate the grocery store or sometimes feel too tired to shop after work? If you need a break from the store and still want healthy and great tasting home cooking I suggest you try Blue Apron. I had such a fun experience this past week cooking with Blue Apron and want to thank them for sponsoring this post. Blue Apron is a meal delivery program and so much more. Think of Blue Apron meals as a beauty box or subscription service that delivers fresh ingredients and recipes right to your door weekly.
To get started you simply sign up and submit your meal preferences (vegetarian, meat, no fish, fish, ect.). Once that’s done, sit back and wait for your meals to arrive. Once my box arrived, I unpacked it and checked out the menu; Filipino – Style Beef Picadillo, Pan-Seared Chicken and Sauteed Bulgur and Cod and Pattypan Squash En Papillote were the meals I made.
Blue Apron has a special offer for Horses & Heels readers – New Blue Apron Meal subscribers can receive their first two meals for FREE! You must click on this special link to take advantage of the offer. Questions? Feel free to ask.
Up first was the Pan-Seared Chicken and Sauteed Bulgur. All of the ingredients come pre-measured and with step by step instructions for preparing your meal. Blue Apron meals plans, shops, measures and delivers for you. After about 30 minutes of cooking Adam and I had an amazing dinner and a glass of wine. Blue Apron makes cooking easy and cooks on every level can learn something here.
My only experience with bulgur wheat was in a warm cereal and it tasted great with the shallot, garlic and parsley.
Up next was the Cod and Pattypan Squash En Papillote. Pattypan squash was a vegetable I never tried before and cooking with parchment paper was new to me so I really enjoyed making this meal.
In case you were wondering En Papillote means food cooked and served in a paper wrapper. While the term sounds fancy (blame it on France), it’s actually very simple to cook with the parchment paper.
The cod topped with the fresh herb salad and tricolor quinoa was so good! Am I making you drool with some of these recipes? Blue Apron does have a summer cookbook that you can purchase from them online.
And finally, the Filipino – Style Beef Picadillo with Chayote Squash and Jasmine Rice.
Again I tried something new, chayote squash! It was a fantastic meal that I would definitely make more of.
And just a reminder – Blue Apron has a special offer for Horses & Heels readers – New Blue Apron Meal subscribers can receive their first two meals for FREE! You must click on this special link to take advantage of the offer. Questions? Feel free to ask.
This post was sponsored by Blue Apron and I was compensated for my time and work put into this post. But the opinions are my own and I enjoyed every minute of this experience. Sponsors help keep this blog running so be sure to check out Blue Apron and see what they are all about.
Pink is a color that always brings a smile to my face. The Calabasas Pink cowboy boot by Liberty Boot Co. is fun and flirty for summer. The boot features a snip toe, deep pink leather overlays in a floral pattern and accents of lime. You can purchase the boots at Space Cowboy Boots. One pair of cowboy boots can offer so many outfit options.
