    Peanut Ice Cream Cake.My Nonnie liked to entertain, but here it is. While he liked to cook and cook, he was always concerned with simple recipes. So his recipes are really the best. Nonnie didn’t bother with anything too complicated. He took short cuts as needed and that’s why I love him (and his recipes) very much. He taught me that everything doesn’t have to be done from scratch. Sometimes getting help from the store is just what you need to do.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love making it as homemade as possible. But sometimes life gets busy. You need to take a break from yourself and acknowledge that the store has great time-saving options.

    This ice cream cake is a perfect example of one of Nonnie’s simple yet delicious recipes.

    This recipe requires 6 cellar staples, zero oven time and almost no effort. Is this the hardest part of the cake? I’m waiting for it to freeze.
