Do-Gooder Peanut Butter and Honey Ice Cream

My refusal to eat peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches is just one of the many ways in which I was a difficult child. (You’ll have to ask Ouisue and Larry about my insistence on wearing fancy, Royal Wedding-esque hats to kindergarten, as well as my tendency to describe my beverage requests in great detail (“I want a glass of something that is cold, white and comes from a cow…”).

That is not to say I forwent all peanut butter-based sandwiches. No, I was a peanut-butter-and-honey girl. On toasted wheat bread, crusts intact, please (hello, they’re the whole point of the sandwich). So, when my friends at Project Open Hand (a fantastic non-profit dedicated to providing healthy meals for those who cannot afford them or are too sick to cook for themselves) let me know that they created their own gourmet peanut butter, the proceeds of which go towards a wonderful cause (for every $4 tub of peanut butter, Project Open Hand feed one person), I knew I had to make peanut butter ice cream with honey. Everyone combines peanut butter with chocolate or fruit, but not me (I’m difficult, remember?).

And then I remembered my friends at my all-time favorite food non-profit, Time at the Table recently sent me some gorgeous handcrafted vanilla, the proceeds of which benefit Time at the Table’s mission to get families eating healthy, homemade meals together. I decided I would make ice cream with a cause (er, a few causes).

This no-cook ice cream was easy (not to mention perfect for the San Francisco heat wave we’re experiencing right now), and bottom-of-the-bowl-scraping-ly good. Serve with an extra drizzle of honey.

  • ingredients
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter Pantry
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar Pantry
  • 2 cups (1 pint) half-and-half $1.50
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract $4 for 4 oz.
  • 1/4 cup honey Pantry
Total Cost of Ingredients $5.50


Beat together the peanut butter and sugar using an electric mixer. Pour in the half-and-half and vanilla and beat for about 3 minutes, until sugar is dissolved and mixture is very creamy.

Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Once custard has set, drizzle in ice cream with the machine running to create ribbons of honey throughout the peanut butter ice cream.

Serve immediately (as a soft custard) or freeze until hard enough to scoop.

Makes about 3 1/2 cups ice cream.

Women’s with a heavy body may have a really hard time when they are out for shopping especially when you go for shopping your swimsuit. Although some seller have options for people with larger bodies and for different size ranges, finding clothes which properly fit, while supporting our curves, without us digging dip into our pockets is an uphill task actually. It is quite a big challenge that is often taken care of Nova Swimwear brand.
The situation gets worse when we are out shopping for swimsuits. That, however, does not guarantee that what they sell is quality or is meant to the body most of busty women.
Following are the some plus size body types. So, when you know your body type it will be an easy task for you to pick a swimwear for your body.
1. Straight Body type:
Is your frame is the same size up and down through from the top and bottom half of your body, and your shoulders and bust are close in measurement with your hips. Then maybe you have a straight body type and in this type its look like your waist is not clearly defined.

Tips for straight body type styling:
• Adjust your waist with a belt to give the appearance of a curvier frame to your body.
• Use outline color blocking to help define the curves of your shape.
• Use the Off-the-Shoulder Blouse, Shift Dress, and A-Line Skirt for your swimwear.
2. Hourglass Body type:
You tend to have a larger chest and curvier bottom, and your waist is at the narrowest part of your body. Your shoulders and hips are almost the same width, providing a balanced body. This type of body is known as hourglass shape in plus size body.
Tips for hourglass body type styling:
• You should wear ultra-flattering wrap dresses or blouses that enhance your waist.
• Try out plus size peplum tops which will be able to highlight your waist.
• Go for low-cut tops with deep scoop neck, surplice, halter and V-neck styles that best showcase your figure and suites your perfect body.
• Interested in highlighting your curves, wear dark colors and vertical stripes.
3. Apple body type:
After the hourglass then comes the apple shape you have balanced shoulders and hips, and your upper body is curvier and more prominent then the bottom part. Your waist is well not clearly defined.
Tips for apple body type styling:
Make sure that you balance your body with fuller pants or skirts.
Pick up wrap dresses and blouses that help reducing your tummy.
Wear clothing with ruching that helps hide your tummy.
For a flattering look, ensure your tops end just below the hip. Like one piece swimmer for plus size body.
4. Pear body type:
Your body is narrowest at the shoulders through the bust. You are fullest at the hips and thighs means your bottom is muscular. And in that case have a defined waist.
Tips for pear body type styling:
• Make your upper part of figure prominent draw attention upward with statement-making necklines and accessories.
• Wear dark color to less highlight your bottom.
• Adjust your outfits with a blazer that highlights your smaller waist.
• Ensure your tops and jackets hit either above or below the widest part of your hips.

5. Full bust body type:
The final type in plus size bodies is full bust your top half is larger than your bottom half. Your widest measurement is at the shoulders and bust and your figure gradually narrows through the hips and legs.
Tips for full bust body type styling:
• Wear plus size tops with surplice, halter and V-necklines gives you the great look.
• Shop for plus size tops that is perfect for your waist.
