Make An Ice Cream Pie

If there’s one thing that I’ve been missing since I’ve made the big move down to the Bay Area, it’s being able to use my kitchen! Back in Seattle, I used to love grocery shopping for some of my favorite things to try out new Pinterest recipes. Kevin didn’t approve of any of them, but that’s okay because at least I was learning how to be a better cook even if I was just sucking. One of my favorite ice cream shops in Capitol Hill – Molly Moon’s – recently created this tutorial video on how to make an ice cream pie and I’m convinced that even a 5-year old could make this. It’s a simple, but delicious dessert!

Square Stand

One of my favorite Seattle shops, Molly Moon’s ice cream, has recently adopted the Square Stand in their stores for customers to check out and I get such a kick every time I get to use it. Between selecting my tip and giving my signature via finger, it definitely adds a little something to the experience. Readers, are any of your favorite stores using the Square Stand?

Is Ballard Becoming The Next Capitol Hill?

photo cred | Daily UW

It was just recently that we learned that Capitol Hill’s Skillet Diner would be making the move to Ballard this summer season and now two more Capitol Hill establishments are moving in! Burger shop Li’l Woody’s and our favorite Molly Moon’s are expanding their shops to the lovely neighborhood of Ballard. I’m quite fond of Capitol Hill, naturally, after living their for four years and while I can sometimes feel very prideful over my neighborhood, I think the expansion will make all parties involved pretty happy! My logic is this. I am love with Seattle. Capitol Hill and Ballard are both neighborhoods in Seattle. Why not share the love?

I’ve never eaten at Li’l Woody’s, but I’ve heard great things. If this makes it easier for Seattle locals to enjoy their favorite places a little bit closer to them then I’m all for it. I adore Ballard, actually. It’s such a charming neighborhood and the one time I spent a night out there with Jennie, Ashley, and Henry, I only remember great memories.

In Things I Am Disappointed About Today…

photo cred | The Stranger

Why did no one tell me about Molly Moon’s exclusive  Baracky Road ice cream?!

Is this punishment for no longer living in Capitol Hill because I feel like it is. Tomorrow’s the last day and I am nowhere near a Molly Moon’s. A bellini will have to do.

Out on the Town: 3/12

To celebrate the Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary, Molly Moon’s will be giving out free kid-sized scoops of their classic Scout Mint all day starting at noon!

OH MY Goodness. And if that news doesn’t melt your heart and warm your stomach enough, then the Girl Scouts themselves will be selling their cookies and greeting customers outside of the shops beginning at 3PM.

Adorable.

In Seattle News…

There was so much Seattle news swirling around yesterday that I decided to just make a separate post for it away from the rest of the pop culture news going on in the world.

- During Bumbershoot weekend, Kevin informed me of a new car service named Uber that had just been brought to Seattle that I could use in place of taking a taxi or the bus. So how does it work exactly? Uber is an on-demand car service that will pick you up from wherever you are and take you anywhere you need to go in a sleek black car. Known as “everyone’s private driver,” Uber is a service that is all about convenience and style. If you’re a member of the service, then your payment is just charged to your credit card so no more fumbling at your dolla dolla bills! This service is great for a night out, but is also the safer bet in place of a taxi or bus – – as suggested by Kevin.

“In Seattle, pricing currently starts with a $7 base, plus $3.75/mile distance and $0.75/mile time fees with a $12 minimum and $50 set rate for Sea-Tac.

To learn more about the service, click here to visit their website.

- PBS is making a documentary that will highlight Seattle’s thriving music scene. The program titled “Seattle Music…something in the water” isn’t all that clever, but will feature some of your favorite local bands including The Head & the Heart, Shabazz Palaces, Pickwick, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and a few others. The show will air on October 21st.  [Source]

- Storefront installations will be returning to Broadway this fall/winter! The last time this happened was back when I was a freshman and back then I don’t think I was able to fully appreciate it. Storefronts Seattle will take over vacant store fronts on Capitol Hill stretching from Pine Street to Roy and will be decorating them with creative and visually pleasing installations. [Source]

- Food trucks are rolling up with a sweet surprise! Street Wheels, a new hot pink truck parked on 2nd and Pine, will be dishing out their treats every day from noon-6. Their menu features a number of ice cream sandwiches, chocolate dipped ice cream bars, and a handful of your favorite classic desserts. [Source]

- Molly Moon’s has been named the King County Executive Small Business of the Year! [Source]

- After one man stiffed a bartender last week at one of my favorite bars in Capitol Hill and then criticized her weight on the receipt, the locals went nuts. Something you should learn of the day: If you’re  going to stiff a bartender, don’t pay with a credit card. Capitol Hill locals harassed the guy via his Facebook to let him know that he is just not welcome back to our neighborhood ever again. This story got around so quick, I even found out on The Frisky shortly after the incident. Read more about what happened here and here.

High 5 Pie to 12th Ave

If you thought Capitol Hill couldn’t get any sweeter, you were wrong. Dani Cone, who runs the Fuel Coffee shops, has decided to open up a High 5 Pie on 12th Ave in the retail space below the Trace Lofts. You’ll never have a hard time choosing dessert now that you have High 5 Pie, Molly Moon’s, Old School, and Cupcake Royale nearby. The pie shop will also serve Fuel Coffee and ice cream so that you can have your pie a la mode.

The lovely pie shop should be open around New Year’s just in time for the peak of winter!

I can feel it in my bones

It’s going DOWN this summer. I’ve been amped on the Capitol Hill Block Party news all day, but let’s not forget my other favorite music festival that will culminate my entire summer. Bumbershoot turns 40 this year and they are celebrating it in 40 different ways. That’s better than my 2 1/2 week long birthday celebration.

This list begins w/ a kick off party on June 2nd at the Hard Rock Cafe. Along the way, we will have collaborations with SIFF, Flickr, Street team events, an exclusive flavor at Molly Moon’s and a SAM Remix – just to name a few.

The countdown begins now.

Elliott Bay Book Co. to Capitol Hill!

Today, happened to be one of those days where I realized how much I loved living in Seattle. It was a gorgeous day despite my own rain cloud over my head because I missed the Outnet.com’s $1 sale on designer items at 3:46 AM, but other than that… solid. My evening was spent with my dear friend Megan as we ventured over to Broadway to Pho Than Brothers, through Cal Anderson Park stopping at Molly Moon’s Ice Cream and then hitting up the new Elliott Bay Book Co. The book store is amazing. The grand opening was yesterday and even though I missed it by a day – it really didn’t change much because the fresh smell of the wood was still looming inside. It was somewhat crowded, which is understandable for only being a day old. I never imagined what it would be like to have a bookstore in Capitol Hill nor did I realize how close it would be to my school. My only wish is that there were more tables and chairs because it would be a prime study spot. If you get a chance to stop into the store, take it!

“Turning 20 is like a quarter of your life!”

Turning 20 is like turning 19. You don’t get any new privileges out of it like you would with ages 18 or 21, but the day is what you make of it. I used to love my birthday because it was MY day. It was the one day where all of the attention was on me (I disregarded the rest of the people in this world that share my birthday including four of my friends.) This year, the people I spent it with and the experiences I have had meant more.

For my 20th birthday, I decided to create my own project. For every person that we came across I would ask them one of three questions or all of them: 1. What did you do for your 20th birthday? 2. What advice do you have to give me as I turn 20? 3. What do I need to do before I turn 21?

We spent the day traveling through the Seattle area  to acquire these responses. Welcome to our adventure.

Mohammed: “How is your day going?”

Me: “It’s my birthday!”

Mohammed: You look like you’re turning 11!

But, if I were turning 11… would I be buying gas?

Mohammed ran after me to receive the confirmation from my friends. He asked me if he could do anything for me and before I could say no, I remembered the project. I asked him questions 1 and 2.

“When I turned 20, I was blacked out and woke up next to a woman who said ‘I’m having your baby!’ The best advice I have for you is “Any day above the ground is a good day.” He then beckoned me to come into the station with him one more time where he swiped a $25 gift card for me before sending us off on the rest of our travels.   :)
