Yesterday was National Cheesecake Day and I celebrated with several dozen of my fellow food bloggers. We each made our own perfect version of cheesecake and my Blueberry Ricotta Cream Cheesecake was definitely my ideal. But whenever I have a killer dessert, I start to wonder if I can turn it into a killer cocktail.

Delivery people who come to my door usually have to contend with an eager tail wagger who assumes that they are there to play with her. But today, the man who delivered my Fresh Direct weekly grocery order also had to contend with me practically ripping the boxes out of his arms.

Summer and s'mores just go together. The smell of roasted, slightly burned marshmallows conjures up memories of summer camp and long lazy kid days. Of course, grown-ups can eat s'mores, too, but it's kinda fun to drink them as well. If you don't already have a bottle of marshmallow vodka, you need to get some. Right now. For one thing, you need it to make this drink and you do want to make this drink. You can also use it to make a Frozen Fluffernutter and you want to make that, too. Drinking it straight from the bottle is also an option. Cheers!

Last week I had the good, and tasty, fortune to sample a new line of Häagen-Dazs gelato flavors. Yes, I realize it's a tough job but I'm only doing it for all of you. Um, yeah, sure. Anyhow, I ended up using most of the flavors to make mini crunch cakes but I still had some pistachio flavor left over in my freezer.

So, remember a few weeks ago when I was in such a hurry for summer to arrive? Yeah...um...OK. We can check that off the list now because it's arrived and with a vengeance. No, I'm not wishing it away. Not at all. But I am wishing for something tall and icy cold to drink.
