Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know why I have been a little quiet on here the past few weeks. My husband who retired from the Air Force after 21 years has decided to go back in. Much to my dismay.

He is leaving April 13 for 5 months. I think that I am going to take a break from blogging until he leaves. Then after he is gone I will need to fill all my alone time and will be able to devote the time I need to really be fair to the blog, my readers, and all of you.

I am sure that you will all understand and know that I will be back full force April 13th!

Full of yummy meals and sweet treats!

Thank you for all your support an loyalty over the past 2 years!!!

Copy Cat Bucca di beppo Meatballs ~ The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen ~ www.pandpkitchen.com

I love spaghetti and meatballs! Like crazy Love it! Sometimes I could eat it everyday.  One of our favorite places to go is Bucca di Beppo’s.  If you haven’t been there let me tell you all about it.  It is the tackiest Long Island Italian living room you could possibly imagine.  {I actually saw some that were tackier when we lived there}  Think Goodfella’s  meet the Vatican.  It’s all done in fun and exciting ways as you weave your way from over decorated room to room.  Then you are seated and are faced with a menu that has more items than you could ever imagine.  Each serving is designed to feed 6-8 people!  Want something smaller, well too bad.  Small still feeds 3-4.

St. Patrick’s Day Float {Luck of the Irish Week}

26
Feb

{This Post was originally written in 2012.  It was so good that I wanted to bring it back for you}

Everyday that passes brings us one day closer to the Big Party! I am getting so excited. I have Shamrocks and green plaid all over the house right now! As I am sure you are all aware by now St. Patrick’s Day is a favorite here at the P & P Kitchen!

I bring you a really fun and really wonderful Ice Cream Treat for Adults Only!

This is by far the best way to drink Beer ever! All Beer should come with a scoop of Ice Cream!

This is rich, thick, chocolatey with a bite at the finish goodness! The recipe has it’s own chocolate sauce to make but you could easily just use Hershey’s Syrup. Not only is there thick rich Guinness Stout but you have a shot of Baileys in the bottom of the glass! The crowning achievement to this is the perfect dollop of homemade whipped cream!

Remember when you were a kid and you would go into a soda shop or ice cream parlor and how good a root beer or coke float was on a hot summer day? Well this float will take you back to those good old lazy summer days, but it will make you so happy that you are an adult now that you can have booze and chocolate ice cream all in the same glass!

Oh yeah Baby!

Not a beer drinker? That’s ok because neither am I.  Nevermind that we have 25 gallons of beer fermenting at any given time in my basement from my Hubby.  You don’t have to like beer at all for this.  All of the additions of Baileys and ice cream and chocolate syrup and whipped cream take the bitterness out of the beer and just makes this so very very delightful!

This is a perfect addition to your St. Patrick’s Day festivities!

Oh and serving it up in a stolen pint glass from your favorite Pub a total plus!

Guinness Stout Ice Cream Float

6 servings

1 pint

Guinness Stout Ice Cream Float

This recipe was adapted from Alice Medrich

Ingredients

  • 6 bottles of Guinness Stout
  • 6 tbs of Bailey's Cream
  • 6 scoops of chocolate ice cream
  • for the homemade chocolate sauce:
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dutch process cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Or use Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
  • for the whipped cream:
  • 1 cup chilled heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • or use Redi Whip

Instructions

  • To make the Chocolate Sauce
  • in a sauce pan mix the cocoa sugar and boiling water
  • whisk and bring to a simmer over low heat and simmer for 11 min
  • remove from heat and add vanilla
  • let cool to room temp
  • Sauce will keep up to 3 weeks in an air tight container in the fridge
  • For the Whipped cream:
  • using a chilled bowl and chilled beater whip the cream and sugar until stiff peaks form
  • In 6 pint glasses
  • pour 1 tbs of Bailey's
  • 1 tbs of chocolate sauce
  • 1 scoop of chocolate ice cream
  • slowly pour 1 bottle of Guinness Stout into the glass by holding the glass at a 45 degree angle. This will help keep the head {foam} under control. You may have to stop and wait for the head to go down before fitting all the beer in the glass.
  • Place a dollop of whipped cream on top of the head and drizzle in more chocolate sauce
  • Enjoy!
