Rockhill Orchard

Summer is coming! That can only mean one thing: ICE CREAM!

Last year, my family and I decided to explore farms in the area that make ice cream. There is actually a whole program dedicated to this called the Maryland Ice Cream Trail! I had no idea but Maryland is home to nine dairy farms that offer freshly made ice cream.

The first farm we visited, Rock Hill Orchard, was one of the closest farms to our home. What really sets Rock Hill Orchard apart is that they use the milk of Golden Guernsey cows. The cows are grass-fed and their milk contains double the amount of Omega 3 and a higher amount of beta carotene, which gives the milk a golden color. I am actually Lactose intolerant but since this ice cream is a cow to cone  I decided to not take my lactose pill as a test. The Results? I didn’t have any stomach pains or bloating!

The creamery has original flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry but they also have seasonal flavors depending on the fresh ingredients available on the farm. After sampling almost every flavor available, I opted for a scoop of dark chocolate and one of strawberry. Since strawberries are in season, the strawberry flavor had huge chunks of fresh strawberries which complimented the dark chocolate flavor! Sprinkles, hot fudge and whipped cream are all complimentary!

After enjoying our ice cream, we decided to take a walk to see the cows. The cows have tons of land and grass to graze on. You can also bottle feed the calves every day at 4 pm!

If you are in the mood to try one of the best ice creams I’ve ever had, make sure to visit Rock Hill Orchard to see everything it has to offer.

 

Pinball Date

 

Pinball?  Is that even a thing anymore?

My husband and I went to check out Vuk in Bethesda, Maryland. Vuk is a pizza and pinball arcade. If you live in Montgomery County, you have probably heard of Mom’s Organic market, well the man behind Mom’s is also the man behind Vuk!

Café Georgetown Review

If you know anything about me, you know I am a coffee connoisseur.

My husband and I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. We wanted some coffee that wasn’t from a chain and we came across Café Georgetown. The café is very quaint. As soon as you walk in you see dark blue walls with an amazing black and white patterned tile. The interior design is just amazing and definitely an Instagrammer’s paradise! They have signs all over the café stating they are a laptop free zone. Which was nice because people were actually having conversations with each other and it changed the whole atmosphere. When we got there it looked like all the seats were taken until we realized it has a gorgeous back room with a wine bar.

The Baked Bear Review!

Summer is almost here!

I have literally been counting down the days so that I can have the most epic cheat day EVER!  The Baked Bear is finally open! When Bub and I arrived, there was a line forming out the door so I knew it had to be good. As we got closer to the line I got a peek at the menu, I WANTED EVERYTHING!

 

 

I got a cookie dough ice cream sandwich with an M&M cookie and a funfetti cookie. It was DELISH! You start off by picking a cookie, the best part about this step is that you can mix and match cookie flavors. They also have doughnut ice cream sandwiches and you can sub a cookie for a brownie.  After that you get to pick an ice cream flavor and toppings. This is your chance to get creative. Bub opted for a white chocolate macadamia cookie with mint chip ice cream drizzled with hot caramel.  They also have vegan options! Make sure you get your sandwich hot pressed.  Bub loved the cookies so much we bought a dozen of them. You can buy day old cookies for 6 bucks!  If you are in the area make time to visit this amazing place,  you won’t be disappointed!
