Here in Miami its pretty much feels like summer all the time. So everyday is a great day for ice cream!

We like to cool off and give out taste buds a treat by making our own ice cream. This flavor combines the best of both worlds, ice cream and our favorite pastelito filling of guava and cream cheese.

Peanut Buter Cookies are so rich and delicious that they feel like a guilty pleasure. But fear not, just go ahead and minus the guilt because even if you are creeping out of bed to grab some soy milk to go along with that cookie; you should enjoy it. Go ahead and savor every morsel of cookie while you glance out of a telescope at night. You’ll probably tire your eyes and head back to bed in your comfy pajamas and with a happy tummy.
