Get the Dish: Ice Cream "Drumsticks"
<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/food/Get-Dish-Ice-Cream-Drumsticks-37459493"></a>Who doesn't love an <a href="https://www.drumstick.com/" target="_blank">ice cream drumstick</a>? From the creamy frozen ice cream, to the crunchy chocolate and peanut shell, right down to the very last chocolate-filled bite at the bottom of the cone (you know what I'm talking about), this is an all-time-favorite Summer treat. To make it homemade is even easier than you think! The best part is once you master the classic, the possibilities of flavors and combinations really are endless. <a href="/node/37581449/edit" rel="nofollow"></a> Inspired by <a href="https://www.drumstick.com/">Nestle Drumsticks</a> "Drumstick" Ice Cream Cones Ingredients12 ounces semisweet chocolate 2 tablespoons canola oil 6 waffle cones 1 gallon vanilla ice cream 1 cup roasted peanuts, finely chopped Other toppings, optional Directions Melt chocolate in a double-boiler over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat and stir the oil into the chocolate. Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of melted chocolate into the bottom of each waffle cone, and place each cone in a short drinking glass or mason jar to hold upright. Transfer cones to the freezer for a couple of minutes to let the chocolate harden. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow it to soften into a scoopable consistency. Remove the cones from the freezer and fill each cone with ice cream, using an offset spatula to press it in and smooth out the ice cream. Add a big rounded scoop on top of the cone and smooth it out into a dome shape. Return the cone to the glass and place it back in the freezer. Allow cones to harden for at least an hour, or overnight. Return the chocolate to the double-boiler to soften. When ready, remove the cones from the freezer, and either using a silicone pastry brush or a spoon, drizzle the chocolate mixture over the ice cream and immediately sprinkle chopped peanuts on top. Continue until the ice cream and top of the cone are covered. Return the cone to the jar and freeze again until the chocolate has hardened, at least 15-20 minutes. Keep in the freezer until ready to serve.

Make Drunken Cauliflower Tacos For Dinner Tonight
<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/food/Thug-Kitchen-Vegan-Cauliflower-Tacos-Recipe-37051689"></a>Matt Holloway and Michelle Davis are the duo behind the vegan blog <a href="http://www.thugkitchen.com" target="_blank">Thug Kitchen</a>. With the tag line "Eat like you give a f*ck," they won't ask you nicely to eat your veggies. Instead, they use perfectly hilarious profanity to get their point across. They're joining us to make "corn-ve-lopes: a corn tortilla folded up to deliver tasty taco mail directly to your taste buds. These roasted cauliflower tacos are a special f*cking delivery." So crack open that beer, and let's get to work making tasty vegan tacos. <a href="http://www.yumsugar.com/node/37054233/edit" rel="nofollow"></a> From <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Thug-Kitchen-Official-Cookbook-Like/dp/1623363586/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1419874112&sr=8-1&keywords=thug+kitchen">Thug Kitchen</a> Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos With Cilantro Coleslaw IngredientsFor the slaw: 1/2 head of green cabbage (about 1/2 pound) 1 small carrot 2 tablespoons lime juice 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 1 teaspoon olive oil 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup chopped cilantro For the tacos: 1 head cauliflower (about 1 pound) 3/4 cup beer 1/4 cup vegetable broth 1 tablespoon lime juice 1 1/2 teaspoons tamari or soy sauce 1 1/2 tablespoons chipotle hot sauce 1 to 2 garlic cloves, sliced 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder Pinch of salt 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 yellow onion, chopped 6 corn tortillas 1 avocado, sliced Salsa, for serving Directions To make the slaw: Cut the cabbage into the thinnest strips you can and make sure those pieces are no longer than 2 inches. This is a great time to get good with your knife if you are looking for a silver f*cking lining in all that chopping. Chop the carrot into thin matchsticks of the same length. Got that sh*t down now, right? In a small bowl, mix together the lime juice, vinegar, oil, and salt. Add the dressing right before you are going to eat and toss that sh*t well. Fold in the cilantro just before serving. To make the tacos: Crank your oven to 400°F. Grab a rimmed baking sheet. Chop the cauliflower into small florets no bigger than a quarter. In a saucepan over medium heat, warm the beer, broth, lime juice, tamari, hot sauce, and garlic. Add the cauliflower and simmer for about 1 1/2 minutes. Drain. Toss the spices, salt, and olive oil together in a large bowl. Add the cauliflower and onion and stir till those f*ckers are coated. Dump it on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until browned, stirring halfway, about 20 minutes.
