"From my previous post - I obviously had to make ice cream, duh. Kabocha Squash served in its beautiful burnt shell 😍 We’ve all been burned before. We’ve all gone thru a fire or two, but it doesn’t take away from the beauty we hold inside. I love making ice cream and writing emotional captions 😛 . . . . #dessert"
