life a la mode: eat dessert first

Last night, while walking down Pearl Street after devouring the cuppa magic that is an affogado, two fellow artists (and devourers of life) and I ruminated on the meaning of ‘a la mode.’ Meaning at once “with ice cream on top or on the side” and “the current trend,” it is a rich word to roll around on the tongue and savor. I asked Bill Keys, the Pearl Street Poem Guy, to whip me up a poem about “Two stars and a moon a la mode,” and I must say, it was amazing.

As you may know, I like my a la mode dairy-free and coconutty. So I compiled all of my ice cream recipes into one downloadable place to save you the searching to find all the yum-yums on the site. Scoop up the lovely coconuts here, prepare to moan, and share with those you love. You’re welcome.
