One day soon, I’ll write about ice cream in this space.

Devising and creating weird, wonderful flavors of ice cream is one of my favorite hobbies.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been making small batches of ice cream and distributing it to friends and family in exchange for donations to worthy causes. My wife came up with the name Philanthro-Pints (because she’s good at naming things and I am not).

Flavors have included Rainbow Nerds, Watermelon Cilantro, Cookie Butter, and Peppered Strawberry Ginger. Causes have included funding supplies for water protectors at the Standing Rock Sioux reservation; the annual Black Love Bailout; the Washington Area Clinic Defense Task Force; a DACA renewal fund; and No More Deaths / No Más Muertes, who provide food, water, blankets, and medical assistance to migrants in the US-Mexico borderlands.

Once I get this started up again (soon, I hope!), I’ll be posting occasional recipes and updates here.
