Happy Father's Day

Today has been a busy and fun day.  Taking time to thank all the father figures in my Dad and my husband.  While they prefer to remain anonymous, I have made a meal for one complete with homemade chocolate ice cream and taken the other out to eat and made a strawberry rhubarb pie for him.  I have recipes to share as all recipes turned out very well.
 Let us start with the pie.  Grandma's Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

I made the recipe exactly like the instructions and it turned out fabulous!  A nice flaky crust and not too much sugar.  My Dad and I have a deal- he bought me the rhubarb plants years ago, in exchange for a yearly dessert made with rhubarb.  A definite win -win situation!

If you are a chocolate ice cream fan this Alton Brown recipe is for you

This ice cream is very smooth and creamy!  
I hope you give either of these recipes a try and share with your loved ones.
