Summer Treats Cooking Show!

The theme of our recently filmed cooking show was "Summer Treats."

Dan, the awesome camera man, was practically giddy when I opened my front door.  "I hear we're having ice cream!" he exclaimed in his lovely, lilting Irish brogue.

And then our producer, Donna, arrived and it became obvious to me that the promise of ice cream puts everyone in a very happy place.

It was like we were on a sugar high before we even made it into the kitchen.

As Dan predicted, we started with Lemon Ice Cream.  Which we then combined with Lemon Cookies and made ice cream sandwiches.

While the ice cream was churning, we made Strawberry Agua Fresca.  

And we baked a Berry Cobbler, which paired up nicely with the lemon ice cream!

Lobster Phyllo Cups

If only I could just get through a blogpost without having a recipe-name dilemma.

Lobster Bites.  Sounds too painful.

Lobster Tid-Bits.  Huh?

Lobster Appetizers.  Generic, much?

I settled on Lobster Phyllo Cups.  Eh...but at least it's straightforward.

If I didn't use these phyllo cups, I would have served this cheesy concoction with pita chips or water crackers and simply called it Lobster Dip and avoided the whole what-should-I call-this-recipe dilemma.

Holy cow, I just looked at the picture I posted above and noticed that the box says FILLO shells!!! What kind of cockamamie spelling is that?

I am not going to change my recipe name.  I am not going to change it.

And I'm not going to waste any more of your time throwing a recipe-naming tantrum, not when you could be spending your time filling these phyllo/filo/fillo cups with a mixture of yummy, cheesy. lobster!
