Teatime treats revamped

As winter soon draws to a close with no snowstorm in sight, the next best thing is a spring tea party celebration! But scones were never easy to make and stale store-bought cookies just don't cut it. The answer to this predicament: ice cream cone cupcakes. Fun to make and eat, ice cream cones cupcakes combine two of the most beloved childhood desserts - ice cream and cake.

Cowboy cookies

Pull on your chaps and grab your lasso; it's time for cowboy cookies! The name makes no sense but the great flavor of these cookies makes it irrelevant. Cowboy cookies are just oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a cooler name. These easy to make cookies are perfect for an afternoon snack, a bake sale or the ideal end to a delicious meal.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

With just days left in the school year it is time to concentrate on the finer points of summer. Along with the pool, sleeping until noon and relaxing, ice cream is a summer essential. With new found time free of studying, making ice cream is the perfect way to fill a summer day. This easy recipe will allow Blazers to make their own ice cream in just a short time.

Quick-and-easy kulfi

In India and other parts of South Asia, "kulfi" is a dessert used to stave off the heat of summer. Children are often seen licking calorie-rich kulfi that has been molded into popsicles, but this dessert is often served as a finale at the end of a full-course meal. Cold and creamy, this dish is similar to ice cream but contains no air. Kulfi can come in many flavors, if the right fruit purees and spices are added, but the best kulfi is sweet, rich and plain.

Lemon Meringue Pi

March 14, or 3/14, celebrates the Archimedes constant, better known as the notorious pi, by sporting the first three digits with its month and year. As for its other lesser-known digits, at 1:59:26 p.m. today, loud choruses of the irrational number may be heard throughout excited math classrooms. Of course, there are other ways to commemorate pi without memorizing hundreds of its infinite decimals. One way, perhaps the favorite way, is to eat pie. Pie is significant not only because it sounds like the Greek letter pi, but also because it physically embodies the notable constant that represents the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of a perfect circle. But please, no thinking about math is required; only chewing and savoring is absolutely necessary when eating this delightful lemon meringue pie. And, of course, don't forget to swallow.
