I’m so excited. I can’t even explain it.

Breathe, Mouse, breathe. I know.


My cookbook, Slushed!: More than 150 Frozen, Boozy Treats for the Coolest Happy Hour Ever, will be released on April 15, 2012. (Click here to pre-order today from Amazon.)


File those taxes, then blend yourself up a few frosty cocktails, right?

The book is a collection of easy-to-make, booze-infused frozen desserts (everything from pops to ice cream and frozen cocktails).

If you know me, you probably know that I make a lot of ice cream. You probably also know I shake up my fair share of cocktails—and I’m no stranger to booze-ifying my recipes (hello, Drunken Coffee Jello Squares).

Spiked, frozen desserts are right up my alley.

I did all the recipe development, writing, and photography right here in my kitchen in Salem, so I guarantee you that this book is 100% Mouse-Made.

Here’s a sneak peak at the covers.

A big thank you!

Thanks again to everyone who stuck by me last summer as I churned my way (pun intended) through literally hundreds of gallons of ice cream, gelato, sorbet, and sherbet.

You know who you are, and you know how much I love you.

Stay tuned for a ton of new recipes

Now that the book has gone through its final round of edits, I can get back to serious regular business here at The Hungry Mouse. It’s been a crazy 8 months or so.

But! The Mouse House has a brand new, huge stove, and I’ve been putting it through the paces. (Mile High Apple Pie, anyone?)

Stay tuned! Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
