Horizontal slices of rich brownie cake make dramatic stripes in this striking frozen dessert, which features all the fixings of an old-fashioned sundae -- and then some. Two kinds of ice cream -- vanilla and strawberry -- are used as the fillings, along with crunchy peanut butter and crushed raspberries. Everything is layered in a loaf pan before freezing, slicing, and serving -- with whipped cream, sugared peanuts, and cherries on top.
To save time, grill and assemble this layered no-bake "lasagna" beforehand, and then serve it chilled or at room temperature. Cheese lovers can replace the grilled tofu with slices of fresh mozzarella.
These hulled pumpkin seeds are tossed with lime juice for zing and chili powder for spice (we like arbol for its extra kick), and then toasted into a crunchy -- and addictive -- appetizer. Counter the heat by washing them down with a refreshing Mexican beer.
