Zeppes Ice, Frozen Custard and Italian Ice, St. George, Utah

Zeppe's Ice
1812 W. Sunset Blvd #2
St. George, Utah

When I was a kid, my Mom used to have this laminated ice cream cone (flat paper) on the closet door in the kitchen. Each cone had our name on it. And every time we read a Friend magazine article we would earn a paper laminated scoop of ice cream for our cone. And at the end of the month she would take us out for ice cream. But actually, we usually went for Frozen Yogurt which has always been the in-thing here in St. George as long as I can remember.

The trendy hot spot back then was Dixie Frozen Yogurt. It was in the old shopping center on Bluff where K-mart is still located. It was always a welcome treat. I loved getting gummy bears on my frozen yogurt. 

Now all the frozen yogurt places are self serve and you always spend too much money!

Okay, there are several yummy frozen yogurt and ice cream places around here now, and I will review each of them another day, but today, I want to tell ya'll about Zeppe's Ice. It's different from Frozen yogurt because it's fruity ice!

The other day we went in for a little Monday family night treat and ordered the Gelatta. Which is a combination of frozen yogurt/custard and Italian ice. It's not like snow cone ice though, its like a fine fruity ice. 

Zeppe's website describes it as a frozen fruit puree the consistency of ice cream. Well, anyway, it's worth trying and it's delicious.

I tried coconut flavor which was divine... oh goodness, need some right now! And I had pink and blue... which were some other fruit punch Hawaiian flavors that the kids enjoyed.

By the way, this joint is hot on Monday nights, might want to go in when it's less crowded like during the day. They have a variety of seating inside and out.
And if you are coming with a minivan full of kids, call ahead and they will bring it out to you in your car! Very family friendly business.


Oh goodness, another great thing about being back in a southern warm climate area of the United States is eating frozen desserts again. I seriously gave up ice cream after a while when I lived in a cold climate, but now we are back to enjoying it regularly. 

A great thing about Southern Utah, really, all of Utah is that there are plenty of dessert places to go. Not a lot of bars in Utah (with the exception of Salt Lake City), because the general Mormon population doesn't drink alcohol, but we eat lots of sweet stuff, yes we do!

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Making Friends 101

After moving back to the U.S. - there was definitely a readjustment period for me. So, I put time into starting a blog. And then getting myself out there, making friends and getting involved and going places and doing things with the children.

Then when I did that, and I did it successfully, there really was no time to blog about how great St. George is. I have come across a few other mommy bloggers that have attempted to explain just how great this area is, but after a time, everyone kinda stops and it's because we are enjoying the sunshine and the nature and all that this area has to offer that we stop blogging or just don't do it as often.

Recently a good friend, Michelle, that I met shortly after moving here, asked if I would write some blog posts for her on her blog Green Kale and Yams about my recent change has a Vitamix owner. I said, yes.

Now it's time to get the word out, that I have switched over from using a cheap model smoothie maker to an Americ…

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …
