According to The Daily Universe at BYU and Farr Better Ice Cream Co, Utah consumes 4 times the amount of ice cream per capita than any other state in the nation. Woah! We love it! It is a perfect date night. We take our kids out for ice cream and there are plenty of options.

Many creameries in Utah tout getting lots of their ingredients (including dairy) locally sourced to make sure their ice cream is rich & creamy. My mouth is watering now. Utah is great at ice cream!

Our family's favorite spot to hit when we are up north is Leatherby's. So many options to choose from. The banana split is HUGE, and the caramel is to die for. Leatherby's serves so many options, and a ton you need to share, that we don't get bored with it.

These pics don't do it justice. This banana split is massive! I swear there is a pint of ice cream on there.

Oh, the caramel on this is amazing. Again, this sundae is so big you would have to be a trained competition eater to finish this. I suggest sharing.

Utahns love cookies-and-cream (or Oreo) ice cream more than any other except for vanilla and chocolate. There are plenty of spots to get great ice cream too. From Handel's Home Made Ice Cream in St George, Utah, and  The Creamery in Beaver, Utah to  Aggie Ice Cream in Northern Utah, we've got plenty of delicious choices. Aggie Ice Cream is amazing and has been voted in the top 5 in the state several times.

Everyone I know loves cookies and cream, I don't get it, that might be my last choice. If there are toppings, I choose vanilla as the backdrop. If I'm just eating ice cream, I choose like a moose tracks or something with nuts and caramel. Ooooh or cookie dough. Or if the ice cream is super frozen and hard enough to chew, I choose chocolate. (I don't have sensitive teeth.)

BONUS HINT: Also, now is the time to get stocked up on ice cream and popsicles because they might make it home from the store without them melting. Here comes summer!

I love breakfast, but I usually just make it myself. When we visit friends and family though, sometimes we head out for breakfast. Plus like I've said before I LOVE breakfast for dinner. So, if I can find a great spot that serves breakfast all day, it's a win.

When I cook, I usually do a skillet meal, but when I go out I usually choose French toast. I head to Northern Utah regularly and was looking for a great breakfast spot when I came upon this review from the Deseret News:

Best breakfast in Utah- Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade

"Located in Utah County and Salt Lake County, this restaurant has fantastic biscuits. The famous dish here is the Hoss, but I usually go for the Garden Benedict, which is excellent. The hash on the side is interesting — it involves quinoa — I recommend trying it either as a side or in the Garden Hash. This place is great because of all the options. If you’re looking for a place with a concentrated menu that still has variety, I recommend here."

I looked at the menu and there are several things that sound amazing! For instance, a Habanero Hot Chocolate sounds amazing. Loaded Hash with jalapeno, bacon and cheese also sounds great! And Bread Pudding French Toast sounds like heaven in a bowl. You can check out the entire menu here: Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade
