Sorbet: Rum Punch

The rum punch drinks were so good it was nearly impossible not to make it as a sorbet. Adam, was a little bit of a party-pooper and said that he prefers his alcohol in liquid form but he ate his words. The sorbet is awesome. The alcohol is very present and packs a little punch […]

Sorbet: Watermelon

Ugly picture, I know, but I am in love with watermelon sorbet. It is to me, in some ways, the essence of summer. It’s light, it’s fruity; it’s refreshing; it’s thirst quenching; and it’s sweet. Sorbets are light in part because they have no dairy in them. Although, homemade sorbets need a little help since […]

This strawberry ice-cream has less than a handful of ingredients: fresh strawberries, milk, and sugar. Blend it in a blender and churn it in the ice-cream maker. It becomes, what is, in all honesty, probably the best ice-cream I’ve ever had. Ever. Anywhere. I probably shouldn’t have led the week with a recipe with that […]

I have no reasonable or justifiable explanation for why I made these. There was no event or occasion or even forethought. The simple truth is that I bought a huge vat of strawberries and hadn’t used them all up. Time was running out on them and something needed to be done.

Blueberry Pie

One summer when I was in college I started making blueberry pie. I don’t remember why I decided to make it, but I did and it became an instant hit. At the risk of sounding immodest, it really is spectacularly good. So good, in fact, that while my sister has often requested it for her […]

It was great and choosing which tea sandwiches to make was a lot of fun. From what I’ve gleaned there are some pretty traditional tea sandwiches like cucumber or […]

These are so insanely easy I’m not sure why we don’t make them all the time. Somehow chocolate covered strawberries got relegated to the world of special occasions. They really don’t have to be and once you read this you’ll see why you can have them, basically, whenever you want.

We were away for the weekend recently and when we got home a once over of the fridge revealed a pint of blueberries in the back on the top shelf. They were caught in that unfortunate point of decay where they were still perfectly edible, yet they had lost the lustrous plumpness of their prime […]

Key Lime Cheesecake

Today is Adam’s birthday. Each year I try to find something special that I can make for him for dessert. He’s pretty easy when it comes to what meal he wants: Steak frittes (AKA steak and a side of fries). But dessert is where I get to play.

Rum Punch

  It was my 10th wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago. With the help of my lovely mother-in-law Adam and I got a long weekend away at the beach, just the two of us, no kids. I’m not really sure there’s anything else to say other than that I drank a whole bunch of […]
