Ice Cream: Margarita

This post is dedicated to The Bloggess. I love her, and I am obsessed with her. Not in a scary stalker-way, but in a thank-you-for-being-so-awesome-you-make-my-life-better-way. I found her a few weeks ago and blazed through two years worth of posts in two weeks. Maybe I am a little “stalker-ish”? Huh…

Last month it was Adam’s birthday and a colleague of his asked my help in figuring out what to get him for a birthday treat at work that day. In my searches I came across a specialty ice-cream place that had on it’s menu a coffee brandy ice-cream. Unfortunately, by the time I got back […]

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.

Ice Cream: Hot Vanilla

I know, this picture is lame. It can’t possible capture the essence of what it shows. It can’t even really show you anything other than a dark beige-ish lump. But, if you’ve tried my recipe for “Hot Vanilla” than you can imagine how delicious this ice cream is going to be based on its hot […]

Hot Vanilla

Vanilla gets a bad rap, in my opinion. People say something is “so, vanilla” when they actually mean “plain” and vanilla is not plain. Vanilla is sweet and just a tiny bit spicy. There’s creamy “french vanilla” and “vanilla bean” flecked with all the yummy black bits from the center of the vanilla pod. Either […]
