When I found this ice cream recipe I really wanted to alter it to use as a peanut butter treat to stir all of the leftover White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups into. But I struggled with whether or not I wanted to make it. You see the below ice cream base calls for using uncooked […]

Banana Sorbet

September 9, 2008

If you are what you eat then I would undoubtedly end up some cross between a banana and a block of extra sharp white cheddar. Not exactly a pretty outcome, but reality nonetheless. I always try to have bananas on hand and I do my best to eat them before they go bad, but a […]

XOXO Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

July 24, 2008

For the record I have been so incredibly impressed with all of the Tovolo products I’ve been using over the last few weeks. The molds I used for Popsicle Week were all distributed by Tovolo and the ice cream sandwich molds I tested for this post were no exception. With the assistance of these cute […]

Purple Cow Frozen Yogurt

July 21, 2008

Last weekend I finally got to go to the beach for the first time this summer. It was fabulous. I even briefly braved the 66 degree ocean temp for a quick dunk. Once upon a time someone told me that salt water increased your highlights. Obviously this meant more to me when I was a […]

My first batch of Root Beer Float pops bubbled up and created a sticky lava flow all over the frozen broccoli and chicken breasts in my freezer. So you’d think that the second time I made them I’d manage to not repeat the same mistake twice, right? Well, what do you suppose I did two […]

Popsicle Technical Difficulties

July 2, 2008

Contrary to popular belief not everything in my kitchen comes out camera ready. In fact, more often than I’d like to admit some dishes come out looking like this. A warning to you all: if the popsicle box instructions state that you should leave a half inch of room at the top of the mold […]

Mojito Pops

June 30, 2008

As previously promised Popsicle week has at last arrived. Thankfully these pops are awesome because I think I gave myself temporary carpal tunnel syndrome after juicing eight limes by hand with a ridiculously flimsy plastic juicer. Obviously a sturdier tool is going right to the top of my shopping list. By the time I finished […]
