Barrel Aged Vanilla Ice Cream

Barrel Aged Vanilla Ice Cream

The other day, I posted instructions on how to make barrel-aged vanilla extract at home. The aged extract is delicious on its own, far more so than regular vanilla extracts, but you might need some ideas on how to showcase this special extract once you’ve made it. I recommend substituting it for regular vanilla in a recipe where vanilla is the star. Vanilla cakes, custards, ... Read More »

Quick and Easy Homemade Strawberry Sherbert

Quick and Easy Homemade Strawberry Sherbert

Sherbert is an ice cream-like frozen dessert that was a favorite of mine as a child and it instantly brings back memories when I take a bite. I usually opted for rainbow sherbert because I liked the swirl of colors, but strawberry was always the flavor I ate first. This¬†Quick and Easy Homemade Strawberry Sherbert is probably quite a bit better than the sherbert I ... Read More »

Red, White & Blue Berry Icebox Cake

Red, White & Blue Berry Icebox Cake

Icebox cakes are no-bake cakes that set up in the refrigerator, making them a perfect choice for a summer dessert when you need a recipe that won’t heat up the kitchen. Instead of using actual cake, they use cookies (usually chocolate wafer cookies or graham crackers) to give the cake structure – and it is surprising to see how cake-like they become while the dessert ...

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for Ice Cream

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for Ice Cream

While I don’t typically eat cookie dough straight from my mixing bowl, I do have a soft spot for chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. The chewy chunks of cookie dough are always a welcome addition to a good vanilla ice cream in my book, adding not only texture, but flavors of vanilla, brown sugar and chocolate. You can make your own cookie dough ice ... Read More »

Apricot Ice Cream

Fresh stone fruits are wonderful to work with in the kitchen, whether you’re talking about peaches, plums, nectarines or any other fruits in the family. They’re delicious and versatile, so you can eat them out of hand or bake them into anything from a fruit cobbler to a pie. Apricots are one stone fruit that I particularly enjoy and they don’t get featured in recipes ... Read More »

No Churn Mocha Marshmallow Chip Ice Cream

Mocha Marshmallow Chip Ice Cream

One of my favorite uses for sweetened condensed milk is no churn ice cream. Since the sweetened condensed milk is both thick and creamy, it makes a wonderful ice cream base that will save you a lot of time (and ensure you don’t need any fancy equipment) when you’re in the mood for ice cream. This Mocha Marshmallow Chip Ice Cream combines some of my ... Read More »

Three Ingredient Lime Sorbet

Homemade Lime Sorbet

Sorbet is a wonderful dessert to make when you want something that is light, but still has lots of flavor. While a scoop of ice crema is still a welcome treat on a hot day, it just won’t refresh you the same way that a fruity sorbet will. Sorbets are typically made with fruit, sugar and water, with other elements added in to add complexity ... Read More »

There are some desserts that should never go out of style and a Baked Alaska is one of them. This retro classic is well worth making and it is always a hit when you bring it out at a party. My Brownie Baked Alaska starts with a dark chocolate brownie base that is topped with vanilla ice cream and covered in a layer of fluffy ... Read More »
