Chocolate Guinness Frozen Yogurt

Chocolate Guinness Frozen Yogurt

The release of my new cookbook, How To Make Frozen Yogurt, is just a few days after St Patrick’s Day this year, so I decided to celebrate the holiday by doing something a little different than making a batch of corned beef and cabbage. I made frozen yogurt instead, and with an Irish twist. I’ve had Guinness ice creams before, but I’ve never had anything quite ... Read More »

Vanilla Caramel Affogato

Vanilla Caramel Affogato

An affogato is a traditional Italian espresso-based dessert. The full name is really “affogato al cafe” or “drowned in coffee,” in Italian. The name really suits the dessert, as it consists of a scoop of ice cream/gelato with a shot of hot espresso poured over the top. I like the classics, so vanilla ice cream or gelato with strong espresso is always my default affogato, ... Read More »

Count Chocula Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Count Chocula Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Cereal milk ice cream is exactly what it sounds like: ice cream that tastes like the milk that is left behind after eating a bowl full of cereal, preferably a sugary cereal.

Homemade Cherry Popsicles

Cherry Popsicles

Bright red cherry popsicles were always my favorite when I was a kid. I loved their sweetness and they way that they dyed my lips and tongue bright red as I ate them. Over the years, I lost interest in having my tongue dyed bright red for hours at a time and I stopped eating the popsicles. It was just as well because a cherry ... Read More »

Strawberry Basil Sorbet

Strawberry Basil Sorbet

An overripe strawberry is one that is sweet and juicy, but starting to lose a little bit of its firmness. It’s not the kind of berry that you want to add to a fresh fruit salad because it is not picture-perfect, but it still tastes delicious and there is no reason to throw it out. A basket full of overripe strawberries is the perfect excuse ... Read More »
