French Vanilla

Creme anglaise is a classic French custard sauce made with egg yolks, sugar and milk or cream (as well as vanilla for flavoring) that is cooked until just thickened. This sauce can be served on its own as a dessert accompaniment, alongside fruit or cake, but it can also be put to other uses and one of the very best is when you put it ... Read More »

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

I love a good pumpkin pie and, while I will always make the classic recipe in the fall, I like the flavors enough to want to experiment with them. Sometimes, this means putting a twist on the pie by adding other elements and turning it into something like a Chocolate Pumpkin Pie. Other times, this means taking those pie ingredients and putting them in a ... Read More »

Zyliss Ice Cream Scoop, reviewed

Zyliss Ice Cream Scoop

I have never had very good luck with ice cream scoops. I’ve tried all kinds in search of a scoop that will cut through firm ice cream easily, make decent looking scoops and release the ice cream without a hassle.

Homemade Fudgsicles

Homemade Fudgsicles

Fudgsicles were one of my favorite summertime treats as a child. They are chocolate popsicles, with a great chocolate flavor to them. I’ve seen lots of recipes for Fudgsicles over the years and have noticed that, in spite of their names, none of them are really quite like the original Fudgsicles. Oh, they’re all very chocolaty, but many recipes call for lots of cream or ... Read More »

Quick Vanilla Ice Cream

Vanilla Sour Cream Ice Cream

There are lots of great ice creams out there, but, as is the case with so many foods, there is something a little extra special about making your own ice cream at home. The disadvantage of making your own ice cream is that it tends to take longer than running out to the store to buy some. Many ice cream bases start with a mixture ... Read More »

Peach Pie Ice Cream

Peach Pie Ice Cream

A slice of fresh fruit pie is often best when accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream. That cool, creamy ice cream is the perfect match for a slice of still warm pie. For a bit of a twist on that idea, I took the pie and put it into my ice cream instead of doing things the other way around! That means that ... Read More »
