9781440524974I’m really not even sure what to say.

My cookbook is officially out.

As in, available to purchase on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, at Books-a-Million – pretty much any bookstore.  MY cookbook.  In stores.


So, I thought a little celebration was in order.  What better way to celebrate than with a little drink and something delicious?


I combined the two in a new sherbet recipe that I have to admit – knocks my socks off.

The texture is unlike anything I’ve ever had.  It’s soft, smooth, subtly crisp.  The ripe bananas are the culprit for the creamy texture, but they in no way overpower the other flavors – the tang from the kiwi, the sweet of the fresh red strawberries.  And the Moscato?  Oooh, it adds a richness that’s hard to describe.  It’s amazing.  Fresh is the appropriate word.  Fresca. Freshapalooza.

Try it.


Banana, Strawberry, Kiwi & Moscato Wine Sherbet

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Yield: 1 quart


  • 2 ripe Dole Bananas, ripe
  • 2 cups strawberries, fresh, capped
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup Moscato Wine (I used Gallo Family Vineyards)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until cool.
  2. Place puree into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions. Freeze and enjoy!

Now, what’s a party without a doorprize?  How about something else that’s Freshapalooza?

Like, the brand new KitchenAid 5 Quart Mixer in Crystal Blue?  It’s the hottest color of the moment, and I adore it, don’t you?  While I don’t have this particular color, I do have this model, and it is the perfect size for SO many applications…like making sherbet, for example.  All you need is the ice cream bowl attachment, which I think is the bee’s knees.  But first – you need the mixer.

You do want to win one, don’t you?

Of course you do.

To win, just tell me – what do you think of this new color?  Leave me a comment, and you are entered to win!

For more chances:

There you are – 6 chances to win.  Just be sure to leave a SEPARATE COMMENT for each one you do…Good luck!

Contest is open until May 23 at 11:59pm EST.  Prize is courtesy of and shipped by KitchenAid.  US Addresses only.

I love this new color! It reminds me of of sparkling seas in all the coastal places I have been and want to go. It’s refreshing and delicious and will add life to any cook’s kitchen and make them smile!

This is the type of color that could make you change everything in your kitchen just so it matched. I would almost refuse to make anything except for adorable cakes and pastries in this gorgeous appliance!

LOVE this color for just about anything!

It’s the exact shade of my kitchen accessories like my chandelier shades, French door curtains, kitchen linens,etc. Always wanted a kitchen aid mixer but would never be able to afford one!
