National Moscato Day…Strawberry Pink Moscato Sorbet

Being a food blogger is good stuff sometimes. Like last week, when I was invited to the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills for an amazing lunch, and sat mere feet away from Harry Connick, Jr.  Or like last year, when I became friends with Duff Goldman, and he offered to write the foreword to my […]

Dragon Fruit Banana Sherbet…and a Giveaway

For more than three years, I have been on the hunt for Dragon Fruit. Not a joke – I saw it on Tastespotting back in 2008, and thought it was the most beautiful fruit I had ever laid eyes on.  The described flavor of strawberry and kiwi?  Only made matters worse… I HAD to have […]

Crunchy Biscoff Ice Cream {And a Giveaway!}

Biscoff Spread is the devil. I swear, once you open a jar, that’s the end.  It can sit in the cupboard, tightly sealed, teasing you  from its perch, but you can overcome your desire to eat it, if only that seal is intact.  That all goes out the window the second you twist it open. […]

Fresh Strawberry and Lemon Sherbet

Many people use Sorbet and Sherbet interchangeably.  Me included.  So, could this be Fresh Strawberry and Lemon Sorbet? It could. For most though, a sherbet includes some kind of dairy, typically cream, whereas sorbets tend not to. I’m no judge, no jury, though, so call it what you like…as long as you call it delicious. […]

50 Shades of Grey…Very Vanilla Ice Cream

I’m sorry, you guys.  I couldn’t resist. 50 Shades of Grey has infiltrated my life, and now everyone – that means you – must suffer. I have many, many thoughts on this trilogy- 50 Shades of Grey, 50 Shades Darker, 50 Shades Freed…some of which it’s likely best I keep to myself.  But who am […]

Banana, Strawberry, Kiwi & Moscato Wine Sherbet {& A KitchenAid Mixer Giveaway!}

I’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. Bizarro-World. So, I thought a little celebration was in order.  What better way to celebrate than with a little drink […]

White Chocolate Cheesecake and Coconut Bliss Milkshake

Today is the official day of White Chocolate Cheesecake.  Did you know that?  Well, it is. But if you are just now reading this, you may very well have missed your cheesecake baking opportunity.  Never fear, dear reader…I’ve got you covered. As I mentioned in another post, I’ve been developing some recipes for Nestle using […]

Caramelized Peach & Ginger Cream Cheese Caramel Swirl Ice Cream

Yesterday was surreal, in lots of ways.  Some things, I can’t even begin to tell you.  Some things, I CAN.  Take, for example, Brandi came up for a bit and hung out. That’s not the surreal part. The surreal part is our discussion of our upcoming cookbooks…and how they are now on Amazon, available for […]

Fresh Fig Gelato

  My friend Brandi has a wonderful garden.  I’m not sure who maintains it – be it elves, gnomes, obsessive compulsive hobos – I have no idea.  But it is pristine, weed-free and full of produce…and there is no way two working adults can maintain a garden in this fashion. She also has a couple […]
