Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts

TWD: Burnt Sugar Ice Cream

I have just 3 letters to describe this week’s TWD pick, Burnt Sugar Ice Cream. O.M.G. Now obviously, this stands for Oh-so-delicious Mind-blowingly Good Or, judging by the tasty puddle rapidly forming underneath all my ice cream scoops, despite hours of chilling and lightening-quick scooping, it stands for Outrageously Melty & Guzzle-able Yes, we absolutely…

The Ballad of A Bad Bundt Pan

This week’s TWD recipe was Marbled Mocha-Walnut Bundt Cake. Another bundt cake? You know what this means: Liz vs. Her Bundt Pan: Ultimate Death Match VI: Bake-Off Boogaloo Remember last week when I made that Coconut Tea Cake in the bundt pan, and I whined about how my “nonstick” bundt pan was no such thing?…

Milk Chocolate Cremeux with Coconut Sorbet

This may sound odd coming from a sugarphile, but I don’t usually order dessert when eating out. I eat so many sweets at work and at home as it is, I feel like it has to be really worth it for me to spend my dining-out calories on more dessert. But when the husband and…

TWD: Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Sandwiches and Bonbons

Let it be known: this was the week all of my husband’s dreams came true. You see, he is a simple man, with simple dessert needs. While I love deep, dark chocolate cakes drizzled with five kinds of sauces and topped with sorbets that involve obscure ingredient combinations, he likes vanilla ice cream. By itself….

TWD: Peach-Honey Ice Cream

I’m baaaaaack! Peru was amazing. We hiked the Inca Trail up to Machu Picchu: And visited various islands on Lake Titicaca, including these crazy floating islands made entirely of reeds: We explored the rainforest and saw way too many enormous insects and spiders, but also lots of cool stuff, like a whole family of capybaras!…

TWD: Caramel Crunch Bars

These Caramel Crunch Bars are like the Clark Kent of baked goods. Mild in manner, mundane in appearance, but put them in a telephone booth…okay, the analogy kind of breaks down after awhile. But my point remains: these simple little bars are spectacular. From the description and procedure, I was expecting these to be kind…

Daring Bakers: There’s A Spoom in My Tuile

This post should be about tuiles. The Daring Bakers challenge this month was to make tuiles: impossibly light, thin cookies that are traditionally shaped like the roof tiles that give them their name. We had our choice of making traditional sweet tuiles, nougatine tuiles, chocolate tuiles, or savory tuiles. Yes, indeed, there are many different…

Resolution Breaker Tollhouse Pie

Happy New Year! Have you made your resolutions yet? Do any of them happen to involve healthier eating and/or weight loss? If so, you may want to stop reading now, because this month’s Pies With That challenge was all about creating a pie so tempting, it could only be called a resolution breaker. It didn’t…
