Dairy-Free Chocolate Sherbet Recipe

Dairy-Free Chocolate Sherbet

So, as we all know, I’m sure, the difference between sherbet and sorbet is that sherbet contains dairy (usually milk, not cream) and sorbet does not. Sherbet and ice cream differ in that classic French ice cream contains cream and egg yolks. Now that we are all on the same page, I offer my sincere […] Read more…

Lemon-Gingersnap Ice Cream Sandwiches

Heat and humidity got you down? I have just the thing to help cool off: lush ice cream with a major citrus-y kick, paired with cool spicy gingersnaps. Oh ice cream maker, I love you all the time, but I love you most of all in summer. For the Lemon Ice Cream: 2 c. heavy cream, […] Read more…

Bittersweet Chocolate Pudding

Bittersweet Chocolate Pudding

I really think February is just the worst month.  I know it’s a short one, but it drags on FOREVER.  In the Northern Hemisphere it’s still cold and dark, and this year has been particularly full of ice and wet and slush and snow and also the COLD, goodness gracious.  The major holidays are over, […] Read more…

Crispy Chewy Coconut Macaroons

Lately it seems that the French version of the classic macaron/macaroon cookie is getting all the love.  Don’t get me wrong: les macarons are crazy delicious– delicately flavored, tender, chewy, and light-as-air confections.  That’s all well and good, but those suckers can be super finicky to make at home.  There’s nothing especially complicated about them– […] Read more…
