Peach Ice Cream Recipe

Before I moved to Austin, I really didn’t have a good understanding of what the South was like. Truth be told, I really didn’t think much of it other than what I saw on tv or heard about from [...]


Healthy Fudgesicles

Okay.  I'm in love with popsicles. And, well, chocolate, too for that matter. Put them together and I'm a happy camper. But -- wait -- these are *gasp* healthy chocolate popsicles?!? Awesome. Growing up, I absolutely loved fudgsicles.  Like -- if we had a box of 6 or 7 of them, they wouldn't be safe [...]

Lemon Blueberry Sorbet

I wanted to share a sorbet recipe with you that has seen many changes and variations in our home over the last few years. It started as a lemon sorbet.  Then I added whole blueberries.  Then I removed the granulated sugar and used honey.  Then I blended it. With each new variation, it gets better [...]

Pineapple Coconut Ice Cream

Pineapple Coconut Ice Cream

Peanut butter and jelly.  Chocolate and almonds.  Berries and vanilla.  Lemon and mint. And, of course, pineapple and coconut.  Such great flavor combinations.

I don't know about you, but I find it odd how often I see people settle for mediocre mint chocolate chip ice cream. Really? Where's the cool mint flavor?  Where [...]

Watermelon Sorbet by Lacey Baier, a sweet pea chef

Watermelon Sorbet

Can I just say how much I love summer? I mean, really. Isn't it just the best time of year? But, then again, I do really enjoy winter too...with the change in the weather (well, the California "weather changes") and the holidays.  I guess life is pretty much good all year-round.  Hard to complain these [...]

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Dustin, Jordan and I all visited Bella Vista, Arkansas over the Memorial Day weekend so that Jordan could meet her Grandpa Rollie and her Great Grandma Aggie for the first time. We all had a wonderful time visiting with family, taking long strolls out in the country and, of course, eating good 'ole country fried [...]
