Hello – it’s Emily.

Fig Leaf and Honey Ice Cream

In terms of favorite ice cream flavors, it’s likely that Fig Leaf Ice Cream isn’t at the top of your list. But once you taste it, you’ll probably add it. It’s tricky to provide an exact description of the flavor, which is coconutty, and references figs, but is its own flavor in and of itself. Living in a city, I don’t have a fig tree,…

Devil’s Food Chocolate Ice Cream

There are a lot of ways to do the same thing, just as there are a variety of ways to get to the same place.

Chocolate Ice Cream

I haven’t visited Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Ohio, but I’ve heard Jeni Bauer’s ice cream was sensational. Because I can’t get everywhere – no matter how hard I try – her ice cream came to me in the form of her book, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home. When Jeni’s book was released, we had a nice interchange via e-mail about ice cream making,…

No-churn, Easy Chocolate Ice Cream recipe

This dessert is the result of a happy accident. I’d been developing some recipes and after a couple of furious days of recipe testing, I had a zillion containers of various odds and ends lying around. I mixed and matched things together, blended them all up, and stuck the mixture in the freezer. A bit later, I tentatively dug in my spoon in and tasted…
