Bacon Sundae

Bacon Sundae - The Ultimate Ice Cream Sundae

Over the last week I have seen a few ads for the bacon sundae at Denny’s.  I looked at it and it seemed like a good idea. However, I wanted to take it over the top.  So I decided to make my own.  I fooled around with the basic concept and came up with the … Read moreBacon Sundae

Chocolate Ice Cream

Chocolate Ice Cream

Over the past month I gave up ice cream for lent.  Then half way through lent, I purchased an ice cream machine.  I know, bad idea, but it was extremely cheap and I did not believe that it would too tempting.  I tried to keep it in the box until after lent, but it was too tempting and I made a couple sorbets.  Not quite ice cream so it gave me enough leeway to use it.  Well last Saturday night I started prepping some chocolate ice cream to be made bright and early on Easter Sunday.  It was totally delicious.

Strawberry Sorbet

Last weekend my Mom made me Strawberry Jam.  I figured the strawberries would be alright, but not too ripe.  I mean, they are not even close to being in season.  To my surprise the strawberries were plump, beautiful and full of flavor.  Got to love modern chemistry.  So I picked up some more and decided to make some sorbet.

Strawberry Sorbet

The sorbet is sweet and delicious.  Easily the best thing that I have made in the ice cream machine.

Orange Sherbet

The other day I needed to pick up some supplies for my house guests so I stopped by Marshall’s.  While roaming through the aisles I found a white box.  A large white box.  It had a couple red clearance price tags on it.  Each one going lower and lower all the way to $29.  So I, being the curious fellow that I am, opened the box.  To my disbelief it was a stainless steel Cuisinart Ice Cream and Yogurt maker.  Yep, can’t beat that price with a stick.  So I boxed it back up and threw it into my cart.  I know what you are thinking, don’t judge me for having a cart in Marshall’s.  I like to buy a lot of things on discount.  Where do you think I get all of my sweet plates and bowls for my photos.  Sorry got a little off track.  So now I own an ice cream maker and infinitely expanded my repertoire of recipes.   Today I am starting off with Orange Sorbet.
