Apricot & Earl Grey Ice Cream

August 25th, 2013

One of my favourite things about this time of year is all the stone fruits that are available – nectarines, cherries, apricots… there isn’t one I dislike. They come in big bags and baskets overflowing, and I’m never able to finish them all before they go bad – so I turn to making baked goods […]

Blueberry Basil Ice Cream

July 30th, 2012

It’s berry season! And while watching Olympians compete and thinking I should do some exercise, I’m sitting here eating ice cream. (What? I’ll work it off later.) At least this version is chock full of blueberries, a great source of vitamin K and antioxidants. The addition of basil lends an unexpected complexity – it may […]

Coffee Almond Ice Cream

July 18th, 2012

Good morning world, I’m ready for you. It may be disgustingly hot out – bad weather for a hot coffee – but I’ve had my caffeine fix, and what a fix it is. Ice cream in the morning? That’s nothing – I’ve been known to eat ice cream in the dead of winter, dressed in […]

Raspberry Rhubarb Ice Cream

July 4th, 2012

109F (43C!). That’s what it feels like outside right now, and I’m taking shelter in my cool basement. One of my favourite things about summer days, when I’m not cozying up to air conditioning, is sitting down with friends (or alone!) to enjoy the contrast of cold ice cream and hot sun. As a child […]

Coconut Lime Ice Cream

June 17th, 2012

It’s been an incredibly hot weekend! Helping out with my dear friend A’s wedding has been keeping me busy, and one of the best things about celebrating these momentous occasions is seeing all the people they bring together. I’ve been able to reunite with so many old friends, some of whom I didn’t even expect […]

Candied Kumquat Ice Cream with Crushed Salted Pistachios & Dark Chocolate

January 22nd, 2012

Kumquats are the grape-sized runts of the citrus litter and an eccentric fruit, for, lacking much but bitter seeds on the inside, it’s the sweet, citrusy-astringent skin that is meant to be eaten. Despite the absence of tasty flesh, their irresistibly miniature stature ensures that whenever I see them, I cannot avoid picking some up, […]

Poached Pear & Candied Ginger Ice Cream

December 18th, 2011

Pear and ginger are one of my most favourite flavour combinations. You know the ones you always turn to, and they never seem to get old? That’s what the marriage of pear and ginger is to me. I had purchased some pears with the intention of making ice cream, and waited dutifully for them to […]

Lemon Curd Ice Cream

August 7th, 2011

Hello! It’s a rainy Sunday over here, but I haven’t been staying in – I just got back from brunch and window shopping with a group of dear friends. In case it’s as humid and hot where you are as it is here, how about a bit of ice cream? Lemon Curd Ice Cream Juice […]

Brazilian Pineapple Ice Cream

March 25th, 2011

Yesterday, winter decided to return and bestow upon us the gift of an all-day snowstorm. I know, right? How thoughtful. I had neglected to check the forecast the night before, and awoke to a veil of snowflakes that would not lift until night fell. So to counteract the dreariness of the day, I decided to […]
