Ricotta Pine Nut Brittle Ice-Cream

Does anybody else ask their visitors or company for food suggestions?  Sometimes I find planning a menu harder than executing one.  I often ask people who will be visiting  what their favorite ice-cream flavor is, or friends we plan to have for dinner if there’s something they miss and crave.   I don’t always promise that […]

Pistachio Ice-Cream

It’s been awhile since I’ve been here.  Life has been busy. We live in an area where the economy and tourism work on high season and low season.  We are still in high season.  Which is good for the economy, tourism, and my social life.  Not so good on my nightly hours of sleep.  That […]

Ever try playing this game? It’s a lot […]

Irish Cream Fudge Ice-Cream

I love making ice-cream.  I love offering ice-cream to people when they come over. This is inevitably what happens. “We have ice-cream if anyone is interested.”  No response. “We have … (insert recently made ice-cream flavor here).”  More silence.  Then, “ummmm did you make that? Because you can’t buy that here.”  “Well yes I did […]
