Chai Ice Cream (No Ice Cream Maker Required!)

[Smooth, creamy. . . and oh so easy!] I’m so glad it’s ice cream season again, aren’t you?  Not because it coincides with climbing temperatures (though the 25C (78F) and sunny days are certainly welcome).  Not because it means the HH and I can bring The Girls down to the Beaches for lakeside walks (“We […]

Black-Bottomed Almond Mousse Pie with Chocolate Ganache Drizzle

I actually first made this pie quite a while ago (some of you may remember that I posted about it on Facebook), but I’ve been holding on to the recipe, clinging to it like Scrooge gripping his last penny so that I could save it for this very post. Seriously, this is one is a show-stopper, a […]

Flash in the Pan: Strawberry Chia Fluff for Spring

[Sometimes, you just want a dish that’s quick and easy–no fuss.  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).] […]

Mint Chip Ice Cream–No Ice Cream Maker Required!

After reading through the comments on yesterday’s SOS Challenge reveal post (this month’s ingredient is MINT and Kim and I can’t wait to see what y’all cook up with it!), I realized I may have sounded perhaps a wee bit whiney about everything that’s going on in my life right now.  I certainly didn’t mean […]

Lighten Up: New Year Musings and Crimson Mousse

So.  Are we sick of giveaways yet? 😉 Okay, I guess that the chance to win something you like–especially if it involves food you like–never becomes stale (even if the aforementioned foodstuff does). Still, with 2010 barely upon us, I’ve decided it’s time to give the giveaways a break.  I love being able to supply […]

Lucky Comestible 6(3): Apple and Red Wine Soup (with Anti-Candida Variation)

[I thought it would be fun to run a little series over here at DDD: I’ll profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I’ve recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days.  The series is presented on an occasional (and entirely arbitrary) basis, before I move on to the next lucky comestible. This is the third entry on apples.] […]

Flash in the Pan: Cheryl’s Creamy Coconut Collards

[Sometimes, you just want to eat something now.  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).] Before I […]

So Dreamy: Rachel Albert-Matesz’s The Ice Dream Cookbook* (and Recipe!)

* Or, Dream a Little Dream of Rich, Creamy, Delectable Frozen Desserts [Dried Apricot Pistachio Ice Dream] When I was contacted about a month ago to see if I’d be interested in examining a review copy of the upcoming The Ice Dream Cookbook by Chef Rachel Albert-Matesz, I have to admit I was a bit hesitant at […]

Comfort from the Cold: Spiced Brown Basmati Rice Pudding

Somewhere around the first week of December (either that or the 3rd day there’s snow on the ground, whichever comes first), I decide I’ve had enough of winter.  Bah!  Who needs lawns covered in a glistening, pristine blanket of white?  Who needs billowy undulations of snow-covered hills along the roadside?  Who needs that dainty spray […]
