Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Blueberry Balsamic Sauce

Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Blueberry Balsamic Sauce
This is going to fall under the don’t knock it until you’ve tried it category. It is an ice cream I’m seriously in love with. I first tasted a sweet corn ice cream a few years back and I’ll admit I was skeptical at first, I mean it’s corn and ice cream that shouldn’t work but I’m SO glad I tasted it because it rocked my ice cream loving world. When there’s fresh corn I’m making sweet corn ice cream. Period. Pair that with a knock your socks off Blueberry Balsamic sauce and you’ll be making it all summer too.

Peach Bellini Sorbet

Peach Bellini Sorbet

Peach Bellinis are one of my favorite spring and summer time drinks. I am after all originally from Georgia which means I kind of have to like peaches (and peanuts, preferably boiled (yes boiled) but that’s another story for another day). I would lose my Georgia Peach card if I didn’t and I’m just not willing to give that up. Nope. There’s something about biting into a fresh juicy Georgia peach (I’m sure there are lovely peaches grown elsewhere but again back to that whole being born in Georgia thing. Route for the home team and all.) you know it’s a good peach when you end up with sticky sweet lips afterwards. And okay a sticky chin too, that’s just going to happen, unless you’re perfect and well I’m not so don’t forget the wipes.

Chicken and Bacon Rotini

Chicken and Bacon Rotini
Chicken and pasta with bacon. I’m in. Every. Single. Time. What I love about this pasta dish, well it would probably be easier for me to tell you what I don’t like about it. That would be that somebody else wasn’t making it for me. That’s about it. There are so many plus items for this dish. It’s made in less than 30 minutes. You can use leftover grilled chicken and bacon to save time. Before the emails start flying into my inbox asking how does anyone have leftover bacon let me tell you. You have to HIDE a few slices when you’re cooking it for breakfast and then you can use it during your evening cooking. Simple. That is if you’re good at hiding things. Otherwise just plan on making more bacon. There are worse things.

Flourless Black Forest Cake

Flourless Black Forest Cake

Don’t let the flourless fool you, this cake is absolutely amazing, and yes you can make a cake without flour. I have to say (and I’ve probably said this before) but I had my reservations when I first started making flourless cakes way back when. I mean a cake without flour? How and can that even be good? The answer to all the things is YES. This my friends is a whole lot of dark chocolate gluten free goodness on a plate and you should make it immediately.

Espresso Buttercream

Espresso Buttercream

Coffee ain’t just for drinking friends. Nope, it’s also for doing all kinds of other stuff with, like turning it into a beautiful blissed out buttercream. If you like COFFEE as much as I do you’re going to love this hopped up espresso buttercream. It’s going to give your dessert a little kick in the caffeinated pants. I mean that’s if you can manage to not eat all of it before it’s time to slather it onto a cake, or cupcakes, or between two cookies. Whatever you’ve got handy, a spoon. We won’t judge.

Honey and Pistachio Panna Cotta

Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta
It’s APRIL tomorrow people. I just can’t believe it. Where has the first quarter of this year gone? It’s passed me by in a cold white flash I guess. Not that I’m not looking forward to spring. Real spring that is. The one with flowers popping up, much much warm weather, my hands in the garden, cute wedges on my feet and lots of wind therapy and tangled hair from the open road. Not this current bi-polar spring that is going on. I’ve got whip lash trying to keep up. Heater on. Heater off. Shorts sleeves. Long sleeves. Gah. I’m going to drown myself in a few cups of this panna cotta and all will be well until the weather makes up it’s mind.
