frangelico + coffee no-churn ice cream (and ice cream sandwiches)

Thursday, May 30, 2013

A while back I made a delicious concoction involving Frangelico and coffee. Soon after I was contacted by the nice folks at Frangelico to create a recipe, which I said yes to immediately, because I love baking with their liqueur. Prior to my frozen drink, I had actually only used Frangelico in baking and cooking, and worked at a coffeehouse that made a delicious Bundt cake involving the…

toasted sesame ice cream sandwich cookies with no-churn chinese 5-spice coconut milk ice cream

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Ahem. These little ice cream sandwiches are so good. I wasn’t too sure about them, when I started scheming them up. But I love Chinese 5-spice, and toasted sesame oil, and coconut milk, and cookies and ice cream and crystallized ginger. So why not make dessert instead of stir fry? You are either totally into this right now, or wrinkling up your nose at me. I understand. But…

raspberry crème fraîche ice cream cake

Thursday, August 3, 2017

‘Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.’ – Henry James I have to agree with Mr. James here; summer is magic. With my littles at home and days filled with swimming, reading, long walks, trips to the library, canoeing, hammocking, lego building, and not homeworking, I am entering August on tiptoes, knowing there are only…

strawberries + cream amaretti cookies (gluten free) | guest post from top with cinnamon

Monday, June 17, 2013

It’s the summer of fun! For reasons before mentioned, I am lining up guest posts for this summer. Up next is Izy from Top With Cinnamon. I’ve been enamored with Izy’s photographs for awhile now, and when I found out she was 17 years old, I was even more impressed. I wish I would have had this much ambition (and had been this cool) in high school. This…

no-churn pumpkin ice cream

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

I wasn’t so sure about pumpkin ice cream. But I couldn’t get it out of my head. Pumpkin sometimes ends up in odd places [for instance, in my latte], but once Fall arrives and sweaters are part of my everyday attire, that big orange gourd calls to me, promising comfort. This little experiment wasn’t a disappointment. Subtle pumpkin flavor, warm spices and creamy texture make this no-churn version…

chocolate chip snack cake

I have another snack cake for you, this time one with a yellow cake base and mini chocolate chips. I must admit I’ve been enjoying these snack cakes more than layer cakes – the frosting to cake ratio is perfect, and eating small squares of cake instead of giant triangles somehow feels just right. If you prefer an all chocolate cake, I have that for you here. *****************************************…

rhubarb blackberry streusel buns + a mauviel giveaway

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Rhubarb-blackberry streusel buns might be my new favorite breakfast indulgence, coming in right behind my beloved all-stars: straight-up cinnamon rolls. These rolls remind me of a perfect coffeecake: with a tender dough, a swirl of jam, and then plenty of streusel and icing gracing the top of each. I have a recipe for the rhubarb-blackberry jam included here, but if you are in a hurry, any store-bought jam…

chocolate snack cake

I posted a picture of a chocolate snack cake on Instagram this week and had many requests for a recipe, so here it is. I’ve featured a snack cake on my site before, but found that cake recipe to occasionally sink in the middle, so I’m offering you this one instead. It is based on my favorite cake recipe, is tried and true, and is very chocolatey and…
