Ice Cream Terrine: Red, White and Blue
This US Independence Day weekend, I made my very first Ice Cream Terrine: a red, white and blue layered ‘ice cream cake’ WITH NO ADDITIONAL FOOD COLORING.
OK, I guess the RED of the beets turned out to be more of a magenta, and the BLUE is more of an aqua…
Beet-Orange ice cream. Made with pureed sweet roasted beets, orange zest and mascarpone. Don’t be put off by the “beet”. This tastes like a creamsicle.
Lime-Cardamom Frozen Yogurt. A delicious tangy lime flavor with a hint of cardamon.
Blue Moon ice cream. Sweet pineapple and Blue Curacao…Yum.
Happy 4th. of July!

The Ice Cream Lifestyle #2
I wish I had remembered to take photos! I had a ‘Ice Cream Soiree’ at my home last night with some fabulous friends. The flavors on the table were:
Coconut & Cherries
Goat Cheese & Pears
Vanilla Peach & Blackberries
It was so much fun, and even more so to receive glowing compliments from my foodie friends/ice-cream tasters.
Aw! Better than Scoops? Wow, what a compliment!
On June 26th, 2011 I am going to be at the Pasadena Food Swap with some homemade ice cream. I have never participated in a public food swapping/sharing event before and I’m both nervous and excited. Sign up! Join in! See you there!

The Ice Cream Lifestyle #1
In addition to my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, here are a few things that I can no longer live without:
Hand immersion blender - I recently bought one and I love it!!! So much easier to clean than a regular blender.
Microplane Zester - According to David Lebovitz in The Perfect Scoop, you have to double the amount of zest used in a recipe when you use a regular grater. Bye bye, regular grater.
Ice Cream Containers by SweetBliss - From experience, when you gift ice cream in plastic containers, you don’t get those containers back.
