Pomegranate Ice Cream and Cocoa Nib Brownie Sandwiches

I know, the photo turned out a bit scary looking. There was no way to fix it since the rest of the batch was eaten earlier. Oh boy, were they good! I guess there’s no need to tell you about… Continue reading →

Some Like It Hot: Fig and Chile Chocolate Cake with Cinnamon Ice Cream

For me, it’s like heaven on earth. I’m mad about spicy chocolate; Dagoba’s “Xocolatl” is my all time favorite bar. And this cake is my favorite flourless chocolate cake. It’s spiced just enough (you won’t burn your palate, don’t worry)…. Continue reading →

Ring of Saturn Peach “Doughnuts” with Vanilla Ice Cream

The recipe caught my eye while I was browsing through the “Desserts by the Yard”. The peaches called “Saturn rings” were so cute and the way of cooking them and serving was very promising. But honestly I thought I’d never… Continue reading →

Stracciatella Gelato

According to Sherry Yard, this is the most popular ice cream among calorie-counting movie stars at “Spago”. No wonder, it’s a guilt-free treat – the ice cream doesn’t contain any egg yolks or cream, it’s basically frozen milk. But, it… Continue reading →
