Well I hope you all have had a great weekend. I apologize for the irregular blogging over the last few weeks but I have been on vacation. I just got back yesterday from traveling in Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. It was a blast and we enjoyed every minute of it. I am already missing the mountains, cooler weather, and slower pace lifestyle that we experienced up there (things we don’t have so much here in Texas). But it is good to be home, catch up on my sleep, and slowly catch up on blogging and blog reading (not so thrilled to have to go back to work tomorrow, but that’s life, right?).
Because life has been so busy for me here, getting ready for vacation and then being gone so long, I didn’t know if I was going to be able to do a cookbook of the month review for July. But I think I am going to be able to make it possible! So, (hopefully) for this last week of July I will share four or five recipes from the sweet cookbook I have chosen, The Ultimate Ice Cream Book, by Bruce Weinstein.
What a perfect book to cover during one of the hottest times of year. What doesn’t get more tasty than ice cream, I know I could totally eat it everyday if I was forced too! : )
I really like this cookbook so far, however compared to a lot of cookbooks it is rather plan. There are no pictures and no cooking times listed (however when making ice cream, as I have learned it requires several small steps, sometimes over the course of several days to reach the final amazing product).
This book does cover all the ice cream essentials. Of course ice cream, ice cream cones, sorbets and granitas, ice cream toppings, and ice cream drinks. I also like that for each recipe listed there is several variations of that same recipe listed below that take that basic chocolate recipe up a notch.
It should be a fun week covering this cookbook and maybe if you are lucky I will share a few photos and stories from my vacation!
