Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream & Sorbet ~ Savory Simple

I’ve always been an indecisive person. As I’ve grown older and more confident in my ways, my indecisiveness has become less about concern over making the wrong decisions and more about making sure I always make the best decision in any given situation. Does that sound ridiculous? Yes, I thought so. [Read more...]

Malted Condensed Milk Ice Cream ~ Savory Simple

You guys, I’ve been having some issues with rage. Not road rage or anything quite so dangerous. No, I’m talking about a different form of rage. One that I believe is common among many in our society but hasn’t been addressed by the media. I think people are too ashamed to speak up about it right now and if we can raise public awareness, perhaps more citizens will be able to come forward. That’s why I’m willing to talk about my problem right here and now. [Read more...]

Nutella Irish Cream Milkshake ~ Savory Simple ~ www.savorysimple.netNutella Irish Cream Milkshake

When Erin from Dinners, Dishes and Desserts asked me to guest post for her while she travels through Japan I immediately agreed. Just being able to talk to someone else about Japan was so exciting. Jeff and I spent 3 weeks there in 2009 and I’ve had daydreams about going back ever since. I had no idea how much I’d fall in love with everything- the culture, the scenery, the food (of course)… we spent time in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Hiroshima. We had dinner and drinks at The Park Hyatt where Lost in Translation was filmed. We stood on top of Mt. Fuji and wandered the endless underground malls between subway stations. We sample kobe in Kobe. If you’ll indulge me, I’d love to share some photos from our trip. [Read more...]

Grapefruit Curd Ice Cream ~ Savory Simple

This might just be my new favorite ice cream.  I really love any type of curd- lemon, passionfruit, blood orange… you name it and you’ll probably find it on this site somewhere.  Just after school when I was working my brief stint as a pastry chef, we made lemon curd ice cream one night.  It was as decadent as it sounds- rich and tangy with that custard flavor you only get from a curd.  Much better than a regular lemon ice cream.  I’ve been wanting to make it again ever since.  What I particularly love about this version is that the grapefruit offers a slight bitterness in the background; not something you often taste in ice cream or even a regular curd.  But it works really well here and balances the sweetness.

Don’t use a processed store-bought grapefruit juice to make this.  It won’t taste right.  The only exception can be found in some higher end grocers like Whole Foods.  If the container says something like “100% fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice” you’re probably ok.  Double check the ingredient list to make sure there are no additives or anything from concentrate.  Trust me, I learned this lesson the hard way.  The safest bet will always be juicing the grapefruit yourself.

Basil Mint Ice Cream

There are many things I love about our new home.  Friendly neighbors, an attic, packages delivered to my front door.  A real dining room.  Stairs!  The neighborhood is wonderful; we’re in walking distance to downtown as well as a beautiful trail for nature walks.  After years of living next to a fire station, we now enjoy quiet evenings (and as the world’s lightest sleeper, I really appreciate this).  I’m excited about having a real Halloween in the fall where costumed children come to my door for treats (I promise not to give them boxed raisins even though I hate keeping candy around).  I have to say, though, my favorite thing about home ownership so far is our large back deck.  I finally have a garden!  I still squeal with excitement every time I see a new veggie:
