Summer Fun With Booze

This  is what happens when I'm a single girl for a week:

Ice Cream Maker


Get it here!
I am not a huge ice cream fan, but I love sorbet.  Slushed has so many yummy recipes, I just couldn't resist it.  Sorbets, gelatos, frozen pops, and ice cream--it's all covered in this book.  My first effort is a basil blueberry sorbet.  I will be finishing it today so I can surprise Bud with it tonight.  Next up:  Bananas Foster ice cream.  Looks pretty simple to make and I am always ready to dig into this sweet treat.  As a matter of fact, I can become easily obsessed with Bananas Foster and will make it late at night when I'm craving that banana caramel flavor.  Not good for the waistline, but the taste buds sing out in happiness.  

What's your food find of the summer?  What are you craving?  Besides a good sorbet, I am eating kalamata olives like a crazy person, and I've discovered the joy of barley salads.  Oh--and hummus.  I love hummus, and now I must always have a container in the fridge.  Maybe sometime before summer's over I'll actually make my own.  I can't get enough of it!

  1. I'm totally digging coconut milk-berry smoothies! Not that I ever get to eat one all on my own :-P Are all the recipes booze laden or can they be made sans alcohol?

    1. I did make a yummy blueberry bass sorbet that only had a splash of vodka in it. But, pretty much everything in the book has booze in it. Usually only about 1/4 c or so.

  2. I totally love hummus too, if you find the recipe, please post it so I can try it too. I love Italian ice too, which is kinda like a sorbet. I guess I don't have a food of the summer, I'll eat pretty much anything.
