    When I go to the Super Market, I really like to go by myself and look around.  Sometimes you’ll find something that you’ve never seen before.

    Remember having Cream-sicles? 

    Those yummy Vanilla and Orange Ice Cream bars on a stick? 

    This is the same thing, but better…

    ‘Cause you can have as much as you like in your bowl!

    I had homemade mango-lime sorbet.

    I make a nice orange/cream ice cream, too.

    Oh my gosh, petals, how did you know I LOVE trifle?

    Did you use all fresh fruits?

    I bought individual sized trifle dishes a few weeks ago and haven't used them yet. 

    I like to use the dark liquors, like Kalua or a spiced Rum...You've inspired me!

    Yes Kgirl,

    It was all fresh and everything from scratch. I like to put this dessert in the freezer for an hour or so and then take it out , let it sit, and then serve. It's the type of dessert on a summer day that tastes great when served very cold.

    In fact it is wonderful dessert that can be served all year round.

    In the fall it can be switched to an apple and cinnamon with toasted almond slivers / pumpkin pecan and maple crunch topping.


    It truly is a versatile dessert.

    Petals.

    Buba,

    Thanks for sharing your lovely photos.

    I have made fresh blueberry Italian sorbette this morning for dessert for after our main meal lunch today on Tuesday. 

    I had learnt to prepare it at a course I was taking at the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute of the Madrid Capital earlier this year in Sorbet Making. *** Here are the results;


    *** Kaneo: Good post and lovely contributions.

    Ciao,

    Margaux.

    Joey-girl that sounds ONO~licious!! (oops, ono in hawaiian means delicious)

    Loves me my dream-sicles!!

    Michael loves that Mint-chocolate Bailey’s Irish cream over rocks,

    I was thinking of an adult-appropriate milk shake using that. 

    Maybe with Raspberry Sherbet?

    Last night was a Thomas Keller dinner at the Venetian, which I was so excited to get tickets for.  Dessert was Tarte Tatin with Creme Fraiche Ice Cream.

    When I first met my adorable Husband, he took me

    Back East to meet his family.  We went to “the shore”.

    (Wait a minute, I’m from Hawaii, why do I want to go to the beach?)

    He was so excited for me try all of these foods that

    he had as a young person and I thought that some the

    things that he was describing to me were, well, not so great.

    Boy, was I wrong.

    A waffle with Ice Cream, how exciting is that?

    I can’t always find the right Ice Cream for this.  

    It needs to be the old style, as DH calls it brick Neapolitan Ice Cream and nice waffles with powdered sugar dusting.

    I nailed it tonight!
