To me, nothing says Summer quite like ice cream. I remember, as a kid, getting ridiculously excited when I heard the unmistakable music of the ice cream truck. It rarely came down our street, so it was always a huge treat when it did. Sure, the same kinds of ice cream were sold at the grocery store (for a fraction of the price), but it tasted better coming from that truck!
Well, I haven't seen the ice cream man in years. I know: It's so sad. But not to worry! I now own an ice cream maker, and that brings me to my Works for Me Wednesday. Today's theme is "favorite Summer recipes," and the first thing that popped into my mind wasn't one recipe, but a book of them: The Perfect Scoop, by David Lebovitz.
If you thought treats from the ice cream truck were good, wait until you try making your own with these recipes! Here are a few of the flavors in the book:
- Chocolate-Peanut Butter
- Butterscotch Pecan
- Toasted Almond & Candied Cherry
- Rum Raisin
- Basil Ice Cream
- Black Pepper Ice Cream
