Lime-Lemon Sorbet

I know. It’s seems I’ve been a little absent these days. Can I excuse myself with the summertime slow down period? After all, isn’t August the prime time for vacation? It used to be, at least in Portugal where many companies and the Parliament closed for the month and will return in September together with […]

Mangoland Series: Mango Ice-cream Pie

“Alright”, he said. “I can have a piece.” He was quite a bit distracted by whatever he was doing on his phone, while relaxing on the big brown couch in the office room, so he didn’t glance the plate I was offering until it was right in front of his eyes. I noticed his pupils […]

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice-cream

Since my ice-cream post, I’ve been trying different flavors with the same base. I already did tangerine, strawberry and I’m delighted with all the possibilities. The good thing about it is that it can be made in any freezer covered container, there’s no need for special ice-creams makers, though I’m considering to get this Ice […]

Stracciatella and Lemon Ice-cream

I love lemons. At our old house, we had a Meyer lemon tree and those were the best lemons I have ever tasted. They were big, round, juicy lemons and I used to pick one each morning from the back yard for my breakfast. They almost looked like yellow oranges, I wish we could have […]

Cookies Ice-cream Cake

Or Cookies’n’Cream Ice Cream Cake. Or Maria Cookies Cake. Or Cookies’n’Cream Frozen Cake. Or just Cookies Cake. Whatever you name it’s always related to the original “Bolo de Bolacha”, which is obviously another Portuguese recipe I can’t get enough with.
