Caramel Mousse with Caramel Sauce and Toasted Hazelnuts

 

When I made this incredible caramel mousse recipe previously in order to layer it in a trifle, it was so, so good that I knew I wanted to use it in a recipe all on its own.  This mousse has such a luscious, rich taste to it that you just need a little of it to feel as though you've eaten a lot of dessert. Because of that, you can serve small portions of it piped into small wine glasses or served in these great little tasting spoons that my good friend, Yvonne, gave me. This dessert is perfect for those.

Stuffed Mini Peppers

Have you seen these little mini peppers that the grocery stores are stocking now? Well, I've become a big fan of these and I always have a bag in the fridge. They make the nicest little appetizers. I even like them better than the large bell peppers for stir fries.  But one of the best things to do with them is to cut them in half, stuff them and bake or grill them.

Homemade Ice Cream - an Update


ceramics from Fifty One and a Half

 

I've been posting about the joys of making homemade ice cream for a long time now but I have modified my recipe for the better and I wanted to share it with you.  Making homemade ice cream is super easy and delicious. Not only do you know exactly what is in your ice cream, but you can make any combination of flavors that you want.  

In my old recipe, I used a simple mixture of cream, half and half, sugar and whatever flavorings I wanted (I did not want to make ice cream with eggs). Now this worked just fine and was absolutely lucious and delicious. The problem was keeping the leftover ice cream in the freezer - it would form ice crystals and the ice cream wasn't so creamy anymore.  This problem is solved by simply adding a cornstarch slurry and a little light corn syrup into the mixture, which prevents this crystallization.
