One Perfect Bite: Pear Sorbet

Pear Sorbet

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was an American poet of some renown. I'm sure he never dreamed his words would be used to review a recipe, but one of his poems sums up the dilemma I have with today's recipe. I suspect, wittingly or not, you've committed his verse about the little girl who had a little curl, to memory. I'm going to paraphrase the verse to suit the needs of my review, so I'll continue on and say, that when this pear sorbet is good, it is very…

One Perfect Bite: Frozen Vacherin Torte with Rhubarb Cream and Strawberries

Frozen Vacherin Torte with Rhubarb Cream and Strawberries

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I've been given the nod to share this lovely dessert with you. That does not always happen. A recipe must pass two tests before I post it here. It must, of course, make a dish that's tasty, but, over and above that, it must be doable. Left to my own devices, I've been known to come up recipes that are too different or difficult for others to try. I have folks who help prevent that from happening. This vacherin passed the taste and doability tests with…

One Perfect Bite: Grapefruit Sorbet - Pink Saturday

Grapefruit Sorbet - Pink Saturday

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a light and lovely dessert that's a perfect way to end a heavy summer meal. I started to make this sorbet when ruby red grapefruit juice became available at our warehouse store. There are purists who will insist the ice should be made with fresh grapefruit juice. They are right, but there are times when life gets in the way and shortcuts become necessary. It's also hard to set those shortcuts aside when they are successful. My recipe relies on…

One Perfect Bite: Sour Cherry Gelato - Pink Saturday

Sour Cherry Gelato - Pink Saturday

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...It's next to impossible to have a celebration without cake and ice cream. The blog, How Sweet the Sound, the sponsor of Pink Saturday, is celebrating its second anniversary today and I thought I'd bring ice cream to the party. Actually, I decided to make a sour cherry gelato for the occasion. Gelato is Italy's lower fat version of ice cream. Because it is lower in butterfat, it does not freeze as firmly as ice cream and melts more quickly on the tongue…

One Perfect Bite: Cranberry Chambord Sorbet - Pink Saturday

Cranberry Chambord Sorbet - Pink Saturday

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a lovely palate cleanser to serve at the end of a heavy meal. I try to keep a quart of it in the freezer for those who don't like, or have room for, more traditional holiday desserts. Sorbet is a frozen dessert that's a bit like gelato, but it's softer and contains no dairy products. It's made with sugar and a fruit puree and it's suitable for vegan diets. This lovely recipe is an adaption of one that appeared in Relish Magazine. It can be made…

One Perfect Bite: Frozen Lemon Yogurt - Pink Saturday

Frozen Lemon Yogurt - Pink Saturday

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Frozen yogurt enjoyed a brief period of popularity in the 1970's. It was touted as being a healthier alternative to ice cream, but many thought it was too tangy and its popularity faded. It was reintroduced in the 1980's and captured about 10% of the frozen dairy market. Today it still accounts for about 10% of all ice cream sales. I wish I could tell you that frozen yogurt is better for you than ice cream. That's not quite true. While it contains less…

One Perfect Bite: Light and Luscious Lemon-Scented Ice Milk

Light and Luscious Lemon-Scented Ice Milk

Happy Easter Lemon-Scented Ice Milk From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I hope you all are enjoying this special holiday weekend. We had our Easter dinner last evening and this is one of the desserts I made to accompany the Mediterranean-style meal we served. I think you'll find it to be a light and lovely way to end a special holiday dinner. A well-flavored ice milk is a wonderful creations that will refresh, rather than weigh down the palate. This scented ice is a simple dish to prepare…

One Perfect Bite: Peppermint Ice Cream and Ice Cream Sandwiches

Peppermint Ice Cream and Ice Cream Sandwiches

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Every year, around this time, I make peppermint ice cream to use in a refrigerator cake I serve during the Christmas holidays. I also use it to make ice cream sandwiches that I keep on hand for unexpected guests. This is a really lovely ice cream and buying chocolate wafer cookies makes the ice cream sandwiches really easy to put together. Once the ice cream has firmed enough, I assemble the sandwiches and freeze them on cookie sheets, in a single…

One Perfect Bite: Lemon Buttermilk Ice Cream and Candied Lemon Zest

Lemon Buttermilk Ice Cream and Candied Lemon Zest

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This week's buttermilk extravaganza continues with a figure friendly dessert that will set your tongue tingling from the combined bite of lemon and buttermilk. You may even be able to claim this ice cream is good for you. Here's why. Cultured buttermilk is lower in fat and calories than regular milk because its fat has already been removed to make butter. It's also higher in potassium, vitamin B12 and calcium and it's more easily digestible than whole…

One Perfect Bite: Frozen Pudding Cream Cake with Candy Bar Crunch Topping

Frozen Pudding Cream Cake with Candy Bar Crunch Topping

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is an easy dessert that demands more time than talent from its cook. It is also one of those desserts that people either love or hate. As far as I've been able to determine, the recipe first appeared in Taste of Home Magazine where it was called Pistachio Cream Dessert. How simple is it? Instant pudding is mixed with softened ice cream and then poured into a crumb crust and refrozen. Once it's set, the cake is covered with whipped topping and…

One Perfect Bite: Fresh Mint Ice Cream - Outdoor Wednesday

Fresh Mint Ice Cream - Outdoor Wednesday

This recipe has been featured on Yahoo! Shine From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Mint has been banished from our slopes and is now under house arrest. We had a bumper crop last year that all but strangled anything it its way. Between spearmint and peppermint our hillside had enough of the herb to supply every green grocer in the county. Now potted in containers, it's hard to remember the havoc caused by the unrestrained exuberance. This beautiful shrub-sized plant is the source of the…

One Perfect Bite: (Almost) Cherry Garcia Ice Cream

(Almost) Cherry Garcia Ice Cream

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Had the gods of mythology sampled this Ben and Jerry favorite, there would have been no talk of ambrosia and an ice cream parlor would have, instead, been opened on the top of Mount Olympus. It is remarkably good and it's Bob's ice cream of choice. It's hard to find Cherry Garcia ice cream in many parts of the world, so, each year before we leave, Bob has his fill of it while we are still in DEFCON 1. It is remarkably easy to prepare and I have only one…

One Perfect Bite: Baked Alaska with Rum Raisin Ice Cream

Baked Alaska with Rum Raisin Ice Cream

Baked Alaska From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...The Silver Fox and I will be celebrating a landmark anniversary next weekend. I'll not be cooking for the occasion but in anticipation of the event, he asked me to make a Baked Alaska for him. I was more than happy to oblige because it gave me an excuse to make one of my favorite ice creams, a smooth and rich rum raisin concoction that is made with the world's happiest raisins. You'd be happy, too, if you spent a day immersed in that amount…

One Perfect Bite: Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I've made a slight change to the dessert menu for Super Bowl Sunday. Rather than serve sundaes, I've decided to make ice cream sandwiches using dulce de leche ice cream and chocolate wafer cookies. I think they'll make for easier clean-up and might actually be a better fit for our extremely casual menu. This is, hands down, one of the easiest and best ice creams I've ever made. It uses no sugar or eggs, and its sweetness comes from dulce de leche, a…

One Perfect Bite: Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake

Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This cake is an almost effortless dessert. It is assembled rather than backed, and while this version emphasizes coffee flavors, it lends itself to myriad flavor combinations. The recipe I'm featuring tonight was developed for Family Circle magazine and they dubbed it a tiramisu ice cream cake. Take that with a grain of salt. Save for the use of coffee and ladyfingers, the dessert bears no resemblance to the tiramisu that we've come to know and love…
