Time for Sweets !

Hi Everyone !

So sorry I haven't been posting for a while but I've been so busy at work and baking new cupcakes and so on that I did not have time to really post all my ideas of the last week.

Found this great book on how to make ice cream.. I know it's getting colder but hey everybody loves Ice cream especially me and my kids their favorite flavor Salted Caramel Ice cream:

Check out the book Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones here on Amazon

How to make    Salted Caramel Ice cream:

What do you need:

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt.
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 large eggs


Heat 1 cup sugar in a dry 10-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring with a fork to heat sugar evenly, until it starts to melt, then stop stirring and cook, swirling skillet occasionally so sugar melts evenly, until it is dark amber.
Add 1 1/4 cups cream (mixture will spatter) and cook, stirring, until all of caramel has dissolved. Transfer to a bowl and stir in sea salt and vanilla. Cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, bring milk, remaining cup cream, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar just to a boil in a small heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally.
Lightly whisk eggs in a medium bowl, then add half of hot milk mixture in a slow stream, whisking constantly. Pour back into saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until custard coats back of spoon and registers 170°F on an instant-read thermometer (do not let boil). Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, then stir in cooled caramel.
Chill custard, stirring occasionally, until very cold, 3 to 6 hours. Freeze custard in ice cream maker (it will still be quite soft), then transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to firm up. 

Inspirations, inspirations...

  6. I think I will keep going out for ice cream. Sounds like a lot of work. Hee Hee

    As for the leather pants... simple "recipe" if you ask me...

    Leather pants + a great top (I typically like sweaters) + an amazing pair of heels (or low cut boots) = amazing ensemble!

    I wear mine so many Saturdays during the fall and winter. So versatile. So fabulous. The perfect casual/chic item for any fashionista's closet.

    Get a pair... you will see.

    BTW... thank you for the sweet comment on my blog today. Hope you will stop in again soon?
