Homemade Coffee Ice Cream – A Delicious and Healthy Alternative to the Store

Homemade Coffee Ice Cream – A Delicious and Healthy Alternative to the Store

Over ten years ago I tried to make homemade ice cream. I forgot the name of the ice cream maker, but it was terrible.

Since then I’ve been buying all my own ice cream, but recently I had a chance to play with the Cuisinart ICE-21 Ice…Continue Reading

The Coffee Martini

The Coffee Martini

Martinis used to be a stiff drink. After all, it’s mostly hard liquor. Then James Bond came along and made the martini hip, and sometime in the 80’s or 90’s, they started adding “tini” to the end of everything, and the modern foo-foo martini was born.

Espresso Pumpkin Pie

Espresso Pumpkin Pie

I always get a craving for pumpkin pie as soon as the first leaves start turning colors or the first crisp autumn breeze turns my cheeks red. This year, I took my old pumpkin pie recipe and expanded upon it and improved it by adding espresso. It’s a simple recipe using canned pumpkin. The purist bakers among the crowd can modify a from scratch pumpkin pie recipe accordingly, if they have the patience to fool around with whole pumpkins, but this recipe is for the majority of people who want …Continue Reading

Cinnamon Cold Brew Coffee

Cinnamon Cold Brew Coffee

Cold brew coffees are known for being wonderfully smooth and flavorful. They’are also typically brewed in a concentrated form, so that you can easily use them as a base for flavored iced coffee drinks without ending up with something watery.
