As I mentioned on last week's Sunday Slow Bakers posting, we have now completed our official cooking from Dolce Italiano. I'm sure everyone else feels the way that I do, that although our official cooking from the book is over, it sure won't be the last I cook from it. There are many more recipes I am anxious to try.
As we debated what next book to cook from, Jerry suggested The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz. So our transition began from the Sunday Slow Bakers to the Sunday Slow Scoopers. We had a name, and Sandi came up with our logo.
I had looked at this book before and thought it had some wonderful-sounding recipes, but although I like ice cream, it's not something that I make very often. But I had so much fun cooking with the Sunday Slow Bakers that I decided that I would participate in the Sunday Slow Scoopers. So I ordered the book from Amazon.com, and upon arrival, the anticipation began. I could tell that I was in for some tasty frozen treats.
I just returned from vacation, and haven't been to the store yet for the ingredients for this weeks choice. The choice was from Jerry, and the selection is Butterscotch Pecan Ice Cream. So I will be late with my first week's ice cream. I plan on going to the store and mixing up the ice cream today, but as it has to completely chill before churning, it will most likely be tomorrow before I post the results. But in the meantime, you can go to any of the participant's links on the side of my blog and see the results their results. Jerry made the Blondies recipe that was also in the same cookbook to accompany his ice cream, topped with a chocolate sauce. It looks like quite a delicious combination.
I'm ready for the churning to begin....
