It always amazes me how, with a little creativity, the ordinary can be transformed into extraordinary.
In an article I wrote for Family First Magazine in the Fall of 2015, I featured this recipe as a log cake. It's a popular recipe that I have seen served at many parties since. I recently attended a party, hosted by a close friend of mine. Each course was a masterpiece. When I complimented her she said, "wait till you see what I made for dessert-even you will be impressed."
Impressed I was! She had used aCuisipro Ice Cream Scoop and Stack to cut out individual portions of the ice cream log and placed them on plates garnished with dessert sauce. But the best is yet to come. She had personalized each portion with the initial of the new couple's last name by cutting it out of fruit strips. The results were so outstanding that I couldn't resist sharing them with you. Enjoy!
This is a fantastic recipe with 2 delicious parts. I have used the London broil recipe served as a main dish and many a time, the salad without the meat.The combination of everything together makes for an outstanding salad.This recipe works well served in a large salad bowl and also great as a first course.
My guests were arriving and I still had not decided on a hot vegetable to be served with the main. Obviously, I did not have much time on my hands. Upon openening the fridge, I spotted a bag of mini peppers I had just purchased from Costco. I put three peppers on a skewer, sprayed them with Pam, spiced them, then placed them on the grill. Ten minutes later (5 minutes each side) I had a most magnificent vegetable to serve.
I scream, you scream….This has got to be the simplest birthday cake ever! We all know how much everyone loves ice cream cakes, yet we also know how pricey they tend to be. So here’s an idea that is very cost effective, practically effortless, delicious, and most of all, “we’ll all scream” for more! The base of the cake is ice cream sandwiches. You can decorate it as a fun birthday cake using edible spray, piping gel, sprinkles… or as an elegant dessert using caramel topping, nuts, chocolate shavings….
