Category: I scream for ice cream (I do)

Sometimes I think I adore making ice cream just a tiny bit more than I do eating it. And I love eating ice cream quite a lot.

Inspired by Nestle Temptations Dutch Speculoos Ice Cream

The other day, some folks from Nestle sent me their new Nestle Temptations Flavours of the World Dutch Speculoos ice cream. A mouthful, I know, but the only three words you really have to remember are ‘Nestle’ and ‘Dutch Speculoos’. And yes, it is as good as it sounds. The whole speculoos cookie butter craze …

A sweet and sour surprise to show some sisterly love

I suppose I’ll have to apologise for my extended absence after my birthday post, but this is going to be a long one to make up for that. It’s actually two different recipes rolled into one post, but recipes that complement each other in ways that the first bite will immediately make you understand. Let …

{Christmas Countdown 2013} Better-than-candy-cane ice cream sandwich

It’s officially 13 days before Christmas!!! I kind of feel like Christmas came early this year, but I have been having a lot of fun discovering new things during this year’s holiday baking. I wanted to do some relatively unusual recipes this time around; stuff I haven’t done in the previous years. Being relatively new …

Some much needed zen and ice cream

I think I’m beginning to fall hard for matcha. I went on a holiday to Hong Kong recently and I managed to get a taste of various matcha-flavoured food throughout. With the Matcha Espressos and Matcha Panna Cottas I enjoyed, it’s safe to say that Hong Kong has discovered the magic of this wonderful green …

Rekindling my romance with ice cream sandwiches

It’s always been one of my favourites, this little thing they call the ice cream sandwich. I recall having a lot of them in my childhood, but they seem to have disappeared completely from my life the older I grew. I’m not even sure if it’s because they stopped manufacturing or importing the brand I …

Jeni’s Queen City Cayenne Ice Cream + my failed attempt at a video tutorial

You know what they say– It’s always good to try something new. There were two new things I tried when I made this recipe: First is the genius ice cream technique of Jeni Britton Bauer; and second, I attempted to make a video tutorial! I’ve been thinking about foraying into videos for a while but …

Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month?

Wait, is that national or international? For a food blogger I am comically ignorant about these things. Typically I don’t tend to bandwagon on food holidays, but when it’s for something I really like, I simply can’t let it slide. Ice cream– probably the only sweet dessert I can inhale without a second thought. I …

The only kind of cheesiness I approve of

I don’t think it qualifies as a normal Filipino childhood if you have never eaten any so-called “dirty ice cream”, more fondly called sorbetes, as a kid. This kind of ice cream is sold on the streets in these colourful ice cream carts that are pushed around by foot all over the city by sorbeteros. …
