Bailey’s Irish Cream Ice Cream (#42)

52 Scoops

I am partied out.  The last few weeks have been a flurry of Christmas lunches, dinners, potlucks, and parties.  I have indulged — no, overindulged — in sweets and treats.  I don’t think I need to see a chocolate or a cookie until April.  Heck, I don’t think I even have room for ice cream.

But I’m just about in the final stretch.  After this week, I only have 10 more posts to go before I have a compilation of 52 ice cream recipes — one for every week of the year.  There’s no stopping now!

I’m keeping things super simple this week; my post-holiday brain can’t handle anything beyond mixing A with B.

Let A = Vanilla ice cream base
Let B = Leftover Bailey’s Irish Cream from last weekend’s party
A + B = Bailey’s Irish Cream Ice Cream

I made this honey pistachio ice cream for our Christmas Eve dinner and topped it with a little lemon olive oil and Maldon salt. It was rich, creamy, and delicious with a hint of saltiness. The olive oil brought a bright citrus finish to every bite. Hurry and make it before the new year begins and we all start being healthy again!


2 cups organic whole milk
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened (3 tablespoons)
1 1/4 cups organic heavy cream

1/2 cup toasted pistachios, finely ground plus more chopped for topping
1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract

Fill a large bowl with ice water. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the milk with the cornstarch. In another large…

Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co.

Brunch with Bear

Last March, I discovered what was then the amazing Soft Serve Fruit Co. Since then, the delicious store has “added a name to its name,” becoming Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. Soft Serve Fruit is exactly what the name implies: fruit, ice and cane sugar. No dairy at all! In fact, according to their website, Soft Serve Fruit is free of the eight major allergens. Think sorbet but in soft-serve form!

Located in my favorite neighborhood, Union Square, Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. is always a treat, even when it’s starting to get chilly outside. It’s the perfect snack to refresh you from brunch in Chelsea or shopping in Union Square! Chloe’s is tucked away on 17th Street between Broadway and 5th Avenue, and it’s a short walk from the 14th Street-Union Square stop on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, F, M, N, Q, or R lines…

Peppermint Chocolate Ice Cream Cake Roll

A Passion for Chocolate



These cake rolls are really versatile, as well as surprisingly easy and quick to put together. I’m going to use this recipe to show you the basic method, then you can go to town and customize it however you like.  The one above is packed with peppermint ice cream,  and I served with a hot fudge sauce. You can adjust the proportion of cake to filling, mine is slightly overstuffed but I was going for something cold and refreshing.

I have filled these with chestnut ganache for yule logs, filled them with ice cream, jam, mousse, you name it! As long it will firm up enough to slice it’s fair game.

The cake roll recipe is the basic sponge sheet from Paula Pecks’ The Art of Fine Baking. This little book is very unassuming from the outside, but it is a treasure and worth much more than many cookbooks…

Champagne Ice Cream

Kitchen Adventures with Lucy


I love champagne, there I’ve said it.

Maybe it’s clichéd, lady in her mid 30’s loving champagne, but it’s quite hard to find a bad champagne. Don’t get me wrong there are some average ones out there, but hardly any I’d class as bad. Plus it’s so celebratory drinking it. Perfect for so many occasions, catching up with friends, tick, enjoying pre dinner drinks, tick, Christmas day drinks, tick.

Last year before Christmas I became obsessed with the idea of making champagne ice cream. I had it in my head would go well with Christmas pudding. So after a fair few attempts (some ending in scrambled eggs) I made a good batch, taste tested it on my work colleagues, then made some for Christmas day, where I served it up with the Christmas pudding and……..

It went amazingly well with Christmas pudding.

There’s just one thing about the champagne ice…
