Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Ice Cream Tart

Tuesday, May 25

Hi. First of all, Lost. I'm not sure what to think. The ending was amazing but upsetting all at the same time. I'm still confused about some things but maybe it wouldn't be Lost if it didn't leave a few loose ends, even in the finale.

World Peace Cookies (revisited)

Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream

Wednesday, May 12

Are you tired of seeing these tiny tea cups in so many of my posts yet!? I hope not. They are perfect vessels for ice cream snaps.

"The red ones are mine."
Please don't let the name fool you. These tart little wedges are every bit as light hearted and satisfying as their bagged-up, store bought cousins.

Look out bikini, Your wearer has discovered a way to make ice cream without an actual ice cream maker. And I thought that this would be one vice I'd never have to worry about falling for.
