Eat your heart out
This year for our family reunion we're doing something new... we're having a home made ice cream contest. Since ice cream is my all time favorite dessert, I HAVE to get in on this contest. So, I searched the internet for a recipe that was sure to win. And I found this. Chocolate Gelato. And I made it (with the help of my sister, Sarah). And it's delicious. It brought back memories of Florence and Rome and eating nothing but Gelato for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for three days straight. As my sister Sarah would tell you, the recipe's a little involved, but it's well worth it. The recipe also calls for bitter-sweet chocolate. And it's very bitter-sweet. I'd like to try perhaps adding a little more sugar and using semi-sweet. And maybe swirling in some nuts and caramel. Anyhow, tell me your favorite ice cream recipe or flavor. I'm on an ice-cream kick and am looking for some great recipes to try out.
