So, remember those Balsamic Roasted Strawberries I shared with you last Friday? Delicious, right?!! I told you 10 delicious ways to devour these sweet berries. But, I also held out on you. I didn’t tell you the absolute best, most amazing way to savor these roasted gems. What’ll really knock your socks off is swirling those Balsamic Roasted Strawberries though a batch of Goat Cheese Ice Cream…and of course, adding a few berrylicious spoonfuls as a topping!
I had a really hard time not eating the entire batch of Goat Cheese Ice Cream straight out of the ice cream maker. Like, on a scale of 1 to 10, this hard time was an 11. It took every single ounce of willpower I could muster.
This recipe comes from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home, and swaps cherries for strawberries. I’m absolutelty smitten with this book, and every single one of Jeni’s ice cream recipes. It’s like she had a direct line to my brain and stomach, and created this book just for me. It’s full of fun, creative, insanely delicious flavor combinations that are all right up my alley. Really, there is not one recipe in this book that I’m not interested in. In fact, I’m in the midst of making & eating my way through the entire book (luckily for my waistline, I will not be quitting triathlon any time soon!).
If you have an ice cream maker, you must get a copy of this book!!
In just over a month I’ll be heading to Pennsylvania for the Big Summer Potluck. I’m hesitant to call it a conference because it seems smaller, more intimate and more relaxed. A retreat, perhaps. Anyway, it will be my first blogger event and I’m super excited! I can’t wait to meet to bloggers I’ve been following, and emailing and tweeting with! A little part of me is also kind of nervous. Aside from one or two people, I don’t really know anyone who’s going, and as much as I love meeting new people, it’s also a little scary for me. If you’re also going to the Big Summer Potluck, come say hi!
One more reason I’m super excited about the Big Summer Potluck, guess who’s going to be one of the keynote speakers – Jeni Britton Bauer, the Jeni behind Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams! Jeni, can you please bring a giant truck of your ice cream with you??
