A Week of Frozen Treats

It has been so hot these last few days and I have been so busy with family and various projects that not much baking has taken place in our kitchen. However, last week, we spent a whole day making ice cream and sorbet bases to fight this summer heat.

Here is a little sneak peek into what we made. Peach, basil and lemon thyme sorbet with lightly poached raspberries. Delicious and refreshing. Can’t wait to share more!

Also, this is an outtake from a shoot I did this week with a darling little girl. She was such a trooper and she also enjoyed some of the frozen treats we made.

And I hope you have noticed the new summer banner. Thank you Kaytlyn!

    It has been insufferably hot here in Ky and TN. I think it’s a bad summer everywhere though. Ice Cream has been on my menu and in my stomach on a regular basis. The ice cream sounds good. I’ve always thought thyme would work well with citrus flavors, but I could see the peach working as well.

  25. NINA says:

    The icecream looks delicious and so creative in its ingredients!
    And the banner is very fresh and appropiate for summer!

  26. Delicious! I LOVE frozen treats with flowers and herbs. Apricot and chamomile, blueberry and bay leaf, pear and rosemary, lemon and lavender; I can’t get enough.

    Peach with basil and thyme sounds like a most striking combination that I haven’t tried. Yet.

    ayer, noche de San Juan: hoguera, talos con chorizo y sidra, chocolatada y verbena para niños… Como tu me das envidia, yo contraataco, jajaja…

  31. Anh and Stephanie- that little adorable girl is not my daughter. She is a model I was shooting. :)

    Esti- me matas… Ayer mismo le estuve diciendo a ama que San Juan es la epoca del año que mas me gusta. Tengo unos recuerdos preciosos con la fogata, merienda, se acabo la ikastola… Me matas!!! :)

    thank you!

    Can’t wait for the sorbet recipe – it’s been quite cool round here recently, but I haven’t given up the hope for a bit of summer.

  33. Wow, this icy treat is really elegant and summery, calming down my heart :)

  34. cutlex says:

    Wow. You just spoke a language alien to me.

    It’s the cold season here in the Philippines. There’s the occasional Sun but soon we’ll be anticipating heavier rains… and hopefully lesser floods.

  41. Thanks everyone! I hope I can get to write the full post soon. I have a sick little boy at home who needs my attention… But I will share the recipe soon. Thank you!

  42. Sally says:

    Pleeeeeeeeease post the recipe!!!!

  43. Paola says:

    Ohh wow! How is it possible that the sorbet doesn’t melt in the syrup during the shoot?? How can you achieve this perfect shaped scoops? I’ve never photographed ice cream and I really need advices from you, if you don’t want to share I’ll understand you.

  44. Paola- the syrup is cold so the sorbet should not melt. I used an ice cream scoop and dipped it in hot water so the sorbet comes out nicely. Also, have your dishes in the freezer too, that helps a lot. Hope that helped!

    Thank you!
