One of the reasons why I love traveling
because it gives me inspiration to try new things and flavors.
Recipes that seem outrageous are the ones I like to try
without further ado
I give you
basil ice cream paired with a blackberry crisp.
Yes, you heard it
BASIL ICE CREAM!!
The ice cream bug has hit the blogosphere
it seems like more and more people are making
their own ice cream.
Cheers to that!
I wanted to wait until I found the perfect ice cream recipe
before jumping on the band wagon
luckily for me
I discovered basil ice cream.
While in Portland
Marc surprised me with a dinner at Wildwood
for my birthday
I was more excited about dessert rather than dinner.
I ordered the blackberry cobbler and basil ice cream.
The blackberry and basil flavors danced together!!
The pairing was all together
immediately after getting back from our trip
I started searching the internet for Basil Ice Cream Recipes
(there were actually quite a few).
The one I settled on can be found here.
The recipe was straightforward and the ice cream came out PERFECTLY!!!
to go with my basil ice cream
I made a blackberry crisp.
if you have been getting ripped off at restaurants by paying too much for crisps
don't worry CRISPS are incredibly easy to make and SO TASTY!!
Make your own and you will never order one again
ok maybe not never
you will understand what I mean.
A secret to my topping is instead of using plain oats I use honey granola!!
(a secret from me to you)
I highly suggest pairing your basil ice cream with either a blackberry crisp or cobbler
you will love it!!
What have you eaten at a restaurant that you simply loved and had to recreate??
