In every country you'll find people eating ice cream on street corners, in markets, and in fancy restaurants. But the number of people who make it at home is much smaller. The reason? Making this sweet treat yourself is kind of a pain. Ice cream machines can be expensive, bulky and hard to store, or cheap and inefficient. But what if you could make your own ice cream at home without all of the fuss, for a fraction of the cost of buying it, and without any special equipment? No-Churn Ice Cream is a mouthwatering collection of shortcuts and classic culinary techniques that help you achieve delicious, artisanal results.
All you need to make your quick and easy no-churn ice cream are the following simple tools:
- A freezer
- A whisk or electric mixer
- A can opener
- A bowl and a freezeable container, such as a loaf pan
- A sweet tooth!
Inside you'll find recipes for all the basic flavors, plus more complex and exciting flavors such as Pineapple-Peppercorn and Sweet Potato Marshmallow Swirl. Treat yourself with a decadent Stracciatella gelato or Bananas Foster sorbet, or cool off with some Lavender-Almond sherbet. Your flavor variations are limited only by your imagination. Why not add some bacon to that batch of chocolate-caramel ice cream? Leslie Bilderback, author of Mug Cakes, is here to show you how.
Nearly everyone loves a heaping bowl of delicious pasta—but nearly everyone, too, feels at least a twinge of guilt about eating one. Whether you're eating paleo, low carb, gluten free, or just trying to curb those excess empty calories, carbohydrate-packed pasta can't be high on your healthy-eating list.
But what if you could eat that heaping bowl without experiencing the guilt? With a spiralizer, you can! A spiralizer is an inexpensive, simple-to-use tool that produces spiral cuts, shoestrings, and fruit and vegetable "noodles" for adding new texture to pasta dishes, stir-fries, soups, and salads. Craving a big plate of spaghetti but don't want to spend an hour at the gym? In a matter of minutes you can spiralize super-thin zucchini "zoodles" ready to cover with your favorite pasta sauce. And it doesn't begin and end with zucchini, either: a spiralizer can make quick work out of carrots, sweet potatoes, beets—even apples! The Spiralized Kitchen is perfect for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
Step-by-step instructions, practical techniques, and mouthwatering photographs accompany a variety of fun, simple recipes using fresh ingredients from Leslie Bilderback, the author of Mug Cakes. With this book you have what you need to spiralize every meal—and no one but the chef has to know it isn't real pasta!
