Recipe: Pistachio Ice Cream Sandwiches

by gigi on April 13, 2009

One of my oft-used wedding presents is an ice cream maker from Victoria. She knew how crazy I was about frozen desserts in general and figured I would make good use of an ice cream maker. She was right and ever since I unpacked my ice cream maker, I’ve been busily trying out new flavours […]


Post-Valentine’s Day Debrief

by gigi on February 22, 2009

It’s been a bit over a week since Valentine’s Day and I thought I should share with you what Jenkins and I did that day before it started to become untimely. Jenkins and I are usually pretty low-key for V-day and we try not to buy too much into the commercialism of it all. The […]
