Mascarpone Mousse

It was with trepidation I made this weeks baking assignment for Tuesdays with Dorie. My husband told me he really doesn’t like mascarpone. My fears were unfounded as this was a hit with the whole family. It was light, airy and not too sweet. My husband picked strawberries as the fruit accompaniment which went together…

Corn Pudding

I pulled out my copy of My Kitchen Year by Ruth Reichl and turned to the summer section. I was determined to complete more recipes from this book. Corn was on sale at my local Sprouts Market 6 ears for $1 so I decided to make this corn pudding recipe since it called for 6…

Brioche Ice Cream Sandwiches

When I voted for this one, I fully had intended to make all the components but of course that did not happen. I used store bought ice cream and brioche bread but I did make the caramel sauce! These were a crowd pleaser. My son said he couldn’t wait to eat another one. I thought…
