Ice cream cravers, this one is for you. Maybe you’ve been thinking about creating your own creaminess at home? The perfect “cookbook” (though their’s not much “cooking” per se) for mouthwatering creamy, dreamy, cold, ice cream is Sweet Dreams and Sugar Cones. From the famed San Francisco creamery Bi-Rite, whose lines are known to snake down blocks and around corners. Why wait in line? Why not create your own at home? I’m for reals.
The chapters are broken down by base flavors – Vanilla, Caramel, Chocolate, Coffee and Tea, Nuts, Berries, Citrus, Herbs & Spices, and Tropical Fruits. Which one is making you crave a bowl right now? For me it’s the Caramel. Oohh, Brown Sugar Ice Cream with a Ginger-Caramel Swirl. Just ooooh.
The tips and tricks, and fun stories too, are worth having this book around. Delicious tips like, have extra egg whites? Whip up some meringue or marshmallows. Never again will you throw those out. And never again will I go hungry for ice cream.
