RASPBERRY SORBET


I have used my ice cream maker I got for mother's day so much lately-you can probably tell... Recently, I made this raspberry sorbet. It was the perfect amount of sweetness and tart. It was the perfect little treat to serve some guests when they came over for dinner.

Raspberry Sorbet 
(recipe source, Cuisinart)

2 cups water
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
pinch of table salt
4 cups frozen raspberries, thawed

(this recipe only works with an ice cream maker)

1. Combine the water and sugar in a medium saucepan on medium low heat. Cook mixture until the sugar is fully dissolved.

2. Add the salt to the raspberry syrup. Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture until smooth, or put in a blender. Strain half of the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Use a spatula or spoon to aid in passing the puree through the strainer. Remove seeds and repeat with the second half. Cover and refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight.

3. Turn on your ice cream maker, pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, about 15-20 minutes. It will have a soft texture, so I kept mine in the freezer in an airtight container for another 2 hours.

4. Top with fresh raspberries and serve.

JULY BIRCHBOX

I felt like July was a bit slim pickings in my Birchbox. I have been using the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream and like it, but it's only been about a week so there is no noticeable difference in my dark circles going away just yet. The LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil is not really my thing. I guess I'm just not that in to purple lip balm even if it's supposed to be just a semi-sheer lip color-still too purple for me. I really like the Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel and think I will purchase the full size. It's a great peel and found it very easy to use. I also liked the Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream. I wasn't too keep on the Gingerade Shower Gel, it didn't seem to lather and I didn't love the smell.

HOMEMADE CHERRY CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM


For mother's day I got an ice cream maker. I was so excited because I love ice cream and now I can make it all the time! I have made a few different kinds, but recently I made this chocolate cherry one per my husband's request. First I made the chocolate ice cream using this recipe (minus the peanut butter-but I did make the chocolate peanut butter recipe once and it was so good!) About five minutes before you take the ice cream out of the ice cream maker, add in the drained, chopped, sweet dark cherries (mine were in a can that you can find near the canned fruit section at the store). Make sure the cherries are completely mixed in. Then serve or freeze like normal. I served with leftover cherries and melted milk chocolate drizzled on top. Yummy yummy!
