It’s been really hot here and all I want to eat are frozen things. One particularly hot day, I was craving sorbet but didn’t want to go out to get some, so I made some desperation sorbet out of fresh peaches. And it was good! Much better than other things I’ve made out of desperation, like that spaghetti sandwich I made with leftover garlic bread, spaghetti, and corn when I was in junior high.
Anyway! Here’s what I ate this week:
No-Churn Peach Sorbet // I made this by cutting two peaches into chunks, freezing them, and then pureeing them with 1/4 cup of almond milk and a tablespoon of honey. The texture is a little bit softer (as you can see), but the taste is exactly like peach sorbet.
Peach Sorbet Ice Cream Sandwiches // So then, because I can never leave well enough alone, I decided to use almond thin cookies to make ice cream sandwiches with the sorbet. The sorbet was good, but these were even better. If you’re looking for a relatively guilt-free summer treat, make these! Make them now!
Summer Squash and Ricotta Galette // Perfect in every way. If I manage to get some more squash from the garden, I’ll be making this again. And the crust was totally doable, even for me–using olive oil is much easier to manage than butter.
Pineapple Jalapeno Granita // Sweet, refreshing, and just a little bit spicy. This is one of my favorite summer desserts.
Grilled Eggplant and Tofu Steaks with Sticky Hoisin Glaze // I would totally eat this sauce with a spoon.
