It is time again for Secret Recipe Club reveal day! Woo-hoo! What is the Secret Recipe Club? It’s a lot like Secret Santa, but with recipes. Each month you are assigned a blog. After selecting a recipe from that bloggers repertoire, you make and post it on reveal day. It is a great way to find fun recipes and blogs. I like how it gets me to actually sit down and go through another person’s blog. Blogs are a lot of work and take time to put together. Instead of skimming through just the new stuff (as is usually easier when we see a new blog) it is fun to really sit down and go through what else the blog has to offer. Fun stuff!
My assigned blog this month was Corina at Searching for Spice. Corina’s blog is a record of some of the dishes she is making and as a push to try new things. It is lovely! So many delicious things I need to go back and try, such as Avocado, Yogurt and Coriander Dip, Watercress Risotto, or Afghan Potato Salad and Beef Kebabs. Yum! But the recipe haunting my dreams was Cardamom and Pistachio Ice Cream. I changed it up by making it dairy free (because that is how we roll) and changing it from a pistachio ice cream to one with candied pistachios, because… Well, because I wanted to! Mmmmm….
Caramel ribbons studded with toasted pistachio in cardamom ice cream. The stuff of dreams, I tell ya. Um, and my kids may have caught me licking the ice cream paddle after it was made. And I wouldn’t share until the ice cream had chilled more. It is that good. Thank you, Corina! We will be making this again with the pistachios in the ice cream, because this ice cream is magical. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
