Blueberry Limoncello Sorbet

12 Aug 2013

blueberry limoncello sorbet

I live in the Caribbean so it’s pretty much hot all the time. Maybe it’s because of that but I love frozen desserts (I’m addicted to ice cream sshhhhh). I was raiding the freezer and found a bag of frozen blueberries and decided to try making a blueberry sorbet. Half the sorbet ended up plain and the other half was full of Limoncello goodness!

Sorbets are yummy but when making without an ice cream maker, they take forever to set up properly. Okay I admit, I’m also a bit impatient.

The sorbet with Limoncello came out a bit soft but that’s because of the amount that went into it. If you want a more frozen/hard sorbet, simply reduce the Limoncello to about 1/4 cup.

Blueberry Limoncello Sorbet

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup Limoncello

Purée the blueberries in a food processor. Empty into a sauce pan and add sugar. Place on stove on low heat and stir until sugar melts. Remove from heat and let cool.

Add the lemon juice and Limoncello stirring to blend.

Empty the liquid into a metal bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the freezer and leave for about 4 hours. The outside will be frozen and the center still slightly slushy.

Take out from the freezer and using a hand mixer, beat on low speed until all the frozen bits are broken down and smooth. Be sure not to keep it out too long or it would melt.

Put it back in the freezer and leave overnight.

Wake up and enjoy your sorbet!

A little story about my Mom

12 May 2013

Mother's Day cupcakes, 2013

Mother’s Day cupcakes, 2013

I want to share a very personal little story today, something I still remember from my childhood.

When I was growing up, my family didn’t have a lot. Things many other children could take for granted I just never had. As a child you don’t always realise these things, but I can look back now and see just how hard my mom worked, and how much she sacrificed just so I would not have to go without.

But you know, even with all the hard work and long hours, she still always had time for me. I am an only child and my mom was my best friend growing up. She still is.

I remember we used to bake together. (Cupcake Wench-in-training). And she would make up all sorts of names for the cakes. I’ll never forget when she named one after me. I was the proudest little girl in the world. I told everyone I could that my mommy made a cake named Rehana’s cake.

Can you imagine the excitement of a five year old little girl who’s had something named after her!

You’re probably wondering what flavour Rehana’s cake was too.

It was sponge cake. :)

See, that’s what a mom does. That’s what my mom did, and still does, every day. She makes her daughter feel like the most important, most special kid in the whole world. Even when she doesn’t have very much to do it with.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you!

Do you have a treasured childhood memory of your mom? Share it in the comments and wish your Mom a very happy Mother’s Day.

Happy Birthday Mummy!

20 Feb 2013

February 19th is my mom’s birthday. I love my mummy! According to her, I’m still her baby. Makes me happy I’m an only child!

Her last 2 birthdays, I was so busy and she got boring cakes (sowie mummy). This year, in early January, she “placed an order”! Yes I’m ashamed. LOL! Her request? A cake with a rose. She left the design totally up to me as long as there was a rose.

The only thing though was that all these years decorating cakes, I’ve never gotten around to making a rose! I did it though. She’s my mummy after all :D. It doesn’t look that great but for a first attempt, I think it passed.

Oh and I just LOVE this cake! Love the fondant frills and the teal ombre. Wish someone would have given me one for my birthday!

Did I mention that I made her cake while sick with the flu? I love my mummy. Happy birthday mom!
