Book Giveaway (2 Copies!): Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones: 90 Recipes for Making Your Own Ice Cream and Frozen Treats from Bi-Rite Creamery

If you read my blog long enough, you know I love desserts but nothing gets more excited than ice cream. (I do love me some beautiful entremets but that’s a very different and fussy dessert.) Anyway, if you follow my tweets and stumbled one of my updates over a month ago, I’ve mentioned I’m going to San Francisco in June.

Delicious Salumi from Creminelli & Giveaway!

My shipment of Creminelli Yesterday, I’ve received my shipment of Creminelli Fine Meats‘ sublime salumi (Tartufo, Casalingo, Cotechino, Piccante, and Barolo). It’s a tradition of sorts to order a box (as I have last year). As their salumi is fantastic and one of the few American companies (they are still small production and family owned) that make pretty damn good cured meats. I’m saving the Cotechino for New Year’s Eve, as it’s traditionally served at that time. What makes me a fan of their delicious salumi are their rules of using making the best tasting salumi as possible by using..
