Black Sesame Ice Cream

This is only maybe my second time using John’s ice cream maker. I made this recipe. It’s tasty, but the texture seems a little grainy/chalky/off to me. I think potentially the neri goma doesn’t mix in as well as I’d like. But it was still a fun thing to make.36014498175_9a302da45f_q.jpg

Blueberry and Blackberry Crumb Bars

A solid dessert from Smitten Kitchen. Stuck to the pan a bit – I was surprised parchment paper wasn’t recommended. I did half blueberries, half blackberries for a new spin because that’s what I had on hand.

Tahini Brownies

This is the first recipe I made from Milk Street, Chris Kimball’s new magazine. They were tasty! I probably didn’t need to use the fancy tahini I have for this but hey.

Pumpkin Bread

Recipe in Progress: Matcha Pie/Bars

So I made this matcha pie recipe. Not bad, but I didn’t love the crust and I found myself with a bunch of extra filling. I decided to make a basic graham cracker crust and use the rest of the filling to make bars. Liked those better than the pie! So next time I attempt this recipe, I’ll make the custard, and pair with a more refined version of my thrown-together graham cracker crust.
