My boy Liam is all about bacon. Liam and bacon… bacon chicken, bacon sandwiches, and now, bacon chocolate chip cookie pie.
We had made bacon chocolate chip cookies before, Liam and me, but it wasn’t until recently that our recipe evolved into pie form. We were having another family over for dinner and Liam (true to form) requested bacon cookies for dessert, but I had wanted to serve something a little more formal. After a short discussion, we decided to see if we could do both and thus the bacon chocolate chip cookie pie was born!
Figuring out just the right kind of “yum” for kids can be a daunting task. What may seem as a gourmet and classy touch for adults may come-off as downright treason to a child – “Cherry Ice Cream Float? As in, fruit on my ice cream?! Don’t yuck my yum!”…I already hear my littlest one’s reaction to a fruit topping on his ice cream. I hear ya, Liam.
With this in mind, I carefully crafted a “Fruit-n-Float night”. Today, I’m focusing on a Cherry Float, but you’ll find it’s a cinch to sub-in any type of fruit that will knock-out any potential ‘yucky’ reactions. The cherry on top of the recipe (literally) is a coulis, which is a fancy word for a fruit-based sauce paired with lemon juice, sugar, and water.
It’s marvelously simple, and yet looks so darn impressive once you’ve paired it with your favorite ice cream, a dash of whipped cream, some Pellegrino, and an added coulis topping. Although soda water may *sound* less appealing than your go-to root beer staple, it’s actually a saving grace here. Ice cream, fruit coulis, whipped cream and root beer? The sugar may give you and/or your children the shakes…take my word for it on this one, and enjoy!Continue Reading
Summer in Cali is HOT…
We just moved and I had visions of watching the kids play in the pool, cocktail in hand. HA! What was I thinking? There are boxes and boxes and boxes of stuff. There are pictures to hang, wifi to install, furniture to position. In my humble opinion, the stress of moving is very underrated. But, I am trying my best to keep life normal for the boys amongst the insistent hammering, fumbling for light switches, and the slew of other things. So for tonight, it is a good ole movie night with Harry Potter’s Order of the Phoenix and ice cream sundaes. Hope you love this fresh fruit coulis recipe as much as we do – it definitely makes any ice cream scoop brighter and healthier. Here we go, let’s get down to the business of making fruit coulis.Continue Reading
