If God created ice cream to make life more tolerable, then he surely sent Koralee Teichroeb as ice cream's angelic ambassador to lead us all in the direction of what is good, beautiful, and so sweet about living. In blog star fashion, the author of the popular blog Blue Bird Notes enchants with her fully illustrated, colorful book Everything Goes With Ice Cream.
A feast for the senses -- Koralee's book is rife with decadent, richly delicious looking images, tantalizing recipes, and a plethora of fun craft ideas inspired by desserts, and gives new meaning to the hip word, "cool." I was totally drawn to its seasonal approach with ideas for every major holiday, but also delighted with its use of seasonal ingredients and tasty toppings. I've carried the book everywhere with me the last two weeks, poring over the pages as I engage in swirled soft serve, sea salted caramel gelato, and fruited high test ice creams with whole strawberries and mix or sprinkles, jimmies and crunch coat.
I am looking forward to the summer season when I will make the Ice Cream Roll Up Cake on page 40, the Cream Cookie Pie on page 78, and amaze my dinner guests with S'more Bar Milkshakes on page 136. But that is not all: you won't just be mesmerized by the sundaes, sandwiches and pops... but you will want to craft every little project along the way and scour your local flea market for vintage finds.
Pick up this book for a brilliant summer house gift, hostess gift, or for those many birthday celebrations. I intend on finding a set of vintage sundae cups, parfait spoons and Koralee's book for every wedding I attend this year. Check it out and be COOL!
