Moving Day Part Uno

I’m tired, my back hurts and I have a zillion paper/box cuts. You can ask me tomorrow if it’s all worth it. Right now I just wanna sleep.

I’ll be out of the office…

Hello dearest readers,

I’ll be out of the “office” for the next 10 days at a remote location FAR FAR FAR away from work, laundry and my kitchen with limited access to email and internet. (I’m a little stressed out about the limited access to internet part. HA!)

My husband and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary on Monday (Man, time flies when you’re having fun. So cliche but so true!) and decided to take a 2nd honeymoon. I promised him that I would tear myself away from the computer and spend time with him (What was I thinking??) but I will respond to any emails and comments when I return.

Bunday Monday

Click image to see original picture

I look a little creepy (according to Nikki) but I think Opie looks cute esp her little nose, right?

I was gonna wait to post this tomorrow for the inauguration but I had too much fun playing with pictures that I decided it would be fun to post for Bunday Monday as a pre-inaug celebration instead.

Anyone gonna be watching the inauguration broadcast tomorrow? I’ll be working but checking my iphone constantly for podcasts and twitter updates.

If you wanna make your own Obama icon picture here’s the linkage.

Fair warning. Its addicting. LOL

Happy MLK day everyone.

Thursday With Dorie (Rewind)

Thursday with Dorie?

Yeah. I know. I know. Its suppose to be Tuesdays with Dorie but I was swamped with other baking obligations last Tuesday. I couldn’t stop drooling after seeing all the other Dorie-nators’ tortes on my GoogleReader though so I knew I’d have to make time for it as soon as I could. That day was Wednesday.

I’ve been dying to use my cute little 4inch springform pan for a while now. Isn’t everything cuter in mini sizes? So I decided to half the recipe and thats how I wrote the recipe up. You can find the original recipe on Amy from Family, Food and Fun‘s blog.

I would have posted yesterday but of course I didn’t read the full instructions until I was actually making it and smacked myself on the head when I read “freeze for at least 6 hours”. Well crap. So I satiated my dessert bug by eating some of the vanilla bean ice cream while I waited. I guess there are worst situations, no? LOL.

What I learned this week:
Read the whole recipe before making dessert plans.

Chocolate Banded Ice Cream Torte

(Recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s BFMHTY | photos from me!)


7 tbsp unsalted butter, cut in small pieces
4-1/2 oz bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (I used ghiradelli semi-sweet)
1/4 cup sugar
4 large eggs
5 oz frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed
1/2 tbsp chambord
1/2 quart vanilla ice cream (I used dreyers vanilla bean)

[NOTES: I had alot of chocolate mixture and ice cream leftover. I probably could have quartered the original recipe but I figured I’d half to be safe.]


Lightly spray a 4 inch springform pan.

Put butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl [I think metal works the best], set over simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted. Remove from heat and add sugar. Whisk to combine and let cool for 5 minutes. Whisk the eggs, one at a time, into chocolate mixture. Rap the bowl against the counter to release air bubbles.

Pour 1/3 of the chocolate mixture into the springform pan. Freeze for at least 30 minutes to set. Cover remaining chocolate mixture with plastic wrap against the surface and keep on counter.

When first layer of chocolate mixture is set, start making the raspberry ice cream.

Puree raspberry+syrup in a food processor. Add chambord and pulse to incorporate. Spoon the ice cream in the processor and pulse until blended. Do not process too long or ice cream will melt.

Spread 1/2 the ice cream layer on top of the chocolate mixture and freeze for 15 minutes [I froze each layer for 30 minutes]. Reserve remaining ice cream in a bowl and freeze until ready for next ice cream layer. You can use your food processor to soften ice cream if you need to.

After raspberry ice cream layer is set, repeat with chocolate mixture. Freeze for 30 minutes. After chocolate mixture set, scoop raspberry ice cream layer. Freeze for 15 minutes. After raspberry ice cream layer set, pour in chocolate mixture and freeze for 6 hours before serving. [I froze overnight]

Wow. This dessert is worth the wait! The ganache and raspberry ice cream are SO good together. I couldn’t stop eating!
