{RECIPE} Tasty and Refreshing Granita for Summer

by Jillian Leslie on

It's been hot hot hot here in Palo Alto, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that would be cool and delicious. That's why I excitedly created these strawberry and orange granitas.

For those of you who don't know, granita is an Italian dessert that's a cross between a snow cone and sorbet. It's sweet and icy, simple to make, and the key to getting the texture just right is to mix it every twenty minutes with a whisk while it's freezing in the freezer. Plus, I added a little champagne to each flavor to give them both a nice zing.

{TRENDS} Ice Cream Desserts that Aren't Ice Cream!

by Jillian Leslie on

With summer approaching, I can't help but think of ice cream, so I was planning to write a post about the incredible ice cream socials on our site. But then I noticed how many treats people make that look like ice cream, but aren't actually ice cream.

I love anything clever and fun, especially when it comes to dessert, so here are my favorite "ice cream" desserts pulled from different parties on our site. (Click on the photo to see the party it's from.)
