She is 17, and she's baking! You should visit her blog here. And I have tried her Favourite Basil Ice Cream.

I thought, hell basil in ice cream. My mind hasn't quite linked the flavour of herbs in sweet desserts. So, curiosity takes the toll. And there I was, whipping up basil ice cream. Once milk is infused, I quite like it. There is refreshing tone in it. Okay. Freeze it.

And I like it even more. Love it! Next summer, I'm going to make this with strawberry compote. Right now, it is impossible to get fresh strawberries. Way pass the season. Thank you, Elissa. You are superb!

I like it too, in Italy basil and lemon ice cream was very popular a few years ago, alongside with pineapple and mint.

Thank you for sharing the link, I'll check her blog now.

Any original ice-cream wins the vote in my opinion. I just made a parsnip one!

I have a very good book. The title: "Ice cream desserts. " There are many recipes in it. I've tried a lot.

Summer time has ended and the winter season is approaching. There's no better way to relax than to eat a delicious dessert like this ice cream.

It isn't my favorite flavor among all ice cream but it's worth a try! Country clubs on long island have a way to include these desserts for special orders and events.
