i'm back with more French sugar!

if you don't know me by now...
sure, i'm singing it!
{circa 1972 ~ Jersey ~ Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes}
i am always in pursuit of a
little French sugar!...

on this rainy PacNWest morning,
i virtually had my coffee and quiche with
The French Basketeer!

her post today, about her "Father's Wishes",
is filled with sugar and sweetness for all of us!

the image above is her gift!
blackberry and rose ice cream... it's topped
with her Dad's special jam.
{the recipe ~ she shares}

she inspired me to share
a recipe for rose ice cream...(a clipping
from one of my ancient Victoria Magazines!)

Rose Ice Cream


  • 4 cups light cream
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons rose extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash pink food coloring


Whisk together the light cream, heavy cream, milk, sugar, rose water, salt, and pink food coloring in a bowl. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve immediately for soft-serve style or transfer to a container and store in the freezer for a few hours for a firmer ice cream. 

when i wish to elevate my day...
i LOVE to visit the French Basketeer!

[with love]
