'101 Gourmet Ice Cream Creations' Blog Tour and Review

101 Gourmet Ice Cream Creations

Book Blurb:

Bestselling author and dessert genius, Wendy Paul is back with a collection of tasty flavors and unique ice cream treats from fun-loving triple berry to exotic mango lime to scrumptious fried ice cream. Perfect for experts and novices alike, these mouthwatering creations are guaranteed to sweeten up any party and make all your friends and family scream for ice cream!
**My thoughts**

A word of advice: do NOT read this book when you are hungry! I actually cracked it open before breakfast the other morning. I hadn't even gotten my morning cup of coffee, yet. I was completely drooling as I flipped through the pages, taking note of those that I need to try sooner rather than later. Trying to decide on which one to start with is almost impossible. There are so many delectable choices!

One thing I love about this book is that you have choices for every season of the year. For example, right now in the middle of summer is the perfect time to try the Triple Berry. Winter is a good time to try the Egg Nog. Harvest Apple options or the pumpkin milkshake is perfect for fall. As Wendy notes, however, you can easily make these year-round. For example, she recommends using frozen berries when they are out of season, to make that Triple Berry ice cream. Ice cream recipes work better when the additions are already cold or frozen, anyway. 

In addition to the ice cream creations, Wendy also provides recipes for toppings, milkshakes and more, to satisfy the tastes and desires of anybody who enjoys ice cream. The photographs are also quite inspirational and drool-worthy. It's a valuable collection to anyone's cookbook library. I need a hard copy now!

I received a complimentary review copy in exchange for my honest review of this book.

Meet the author:

I’m a wife and mother residing in the great state of Utah (I have never been skiing…) who decided to write a cupcake cookbook, 101 Gourmet Cupcakes in 10 Minutes.  I have always loved to bake and cook, spending countless hours in the kitchen. It is cute, fun, and easy, even for the most novice baker. Your family and friends will be amazed with these delicious creations that you can bake for any occasion.
My second book, 101 Gourmet Cookies for Everyone is a wonderful collection of my best cookies for EVERYONE! From Gluten-free to low-fat, low-sugar recipes, vegan recipes….. and traditional, this book has it all! I am so proud of these books and I am so grateful for this fantastic opportunity to share my most treasured recipes with you!
101 Gourmet Cake Bites is my 3rd book- it’s full of great recipes- of cake bites and cake pops! I call them bite size pieces of heaven! Not only can your cake bites and cake pops look cute and adorable, they can now taste great.
and…. the 4th book of the 101 Gourmet Series will be out in August of 2012. What goes better with cupcakes, cookies and cake bites? You got it! Ice cream. Look for ice cream secrets, new recipes and teasers from now until August 2012- when 101 Gourmet Ice Cream Creations is released!  You can find more about Wendy at
