Weekend cooking

Filed under: Cooking,Personal — cec @ 7:34 pm

I made a few things I’ve never made before for dinner last night, including lemon pizza and two kinds of ice cream.

The lemon pizza recipe is from the Wednesday Chef and was mentioned by someone on an IRC channel (etselec? I can’t remember – sorry).  K and I don’t eat salmon roe, so I substituted finely chopped capers.  Overall, it was pretty good, but we didn’t slice the lemons thin enough and they over powered the pizza.  If you’re going to do this, try to get the lemon slices down to about 1mm.

We also made a couple of ice creams.  In general, we like to do different types of ice cream and to try new things.  Strangely enough, we had never made fruit ice creams (chai – yes, cinnamon – yes, fruit – no).  Fortunately, I had picked up a pint of blueberries and a pound of cherries.  So, two different flavors: blueberry and cherry!  They both came out well in their vanilla ice cream base.  Now if I was slightly more adventurous, I would have made the cherry in a chocolate base; and if I was really adventurous, I would have ignored the fruit and made rosemary ice cream as described by a friend last week 🙂


  1. It was actually paideka, not me, on the lemon pizza recipe, which I want to give a try myself sometime. And if you like interesting ice cream, you MUST MUST MUST go to Locopops as soon as possible. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.

  2. Good to know. These days too much is a blur and I couldn’t remember who I should thank. So, a quick update on the lemon pizza. I had the left overs today and broiled them in the toaster oven. It turned out to be much more mild. If the lemon slices don’t turn slightly brown, I would recommend a bit of broiling (maybe with tin foil on the pizza crust to prevent burning).

    Thanks for the tip on Locopops. skvidal’s told me the same thing. I guess I actually have to do it now 🙂
