Rhubarb Sorbet

Rhubarb Sorbet

I don’t think I mentioned it, but a few weeks ago I received an ice cream maker from my parents for my birthday. Since then I’ve made vanilla ice cream (twice), strawberry frozen yogurt and this delightful rhubarb sorbet....

Saturdays with Scamp – Introduction

Scamp Maltipoo Puppy
