Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Absolutely delicious mash! A few changes: we added the salt into the cold water and stirred it and it infused the potatoes like the garlic. We also added herbes de provence, a taste of olive oil infused with truffle, and cracked peppercorns -- French garlic truffle mashed potatoes. Leave on the red skin, the contrast in texture while eating as well as the color is lovely. Using half and half instead of milk and stirring in an egg yolk as you first mash the potatoes adds a marvelous flavor too. (The last trick comes is derived from Alton Brown.) Thanks for the recipe!

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Thick, rich and very sweet ice cream. Found Goya makes cream of coconut too but it wasn't quite as delicious as Coco Lopez? Tried it with shredded organic coconut the first time and it was too chewy, as the other reviewers said. Then added in halved macadamia nuts for the second batch and let it soften before serving it at a dinner party. People were in heaven! They actually thought about getting an ice cream maker after tasting it and a David Lebovitz Aztec "hot" (spcy) chocolate ice cream that accompanied it. Tastes super with homemade white chocolate sauce and whipped cream on top.
