Coffee Ice Cream lover? Try this Espresso Chocolate Gelato!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Espresso Gelato with Dark Chocolate Chunks

Espresso Gelato with Dark Chocolate Chunks

* I made this gelato and tried some before bed… it is delicious… but it did keep me awake!

espresso gelato with dark chocolate chunks!

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar, plus 1/4 cup
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 shots espresso
  • 1/2 cup ground espresso beans
  • 2 cups chopped dark chocolate

In a saucepan combine the milk, cream, and 1/3 cup sugar over medium heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whip the egg yolks with the remaining sugar using an electric mixer until the eggs have become thick and pale yellow, about 4 minutes. This can also be whipped by hand.

Pour 1/2 cup of the warm milk and cream mixture into the egg mixture and stir. Add this mixture back into the saucepan. Cook over very low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture becomes thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 10 minutes.

Place a strainer over a medium bowl and pour the warm custard mixture through the strainer. Stir in the espresso and espresso grounds. Stir in the chopped chocolate. Chill mixture completely before pouring into an ice cream maker and follow manufacturer’s instructions to freeze.

Yields 1 quart

American Dream? Homeowner Satisfaction Survey Results

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Is the American Dream alive and well? Are Homeowners satisfied?

Is the American dream alive and well?  Are Homeowners satisfied?

 

According to the recently released results of the the 201 National Homeowners Satisfaction Survey from HomeGain– the survey revealed that 72% of surveyed homeowners are satisfied  with owning a house.  26% were dissatisfied… and mostly because of home depreciation.

People from the northeast were the highest at 77%… midwest the lowest at 68% by region.

Surprising to me those who had purchased a short sale were the most satisified of all at 83%… perhaps the  arduous process creates the feeling of “winning”!

 

The least satisfied homeowners wer the 18-25 age group, coming in at 45%, the only group to have a satisfaction rate less than 50%.  Perhaps these younger homeowners have unrealistic expectations when purchasing their home… also– they have purchased in a down market, and have yet to experience the appreciation in their home that more experienced buyers have encountered.
