BIG GAY Ice Cream!!!

My heart skipped a little beat when I saw that this book had finally been released....well, to tell the truth, I didn't know these guys were writing a book so I was esctatic when I came across this book.  Now I can get my Salty Pimp on!!!

I have wandered across the Big Gay Ice Cream truck twice in the City (NYC).  I love everything about this food truck.....the bright colorful truck, the bright colorful guys inside, and the silky smooth ice cream with exciting flavour combinations.  My absolute favorite is the Salty Pimp.  The Salty Pimp has vanilla ice cream, dulche de leche (which I would sell my brother for), and a chocolately/cinnamon-ey taste.  

Now(!!) with the Big Gay Ice Cream book, I can make the Salty Pimp anytime I want! So there!  Page 93 for all of you out there.  Buy the book.  Make the Salty Pimp.  If you make nothing else from the book, then then book has paid for itself.  But I don't want to stop there; the Ray-Ray Sundae looks divine (because I love figs) with a homemade fig sauce, pine nuts, and EVOO.  As you guessed, the sundae is named after Rachel Ray.  Fitting.  My only moment of disappointment when perusing the book late last night in bed with my yellow flags (yes, I am an accountant and yes, I use flags to mark pages for easy access) was coming across the Mermaid Sundae.  It sounds divine and I'd love to try it but there is no recipe for key lime curd.  I know that I can find a recipe easily for this or just substitute key lime juice and zest for lemons in my lemon curd recipe but guys, GUYS, why would you give the recipe for whipped cream and not the key lime curd???

The book is a fun read as it is written in the form of a yearbook (annual for those from Lexington, NC).  Bright colors, glossy pages, pictures that will make you want to dive into the back of your cabinet and pull out the ice cream maker, and oh-so-fun recipes!  The Big Gay Ice Cream book is for everyone to get their Salty Pimp on. Even for those ultra-conservative types.  I'm looking at you, X and Y.
