Erin's Story

Ten years ago I spent my honeymoon in Tahiti. To commemorate I bought some Tahitian vanilla beans and made amazing Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream. I couldn't stop there though, so I created something in honor of the barbecues on the Tahitian beaches to accompany.

Thank you all for your comments, they made my boring morning meeting a pleasure! I will try to find that recipe. It came out of an ice cream recipe book that my ex-husband got in the divorce. Yes, the marriage was cursed but the recipe isn't!
