Strawberry or Raspberry Romanoff  

   This recipe was taken from a Louisiana Classic Cookbook entitled, "Who's Your          Mama, Are You Catholic and Can You Make A Roux" by Marcelle Bienvenu.                  I found the book for a few dollars on a used book website, Thrift Books.  All I can          say is that I highly recommend the book and that the author's life story, which she      interweaves along with a whole slew of delicious recipes, will keep you highly              entertained for quite a while.  Here then, is the first of her recipes that I tried.   


​  Ingredients:

​  2 cups of French Vanilla ice cream.

  1 cup fresh strawberries or raspberries.

  1 tablespoon sugar.

​  3 ounces Grand Marnier.

​  1/2 cup whipping cream.

​  Procedure:

  1.  Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

  2.  Serve immediately in large wine glasses.  Garnish (or not) with a fresh sprig              of mint. 

​  3.  It is also good served over cubed pound cake placed in a small bowl.

  **  If you are not going to serve immediately, place in small freezer proof bowls              and freeze for later enjoyment. 

  **  I think this would also be good with fresh peaches and perhaps some Peach             Schnapps instead of the Grand Marnier.

​  **  This recipe, as written, serves two.
