7-Up IceCream (Soda Pop Sherbet)
7-Up IceCream (Soda Pop Sherbet)

Cook time = ice cream maker time. Really, you can use any flavor soda pop you want. Mmmmm, grape Nehi sounds great! This makes a soft-serve type of ice cream, but if you like it harder set, just put it in the freezer for a few hours. ...

Almond Filo Snake
Almond Filo Snake

Sweet and crunchy - and looks great on the plate, too! A sweet ending to a Moroccan meal! You can use butter in place of the oils, but watch carefully to prevent burning. It will also alter the taste considerably.

Almond Pear Tart
Almond Pear Tart

This tart uses sheets of phyllo as the base, instead of pastry dough - making it much easier! Just be careful because the phyllo is fragile! This is definitely a company-worthy dessert! Source is Martha Stewart.

Anise Liqueur
Anise Liqueur

It's so expensive to buy liqueurs here in Costa Rica because everything is imported and heavily taxed. Leaving no choice but to scour the net and make my own! This is Emeril's version. NOTE: There is a two week steeping time
