My fellow Seattle blogger Peabody is hosting a virtual house warming party to celebrate her new home in the real world — what a kool idea! Peabody asked her readers to “bring a dish” which she will republish on her blog.
Peabody had been really bummed a few weeks ago that she missed the Nigella Express book signing event in Seattle, so I decided to bring a Nigella Express recipe to Peabody’s party, with a Mango Power Girl twist ;) This is Nigella’s No-Churn Pomegranate Ice Cream with my twist – Marionberry Swirl and a Pistachio Topping, which I am sure the Domestic Goddess wouldn’t mind.
I changed a few things around in the recipe, too. I used lemon juice instead of lime, just to use what was handy. I swirled in Northwest Marionberry Syrup from Lopez Island Farm to localize the recipe. I added pistachios for a crunch, and because they are an ingredient Nigella and I both love and use often.
Congratulations on your new home, Peabody! I offer something seasonal – pomegranate, something local – Northwest marionberries, and something MPG – pistachios. Your new home looks great, I bet you guys are enjoying decorating it this season…have a Happy Holiday! I am glad to know another local blogger :)
