Brain Sorbet

February 24, 2010

I’ve never actually seen Michelle in person, and yet for the last 3 years she has been an inspiration.


I “met” her during a job search and we’ve kept in touch ever since.  The first time I spoke with Michelle, she generously offered some fabulous concepts that opened my mind to new possibilities and helped propel me forward, unthawing a bit of brain sorbet, as it were. 

Michelle’s energy, outlook, positivity, ideas, personal excellence, and success mark her as one of my most admired, favorite women.  You can tell she’s just good people.

She recently sent out an email entitled Coach Notes, which I’m including below.  It contained some focusing statements and questions that spoke to me, now they can speak to you, too.

Below you’ll find Michelle’s contact information so you can hire her as your personal coach (which you should do immediately)!

Food for Thought:

  • It is exactly what you love most that qualifies you for your next step.
  • Never lose faith in your personal passions and desires that have lead you to this place.
  • What would you do if you were ten times bolder?
  • Describe the perfect day
    • Week
    • Year
    • Life
  • Take Actions for the Soul
  • Brain Sorbet is one of my passions!


If you or someone you know would benefit from exploring these questions and basking in their reality – just email or call me.

Blackberry Ice Cream
(recipe and photo found at One Ordinary Day who referenced: Southern Food)


  • 2 heaping cups of blackberries
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 1/2 c. sour cream  (I’ve made this with full-fat and light sour cream, and they both worked great.)


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook blackberries, sugar, and lemon juice until sugar is dissolved and berries are soft. 
  2. Cool berries to room temperature or place pot in a big bowl of ice water to cool them down faster.
  3. Put berry mixture in a blender and puree. 
  4. Pour puree through a fine mesh sieve to remove seeds. 
  5. Return mixture to the blender, along with heavy cream and sour cream.  Pulse until combined. 
  6. Chill thoroughly before adding to ice cream machine. 
  7. When chilled, freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.



Blackberry Lime Sorbet
(recipe and photo found at One Ordinary Day who referenced: Annie’s Eats, adapted from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz)


  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 4 c. blackberries
  • 3/4 c. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • splash of tequila (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Puree blackberries in a blender or food processor with the sugar syrup.  Press mixture through a mesh sieve to remove seeds, then stir the lime juice into the sweetened puree.  Add a splash of tequila, if desired.
  3. Chill mixture thoroughly, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.


It was Michelle’s influence which led me to making this night light!  Know someone who could use a bit of inspiration?  How about this Succeed Night Light, from MaidenShade:


  • Here is Succeed, a night light that through positive words, edification, and inspiration, encourages and reminds us that like the little engine that could, "I KNOW I CAN!" What a great gift idea for oneself (I now have one in my bathroom), or ones friend who could use a bit of bolstering about now. Say, why not give the gift of light?
