1-Ingredient Cherry Ice Cream & How to Freeze Cherries

Cherry season is in full swing around here. While it’s on, I feel it is my bounden duty to eat as many of them fresh as is humanly possible. To this end, I usually order in the neighborhood of sixty and eighty pounds from my local Amish friends. We all do our best to make [Read On]

Watermelon Lime Sorbet, Frozen Watermelon Margaritas and a Mocktail

I love Independence Day. Maybe it has something to do with my ever so slight problem with authority. (I can hear my dad and mom laughing from here.) Maybe it’s because the hair stands up on my arms and a chill runs down my spine every time I hear a snare drum and a patriotic [Read On]

Pure Sweet and Puckery Lime Sorbet and Summer Shandy Beer Floats

It’s a not so tightly held secret that I adore ice cream. In fact, I eat it almost every day of the week. Two of the last five years I’ve given ice cream up for Lent and I do believe my children would tell you they hope I never make that sacrifice again. I’m going [Read On]

I’m a mother (of five boys, thankyouverymuch) and I’m a daughter, and we’re talking about Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes, so what’s the problem? The problem is that there as many views on Mother’s [Read On]

Lemon Cream No-Bake Mini-Cheesecakes

As I type this, spring is actually, kind of, sort of, quite nearly behaving like spring. As in, there’s sunshine and a breeze instead of gunmetal grey skies and a biting wind.
