1-Ingredient Cherry Ice Cream & How to Freeze Cherries

One Ingredient Cherry Ice Cream | www.foodiewithfamily.com

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…

Watermelon Lime Sorbet, Frozen Watermelon Margaritas and a Mocktail

Watermelon Lime Sorbet and Frozen Margaritas | www.foodiewithfamily.com

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…

Pure Sweet and Puckery Lime Sorbet and Summer Shandy Beer Floats

Summer Shandy Beer Float with Pilz and Lime Sorbet | www.foodiewithfamily.com

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…

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes (Not made with strawberry flavoured gelatin!)

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes | www.foodiewithfamily.com

I find Mother’s Day a surprisingly difficult subject about which to write. I’ve started and stopped this post at least five different ways. 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…

Piña Colada Smoothies | www.foodiewithfamily.com

  Piña Colada Smoothies are my new go-to smoothie. They’re kind of fabulous. You know how I’ve told you I was a picky eater when I was a kid? I was a total texture-phobe and I was dead picky about flavour combinations. My mom now says, “Hey, we just didn’t know you were gourmet.” My…

Ancient Grains Cranberry Dark Chocolate Granola | www.foodiewithfamily.com

I am more than just a wee bit obsessed with granola. I eat it on yogurt with fruit almost every day. On the days when I don’t have it on yogurt, I have it, um, on my hands. As in, I eat it by the handful. I especially adore clumpy clusters of granola. While I’ve…

Peanut Butter Molasses Ginger Chews | www.foodiewithfamily.com

Cookies are the instant gratification fix of the food world. You mix things together, you scoop, you bake and you iiiiiiinhale them. Or at least that’s what I do. This recipe was developed at the request of my dear-ole-dad who asked me to find a road-tested peanut butter and molasses cookie recipe for him. I…

Quick & Dirty Raspberry Cheesecake Fried Pies

Quick & Dirty Raspberry Cheesecake Fried Pies from Foodie with Family.

Get the yoga pants out now, folks, because I discovered something very dangerous indeed when I was making empanadas last week. I’ve told you before of my abiding love for Goya Discos and empanadas and that I always keep a stash of those lovely little shortcut pastry rounds in my freezer. How can you go…

Homemade Chocolate and Vanilla No-Cook Instant Pudding Mix from Foodie with Family

We are on the tail end of a two week tour of our household by the flu. The only person who has -thus far- remained unscathed is my germaphobe husband. Don’t get me wrong, I am the original Purell poster girl, but next to me, my hubby is Howard Hughes. The poor guy looks like…
