Cinnamon Toast Crunch Ice Cream

March 29, 2012

Last month’s 5 Star Makeover event was all about beets. Given that they are sometimes called super foods I found it amusing that this month’s theme was junk food. Talk about jumping from one end of the spectrum to the other. Our challenge was not a makeover of junk food, but to incorporate it into [...]

Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

February 21, 2011

There’s a common strategy in the cooking world that if you want to introduce someone to something new - especially if it’s a food they think they don’t like – you should pair it with a favorite food.  That means putting ew-inducing vegetables on pizza or trying out a new spice blend, say Garam Masala, on french [...]

Guiltless Vanilla Bean Ice Cream & Black Raspberries

July 9, 2010

It seems like wherever you grow up there are stereotypes of what people from your state or region are supposed to be and act like.  They are the kind of blanket statements that create the basis for those “You know you’re from Boston if…” jokes and or those quizzes that tell you what percentage Chicagoan or [...]

Low Fat Sweet Corn Ice Cream

August 17, 2009

My waxing poetic about food continues with yet another summer-inspired recipe.   This time the star ingredient is corn.  Being originally from a major corn producing state, corn is inextricably linked with summer for me.  The landscape surrounding my parents’ house is framed by endless rows of lanky corn that transition from pastoral green to pale gold [...]
