Toasted Rice Ice Cream

If I had to choose a dessert to enjoy for the rest of forever, it would be ice cream.

Toasted Rice Ice Cream

My favorite is to scoop some into a mug late at night and let it get a little melty while watching TV. But I’m also happy to pull into a drive-through for a vanilla ice cream-like product cone. Just no nuts, please and thank you.

Sadly, we don’t have Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams where I live. But she has shared lots of recipes for ice cream and other treats in her book. And she shared a technique for getting super smooth ice cream without making custard that is full of eggs. [Read more…]

Coconut Chicken Curry Soup

We should already be well into soup season, but you wouldn’t know it by the weather we’ve had around here lately.  We had one early snowfall that dumped six inches on every flat surface in the neighborhood, including the two lounge chairs on either side of a big umbrella still sitting on our back deck.  I wish I had taken a photo of that.  Since then, we’ve had warm and sunny afternoons with only somewhat chilly evenings.  However, that’s about to change because we’re experiencing the “warm before the storm.”

Still, in my brain it is soup season.  Several days a week I pop open a can of soup to heat up for lunch and that’s just great with me.  There are a lot of tasty canned soups out there.  Have you tried Campbell’s Gouda Bisque with Chicken or Progresso Chicken Tortilla   No?  Click  here for a coupon.  So good for lunch.
