A Taste of Summertime Heaven

I made dinner for a family from church the other night. I was packaging up the roast beef and trimmings I’d been cooking all day when it suddenly occurred to me — I hadn’t done anything for dessert. In panic mode, I ran through a quick inventory of what was immediately available and what I could come up with, when I spied my full cookie jar. The boys and I had made Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies the day before. I’d used slivered almonds as the nut and they were beyond wonderful.

I decided to use my Smooth & Creamy French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and make ice cream sandwiches.

Smooth & Creamy French Vanilla Bean Honey Ice Cream

My grandfather had an ice cream maker that sat in a wooden tub and churned out the most amazing tasting, sweet and creamy concoction ever known to man’s mouth. We would wait and wait for summer time, then beg him constantly to make some ice cream. I have been on a search for a recipe like his ever since I got my first ice cream maker. This one comes mighty close. Just a few ingredients – I used honey instead of sugar – and you’ll have “the” ice cream that your kids and grand kids will beg you to make.

Menu Monday 06 JUN 2011

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 6th. My menu will be scaled down a bit for the next few weeks. Kaylee is gone, and Gregg won’t be home until later in the month, so the meals are going to be much more toddler-friendly. As far as desserts go, I have some fresh peaches, so I think I’m going to make a Fresh Peach Pie. I also made a French Vanilla Bean Honey Ice Cream – I will post that recipe this week.

Menu Monday 11 APR 2011

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of April 11th. As far as desserts go, the weather is remarkably warmer than when I left for spring break, so I’m going to pull out the ice cream maker and make some maple ice cream. I also need to fill the cookie jar with something yummy, and get some Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Cookies in the mail to Gregg. I’m making dinner for Kaylee’s softball team Wednesday night, so I’m also going to make several batches of Delectable Deluxe Brownies. We also have four softball games this week, so I’m trying to at least make the protein of the dinner portable for Kaylee to grab and eat in the 30-45 minutes she has from the time she gets home from school to the time she has to be at the softball field.

Menu Monday 26 July 2010

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of July 26, 2010. As far as desserts go, we still have leftover birthday cake, so I’ll probably not make much this week. If I do anything, it will be some homemade strawberry ice cream and some cookies to load up the cookie jar. We are going out of town Wednesday morning and will be home Saturday, so I’m not going to post those days.

Maple Snow Ice Cream

Here in Kentucky, we got a couple inches of fresh snowfall last night. After lunch today, I thought I’d give a try at homemade snow ice cream. I’d seen it mentioned a few times around the blogging world, but I wanted to make a healthy version without white sugar. I saw maple syrup used in one of the recipes I read, and thought that would be the perfect flavor to blend with the vanilla and the cream. It was quite delicious.
