Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream
I'm not a coffee drinker, so I've never really cared for coffee-flavored foods. Case in point, at our first ice cream party, I didn't even offer a coffee flavor. The second year, I recited a list of potential flavors to a friend and when she realized coffee...

Cherry-Limeade Sorbet
Riffing on Sonic Drive-In's Cherry-Limeade Soda , I came up with a frozen version, a sorbet! It was a huge hit at our ice cream party, especially with the kids. It was demolished, completely devoured! Unlike the drink, the sorbet uses actual cherries rather...

Sparkling Cherry Limeade
Frugality gave birth to this drink. That and memories of Sonic Drive-In. After making a cherry pie, I was left with three cups of drained cherry juice.  Additionally, I had a cup of cherry-flavored syrup from an ice cream-making attempt. What to do with my ...

Beet Soup with Goat Cheese
Wow! This soup is fantastic! I finished making it, turned my back, and before I knew it, half the stockpot was emptied by my husband and daughter. My apologies to beet lovers, but who knew beets could be so good? I don't know if it was the chicken stock (I ...

Tartine's Salted Chocolate Rye Cookies
The first time I made these cookies, I told my kids, "These better be REALLY good, because I had to make a special trip to the store to buy that crazy rye flour." Bottom line: MAKE that trip!  Yep, these cookies ARE really  good. And why wouldn't they be? Y...

Cherry Blossom Tea Ice Cream with Plumped Cherries
This is a take-off on Jeni's Earl Grey ice cream which is wonderful, but OH. MY. GOODNESS. This cherry tea version is to die for!!! The second I opened the foil pouch of Sakurambo tea bags, a Mack truck of cherryness blasted out and ran me over. I was in he...

Lemon Ginger Ice Cream
This is a great ice cream recipe especially if you don't like separating eggs or worry about curdling them. Instead you use the whole egg, and for the thickening agent, you make a quick and simple lemon curd in the microwave instead of on the stove top. I a...

Banana Blueberry Quick Bread with Cinnamon Crunch Topping
I should call this the Ugly Duckling Banana Blueberry Bread! Let's just say, when I pulled it out of the oven, it wouldn't have won any beauty contest or blue ribbons at the county fair. What with its deflated, sunken-in, craggly surface; blueberries at the...

This quick and easy coleslaw is perfect for busy summer days when you don't want to spend a ton of time preparing food and you want something cold and crunchy to offset the heat. Buy pre-shredded bags of cabbage and carrots and mix the dressing directly in ...

Bean Kale Soup with Poached Eggs
The soup has its origins in Tuscan peasant food, but with the addition of poached eggs it gets spiffed up and might even be deemed fit for the merchant class. It's great either way! Bean Kale Soup with Poached Eggs adapted from Essentials of Classic Italian...

Introduction
I have way too many hobbies and way too little time. Between working as a teacher's aide and raising 3 kids and a hubby and a cat, I try to get in some traveling, photography, cooking, gardening, sewing, knitting, piano plunking and learning Mandarin.
