Fried Sweet Corn with Basil Butter

As silly as it sounds, I would have never thought to fry corn. Since steamed, boiled, and grilled are the more common preparations, I tend to gravitate toward those. But when I saw this recipe as part of the July Improv Challenge, I knew I needed to try out frying […]

SRC: Chocolate Biscotti

The first time I had biscotti was not long after Tom and I were dating. We were at his parents house and his mom picked it up somewhere. I wasn’t expecting to like it since it just looked like an overcooked and hard sugar cookie but I was pleasantly surprised […]

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Oh cake batter, how I love thee. I thought about a poem or haiku here but I’m tired and I can’t think of any rhyming words that have to do with cake batter. Clatter, fatter, matter… How I love you, delicious cake batter But how I wish you wouldn’t make […]

Minny’s Chocolate Pie

Have you read the book or watched the movie The Help? In the story, Minny is known for her delicious chocolate pie that everyone thinks is to-die-for. However, when Hilly fires Minny, Minny adds a little something extra and unsavory to her chocolate pie before delivering it to Hilly. I’ve […]

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

After making the salty caramel ice cream I knew I couldn’t put my ice cream maker back into her pretty little box and stick her on the shelf for months to come. It was too easy to make ice cream that tasted like homemade. Granted, it takes more time than […]

SRC: Salty Caramel Ice Cream

Nothing says summer to me like the music of an ice cream truck coming down the street. Its one of those sounds that instantly invokes childhood memories of playing outside all day, hearing the familiar jingle and chasing the ice cream truck down the street with your friends to enjoy […]
