I have to admit that I have been a bit slow to jump on the one-ingredient banana ice cream bandwagon. I keep seeing recipes for creamy banana “ice cream” popping up everywhere but as someone who takes ice cream very seriously I was skeptical to say the least. That being said I am so glad […]

Every year I try to come up with new and fun hamentashen flavors. I always make sure to make a bunch of the traditional poppy because those are our favorites, but it wouldn’t be Purim around here without at least a few crazy hamentashen (like s’more or chocolate chip cookie dough). I have some fun […]

Not So Plain Vanilla Ice Cream

by Shoshana on February 5, 2014 · 13 comments

I have never understood the use of the term “plain vanilla” to describe something boring. I happen to love vanilla and nothing comes close to the fragrance of a fresh vanilla bean. That being said, there are not so many “plain vanilla” recipes on this blog. That is because vanilla is one of the most […]

Whether that means strawberries in the spring or pumpkins in the fall, certain flavors ¬†evoke the seasons in a truly perfect way. Many seasonal foods are based on the agriculture […]

Since July is National Ice Cream month I thought it was high time I post an ice cream recipe. I happen to love ice cream, and never really need an excuse to make it, but an entire month dedicated to ice cream is absolutely not something I want to miss! While I love a cold […]

Shavout, coming seven weeks after Passover, is the holiday that celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai. It starts tonight and I have spent the last few days cooking up a storm. It is traditional to eat dairy meals on Shavout so it is nice to be making different things than I usually […]

I always think a long weekend is the perfect excuse to take a little break from our everyday routines and do something extra fun as a family. We had wanted to go camping with some friends this weekend but by the time we tried to make a reservation all of the campgrounds within a two […]

I am not in complete denial. I do realize that it is already the middle of November and I should be posting recipes for all kinds of delicious fall treats made with warming spices. Or pumpkin. Or at least something in the pie family that would fit in nicely at a Thanksgiving feast. Yet here […]

Eggnog Ice Cream

by Shoshana on December 26, 2010 · 9 comments

In the fall I look forward to the eggnog appearing on the shelves at the grocery store. Even though I usually resist buying it until later in the winter it is comforting to see one of my favorite treats waiting there for me. In my family the tradition is to drink eggnog and eat fruitcake […]
