peach cobbler ice cream


I don't have an ice cream machine, and have always shyed away from any ice cream related recipe. However, when I saw this easy method to make ice cream without a machine on Kevin and Amanda, I decided to give it a go... and it has changed my life forever. This method is so easy (just pop it in the freezer and forget about it) and so rewarding (we're making our own ice cream people!). My family couldn't get enough of this stuff, its so smooth and creamy that no one would ever guess that it's not churned. There's no doubt that homemade ice cream is the supreme summertime treat, and there's also no doubt there will be many more ice cream recipes to come now that I have this awesome method up my sleeve!


The peaches at the Farmer's market are perfect this time of year -- sweet, juicy, and not at all mealy. I think we bought around 20 of them! I was planning on making a peach cobbler, but then decided that ice cream would be a happy substitute since these days its (almost) too hot to bake. Instead of plain peach ice cream, I jazzed it up a bit with graham cracker crumbs and a healthy dash of cinnamon to simulate the warm flavors of peach cobbler. It's basically summer in a cone.


Needless to say, this peach ice cream is a new favorite recipe of mine, and will always be special to me as it is the first ice cream I have ever made. This is the perfect way to celebrate the rich, festive flavors of summer. I encourage all of you who, like myself, stay away from the homemade ice cream scene to hop on over and give this recipe a go :)
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
With love,
Erica
Ingredients
2 cups heavy cream
1 (14 oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 peaches, diced
1 cup graham crackers, crushed (I used cinnamon grahams, of course)

Whip heavy cream to stiff peaks in large bowl. Whisk sweetened condensed milk, butter, vanilla and cinnamon in large bowl. Stir in peaches and graham cracker crumbs. Fold in whipped cream.
Pour into a 2-quart container and cover. Freeze 6 hours or until firm. Store in freezer.

julia's banana bread

I just woke up from one of the best dreams I've ever had.  At the moment, I am sitting on Amtrak -- rolling through miles of factory towns and burnt out buildings on my way to New York City.  As much as I love the city that never sleeps, I seriously needed some sleep. Thank the Lord it's spring break and I can finally log out of my school e-mail account, hang up my backpack, and get some serious shut eye.  About an hour ago, the bumpiness of the train lulled me to sleep, and I was transported far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city...


It's a bit of a pet peeve of mine when people tell me about their dreams.  Not their dreams as in aspirations, but their nonsensical, rambling, nighttime dreams about purple cows and police chases.  Please forgive me, but I need to share this awesome dream with you guys.  It's nothing crazy or complicated  -- just a small tree house, a winding road, and some really good banana bread.

recipe showdown: belgian waffles

It's humiliating.  It's tragic.  It's the decay of Western civilization.
... and I can't stop watching it.


Ever since I heard that little, blond, 4-foot-tall toddler's famous catchphrase"a dollar makes me holler honey boo boo," I've been in love.
She's hyperactive, uninhibited, and foul-mouthed... and I'm kind of obsessed.


But since this is technically a food blog, I should be talking about food, not the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."  I did a little research and the Honey Boo Boo clan has some *pretty* interesting dishes.
Have you ever heard of "Sketti"?
Spaghetti, doused with a sauce that is one part margarine, one part ketchup.
However, the most infamous Honey Boo Boo specialty is her "go go juice" -- a secret mix of Mountain Dew and Red Bull that gets her "go go"-ing for her pageants.  If you aren't familiar with "go go juice," click here.  Thank me later.


Anyways, I have my own version…

sex in a pan

Did I catch your attention? Good.
This is a sinfully decadent, sinfully easy dessert with a sinfully rewarding response.

It's not the daintiest, nor the prettiest. As a matter of fact, it's basically a hot mess in a pan.
But you know what? Despite it's frightening appearance, people just can't keep their hands off of it.
I made this for the first time for my school's Winter Sports Banquet.  In the morning, I put it in the fridge, all wrapped up in foil with a big sign saying DO NOT EAT...


When I came back to get it for the banquet, some sneaky little devil had eaten half the pan.  I wonder who it was...
Was it the P.E. teacher, trying to get his chocolate fix before he had to teach another period of freshman Health?
Was it the librarian, trying to drown her sorrows due to the fact that no one checks out anything but textbooks anymore?
Was it that "innocent" little freshman boy from Baking club?
I'll never know...

However, what I do know is that som…
