Ice Cream: Lime

I’ve been on a lime kick this summer. The abundance of key limes and key lime juice in the grocery store has been pretty alluring. My love for sweet lemon has a close second which is a love for sweet lime. This recipe really delivers.

To say that this was a project would be something of an understatement. And, I’ll be honest with you, I’m not sure I would do it again… at least not like the way I did this time. See, my kids finished at school this past June and they are moving on to a new school […]

This salad is about as easy as it gets to prepare. The trickiest part is finding good quality ingredients. This is going to be true whenever you are making anything that has only a small number of ingredients. Mediocre items don’t have anything to hide behind so everything has got to be as good as […]

There’s nothing like a cold pasta salad on a hot summer day. But, as much as I love mayonnaise mixed into regular old tuna fish or hard boiled eggs I really rebel against it when it’s mixed with pasta. It just doesn’t work for me so I tend not to make many cold pasta salads.

A few years ago Alton Brown did a funny episode of his show, Good Eats, about corn meal. His premise was that he had to explain to someone from South Carolina and someone from Southern Italy (at the same time) that grits and polenta are actually the same thing. In the show, neither were happy […]

When I was in college there was a Chinese restaurant that delivered to campus called Hunan Peking. It wasn’t uncommon for my friends and me to order from there a couple of times a week. The first time I ordered crab rangoon at a friend’s urging I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Creamy […]
