Culinary Telepathy + Ice Cream Sandwiches

We were heading over to our friends' house yesterday for dinner and I offered to bring dessert. D and I had made homemade raspberry-blackberry-chocolate ice cream. And I had in my head that I wanted to make ice cream sandwiches. So, during my lunch hour, I ran out to see if I could pick up any cookies, but the small ones I found were rock hard and the big ones were waaaaay too big. I skipped it.

When I got home from work, D had baked homemade snickerdoodles with Nonna. And they were the perfect size and texture. Talk about culinary telepathy!

I don't have D and Nonna's cookie recipe. I'll get it. But I do know that instead of just rolling the dough in cinnamon and sugar like people normally do, D rolled it in a mixture of spices that included cardamom, sea salt, and black pepper. Love that kid!


Here's the ice cream part of the dessert...

Ingredients
  • 2 C fresh raspberries
  • 1 C fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 C chipped semisweet chocolate
  • 1-1/2 C heavy whipping cream
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar

Procedure
Place all of the ingredients - except the chocolate - in a large mixing bowl and mash some of the berries into the cream. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and process according to your machine. After about 10 minutes of churning, add in the chipped chocolate.

Ours took about 40 minutes to come to a soft, gelato-like texture. Spoon ice cream into a container and freeze before serving.

To serve, scoop (I used a mini truffle scoop) ice cream onto one cookie and top it with the other. Press gently.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
