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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
