Popcorn Ice Cream

IMG_8383

How do I describe how good popcorn ice cream is?

Well, it taste like popcorn (my favorite food group), it’s smooth and full of vanilla flavor. Pair it with a sprinkling of salt, maybe some salted popcorn or caramel corn or my favorite with movie popcorn add-ins — Milk Duds (don’t do that any longer) and you will have a surprisingly good dessert. Crunchy, sweet, salty, what more could you want?

One beautiful night in Santa Fe back in September, with the sun going down and the temperature starting to drop my twin sister, two friends from high school […]

Pumpkin Walnut Squares

Pumpkin Cake, Bar, or Square — Good thing!

Who doesn’t need one more pumpkin recipe for the holidays? When I found this recipe I wasn’t really looking for another cake recipe but decided to give it a try and I took it to craft circle to my expert tasters. I have to omit that I did not try it because I’m still on this diet. But, I got thumbs up from everyone that tried the cake and it was gone long before we broke for lunch.

Now, I wish I had tried the cake. I’ve done this before, on […]

In the beginning…. there were those who could ski… & and then some not meant for that sport.

Many, many, manyyyy years ago we went on our first ski trip with our neighbors Mary Jo and Randy (Overland Park, KS) to Steamboat Springs, CO. Of course the kids did well first trip out and by end of trip, the Isler’s were taking them on blue (maybe even black) slopes. Me, on the other hand, had my leg wrapped around a tree the first day and being stubborn like I was (am), refused help down the mountain by the ski […]

Julia’s Berry Clafoutis

So what is a clafoutis anyway?

You should make this while you can still get those beautiful, juicy summer berries.

A clafoutis is a French baked dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries that are arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a batter that is somewhere between a cake and custard. And, when it is dusted with that messy but breathtaking delicious powdered sugar it makes a dessert that you want to hide away from everyone and keep it all for yourself.

If the dish contains anything other than the traditional cherry then it is supposed to be […]

Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream

IMG_5867

Gotta try at least one new ice cream recipe this summer.

Have you ever seen fields of lavender? When we were in France several years ago I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see fields of purple; but we were there too early in the year. I have seen fields of lavender in Texas at Becker Vineyards and also at Matanza Creek in Santa Rosa, California which were both breathtaking. Since purple is one of my favorite colors I wanted to try some using some culinary lavender I had bought in Austin awhile back.

I was taught years […]
