I have been thinking about a dessert for the Eggland's Best Brunch and I decided that homemade ice cream is simply the best. I made some for the holiday and it was a treat for everyone. I am about to make another batch. I love the idea, I can stick it, in the freezer, ignore it completely and remove it for the brunch.
I made my ice cream recipe and added some dark cherries, halved .
You can cut the cream even more and use 1 cup whole milk and two cups cream. I only keep the one percent milk, in the house.
1/2 cup one percent milk
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 - 2 cups halved cherries
Pour 1 cup of the cream into a 2 quart saucepan.
Add the sugar and salt and stir mixture until the sugar dissolves.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the vanilla extract. Then add the milk and remaining cream.
Chill for 30 minutes and pour into ice cream maker and follow the directions from the manufacturer.
In the last two minutes, add the cherries which will spread throughout the ice cream.
I cooked some berry jelly and put it on top but it hardened rather than stay syrupy.

Brussels sprouts like broccoli and cabbage are cruciferous. This group offers a unique composition of antioxidants that may provide several health benefits. Brussels sprouts are low in calories and offer protein, vitamins and minerals to help build a healthy human. My first issue with brussels sprouts is that it took me years to spell it correctly. Each time, it came up, in writing, and I admit, that was not too often, I would stare into space asking myself does brussel get an S, at the end or is it sprout that gets the S. For some reason, I could not remember that both end with that S. I am happy to tell you, I overcame thi
It says, "thai" so I have to like the Thai Chicken San Choy Bau that we are making this week in our Donna Hay Wednesday group. It was a bit spicy and the chopped chicken was a nice change of pace. Kayte selected this recipe from On the Shelf on page 124. I tried it with the greens and it was very good and then I put it on spaghetti and it was spectacular. My toddler granddaughter even liked it. Must have been the hot sauce. I used romaine for the greens and I subbed in red pepper and added some Sirracha to spice it up to make up for the real chilis. Do check out the other cooks' dishes at our Wednesday with Donna Hay site.

That week, we concentrated on carrots. I like to check out our vegetable, not only for health benefits, but also for the names of their sisters. Carrots are related to parsnips, fennel, parsley, anise, caraway, cumin and dill. I didn't have a clue about many of these. I, have never seen carrots of other colors or at least, if I had, I didn't know, they were carrots. I am going to a good produce store, looking for purple or red carrots, to start my search. It is fun, shopping when purposely looking for new vegetables. I have definitely expanded my horizons. When, I was thinking about what to make with carrots, I
