Yes!Chef! loves meatballs. And he likes to make big, fat meatballs with lots of flavor, which usually means a high degree of fat. We are not afraid of fat because, as Julia Child said, “Fat is flavor.”
The headline quote sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? I made that up because I couldn’t find any good peach quotes. And who wouldn’t love someone that brings you 12 perfect peaches? A friend of my youngest son’s showed up the other day to play some video games and he brought us the peaches. I think I will adopt him.
Last year when I was in the throes of looking for perfect homemade ice cream recipes, I found a couple of recipes for Ice Cream Sandwiches that I thought would be fun to make. Well, time moves along, and next thing I knew it was this summer. Then there was the wedding and now we are remodeling a mid-century modern home. After the wedding we decided to take a few days (in my case more than a few days) relaxing in Lake Tahoe. I was able to pull out some of my summertime recipes that I had saved on Pinterest. I ran across a very unusual ice cream sandwich recipe by The Baking Bird. It’s called Saltine Brownie & Bourbon Ice Cream Sandwiches. I like recipes that sound unique and use surprising ingredients. This recipe had several things that I thought were unique to an ice cream sandwich recipe…roasted saltine crackers, brownies and bourbon ice cream that is not made in the ice cream maker.
