For those of you who follow my blog and posts, you may already know that I do not own an ice cream maker. The reason? It’s just not necessary to make really delicious homemade ice cream. I have made many different flavors of a rich ice cream called semifreddo without the use of an ice […]

This isn’t the short version of how to make strawberry liquer — it takes the scenic route by way of the 80’s — so if you’re in a hurry, this may take a while. I lived for a few years in Columbia, Maryland not far from the Merriweather Post Pavillion, which is a concert venue […]

The winter here on the east coast can be quite dangerous—not only because our weather can be so unpredictably cold and snowy but also because when the weather is so terrible, I spend a good bit of my time in the kitchen coming up with new recipes and techniques to share with my loyal readers.  […]
