If “we all scream for ice cream,” why is there gluten in it? Really, ice cream should be inherently gluten free but some brands aren’t and others may be cross contaminated. If you make it yourself, you KNOW it’s gf (and you can control the fat content). Besides, it’s fun to do and this recipe is soooo easy, your kids will want to do it. It makes about 5 cups of premium flavoured vanilla ice cream but can be used as a base for other flavours. See below for some suggestions, but the only limit is your imagination!
You will need an ice cream maker of some sort. We use a Cuisinart model and it works great, but if you don’t want to buy an expensive electronic model, try one of these ice cream balls from LL Bean instead.
Trimble Cake is a luxurious Orange Chiffon Cake that my mom always made for birthdays or special occasions. She would bake it in a tube pan and ice it with sticky and oh-so-sweet seven-minute frosting. But baked in an oblong pan, it adds a delicious twist to strawberry shortcake, which is how it is prepared here. It’s named after the neighbour who generously gave my mom her amazing recipe.
What is Geoff’s Chicken? Melt-in-your-mouth-tender pieces of chicken in a creamy tomato and onion sauce with hints of garlic and just a bit of peppery heat. Serve with rice and a tossed salad for a complete meal!
This is a conversion of one of Geoff’s all-time favorite meals. It takes a bit of time in the oven, but it’s super easy to prepare.
Fresh, light, and intensely fruity … who doesn’t love an icy cold sorbet on a hot summer’s day? It’s also surprisingly easy to make, and this version is chock full of vitamin C, beta-carotene, and dietary fibre. Not to mention, totally gluten and dairy free!
Make this even more kid-friendly by freezing the sorbet in muffin cups with popsicle sticks or in a fun popsicle mold. They’ll LOVE it!
In this dish, sweet and savory come together to transport you to paradise. Satay is perfect party fare – especially when served with peanut sauce – but we like it so much, we pair it with jasmine rice and stir fry vegetables for a light summer meal.A great BBQ option in the summer heat!
"The thing about eating the Black and White cookie, Elaine, is you want to get some black and some white in each bite. Nothing mixes better than vanilla and chocolate And yet somehow racial harmony eludes us. If people would only look to the cookie all our problems would be solved." - Jerry to Elaine (Seinfeld, Season 5, The Dinner Party)
