Strawberry & Vanilla Cream Ice Cream

There are times when I curse the summer heat here, and when it’s 105 F and hotter day after day, I can’t be blamed.  But then I remember that hot days do come with certain advantages, like excuses to eat ice cream.

Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup

Greek Spiced Candied Plums & Plum Brandy (or Plum Spoon Sweets & Syrup!)

Plums are liars.  Okay, not all plums lie, but when they do it’s really bad, but it’s nothing that booze and sugar can’t fix.  Well, at least in this case.

Creamy Caramelized Onion Pasta Sauce
