I’ve reached that point in the summer where panic sets in; the realization hit me that I didn’t give my ice cream maker nearly enough of a summer workout. I’m also working on some no-churn ice cream recipes. Don’t worry, even if they’re not ready to share before summer’s end, I won’t let that stop me. The great thing about this space is I can do what I want, when I want. No editorial calendars to follow. Last week I gave Mikey’s peanut butter pie a makeover. I made a no-churn salted peanut butter ice cream filling. It was phenomenal, and I can’t wait to share the recipe. But first, I’ve got a lot of loose work ends to tie up, plus packing for our Cape trip in a few days.
Hope the week is being gentle to us all. Much as I get stir-crazy with the kids by this point in summer vacation, I’ll be sad to see school start up again in a few weeks. Be back in a bit, and until then here are some oldies but goodies from the archives to keep cool the rest of this month.
