It’s been kinda quiet in these parts this week. Sorry about that!
I’ve been a little sidetracked with a project – otherwise known as, putting the FINAL edits on the Freekeh eCookbook! Also writing the introduction (which I’ve been putting off for months) and coming up with a name. Yea, so this thing is really happening. And you’ll be able to get your hands on the eCookbook in just a couple short weeks!! We can celebrate with freekeh for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert!
Keep your eyes peeled, I’ll announcing a pre-sale soon. You can also sign up for email updates – here – so you don’t miss out!
This Cantaloupe Sorbet has been on my mind all summer! It’s fruity, refreshing and everything you could hope to cool off with on a hot summer day.
You’re gonna love this – this sweet sorbet has only three ingredients. Three! And one of them is water.
It’s also shockingly quick to make. Like, I-made-this-batch-on-a-weekday-morning-before-work-quick-make. It still need a little more time to harden, but the bulk of the process was completed before walking out the door at 8:30am.
6-7 cups cantaloupe (approx. 1 large melon), rind & seeds removed and cut into chunks
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Make simple syrup by combining water and sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over low-medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and cool completely.
Add the simple syrup and cantaloupe in a blender and process until the melon is pureed.
Transfer the sorbet base to a bowl and refrigerate until fully chilled.
Pour the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker, and churn according to your ice cream maker’s instructions. Transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze overnight.
Hello, from beautiful Charleston, SC! I’ve been here for the past few days to celebrate my friend Lisa’s upcoming wedding. Charleston has been high on my list of places to visit for quite a while. It’s been a blast experiencing what this amazing town has to offer. It is beyond adorable! The food….so delicious and so many awesome restaurants. There are cute shops and nice beaches. I only wish I had more than just a weekend to explore, take everything in, and of course, eat more! If I happen to miss my flight home tonight, it may not be an accident.
* This travel blog is my new addiction. p.s. be prepared for a huge dose to travel envy!
* This ice cream sandwich trick is totally genius.
A super belated thank you for your well wishes on last weekend’s triathlon! After having this race on my to-do list for a few years I finally got around to doing the New Jersey State Olympic Triathlon. It was such a fun day. The race was really well organized, the course was flat & fast which was […]
Question….at any given time, how many different types of milk products do you guys have in the fridge? You know, like, dairy milk, half & half, almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk. I’m sure I’m forgetting a few, but you get my point. I’m just trying to gauge where I stand on the spectrum of […]
A few years ago I went on, a super amazing trip to New Zealand. Some friends from Australia were heading over for a long weekend for birthday celebrations, and convinced me to join them. I obviously stayed for more than a long weekend. I spent nearly three weeks on a solo road trip around the […]
After last weekend’s triathlon I suspected I’d feel like I’d want to reward myself with a giant ice cream cone once we got home from the race. Except that’s not exactly how things played out. I wanted to want ice cream. Like, really wanted to want it. Instead I had a super intense craving for […]
Work and life, well mostly just work, have been keeping me super busy lately. I’m starting to feel like I’m just past the point of struggling to keep my head of above water everyday. It’s a good feeling. I wouldn’t say it’s better by leaps and bounds, but staying afloat day to day feels a […]
Can we all agree that summer is a time for simple, fresh meals? Quick, easy, hassle-free meals where fresh summer produce can totally shine. Honestly, there are so many nights I’m happy to dive into my farmers market stash and make a big salad for dinner. Sometimes I’ll top it with a piece of simply […]
Back in April I made a simple rhubarb compote, and have been making it on an almost weekly basis ever since. I suppose it’s safe to say I’m a bit obsessed. It’s just that it’s so gosh darn delicious, and if the early days of summer were to have a taste, this is it. This compote […]
Scenes from yesterday’s ride (alternate caption….will cycle for ice cream). Hi there! I hope you had a wonderful July 4th, filled with fresh summer cocktails, lots of grilling, ice cream sandwiches, sparklers and fireworks. I also hope you didn’t get rained on! I’m spending the long weekend up in Dutchess County. It’s only about 90 […]
