Homemade Ice Cream (the no fuss way)

What screams summertime? ICE CREAM! Plain and simple.
So that’s what we have here for you – our very best (easy) ice-cream recipe that will take no time to imagine and create, and even less time to devour. We promise you that everyone from all ages will flip for this fun treat.
A little note here from our test kitchens– we used a lot of imagination once we got started as to what we added for variations in the ice cream. Please do the same. Oh, and be sure to make some double batches: this freezes well and it’s great to have at a later date. We hope you enjoy the ice cream as much as we do. Please share your favorite variation with us!

Super Summer S’mores

We’ve all been there: someone says, “marshmallow” and then all you can think about is toasting one over an open flame… smooshing it between graham crackers with a mountain of creamy, dreamy chocolate.

You may have a backyard fire pit, you may have access to a beach to make a bonfire, or you may just use oven/stove top; these tasty s’mores can be made any way you want! Get creative with some add ons… (our grandchildren love to add pretzels!)

THE BEST ROAST CHICKEN EVER!

an exclusive article from Laurie Burrows Grad, grandmother extraordinaire…*
A delicious recipe that says: ‘happy first day of spring’!
The key to this dish is to have the butcher cut out the backbone of the chicken to “butterfly” it. To butterfly a whole chicken means to remove the chicken’s backbone so you can open the chicken like a book, or a butterfly, and lay it flat – another term also used is to ‘spatchcock’. This is a basic recipe. If you would like to embellish it with rosemary or other herbs, feel free!

Double the recipe and have enough cold oats for the week!
