Come in, Come in, Come in. It must be time for coffee and cake, sweet tea and sandwiches or is it too early for a cocktail? Yes, I am a foodie. As we get to know each other better I will share some of my favorite recipes with you and hopefully you will share with me. I love old recipes, new recipes any recipe is good with me, especially if it has a story that goes with it. If you like the recipe let me know. Have suggestions to improve the dish, I would love to hear it. However if you want to trash the recipe because you either haven't read it correctly or simply don't have a clue about the basics of cooking, keep it to yourself or tell your neighbor.
I live in the country, on a farm, you know, horse, pony, donkeys, cows and three dogs. The house I live in is about 100 years old and the best way to describe it is shabby chic. When I say, come in, you will be coming in the back door and directly into my kitchen, which at one time was the back porch. We all still refer to it as the "back porch".
The largest grocery, Kroger, is 10 miles away, one way. Not a Publix or Harris Teeter, my favorites, for 400 miles. I could cry.
We are going to have our first big snow fall today, 2-4 inches, perfect for making Snow Cream. What do you mean you have never had Snow Cream! Gather up the kids and lets get started.
1 gallon of snow, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon vanilla, extract, 2 cups whole milk,half and half, or cream, more of less.
When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. I know it's easier to scrap it off the car, but do you really want car dirt in your snow cream. When bowl is full, stir in sugars and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. This does not wait. Serve at once.
