4 January 2010

Happy Birthday to Tim.

I started a batch of coffee ice cream the day before, and today the girls and I tried to make it in the ice cream maker we got from a wonderful local, second-hand store. While the result was very flavorful, the ice cream machine was not a success. We used this recipe from Simply Recipes:"> This is a recipe we will use again...

While the girls baked a batch of peanut butter cookies from the 1986 edition of The Joy of Cooking, I tried my hand at making mayonnaise using a recipe from Root Cellaring by Mike and Nancy Bubel ( Though I could have been a bit more accurate when measuring out the honey, the result was satisfyingly delicious. With egg yolks, dry mustard, honey, vinegar, lemon juice and oil as ingredients, how could you go wrong?

For a cake, I made a pumpkin spice cake (from a pumpkin I had stashed in a lower cabinet) with chocolate frosting from James Beard's American Cookery (*27s+American+Cookery). It was very good, though I didn't make enough frosting the first time around (had to make more the next day).
