I guess it’s safe to say that summer has arrived in the northeast US.
It’s ice cream season! What do you like to put on top?
Hello m’dears, and Happy Monday! I’m writing to you from the past. Well, kind of. I’ve been staying in my childhood home for four weeks now; the weather has been glorious, and we’ve done a lot to bring back precious memories – zoo trips, ice cream by the fountain, and travelling old school in an actual […]
You know what sucks about moving away from the city? No more ice cream trucks in the summer!
Kulfi. Sometimes known as Indian ice cream, this delicious dessert is one of my favorites. Thicker and creamier than ice cream or gelatto, it also often has flavors that are unusual in western supermarkets. It’s also supposed to be less complicated to make. And did I mention that it is vegetarian? (Not Vegan though, sorry!)
Summertime means ice cream, and if you’re lucky, ice cream means toppings!
Oh Persephoneers! What an ice creamy week it has been!
Last day of Round 1! I definitely won’t be surprised to see some upsets in these match-ups.
So, I went to Oberlin College, where Ben & Jerry’s got their start. In the legend I heard, Ben was a townie, Jerry a student, and the ice cream a Winter Term project; the veracity of this statement is potentially quite dubious, but nonetheless, every incoming freshman was given a coupon for a free pint […]
Are you salivating yet? Have you raided the freezer section of your nearest convenience store? Are you weeping because neither your wallet nor your cholesterol level can accommodate your need to eat ALL THE ICE CREAMS? Okay, that last one, that’s 14K projecting. My sincerest apologies.
Greetings, Persephoneers! It is hot! I am underemployed! Let’s talk dairy products!!
Persephoneers! Greetings and salutations! It’s hotter than Hades here in lovely NYC and I’m bored (and broke) off my ass because almost all my students are currently abroad; what better way to ensure I remember what day of the week it is than to run another dairy-based bracket, this time focused on the sweet, cooling […]
I love a good cold salad in the summertime. Given the popularity of potato and macaroni salads this time of year, I can tell that I am not alone. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I am in good company. But, as with most good things, the cold salad had […]
Because Mother Nature has gone feral, it’s been 80 degrees in Indianapolis for a couple of weeks. I’ve already done most of the spring work in the flower bed and my True And Sworn Enemies, the giant wasps, are starting to build a house right outside the window of the Persephone treehouse. It’s the brunch […]
Everyone’s favorite Vermont-based ice cream company, Ben & Jerry, is rolling out a new treat for you based on an SNL classic skit just in time for the holidays: Schweddy Balls.
