Food at the speed of life: Ice cream pie made to be shared

OK, this ice cream pie isn’t especially healthy, but it looks unique and very tasty. It’s also supposed to take only 15 minutes to make, plus time freezing unattended. I recommend finding someone to share the pie with and not making it too often. Again, the recipe is from www.tasteofhome.com and reprinted with permission. From […]

My turn: Mistakes make memories

I tried to make a chocolate cream pie once. It didn’t work. I was maybe 14 or 15 when I decided to make Mom a chocolate cream pie for her birthday. It’s what she often made herself for her birthday. Since Mom’s birthday is in July, school didn’t interfere. One afternoon, I pulled out the […]

Never found a pie I didn’t like

Pie could very well be one of the best things in this life. Three layers in sweet harmony —crust, filling and topping. My mouth waters just writing about pie. I don’t know if I can name a favorite kind of pie because I can’t really remember a pie I didn’t like. It was encounters with […]

The versatile sandwich can make just as good of a dessert as it does a lunch. I put Nutella, (spreadable chocolate, one the greatest things since the sliced bread you put it on), marshmallow cream and the ever-useful banana in a sandwich. For a small time investment, you get a rich dessert. You may remember […]

Food at the speed of life: Chocolate, bananas go good in s’more pie

Unlike s’mores, it’s cold, but it has chocolate, marshamallows and graham crackers, plus bananas. It’s rich. My co-workers tested the recipe and seemed to like it. Victoria, an […]
