Recently, my mom and I were driving around in the country, and found ourselves in the northwest corner of Connecticut, in the town of Granby. It's a sleepy little farm town with a handful...

Sweet Cherry Jam

I love jam. On toast. In marinades for ribs and glazes for chicken. Warmed up and drizzled over vanilla ice cream. This sweet cherry jam is a fabulous way to enjoy cherries as they come into season.

Raspberry Ice Cream Sundae in an Edible Chocolate Shell

What's better than an ice cream sundae? How about an ice cream sundae in an edible chocolate bowl? Now that's what I'm talking about. Recently, I made a big batch of homemade peanut butter cups. While...

Pomegranate-Orange Sorbet

When I was just a little mouse, my mom occasionally got me a pomegranate as a treat. It was fun to open, got you properly sticky and covered with ruby-colored juice, and glistened with...
