Join me on my delicious journey revisiting American home cooking in the era before convenience foods became popular (1919 to 1955), as I bake and cook from old cookbooks and recipe cards of home cooks purchased at estate sales in Akron, Ohio, and other exotic locations.

Ten Reasons to Eat Ice Cream in Winter
There's a blizzard raging outside my window now, but that's no reason to avoid the grand dame of all desserts -- ice cream. Plus I want to share a wonderful photo essay, Ten Reasons to Eat Ice Cream in Winter by Heather Phelps-Lipton (which features ACakeBakes) that was just published on Nona Brooklyn, a delicious food blog. Reason #2 is "The whole warm gingerbread situation."
Heather, above, stopped by one day last week with a pint of the most delicious ice cream ever (Steve's Small Batch Bourbon Vanilla) to photograph it atop a slice of warm gingerbread I had just pulled from the oven. She did, and once she was finished taking pictures, I ate the gingerbread a la mode. And after she departed, for I do have some dignity left, I devoured the rest of the ice cream.

Agreed, Paula. And one day, I'll make some since I recently trash-picked an ice cream machine!Delete
