Ahhh, ice cream. Even better: salty and sweet ice cream. The combination of salty and sweet is one of my favorites. I love taking a bite and not knowing exactly what it will taste like.

Also, in case you were wondering, I use this Kitchenaid ice cream attachment for my stand mixer. It works great – during the summer, I keep the bowl frozen in the freezer so that any time I’m in the mood for ice cream, I can grab it and make a refreshingly cool treat immediately.  


I finally ate the last of this last night, and I’m really sad that it’s gone. It was the perfect ending to the last weeks’ worth of dinners.

I guess I’ll just have to make some more. 


I am a firm believer that ice cream is appropriate at any time of year, even when it’s -20′ outside (although it never gets quite that cold here in the Pacific Northwest), but it is especially precious and fulfilling when the sun is blaring and you’ve been playing outside all day.

Gluten-Free Grilling Tips

June 10th, 2014 by Jennifer Harris

gluten free grilling tipsTime to fire up the grill and start barbecuing because summer is here. It seems not a day goes by when the aroma of grilled meat doesn’t fill the air. If you are cooking for someone who is gluten intolerant, just a few simple steps will ensure a safe and tasty meal. Eating a burger with a knife and fork works in a pinch, but it just isn’t the same experience, or very filling.

I love attending barbecues, but there are a number of sources of gluten that needs to be considered, such as: condiments, toasting buns on the grill surface, seasonings, marinades, and utensils. I like to come prepared with my own gluten-free bun. I don’t expect the host to provide a gluten-free bun because a) how would they know what to get, b) what if the gluten-free bun contains additional allergens I avoid, and c) I don’t want the host to fuss over me, or exclude me because they don’t think they can feed me safely.

Here are some great tips for successful gluten-free grilling whether you are the host, or the attendee: (more…)

Reformulated grilled chicken at Chick-fil-A

April 30th, 2014 by Jennifer Harris

Chick-fil-A-logo-big

On April 14, Chick-fil-A introduced new and improved grilled chicken breast and nuggets to its lineup. This new grilled chicken is infused with a smoky taste by marinating it in a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic, and savory herbs. According to the company, this technique creates a tender, juicy filet with just the right amount of smoky flavor.

According to the company, they spent seven years and more than $50 million to reinvent its grilled chicken recipe. The largest portion of the investment came as the company worked with Garland Grills to create a proprietary grill. This new grill sears the chicken on cast-iron grates like it was cooked on a backyard grill, only faster.

chick fil a nuggets gluten free“We started with a mission to create a best-in-class grilled sandwich, and after testing 1,200-plus recipes, we landed on a taste so remarkable that we decided to extend the flavor into a full grilled line,” said David Farmer, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of product strategy and development. “Our previous grilled entrees were good, but not remarkable. We wanted a grilled chicken recipe that is just as ‘craveable’ as our original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich.” (more…)

Alternative Baking Company Gluten Free Cookies

This product update is long overdue and it is just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to new gluten-free product launches in 2014. Expo West is just a few weeks away and I can’t wait to be overwhelmed by gluten-free products. Gluten free is slated once again to be one of the top diet trends in 2014 and that means more gluten-free products are being developed. Hopefully, these new products will trend towards health food and won’t be loaded with fillers, sugar, salt, and artificial color/flavors.

Here is the first new-to-me gluten-free products installment of 2014: (more…)
