Ice Cream Week: “Butter Beer Ice Cream” (Day 5)

Butter Beer Ice Cream

“Butter Beer Ice Cream” from DailyWaffle

The original title for this from the blog I got it from is “Humphry Slocombe’s Ice Cream Book and Butter Beer (at Home!)” and can be found on  the DailyWaffle. I really like that name. Waffle…

The thought that beer and ice cream and all that other yumminess could possible be in my mouth? Driving me a little insane right now. But there’s more! The Daily Waffle (I really do like saying that…) claimes that there are more recipes like this one in a book and so I have checked out the situation and there is, indeed, a book… And now I must own it. Because I’ve now seen some of the recipes in a sample up on Google Books and yes. They are ownership worthy in my current opinion. And my current opinion is that there should always be more awesome in the world. And awesome ice cream would just about solve any ailment I can think of in my life right now. So go ahead and check it all out for yourselves. And if you’re too lazy to make the extra click to the Daily Waffle you can see the sample of the book by clicking here: Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Book

The Close to a Great Month: National Grilled Cheese Month

How many of you actually remembered that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? How many of you think it should be moved to a more appropriate month? Like January of February… Hmmm? Yeah. Think how much sexier it would be to get (and eat) a grilled cheese on V-Day.

Well I didn’t come up with April for this fantabulous food of amazing but someone did and I’ve been honoring those who made up foodie holidays before me. But I think that me and my Foodie Nation need to make a few changes here and move the month long celebration to a month where we’re not thinking about bathing suits and getting tanned in places that haven’t seen the sun in a while. But in all fairness, grilled cheese is amazing all year round and always will be. So here is my compilation of all the grilled cheese sandwiches I have seen and approved of this month:

Corned Beef Sandwich with Guinness Caramelized Onions and Grainy Mustard

The SAVEUR Video Festival

Beer

Check out videos like this one titled “Beer” by Luke Goodman in the “Under 60 seconds” Category.

So in between filling out pre-approvals, check requests, co-teaching a class, budgeting and planning for a DC field trip and trying to figure out the best location for my attempt at growing plants in the office I discover fun things like this: The SAVEUR Video Festival.

I rarely remember to have my camera on hand to take photos of the food I actually make at home. I NEVER make videos because when I do it doesn’t matter how fancy my equipment… those videos are just unappetizing.

But here are some people who got their stuff together and made some fantastic videos. And all about food! Check them out and share your favorites with us.
