    Picked a peck of peaches at one of the local pick-your-own farms. Today's peaches are Ernie's Choice, a very tasty yellow freestone. Also picked a few blackberries and raspberries.
  2. I sampled the mango Fruitero ice cream tonight and am in complete agreement with you. Planning to go to the store tomorrow to stock up on passionfruit and coconut. Will probably pick up some more McConnell’s ice cream too. This summer is made for enjoying frozen desserts.
  3. Stopped by the thrift store at my mom's retirement community and picked up a few things. This fun glass platter for $4. I think that it is for deviled eggs and that is my plan for it. Two vintage CorningWare pieces for $6 each.
  4. You could also go with one of the compressor ice cream makers. They have come down in price and I see several on Amazon around $200. I currently use the Ninja Creami. I also have a Cuisinart ice cream maker, the type that uses a pre-frozen canister. I don’t make large quantities of ice cream or sorbet so these options work very well. If I need to make a lot, I’d look into a compressor ice cream maker. @weinoo posted a link to the one he uses a bit earlier on this topic.
  5. Well, now I’ll have to try the coconut too! Please report back on the mango and the guanbana.
  6. @JoNorvelleWalker thanks for recommending Frutero, I hadn’t tried it before. I went to Whole Foods today and got the Frutero passion fruit and mango flavors. Also picked up McConnell’s double peanut butter chip and vanilla flavors. When I got home, I sampled the Frutero passion fruit and it is yummy! Nice and creamy with good passion fruit flavor. Will probably return and pick up a few more pints while this sale is running.
  7. Baked a Dutch apple taart last night. Combination of my Mom's recipe and Cees Holtkamp's recipe (https://youtu.be/C5YzHQMxo1w?si=B-u69vcWtWI5Hmin). Thrilled with how it turned out. Spoiler alert for raisin haters -- this taart / pie contains apples and raisins. 😉 pre-bake and pre-lattice after the bake slice!

    Breakfast 2024

    Trader Joe's cheese blintzes with a sauce of strawberries and sour cherries.
  9. It has been awhile since I've baked sourdough bread. This one just came out of the oven and it is singing to me. 🙂
  10. A reminder, we have a sourdough discard topic! Great place for ideas and to share information. https://forums.egullet.org/topic/160766-sourdough-discard-recipes-bakes-and-cooks/#comment-2247526
  11. Thank you for sharing your recipes and methods on Instagram! So, how did you like the flavor combination of strawberries and matcha? I’m not a fan of every matcha dessert but I do enjoy some of them.
  12. One of my favorite TJs cookies. Once open, I store them in a ziploc freezer bag and haven't noticed a change in texture.

    My tart cherry tree is doing better each year! Today's harvest. 🙂
  14. Photo with tape measure, ~8 inches. It looks new; not seeing any of the wear that I see in your picture. @Kerry Beal is this one of your spatulas?
