Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream Recipe >

On 07.15.2016 by Kelsey Banfield

There is something about the strawberry and rhubarb flavor combination that screams summer to me. The tart rhubarb and extra sweet strawberries complement each other so perfectly. One can easily tell that the sweet flavor isn't from granulated sugar, it is a natural sweetness that can only be produced by warm fruit that has enjoyed a long spring growing in the sunshine. This ice cream opened the summer season for us last week. We returned from our annual Cooperstown 4th of July celebration and I set straight to work making it. I even made our homemade ice cream activities a little easier on us this year because I used our favorite Davidson’s Safest Choice®  eggs. They are pasteurized in an all-natural warm water bath to eliminate Read More >

Red Velvet Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Recipe >

On 07.13.2016 by Jocelyn Delk Adams

I have a serious jones for red velvet cake. In fact, it ended up being on the cover of my first cookbook so you know I adore it. My love for all things red velvet had to end up in an ice cream flavor at some point. Thanks to Davidson's Safest Choice®, you will now be able to experience the most sensational and delicious ice cream red velvet style. This recipe starts with building a rich custard base. Because Davidson's Safest Choice® eggs are pasteurized, this recipe is beyond safe to consume and even have the kids help with, because there's no risk of Salmonella. These eggs are hormone free, antibiotic free, and vegetarian-fed which means you can just have fun with your family instead Read More >

Toasted Marshmallow Frozen Custard Recipe >

On 06.21.2016 by Angie McGowan

Summer is my favorite season. There’s so much fun to have and so many things to do. One of my favorite things we’ve been doing for years now is our weekend beach trips. We live very close to Daytona, so we get to drive on the beach. I’ll pack a picnic lunch and we’ll spend the afternoon on the beach. It’s so much fun and so easy because you have your car right there. When we’re headed home we always stop at the same frozen custard shop. It’s my favorite and the perfect way to end a fun filled beach day. They have so many different flavors, but I love the simple flavors like vanilla the best. Then I can add any topping I’m in the Read More >

Roasted Berries Ice Cream >

On 06.17.2016 by Nam Nguyen

We are mere days away from summer…and you know what that means?? Sunny days, beautiful weather, shorts and flip flops all day long, and ice cream 24-7. Oh yes, ICE CREAM! And when ice cream is homemade—it’s even better. So dust off those fantastic churning machines and let’s get to work! Now I’ll be the first to admit, every time I think about making ice cream, I always stop and ask myself—is it worth the effort? Why not just go out and grab a pint? But then I remember how ridiculously easy it is to whip up a batch, particularly when you have a trusty ice cream maker that does all the churning work for you. Added bonus? You know every ingredient that goes in Read More >

Strawberry Cookies and Cream Ice Cream >

On 06.15.2016 by Lindsay Livingston, RD

Summer is here and so is the heat. If you’re looking for an easy treat you can make at home for the hot summer months, homemade ice cream is always a winner in my opinion. Today I’m sharing a simple recipe for Strawberry Cookies and Cream Ice Cream with you. Added bonus- I chose to make a recipe that didn’t require an ice cream maker so anyone can make it! No special equipment needed. The trick to making ice cream without an ice cream maker is whipping the cream yourself to help infuse air into the recipe. The trick to making ice cream extra creamy, in my opinion, is adding egg yolks. The benefit of using Davidson's pasteurized eggs is that you can mix the yolks right Read More >

Mirza Ghassemi (Persian Eggs with Eggplant, Turmeric, and Tomatoes) >

On 05.19.2016 by Laura Basher

I spend a lot of time learning as much as I can about my Persian background. You see, my mother is Iranian and my father is American and I have lived most of my life in the U.S.  And since I married an Iranian, well, I have a lot to learn. Persian food and Persian culture, the real Persian culture without religion mixed in, is quite extraordinary and beautiful. Both include vibrant colors and robust flavors. We love our herbs and our dishes are not heavily spiced or spicy like other cultures. Everything melds together to create a very flavorful dish. Stews, basmati rice, and kabobs—we have quite a variety of meals to share with the world.  I enjoy discovering them, cooking them for my Read More >

Spinach, Kale, and Steak Torte Recipe >

On 04.28.2016 by Angie McGowan

About two years ago, after years of struggling with my weight, I decided to make a real change in mine and my family's diet. I decided it was time to start cooking breakfasts, lunches, and dinners in a more traditional fashion. That meant almost eliminating our sandwich routines, french fry addictions, and after dinner sweet treats. I also really cut back on all those unnecessary processed carbs like breads and crackers and replaced them with healthy carbs like fresh fruits and vegetables. Over the years, I’ve continued to make other changes, too. I’ve limited sugar, cut down on soybean oil (which I’ve realized is found in just about everything, even the body oil I was using!) and limited dairy. I’ve tried to model our diet and Read More >

Paleo Basil Chicken and Egg Lettuce Wraps Recipe >

On 04.25.2016 by Nam Nguyen

I will be the first to admit when I create recipes, practices such as low-fat, sugar-free, low-carb, or even gluten-free are not the first instinctive methods I lean towards. That’s not to say I am against living a healthy lifestyle—in fact, that’s far from it. But I do recognize that a strict regimen, quite frankly, takes me a lot of time and planning. I have met a bunch of folks who are quite skilled at it and it becomes their second nature. But for me, I tend to strive towards a practice of balance so I can enjoy a little decadence from time to time. For example, if I have a bacon cheeseburger for dinner today, I will have a salad for lunch tomorrow. For Read More >

Paleo Spring Breakfast Salad >

On 04.20.2016 by Lindsay Livingston, RD

From gluten-free to paleo to ketogenic, there’s no shortage of diets out there for people to follow. While there are some similarities between diets, there are also some major differences and as a Registered Dietitian, I believe they all have their pros and cons. It seems, however, no matter how you choose to eat, most people would agree that we should all be eating more vegetables! Rich in fiber and nutrients, they’re a great addition to most diets. For most, it’s easy to add veggies to meals later in the day, like lunch and dinner, but many people overlook the opportunity to add vegetables to breakfast! Enter this breakfast salad! Yes, this is a salad in the traditional sense of the word because it’s full Read More >
