Front Burner: Lemony cookies embrace ice cream

posted: 07/01/2015 1:59 a.m. Discuss

A scoop of cold, creamy ice cream on a hot summer day is a great way to finish a meal or simply enjoy a treat. But bowls aren't exactly portable. And you need a spoon. Popsicles are nice, but they melt. Quickly. And there's the matter of what to do with the stick. But ice cream sandwiches -- they're portable and there's nothing to throw away.

No-churn ice cream

posted: 06/24/2015 2 a.m. Discuss

One of the benefits of making ice cream at home is the opportunity to create flavors not available at the grocery store. However, most homemade ice cream recipes require a machine -- either electric or hand-crank -- to churn and chill the ice cream base. But that isn't the only way to make ice cream.

Front Burner: Frozen desserts too good to miss

posted: 06/24/2015 1:58 a.m. Discuss

Sometimes I set out to research and write a specific story -- say, something on frozen desserts -- and it morphs into something else -- how to make ice cream without an ice-cream maker. In the process I often end up with delicious recipes I can't use in the story. These two are excellent examples and they are simply too good not to share.

Front Burner: Joe's barbecue elixir sweet, smoky, spicy

posted: 06/17/2015 1:58 a.m. Discuss

It isn't very often that my husband announces he has a new recipe he wants to try. With the exception of a handful of dishes -- meatloaf, biscuits and gravy, spicy beef and potato wraps, chocolate chip cookies and burgers -- he leaves the cooking to me, preferring to be the official taster.

Cooking with diabetes: Shrimp dish fats high, but they're good ones

posted: 06/17/2015 1 a.m. Discuss

Spicy shrimp, creamy avocado, juicy tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts and briny capers combine in this ideal-for-warm-weather entree. If desired, the "boats" can be made in advance and chilled until ready to serve.

Front Burner: Easy-to-cook bulgur peps up brown bag salad

posted: 06/10/2015 2:02 a.m. Discuss

I pack a lunch -- often leftovers from recipe testing -- most every day to eat at my desk at work. Lately I've been on a salad kick. But not just simple mixtures of greens and dressing. I've been adding cooked cracked wheat, more commonly known as bulgur.
