Why You Should Blanch Vegetables Before Freezing
Second to homemade ice cream, the best things in my freezer are the bags of fresh vegetables I keep frozen. Whether from the grocery store or the farmers market, whenever I find a great deal on veggies, I always stock up. I don’t necessarily need them when I buy them, but I will eventually, so I freeze them for later. Before stashing my favorite fresh veggies in the freezer, there’s one thing I do that makes them hold up even better.

How To Make an Ice Cream Cake (Even Better than Dairy Queen!)
I recently discovered that ice cream cake is a surprisingly divisive topic. When I asked friends and readers whether actual cake belonged in ice cream cake, the responses were severely split. Of course! said some. Absolutely not, insisted others. It turns out, you see, that many, many people were raised on the Dairy Queen and Carvel ice cream cakes, which are nothing but pure and cold ice cream, with chocolate cookie bits in the middle, and a luscious layer of whipped frosting over it all.

Cook up a few pounds to stash in the freezer, then dole it out for weeknight meals all month long. Or make a huge batch and feed a whole crowd of people in one go. Today, let’s talk chicken: Simple, inexpensive, and relatively quick, chicken has some advantages over the heavier beef and pork.

Well, I’m in trouble now because I just discovered how to make these little cheese puffs. With their addictive cheesiness? They are super easy to make at home.

How to Preserve Chives
Who doesn’t want a dollop of melted chive butter on their grilled steak or a dash of zesty chive vinegar on their salad in the dead of winter? I love blowing my guests away at a dinner party in December with flavors that evoke the smells, memories, and tastes of summer. Chive is a garden staple that can be preserved and used in many ways. Finding ways to enjoy the vibrant flavors of summer all year-round is one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening.

How to Freeze Peaches So You Can Make Cobblers and Pies All Year Long
I always get a little overzealous during peak peach season. Their beautiful hue draws me in, then their perfume seduces me into a stupor, and the next thing I know I’m leaving the farmers market with a full peck of peaches. A peck is nearly 15 pounds, so once my stupor fades away, I realize there is no way my family can eat that many peaches before they go bad (although we’ve tried).I prefer to peel my peaches before freezing because it makes them more versatile to use later.

Sukkot Recipe: Kabocha Squash Soup with Pomegranate and Pepitas
On Sukkot, which begins tomorrow night, Jewish families around the world will head outside to eat under the stars. As the Jewish calendar’s harvest festival holiday, there is a tradition of building temporary outdoor huts called sukkahs, which serve as al fresco dining rooms during the weeklong holiday. As wonderful as it is to have an excuse to dine in the great outdoors, autumn can be an iffy time of year — sometimes gloriously crisp, other times uncomfortably chilly.

Recipe: Lemon Curd Ice Cream
What is it about lemons and summer? If you happen to live in a citrus-growing region, you know that it’s possible to find ripe lemons on trees year-round, but that they are actually in peak season in the dead of winter. I think it’s thanks to the summertime tradition of lemonade stands that makes me associate the tangy flavor with the hot months.

Recipe: 3-Ingredient Healthy Ice Cream
Come January, the hum and buzz of juicers everywhere builds and I hear of more and more people making resolutions to clean out their systems and drink more juice, at least temporarily. No judgement; in fact, last year at this time I was on a five-day juice cleanse so my juicer was working hard and I was feeling alive and clean. This year, though, I am more in the mood to make my ice cream machine hum rather than my juicer.
