Pumpkin Ice Cream 1

Hooray internet! Yesterday was a productive day. Internet installed in the morning then painted the master bedroom, accent wall in the guest bedroom, and the entryway. As far as my food-life goes it’s been mostly cereal, pop tarts, mac and cheese, and dining out. So do not be fooled, I have not truly broken in the new kitchen and my posts may be sparse still for another week. Hopefully back to normal soon though as my POD that I haven’t laid eyes upon in a year arrives today!

This ice cream was made while I was still in Knoxville, recovering from the flu. My dad actually made it as the first ice cream made in his new KitchenAid ice cream maker that he got for Christmas. Since I was moving out he had to start learning how to use his own! My dad always buys an excess of fresh pumpkin every fall to cook and make puree which he then freezes. What better flavor to start out with than pumpkin? Especially when this ice cream tastes just like pumpkin pie filling. I also topped mine with toasted almonds because they are freaking delicious.

Homemade Vanilla Chai Tea Mix 2

My apologies for my lapse in posting the past couple days. It’s been a whirlwind with the holidays and preparing to move. In fact, today marks the beginning of the big move to Ohio! One week to move everything into the new place, unpack, and get situated before my new job starts on January 12th. And do you know what the weather forecast for Columbus, OH is today? A steamy high of 18 degrees! What a stark contrast to my move to Memphis, TN where it was 115 degrees the day I moved there. Of course that was in August not January, but still interesting to note.

With the bitter cold, driving most of the day and unloading the truck, a warm cup of tea may be in order. Hopefully I will be able unpack some apparatus in order to warm water to do so. Conveniently I recently made this instant vanilla chai tea mix made from milk powder, non-dairy powdered creamer, sugar, instant tea, and spices. It smells as wonderful as it tastes and makes a great gift during these cold months.

Hummingbird Cake

If you enjoy carrot and banana cake you’ll love hummingbird cake. Banana, pineapple, and pecans make a moist fluffy cake topped with cream cheese frosting and even more pecans.

Hummingbird Cake

Over the weekend a certain family member of mine celebrated a birthday – my dad turned 70 on Sunday! We threw him party filled with all of his golf, softball, pickleball, shenanigan, etc. friends and had all kinds of things to eat such as my dad’s cook-off winning chili, corn spoon bread, sweet and sour meatballs, cocktail weenies, buffalo chicken dip, sausage cheese bread, and spinach dip. Of course no 70th birthday is complete without scads of desserts! We had potica, pineapple angel food cake, three different kinds of brownies (turtle, hot chocolate, peanut butter), and last but not least, hummingbird birthday cake!

The birthday boy requested this cake and even had a recipe saved for it. If you’ve never had hummingbird cake, it is like a fluffy version of banana bread with not only banana but also crushed pineapple, pecans, and cinnamon. It’s topped by the best kind of frosting on earth, cream cheese frosting, and then garnished with even more pecans. Basically it is a cake stuffed with some of my dad’s favorite things: fruit and nuts. After he quickly blew out the candles in one breath (and I sadly didn’t have my flash on and ended up with a blurry photo – below is staged), I made sure to slice him a piece with the most nuts on top!
