Lemon-Buttermilk Sherbet

Auntie Kare’s Lemon-Buttermilk Sherbet
Amazingly simple and incredibly good. When Auntie Karey was raising her children in Montreal, she gleaned this amazing recipe from the huge collection of Bon Appetit magazines her friend Terri Tustain had given her. The first time we all tasted it was when she, Rochelle and Dwight made it and brought it
to an Easter Sunday dinner with a cake decorated like a lamb. Yum.

4 C buttermilk, or plain kefir (one quart container)
2 C sugar, scant
½ C lemon juice, fresh squeezed (before juicing, remove zest first with microplane or small grater)
2 TBL lemon zest (organic when using zest)

1.     Pre-freeze the bowl of your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
2.     In a large mixing bowl stir all ingredients until sugar is dissolved.
3.     Refrigerate until chilled.  We’ve made it without chilling and it still turns out. It just takes longer.
4.     Whisk the mix again and churn in your ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions.  This usually takes 20-30 minutes. While sherbet is freezing, chill a glass storage container in the freezer. 
5.     Once sherbet is done, transfer to chilled container and freeze until ready to serve.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Challa Bread

Challa Bread *******  Makes 2 loaves My neighbor, Bonnie, grew up with a Jewish friend and learned to love their family traditions, songs and the Hebrew language. Every Sunday she taught our Mormon young women a lot about the Hebrew alphabet and about many Jewish traditions (I was a teacher in Young Women so I got to hear her lessons). Even though she didn't talk about food, her lessons gave me the nudge to learn how to make something I'd always wanted to try . . . challa bread.  Check out h ow to braid a six-strand challa .

Pumpkin Pie-Coconut Cream Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Makes 1 quart I spy some dietary restrictions in my future. The doctor’s verdict will be in within a month, so I was hoping that some of the few remaining approved edibles (including coconut) could turn out something muy bueno. They did. This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.  Modified from the nourishing gourmet
