Creamy Spring Soup

Creamy Spring Soup

It’s not spring yet, but spring is coming. In just 5 days! It’s still so cold that it feels like 5 years. I’m so tired of the wind. I feel cold for a long time after I come inside, which is why I made this […]

Three Ingredient Breakfast Bake

Three Ingredient Breakfast Bake

1/3 of the ingredients are from the freezer. If you don’t have the other 2/3, I think you’re beyond help. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! The good news is, it’s entirely sugar free. It’s also high in protein. We won’t talk about the […]

Berry Sandwich Smoothie

Berry Sandwich Smoothie

I like recipes that make you think. Or mildly alarm you. Now see, when I cleaned out the freezer, which started this whole shebang, I made a shelf in the door just for ice cream sandwiches. And I was planning to make this smoothie with frozen yogurt, to keep up some pretense of health (if the president can have pretend he won the election fairly, I can pretend this is healthy), but when I went to open the freezer, the ice cream sandwiches, they spoke to me. And I knew what I had to do. You’ll know, too (If this whole food blogger thing doesn’t work out, I can always write a horror movie about talking food).

 

INGREDIENTS

8 oz mixed frozen berries

2 ice cream sandwiches

⅔ cup milk

Start by throwing the berries into a blender, and then spending 10 minutes trying to puree them.

Then see sense, and pour the milk in. Things should move along a lot quicker then. You don’t have to use mixed berries for this, by the way- use any kind of berry that strikes your fancy. A lingonberry smoothie would be good.

Once the berries are pureed,

, unwrap the ice cream sandwiches, and slice the cookies off. You could, of course, just peel the cookies off, but that wouldn’t be as much fun as using a fish knife to “fillet” the ice cream sandwiches.

Throw the ice cream in, one at a time, and blend it until it’s nice and creamy.

Serve it with a cookie on top!

Meatball-Ravioli Soup

Meatball-Ravioli Soup

This soup is just plain ornery. You want soup? You want a light, refreshing soup? You think soup is broth-y and elegant? This soup isn’t. This soup is glorified tomato sauce. This soup has meatballs. This soup has ravioli. Ravioli! Make this soup. And you […]

Freezer Week

Freezer Week

I cleaned out the freezer recently, and painstakingly organized it. It had all the usual suspects- frozen fruit and vegetables, pie crust and puff pastry, and a bunch of frozen meat. So I’m doing freezer week! A whole week of meals made out of stuff […]
