City Living…. West Palm Beach Waterfront

I recently moved back to the city.  After moving to the suburbs for the past eight years, I have come back to the more active city.

My condo is feeling like home again and I have reconnected with neighbors I have not seen in the last few years.

While the Palm Beaches are not a huge metropolitan area, and my move to the suburbs was only six miles away, the differences are profound.

I am enjoying getting  acquainted with the City of West Palm Beach again.  I didn’t come down much after I moved north and a lot has changed.

Sunday, while on a walk along the Waterfront Park, the beauty captured my imagination.

It’s nice to be a city dweller again.

What’s Cooking…… Homemade Cherry Ice Cream

Ok, not really cooking, but “What’s Frozen” just doesn’t sound right for a headline.

For the 4th of July I was invited to a cook-out at my friend Winehooch and her husband Dan’s home.  Fourth of July at the Hooch House is always fun with swimming, eating, drinking and fireworks over the canal from the nearby country club.

My friends know my strengths, so when I am invited over my dish is usually going to be an appetizer of dessert.

Since it was the 4th of July I decided to do both.

The appetizer I chose was an old stand-by Pigs In A Blanket.

For dessert I chose Cherry Ice Cream.  I make good ice cream, some people are good at BBQ, others are great at pie, I am darn good at ice cream.

I have a simple recipe, a good churn and am fearless when it comes to putting together flavors.  I’ve done peppermint, peach, blueberry, snickers, etc etc etc.

Here it is my simple homemade ice cream recipe….
