That means pie is more of a special-occasion dessert—unless someone’s made it for me.

Since I often feel that ice cream makers don’t add quite as many treats as I’d like, I’ve been known to take it upon myself to get the right ratio at home. I just buy some plain light ice cream, let it soften up for a few minutes, then stir in my own combination of nuts, fruit, chocolate or whatever suits my fancy that day.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/easy_ways_to_jazz_up_plain_jane_ice_cream#comments Food Blog Carolyn Malcoun Dessert Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 06 Aug 2014 13:41:33 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 283623 at http://www.eatingwell.com Sensational Do-at-Home Sangria http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/sensational_do_at_home_sangria <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/sensational_do_at_home_sangria" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/23484_Ardito_310.jpg" alt="Sensational Do-at-Home Sangria Blog Post" title="Sensational Do-at-Home Sangria Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>While I always have a decent selection of craft beers and a few bottles of wine in my fridge for the times when friends drop by for an impromptu summertime shindig, I’ve decided to make this The Summer of Sangria. </p> <p><strong>Don't Miss:</strong> <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/5_party_wines_for_10_or_less">5 Summer Party Wines for $10 or Less</a> </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/sensational_do_at_home_sangria#comments Food Blog Carolyn Malcoun Entertaining Holidays Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 07 Jul 2014 18:12:38 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 283414 at http://www.eatingwell.com Delicious Summer Dinners on a Budget http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/delicious_summer_dinners_on_a_budget <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/delicious_summer_dinners_on_a_budget" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/budget blog.jpg" alt="Delicious Summer Dinners on a Budget Blog Post" title="Delicious Summer Dinners on a Budget Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>I <em>love</em> summer.

She thought it was a perfectly acceptable breakfast, mushy spots and all.</p> <p>Many people (like my husband) don’t have time for overripe bananas.

Plus, as Joyce Hendley reported in a recent issue of EatingWell Magazine, studies show if you drink tea regularly, you may reduce your risk of Alzheimer's and diabetes, plus have healthier teeth and gums and stronger bones. How? Tea is rich in antioxidants called flavonoids, which are most potent when tea is freshly brewed. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/5_expert_tips_to_make_the_best_healthiest_iced_tea#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Carolyn Malcoun Recipes & Menus - Tea Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Tue, 28 Jun 2011 15:45:39 +0000 Penelope Wall 17438 at http://www.eatingwell.com How to pick the 5 best ripe summer fruit http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_pick_the_5_best_ripe_summer_fruit <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_pick_the_5_best_ripe_summer_fruit" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/blueberries_container_mj11_310.jpg" alt="How to pick the 5 best ripe summer fruit Blog Post" title="How to pick the 5 best ripe summer fruit Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_pick_the_5_best_ripe_summer_fruit#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Carolyn Malcoun Fri, 24 Jun 2011 15:48:49 +0000 Penelope Wall 17410 at http://www.eatingwell.com The healthiest and worst ice cream picks http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/the_healthiest_and_worst_ice_cream_picks <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/the_healthiest_and_worst_ice_cream_picks" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/ice_cream_310_0.jpg" alt="The healthiest and worst ice cream picks Blog Post" title="The healthiest and worst ice cream picks Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/the_healthiest_and_worst_ice_cream_picks#comments Health Blog Carolyn Malcoun Mon, 20 Jun 2011 16:05:05 +0000 Penelope Wall 17399 at http://www.eatingwell.com What’s the best pan to cook with? http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/what_s_the_best_pan_to_cook_with <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/what_s_the_best_pan_to_cook_with" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/pans_stainless_310.jpg" alt="What’s the best pan to cook with?
