There’s a scene in the movie Garden State (good movie, terrific soundtrack; check it out) where Zach Braff and Natalie Portman are hanging out after Zach meets her in/gives her a ride home from the hospital. Natalie reveals her belief that all awkward moments can be banished by doing something completely unique; some motion, or sound, or anything, really, that no one has ever done before. Then she does something random with her arms, they both laugh, and everyone feels better. Now, I didn’t make this ice cream because I felt awkward, but it did make me feel a little more confident about my ice-cream-creation skills. Because it is unique, and I really hope maybe it hasn’t been done before. This recipe is not a Momofuku Milk Bar original (except for the cornflake crunch and cereal milk, which are recipes adapted from the book), but rather an ode to how much I am inspired by the flavor combinations contained in that precious tome. I worked hard on it, and I hope you love it as much as I do; so now, I give you Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Ice Cream. Continue reading →Pin It

Pssst! I’m on vacation. Most of you know that by now; certainly I’ve talked enough about it on Facebook for it to have driven you mad. I’ll be posting from my vacation soon enough, but this was a recipe I had half-written prior to leaving, and is just perfect for summer, so I had to give it to you. I sort of feel like I’m guest-posting for myself until I can get the photos and recipes rolling from down here, which will be very soon. Until then, I hope this tides you over.
I should tell you that this wasn’t even going to be a blog post. I was never going to blog about this particular banana cream pie. It started off as a request to be fulfilled for Father’s Day this year; nothing more. A simple pie Mr. Table hadn’t had in a while, which he wouldn’t mind if I made for him. Okay. But this is a good example of how – even in real life – I can’t seem to just leave well enough alone anymore and make things according to basic recipes. I don’t do well with others telling me what to do, and maybe this is how lately it manifests itself; Random Acts of Pie Toasting for no reason other than because I can. And so I did; today, I give you what I (affectionately) call my Low-Rent Banana Cream Pie. Continue reading →Pin It
