A super tasty homemade ice cream with just the right amount of chocolate candy goodness. Perfect for Easter and all other Spring Celebrations!

Homemade Ice Cream

You’ll need an ice cream maker for this one – and I have been very happy with using the Ice Cream Maker attachment for our Stand Mixer for all of the ice cream we make here, and I feel pretty good about recommending it to you if you’re in the market.  Keep your ice cream maker stored in the freezer if you have the space – otherwise, be sure to freeze it before using it to make ice cream.

For this recipe, I used a cup and a half of those wonderful little pastel coloured M&M candies you see all over the stores this time of year – and it has turned out so well!  A super tasty vanilla ice cream with just the right amount of chocolate candy goodness.
Homemade Ice Cream made with Easter Candy -

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups 10% cream
  • 8 egg yolks ( save the whites for Angel Food Cake!)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups 35% cream
  • 4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups M&M candies – we used the pastel coloured Easter variety

Directions

  1. Cook the 10% cream on the stove top until it’s hot.  Not boiling, but hot.
  2. Whip the yolks and sugar until blended, and gradually stir in the hot 10% cream, and continue to mix until blended.
  3. Transfer the yolk mixture back to a medium sauce pan, and again cook until hot.  Cook until it is steaming, and small bubbles start to form, but do not boil.  Stir continuously and prevent scorching.
  4. Add in the 35% cream, the vanilla extract and the salt, and chill for 8 hours ( or overnight)
  5. Following the directions on your ice cream maker, add your ice cream to the ice cream maker and let mix for about 18 minutes – add the M&M candies and mix 2 minutes longer.  
  6. Serve and enjoy, and be sure to freeze the remaining ice cream!

Reasons to love Rhubarb

Rhubarb has a taste that is quite unique. It is perfect for muffins, breads and cakes, as it is not too sweet.  You will find that a lot of recipes using rhubarb also add strawberries.  They go quite well together!

Besides these amazing rhubarb recipes, Rhubarb is a hardy, perennial vegetable, that requires very little care and maintenance.  Try to cut it before it goes to seed, and don’t cut the really small pieces when you do harvest. 

Even in the Northern Ontario climates, you can get at least two, and often three harvests per year.  That is usually enough to stock a freezer. Rhubarb freezes well, it also cans well.  You can mix it with sugar and can it, and use it later on in crumbles, crisps and my favourite cobbler recipe.

Homemade Angel Food Cake

Homemade Angel Food Cake from scratch - healthy and delicious and not nearly as hard as you might think!

Homemade Angel Food Cake is one of my most favourite things to eat ever in the history of ever!  I have no issue with the store bought varieties at all, and sometimes you can pick them up quite cheap.  When you come across a great deal, go for it!  Being a do it myself-er however sort of dictates that I must make my own from scratch from time to time, and lemme tell ya, it’s not nearly as scary as it sounds!

Homemade Angel Food Cake from scratch - healthy and delicious and not nearly as hard as you might think!

Take the Make it Yourself Plunge

Making something delicious from scratch is quintessentially satisfying!  Plus, making things yourself from scratch can often save you money, which is always good.  

 

An electric mixer is necessary.  I have this KitchenAid Stand Mixer and I love love love it!

Homemade Angel Food Cake

So this recipe uses a lot of eggs.  Even if you buy a mix in a box you’ll still have to use a lot of eggs, and you’ll still have to mix like crazy – so you might as well just make your own from scratch.  

If you happen to have laying hens, this is a great way to use up eggs.  You need from 10 to 12 egg whites for the batter, and you can save the yolks to make homemade puddings, custards and creme brulées ( how can you possibly go wrong with a dessert where you get to use a torch, right?)

You will recall from my Chocolate Meringue Hearts and Lemon Meringue Drops  the trick to any meringue is to make sure it is beat well.  Very well.  Stiff and glossy well.  Do not under-beat or you will be sadly disappointed.  Angel food cake is essentially meringue with some flour and sugar folded in, and it takes a bit of time and elbow grease, it is soooo worth it.

Homemade Applesauce

Homemade Apple Sauce Recipe for a quick and easy and healthy totally doable snack

Applesauce is not only one of the easiest snacks to make yourself from scratch, it is also one of the cheapest.  It’s super easy because you only need two ingredients, and I’ve got a ratio I’m going to tell you about so making homemade applesauce will quickly become second nature to you. First though, let’s talk about the cheap and eco-friendly part. 

(This post contains affiliate links for your convenience)

Homemade Apple Sauce Recipe for a quick and easy and healthy totally doable snack

Budget & World Friendly  

Making homemade applesauce is easy on your wallet. Making any foods yourself is usually cheaper on account of the packaging you’re not paying for ( I am really really not good at packaging – you can totally tell who has opened the cereal box in our house ) plus you’re using up ingredients  you already have.  Which leads me to next great thing about homemade applesauce. Food waste in Canada and the US is at a ridiculous rate of like 40% .  I think we can all think of a time when we bought a whole lot of food, namely fresh fruits and veggies, only to toss them out a few days later.  I’ve done it, you likely have too.  Instead of condemning ourselves as bad citizens – go check out your crisper drawer in your fridge, and collect all of the fruit that maybe isn’t going to be quite so amazing if you bit into it straight away.  Chances are you have some apples in there, that are maybe a wee bit bruised… or are just not at their prime.  Don’t throw them out, they are perfect for applesauce.  

Easy Homemade Applesauce

Remember, I said I was going to share with you a handy little ratio.  One thing to remember, and ta-da! You’re all making homemade applesauce and looking to customize.  This recipe is so incredibly easy, I’m not even going to make a printable card for it – all you need is this one ratio.  Feel free to bookmark the page of course, but I have confidence, you won’t need to.

Homemade Apple Sauce Recipe for a quick and easy and healthy totally doable snack

The ratio

All you need to remember in order to make homemade applesauce is that for every apple you use, you want to also use 1 tbsp. of water. 

Materials:

Directions:

  1. Peel and core apples
  2. Cut apples into chunks and put in a saucepan, add 1 tbsp. water for every apple you use
  3. Cover with a lid and bring gently to a boil, checking often.
  4. When apple pieces can easily be pierced with a fork, mash them.
  5. Serve warm, or cool, and garnish or customize with your favourite add ins ( see some ideas below)

Homemade Apple Sauce Recipe for a quick and easy and healthy totally doable snack

Garnish / Customizing Options

  • add 1/4 tsp sugar for every apple for a sweetened applesauce
  • dried cranberries
  • dried raisins
  • nuts
  • other fruit and berry purees

Lemon Meringue Drops

Light and Lemony Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Meringue Drop Recipe

Light and Lemony Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Meringue Drops.  A nice summery dessert, that is impressive, but totally easy to make.

(This post may contain an affiliate link or two for your convenience)

Light and Lemony Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Meringue Drop Recipe

I love meringue.  Let there be no doubting me here.  It’s often the perfect sweet, bot not too sweet treat, and the melt in your mouth texture is. to. die. for.

Nothing beats the meringue on a homemade lemon pie, that’s for sure – but these lemony meringue drops are also really, really good.  Oh, and did I mention, crazy easy?  

Making Meringue

To make a good meringue, you can not under beat it.  An electric mixer really is the best option, I am so in love with my KitchenAid Stand Mixer if you’re in the market for one.  I have honestly never tried making meringue with a Rotary Egg Beater so I can’t tell you if it would work or not – but I have my doubts.  The key to good meringue is not under beating it, I think a hand beater would fall short.

Lemon Meringue Drops

If you don’t have a Piping Bag and Large Star Decorating Tip, and they are simply not in your budget, cutting the corner from a plastic bag is completely 100% acceptable.

Homemade Apple Pie

Homemade Apple Pie Recipe perfect any of time of year, super simple to make for every day dessert, and delightful enough to serve on special occassions

It’s pretty hard to go wrong with Apple Pie, and there is a reason for the expression easy as pie – because it is so, so easy to make.  Even the flaky crust.  

(For your convenience this post may contain an affiliate link or two)

Homemade Apple Pie Recipe perfect any of time of year, super simple to make for every day dessert, and delightful enough to serve on special occassions

The Secret to a Great Pie

A great fruit pie consists of fruit, sugar and a great crust.  Now seriously, don’t be scared by the crust.  A lot of people balk at the thought of making a great crust, I did too.  However, as you can see from the photo above, I have totally mended my ways, and have learned how to make a really great crust. You can too.  All you need is the right tool for the job.

An apple pie is perhaps the simplest of fruit pies, and there’s not much to them, that may be perhaps why the crust is so important when you’re enjoying a homemade apple pie.  

“I May Be Bruised, but I Still Taste Sweet”

I can’t help myself but digress here a wee bit.  Pretty much every time I sit down to write about some fantabulous thing to share with you all, I nearly always have a song in my head that goes along with whatever I’m writing.  I don’t think it is possible for me to even consider anything appl-y without breaking into Bad Apple from Over 60 Minutes With David Wilcox.  Does this happen to you?  
 

So about them Apples

When choosing apples for an apple pie, it makes for easier work if you choose larger apples.  A lot of people prefer a tart apple, for their homemade apple pies, but the real trick is choosing apples that aren’t too juicy.  The really juicy apples with leave you with a soppy mess on your bottom crust, and no amount of perfect flakiness skills will save you then.

Typically, the best apples for the job are courtland, jonagold and honeycrisp.  McIntosh apples will do in a pinch as well.  

Homemade Apple Pie Recipe perfect any of time of year, super simple to make for every day dessert, and delightful enough to serve on special occassions

Crust with the Perfect Flakiness

As I mentioned earlier, the secret to the crust, is all about having right tool for the job.  Make sure you have a Pastry Knife / Blender, and you’re good to go.  Yep, that’s it. There is no real secret recipe, you can have tremendous success if you follow the recipe on the box of lard.  Fear not however, I will share with you my favourite pie crust recipe that I have written down in an old faded book, that to tell you the honest to goodness truth I have no idea where it came from, but I’m going to take a guess that it was my Grandmother’s.

  2. 6 cups of peeled, sliced apples
  3. 3/4 cups brown sugar
  4. 1 tsp. cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Prepare bottom pie shell
  3. Core and peel apples, and slice them until you have six cups

Notes
  1. After your top crust is in place, mix equal parts milk and white sugar, and apply to pie with pastry brush;
  2. Check on your pie in while baking, and if the crust is getting too brown, place a sheet of foil overtop to keep from burning the crust

  4. 2 tbsp. cold water
Instructions
  1. Mix flour and salt
  2. Cut in lard with a pastry knife / blender
  3. Gently work in water with your hands
Notes
  1. I don't double this recipe for two shells. I make a separate ball of pastry dough per shell;
  2. Fruit pies should have a vented top, so use a lattice top, or cut a few slats into the top - I use an apple shaped cookie cutter, for an extra special touch
