Pretty Cool Ice Cream in Chicago has created a collection of Thanksgiving specials, with a few new flavors that we’re pretty sure no one screamed for, but might.

Six seasonal flavors include four ice cream bars inspired by Thanksgiving sides: Green Bean Casserole, Cornbread Stuffing, Sweet Potato Marshmallow and Pumpkin Pie. You’ll also find a baked brie and cranberry ice cream sandwich and a vegan pint ambrosia salad.

The Green Bean Casserole Bar starts with porcini ice cream on a stick, which is dipped in cheesy white chocolate, making it a magical shell. Then it all ends with crispy onion strips and, yes, green beans.

“If it had been disgusting, we wouldn’t have put it on the menu,” chef Dana Salls Cree wrote via email. “But the porcini ice cream is so good, the shell has a hint of cheddar, the beans are crispy and nutty, and the onions are surprising.”

We have Salls Cree and Pretty Cool Pastry Chef Alana Gidycz to thank, or blame, for all the creative new flavors.

This isn’t the first time they’ve mixed sweet with salty. Their Chicago Mix bar, inspired by the iconic Garrett Mix with cheese and caramel corn, dips salted caramel ice cream into a speckled shell of cheese popcorn. They also make a whole bagel bar in conjunction with Steingold’s Delicatessen, so they knew onion could be an acceptable, albeit unconventional, ingredient in ice cream.

Everyone who’s tried the green bean casserole has finished it, Salls Cree said, “even if their brains are trying to figure out what to do with the crispy onions.”

Porcini ice cream has a remarkable pedigree.

“It was part of a Mud Pie dessert at Blackbird, and we brought earthy elements to tie into the title,” the chef wrote. She left the band behind the pioneering restaurant to open Pretty Cool with Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits owner Michael Ciapciak in 2018. Blackbird closed due to the pandemic in 2020.

Cornbread Stuffing takes sweet corn ice cream dipped in a shell of roasted corn and chocolate, then finishes it with a dusting of herb corn crumble. It has the tastiest elements of any Thanksgiving side bar with sage, parsley, bay leaves and pepper, but somehow trumped the green bean casserole, Salls said. Create.

Baked brie ice cream, with a cranberry swirl, is sandwiched between two almond and rosemary cookies, dipped in a shell of browned butter and finished with a cookie crumble.

Traditional ice cream lovers might find some solace in the Sweet Potato Marshmallow Bar, featuring sweet potato ice cream dipped in a brown sugar shell and topped with toasted pecans and mini marshmallows. These mini marshmallows also top Pretty Cool’s s’mores bar.

Pop Pumpkin Icicle Pie marks the return of an annual seasonal collaboration with Bang Bang. It includes pumpkin pie ice cream, dipped in what has become a magic cinnamon graham cracker shell.

To eat.  Look.  Do.

To eat. Look. Do.

Weekly

What to eat. What to watch. What you need to live your best life…now.

A new vegan Ambrosia salad flavor (like in a fruit salad, not the lettuce kind) features pineapple coconut ice cream swirled with marshmallows, pecans, maraschino cherries, d candied orange peel and flaked coconut.

You’ll find the Green Bean Casserole, Cornbread Stuffing, and Sweet Potato Casserole over Thanksgiving weekend or until they sell out. The Pumpkin Pie Bar and Baked Brie Ice Cream Sandwich will be available until the end of December.

Pretty Cool is working on an ice-cold version of a port cheese ball, “round and rolled in nuts like the real deal,” Salls Cree said.

Look for the Ice Cream Cheese Ball to drop off the first week of December.

Coffee flights and other delicacies in the Swedesboro area https://fallensouffle.com/coffee-flights-and-other-delicacies-in-the-swedesboro-area/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 03:49:30 +0000 https://fallensouffle.com/coffee-flights-and-other-delicacies-in-the-swedesboro-area/ I’ve heard that there are two types of coffee drinkers: some people drink coffee to wake up and some people wake up to drink coffee.

I’ve heard that there are two types of coffee drinkers: some people drink coffee to wake up and some people wake up to drink coffee. If true, I certainly fall into the latter category!

Related: When I first heard about a cute cafe called Hens & Honey offering seasonal coffee flights, I knew I’d eventually check it out for myself.

Hens & Honey is a specialty coffee shop in Swedesboro. Being from the Jersey Shore area, I don’t go down to the southwest corner of the state very often. I paired my trip with an errand (picking up 50 pounds of frozen blueberries, story for another day!), a coveted coffee robbery, and some small town shopping before heading home.

GPS recalculation

If, like me, you are unfamiliar with Swedesboro, your GPS may take you to the Hens & Honey Boutique instead of the cafe. But do not worry. The cafe is only a mile and a half up the road. And while you’re there, the boutique is a great place to browse and shop for vintage-inspired clothing and accessories. Definitely worth the detour!

Hens & Honey Shop

Once I arrived at my initial destination, I was immediately charmed by the cute and quirky decor of Hens & Honey Shoppe. With cardboard cutouts of pop culture idols, a floor-to-ceiling floral mural covering one wall, and other special touches to set the mood, I realized this place was an Instagrammer’s paradise.

Hens & Honey also offers an assortment of seasonal decorations, natural soaps, candles and body products made by shop owner Valarie. Amazingly, the soybean oil and nut tree oils that are used in these products are all grown on his family farm. And on that note, the shop includes an olive oil tasting bar.

Caffeine for days

Coffee thefts take time to make: each one is made to order. With that in mind, they are available on a first-come, first-served basis, as they sell out on weekends. And the flavors of the flight change with the seasons. I chose the fall coffee flight. It was not only delicious, but it was a work of art!

The coffees are presented on a wooden board and each is labeled. The cafe names are just as cute as the shop itself. My flight included mini cups of Harvest Moon, Jack-o-lantern, Pecan Lane and a flannel jacket. Each coffee is topped with mounds of whipped cream and a delicious array of sprinkles and sprinkles.

The menu on the board changes often. Coffee flights can also be made from a blend of flavors. Rumor has it that there will soon be “ready to go” winter and holiday-themed drinks. If you want a small bite or something more substantial, Hens & Honey also offers pastries, bagels and soups.

Shopping in the main street

After my coffee experience, I was fully caffeinated and ready to shop. I took a quick drive up Mullica Hill which has a big main street full of shops. In fact, that’s everything I love about a small town shopping spree, all in one place.

I scoured specialty kitchen stores, a cheese shop, and a vintage-inspired decor spot. Then I moved on to antiques, clothing boutiques and a nifty florist. But the real neighborhood surprise was Brew x Bread, a boutique cafe-bakery-wine bar combo.

If you’re looking to buy unique gifts in a festive atmosphere while supporting small businesses, this is the place to do some holiday shopping.

Best Sandwich in South Jersey

So far, my day has included caffeine, sugar, and shopping. At this point, it was time for lunch. My next task: grab a bite to eat at the place voted as having the best sandwich by South Jersey Magazine: David & Sons 322 Butcher and BBQ.

David & Sons 322 Butcher Shop & BBQ has locations in Mullica Hill and Swedesboro. The excursion that day took me to the Mullica Hill location. Upon entering, I was greeted by the tantalizing smells of smoked meat and barbecue, but ordered the sandwich I came for: the crispy shrimp po’ boy!

This famous local sandwich is served on a 12 inch roll. It’s filled with fried shrimp, tangy coleslaw, tomatoes, and caramelized onions. He hit the spot. I know I will be back to try BBQ choices in the near future.

And donuts too!

David & Sons also sells cookies, huge cinnamon rolls and donuts, which come in an assortment of off-the-beaten-path varieties. With flavors such as s’mores, Oreo, peanut butter cup, pumpkin cheesecake, burnt banana, etc., I had some tough decisions to make.

I chose the seasonal pumpkin cheesecake donut. I took my treat home to enjoy after the long drive. Looking forward to my next visit to this area!

Lois Rycx shows Greg how to make Thanksgiving treats worth gobbling up!

Oreo Turkeys

Any type of double sandwich cookie will do. The double fabric gives way to “candy corn feathers” or slender almond feathers”.

Secure the candy corn by dipping the tip in melted white chocolate and placing it between the wafers. Set aside to let harden.

TO HACK!!! If your candy corn is broken with a white tip…use that for the feather part. It will be stuck and no one will be able to see it. Or you can just eat the imperfect ones!

Using the same melted white chocolate (or you can use milk chocolate), attach candy corn for the nose and candy eyes.

Another version for the turkey body is a mini Reeses cup in the bottom of the sandwich cookie with a scoop of malt or caramel on it for the face. The nose is a mini butterscotch nugget and the eyes are the same candy eyes and two candy corn “turkey wings”.

pilgrim hats

I used a fudge stripe cookie. I attached the marshmallow to it with melted chocolate.

Once set, I dipped the whole biscuit in chocolate. Let set up.

For the “curl” I put some chocolate in a square and used golden sanding sugar crystals. So. Pilgrim’s hat!

Sweet corn husk

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread graham crackers on the bottom. Pour in the melted chocolate…I used white and black and swirled it with an offset spatula. Decorate immediately with the candies of your choice. I used candy corn, candy pumpkins, and Reese’s Chunks.

Let firm up completely. Next, the fun part! You take a meat tenderizer mallet and break it into pieces!

Brownie Pops

Make fudge brownies from a mix. Let cool completely.

Mix in a packet of cream cheese at room temperature. Return to refrigerator for an hour or more to chill.

Form balls and stick cake pops into the ball and place them on sheets lined with parchment paper and freeze for over two hours.

Dip in melted chocolate and decorate.

Dessert should never be an afterthought, but there’s no shame in outsourcing that last dish on Thanksgiving. Whether you’re tasked with bringing treats to a Friendsgiving or preparing to throw the whole Thanksgiving party yourself, having a vegan pie or plant-based treat ready to go will drastically reduce your stress day. , will free up space in the oven and decrease the chance of something going wrong (even the best bakers burn cookies once in a while, and there’s always a chance that a pumpkin pie won’t be quite taken). From thick, gooey plant-based pecan pie to an impressive Piecaken, consider these delicious and deliverable desserts a sweet side dish to a flawless vegan Thanksgiving feast.

Vegan Dessert Ideas for Thanksgiving

The classic quintet of pies that traditionally complete any Thanksgiving meal – apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, pecan and pumpkin – are rarely vegan by default. Unless, of course, you’re using a vegan recipe or miraculously grew up in a plant-based household. Pumpkin, sweet potato, and pecan typically require eggs in the filling for structural integrity. While apple pie is often egg-free (but always beware of an egg-brushed top crust), dairy-based buttery crusts are all too common. There are a few exceptions with apple pie. Some recipes call for pure shortening instead of butter. When you come across this kind of apple pie, order two slices!

Food Network

Despite the heavy use of eggs and dairy in these iconic holiday pies, vegan versions do exist. Countless recipes online and a solid handful of store-bought fresh and frozen options offer plant-based solutions to the “what’s for dessert” question at Thanksgiving.

Whole Foods starts producing its vegan pumpkin and apple pies this time of year, and many animal-free options can be found in the freezer section (try Raised Gluten-Free or Wholly Wholesome). In a pinch, frozen fruit pies from Marie Calendar, Sarah Lee and Claim Jumper are also vegan.

I always leave behind some of everything I make for my photographer, Emma, ​​who makes these recipes for Sundays.

After tasting these particular cookies, she called me to tell me that she had never tasted a better cookie in her life. Need I say more?

  • First prepare the caramel. Pour the caster sugar into a larger saucepan than you think you’ll need (the mixture will bubble towards the end!). Make sure the pan is perfectly clean and dry, otherwise your caramel will seize.

  • Place over medium heat and melt, stirring occasionally. Keep an eye on the mixture all the time as it is very easy to burn.

  • As soon as the mixture takes on a dark amber color, incorporate the softened butter. Once incorporated, remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the cream. Finally mix in the sea salt. If the caramel has lumps, you can pass it through a heat-resistant sieve.

  • Refrigerate for the caramel to cool and thicken.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the cookie dough. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and icing sugar until pale and fluffy.

  • Add the flour, salt, vanilla seeds and rose water and mix, being careful not to over mix. Mix just enough to form a paste. It should be soft, but not sticky.

  • Spread a length of parchment paper on the bench and place the cookie dough on it. Place another length of paper over the dough, then roll it out with a rolling pin until 1/2 cm thick. Try making a square or a rectangle.

  • Place the cookie dough sheet on a baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C rotating heat. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.

  • Unwrap the cooled dough and place it on a cutting board. Using a 6cm round cookie cutter, cut out as many circles as possible and place them on the lined baking sheet.

  • Bake for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

  • Let the cookies cool and firm on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

  • Once the cookies have cooled, pipe or use the back of a spoon to spread some caramel in the center of one cookie and press another top to form a sandwich, press lightly and let the caramel spread around the edges. Finally, dust each sandwich with icing sugar and sprinkle with a few dried rose petals if desired.

  • Refrigerate in an airtight container or cookie jar for up to a week.

    There are few things as good as taking a bite of one of your favorite comfort foods. These are the foods that make you feel warm, full, homesick, and happy. But sometimes these often high-carb comfort foods don’t always fit some diets. Plus, finding keto-friendly comfort food recipes, in particular, can sometimes be especially difficult.

    The keto diet is a very specific diet that consists of eating foods that contain no or very little carbohydrates, as well as foods that are high in fat. This helps the body stay in ketosis, in which your body does not consume enough carbohydrates during the day to burn energy, so it burns fat instead.

    Followers of the keto diet tend to avoid foods high in sugar or grain-based foods. However, this can limit your ability to enjoy many classic comfort foods.

    Luckily, there are always workarounds to help make a meal keto-friendly. Don’t worry about making a meal you’ll thoroughly enjoy while sticking to your diet. Try any of these 13 keto comfort food recipes and you’ll find it’s as easy as a keto-friendly pie.

    FOLEY (WJON News) – Work continues to transform a former Chinese restaurant into a salon and spa.

    The Blue Door Lounge in Foley is planning a soft opening in mid-November. The lounge is being renovated and expanded into the former restaurant next door to add additional services not offered in the area.

    The co-owners: Rachel Faber, Jen Rice and Heather Zirbes have been working together for a few years, Zirbes operating a medical spa room in the salon with stylists Faber and Rice. This summer, the opportunity arose to expand the salon, and with it, the salon and spa treatments on offer.

    Pedicures, manicures and intravenous hydration will be offered, and the group is looking to add a massage therapist and esthetician to bring more services to the salon.

    Rice says her customers are excited about the additions.

    15% of our clientele is actually from Foley. Thus, 85% of our customers go to Foley to have their hair done. I already have clients who talk about multitasking and not having to go to different places to do things.

    The new services will be offered in a single space. The former Chinese restaurant is being transformed into a park-like park with the help of the owners, their spouses and community friends. Pedicures are provided on porch swings and massages in pergola-covered rooms.

    The salon is hiring – with a focus on massage therapists, nail technicians and stylists.
