One. Hun. Dred.
That’s a lot of recipes from one cookbook.
I know we are celebrating 100 with Peaches Melba – which I made and posted about here and it’s totally lovely, but a celebration of this magnitude seems to cry out for cake and ice cream, no?

Raspberry Corn Ice Cream
Adapted from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home
1 12-oz bag frozen raspberries
1 cup sugar
2 ears sweet corned, kernels removed & milk juiced from cob
2 cups whole milk
4 tsp cornstarch
3 Tbs cream cheese, room temperature
¼ tsp fine-grained sea salt
1 ¼ cups heavy cream
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbs light corn syrup
Pour a cup of the base into the bottom of a freezer safe container. Spread a layer of raspberry sauce. Continue layering ice cream base and raspberry sauce until both are gone (making sure to finish with a layer of ice cream). Press parchment on the top of ice cream and seal container. Place container in ice cream and freeze for another couple of hours.

Runner Girl Update: Thank you to everyone for your kind words and e-mails re: the first week of college. Yes, she does have my mail key (she found it in her wallet) - we will try to retrieve that in the next couple of days. My poor car is still in the shop; I hope to have it back by this weekend. Runner Girl had a few hiccups at first - the first full day was a little traumatic, but I think we have worked through all the major issues and she is getting her bearings. The Roommate arrives Friday - which will open a whole new chapter. She is practicing three times a day right now and her first race is next Saturday (Yes, I plan on being there...). Classes start next week. Mom (me) is doing fine. There were a few rough moments, but it is getting easier. The Dude is having a harder time, I think. Face Time is very helpful. I am doing 1/3 as much laundry and there seems to be more hot water. The Karate Kid is thoroughly enjoying her new status as the "only child".
