    Snow Ice Cream Recipe (or Snow Frappuccino!)

  • Holy Chocomole!

    Who doesn’t love some chocolate pudding every now and then?  But, every time I read the labels on the pudding packs at the store, I cringe.  That’s why I was intrigued by Katie Kimball’s idea at Kitchen Stewardship called Chocomole. You are not going to believe this, but it’s true.
