Ok so….I was supposed to drive my brother to a party at the club when…. BAM! I completely smashed into my neighbors brand new corvette! After hysterically running back into the house crying and vowing never to drive again, my dad demonstrated extreme grace and encouragement and told me to get back out there and go to the party.  I now know he really didn’t want to lose me as a dedicated chauffeur, but he taught me a huge lesson about getting out there again, and to learn from my mistakes.
As Camp C.H.E.F. is in full swing in Richmond, Midlothian, Cape Girardeau, and in cities and towns across the country, I know that cooking is a skill rich in opportunities to learn and make mistakes while mastering a recipe.  Encouragement is the key component.  Have fun recreating the Camp C.H.E.F. recipes at home, perfect or not, we are proud of you for getting out there!
Healthfully Yours – Chef Ann

Cooking Tip of the Day: Heart Healthy Smoothie Tips

Smoothies can pack a big nutritional punch but be sure to skip the high fructose juices. Throw a banana (you can keep them in the freezer for weeks) into your blender along with frozen berries, kiwi, apples, grapes or whatever fruit is around. Add regular water, tea, coconut water or other juice and if you’d like fat-free or low-fat yogurt. You can get 4–5 servings of fruit in one glass of yummy shake.  Try adding baby greens to your smoothie for a dose of veggies too. Try getting your loved one to sip on a smoothie. It’s easy, cool, refreshing and healthy.

Homemade Ice Cream

Prep Time: about 30 minutes Cooking Time: about 30 minutes Prep Time: 1 hour
  • 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise and scraped
  • 2 cups milk, chilled
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar, plus 2 T
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • Equipment: knives, measuring spoons, cups, bowl, saucepan, electric mixer
  • Step 1 In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine vanilla beans and scrapings with the milk. Bring to a gentle boil. Remover from heat and let steep, covered, for 30 minutes
  • Step 2 Prepare an ice bath; set aside. In a bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg yolks and sugar on medium high speed until thick and pale, about 4 minutes.
  • Step 3 Place milk mixture over medium-high heat; bring to just a simmer. Slowly pour about 1/4 cup hot milk mixture into egg yolk mixture, beating on low speed until blended. Continue adding milk, about 1/2 cup at a time, beating until incorporated after each addition.
  • Step 4 Return mixture to saucepan; stir with wooden spoon over low heat until mixture is thick enough to coat back of spoon, 3-5 minutes. Custard should retain a line drawn across the back of the spoon with fingertip.
  • Step 5 Remove pan from heat; stir in chilled cream to stop cooking. Pour custard through a fine sieve into a medium bowl set in ice bath; let stand, stirring occasionally, until chilled.
  • Step 6 Stir in extract.
  • Step 7 Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
