I love to eat and I love to cook. I am not the world's most adventurous eater but I am getting better. I can honestly say that I spend a good portion of every day reading about food, thinking about food, cooking food, and eating food.

Scoopable ice cream: corn syrup, alcohol, both?

I used the corn syrup alone and it turned out very well. It is pretty velvety and scoopable straight out of the freezer.

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 pound fresh rhubarb or frozen, thawed, drained, cut into 1-inch pieces
6 oz chopped strawberries
2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Embarrassing childhood foods

Agree with blizcheetah... PB&J often turns into a total horror show in your backpack. Edible but texture-wise pretty gross.
