icebox-cakeA delight of a recipe to share today, the Ice Box Cake.

Similar in name to IceMilk, and similar in that the term “ice box” has really been dropped from our vocabulary today. Ice boxes are what modern day refrigerators are to us today, an absolutely essential development for kitchens everywhere. Most were made of wood, then lined with a metal like tin or zinc, with a layer of padding like cork or straw between to help insulate the large block of ice inside that kept the family food cool.

So todays recipe, the Ice Box Cake is a wonderfully inspiring treat. I hope it will make children ask for years to come “why is it called an ice box cake?” And it makes for a lovely presentation with the lady fingers & glass dish.

black-walnut-cookiesMy post yesterday on Girl Scout cookies influenced this lovely recipe for Black Walnut Cookies.

This is another one of Nana’s. When I look at each new recipe it’s almost like a scavenger hunt and today I found something lost in time!

Black walnut extract. I love how these old recipes have these seemingly-extinct extracts that no one seems to use or have on hand anymore. Honestly, my favorite one to date is Rose extract – mmmm what a romantic & wonderful taste to consider for your next batch of cookies.
