my May birthdate
The flavor was also a simple choice: strawberries are always a harbinger of sunny days and summer vacation to me (they also remind me of my birthday - I almost always have something with strawberries to celebrate my May birthdate). Strawberry ice cream, with the strawberries roasted to bring out their flavor. To play up the whimsy of Alessi's bowl, I decided to swirl in some marshmallow creme - it adds a touch of fluffy lightness to the rich, custard-based ice cream. To keep the marshmallow separate from the rest of the ice cream, swirl it in at the very end by hand instead of adding it directly to the ice cream machine - I learned that the hard way! To make it a proper sundae, I topped the ice cream with some almond praline and Valrhona chocolate pearls. I love adding crunch to ice cream, and I also like how the marshmallow and the chocolate give a subtle neapolitan theme to the sundae. Big Love comes in a variety of summer-bright shades, but I was particularly smitten by the... (more)

The Common Ills
Iraq snapshot
Iraq snapshot Monday, July 28, 2014, Chaos and violence continue, rumors swirl that Nouri might have realized how toxic he is, how many US troops have been sent back into Iraq, and much more. Counting is apparently hard for journalism majors. Kristina Wong (The Hill) reported Sunday: The Obama administration has quietly moved an additional 62 advisers to Iraq over the past three weeks, according to defense officials. The additions bring the total number of advisers in the country to 242, still short of the 300 advisers that President Obama authorized for Iraq last month. And, last week, Felicia Schwartz (Wall St. Journal) reports: The Pentagon said 20 additional military advisers recently arrived in Iraq, bringing total U.S. military personnel there to 825. Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren ... (more)

Daily Devotion
Safely On The Plane
Date: Sunday, July 27, 2014 Today's Chapters: Isaiah 25-28 Message Title: Safely On The Plane When you stop to think about it, salvation is like a one way ticket on a plane to heaven, bought and paid for with the blood of Jesus Christ. Once you get on, there is no turning back, you must ride the flight all the way there, and once you get there, true paradise. Now, I imagine that unless we are seriously ill to the point that it's only a matter of time that God comes to get us, we are not really in a hurry to see Jesus any time soon. Do not worry, Jesus is not offended or saddened by that fact, He loves you and the truth is, He is not done with you here yet, you still have work to do. “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know... (more)


Truth in Love
The Point Of No Return
The Point of No Return Author: Don McGee Source: In light of recent events centered in Washington a number of people are predicting a coming change in the way this country will be governed, and it is quite clear that the reason for their fearful expectation has to do with what they call their “growing loss of liberty.” It might come as a surprise to some readers, but these people are not all Christians and Bible prophecy teachers. Many could not quote John 3:16-17 or name even four of the apostles if their lives depended upon it. They see themselves as regular people and their voices can be heard at morning coffee klatches all over this country. They sense that some event is near and their conviction is that it is ominous. For students of prophecy the whole thing is very transparent which is the reason we don't marvel at what is happening, nor do we shake in fear. God has given... (more)
