When I was growing up my grandma used to cook and bake all of the time. I was the baker in the family with Grandma. Before she passed away, she hand wrote her recipes for me and I am going to share them with you. Some of them are left up for interpretation so I will do my best.
Grandma Brown's Frozen Custard
This one is a family favorite...especially of my father. Dad loved her frozen custard. Cool and refreshing on a summer day. A bit tart and sweet at the same time. It is definitely one of my favorites too.
melted butterto line the pan with or buy a pre-made crust at the store
Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and save both.
Beat together the egg yolks, sugar, lemon juice or vanilla or both, in a double boiler for 10 minutes or until it thickens.
Let the mixture cool.
Beat the egg whites
Once the mixture is cool, add the beaten egg whites and the whipping cream.
Line tray with graham cracker crumbs or vanilla wafer crumbs mixed with melted butter as the crust. When grandma did this she used a 9 X 12 glass baking dish. Or purchase a pre-made crust at the store (as pictured).
Pour in mixture, you can cover lightly with more crumbs if you used that method (not as pictured) and freeze.
Serve frozen. Top with whipped cream (as pictured) or your favorite topping, if you so choose.
DISCLAIMER: Kevin, Lori, Abby, Haley, Lindsey, & Alexia do not dine anonymously (this would be impossible) and we sometimes get free food (though never expected). However, we dine with the locals and we support our own. You will always get honesty in a respectful manner.
I have lived in the Tampa Bay area for most of my life. But would never want to live anywhere else besides St Petersburg. What an amazing thriving city we have!
I have owned my own businesses, and in my past careers I have set sales records in Pharmaceutical Sales and I'm a top performer in Real Estate.
I am a University of Florida graduate with a degree in Business Finance and love living in the Historic Uptown district of St. Petersburg. I am mom to a teenage son, long-haired female chihuahua, and a leopard gecko.... I think he's a boy. (Kevin kind of stole my dog though. He calls her his "little dawg".)
I'm also a foodie that loves to cook, and eat out at great restaurants. Years ago, I even had my own food store (with my friend Lisa) in the location where Jimmy John's currently resides on 4th Street North just south of 9th Avenue North called Weekday Gourmet. I've also been to Napa and Sonoma on wine vacations eight times.
Kevin and I used to go out 4 - 5 nights a week and write reviews on our own timelines. Because of this, I am always asked by people where they should go, what they should order, etc. When we created the group it just seemed natural since we were already doing that. I love to write and take photos, so it just all works.
