1Y2B3703Though I now live in the southern United States, I spent most of my childhood in New England.  I grew up building epically detailed snow forts, sledding down ravines with store-bought sleds, and eating snow cream and frozen maple syrup candy.

Now that I live in the South snow is a rare vestige of my childhood and I get incredibly nostalgic when I see the powdery, white flakes.  It only happens every other year, but this morning I was pleased to see a blanket of snow across my lawn.

So for my southern friends, here is a recipe for Snow Cream and Maple Syrup Snow Candy.  Enjoy it while it lasts.

I am a freelance photographer and writer, working for various magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I love what I do, but I have a lot of restrictions depending on which brand and publication I'm working for. This blog gives me the opportunity to have fun. I'm also a pretty terrible cook, so this blog is forcing me to learn some kitchen skills, which is both thrilling and infuriating. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, half as much as I enjoy making it.
