My Tuesday Twister posts are my weekly round-up of what’s going on in my kitchen and our lives, as it pertains to GNOWFGLINS. We try as much as possible to make use of “God’s natural, organic, whole foods, grown locally and in season.” So here we go – I’ll catch you up on what’s twisting in my kitchen this week!

This week, I have no recent pictures. But I’ll tell you what I’ve been doing in the kitchen.
Something fixed. The dishwasher. This is an amazing help to me! And the kids like it, too – they’d been washing the mountains of dishes for the months the dishwasher was out of commission. Even though I hadn’t been doing many of the dishes, they were on my mind. The piles of dishes to be washed or dishes to be dried just zapped my mind every time I was in the kitchen, or passed the kitchen, or thought about the kitchen. In other words, practically all the time.
Something I’ve figured out. Don’t be greedy when making ice cream. I was overfilling the ice cream maker every time I made ice cream, and would always wonder why it didn’t freeze fully. Of course, I never questioned my method. I thought the ice cream maker wasn’t that good. For my 2-quart ice cream maker, I’ve started only filling it 2/3 of the way. Now I get a solid soft freeze, rather than a soupy soft freeze. What happens is the frozen tub in which the filling gets churned only has so much freeze to give before it is no longer cold. If there’s too much filling, there’s not enough chilling.
Some things we’ve eaten. Sloppy Joe’s in a Bowl – three times. What can I say? It is really good! Chocolate sourdough cake with basic vanilla frosting (chocolate is pictured). Basic raw soaked granola. Sprouted spelt biscuits. Maple cookies and chocolate pixies, thanks to A..
