arrow community cookbook! hooray!

we are so pleased that our little community cookbook is here!

filled with over 80 recipes from arrow's friends and families from far and wide, the cookbook has ideas for family-friendly nibbles, meals, drinks, and sweet treats. (plus, we love the screenprinted cover that was printed by the new athens business, double dutch press.)

the cookbook is $24 and is for sale at arrow, and also the following local businesses: avid bookshop, farm 255, & treehouse. your purchase of a cookbook supports all of the creative programming at Arrow, your local not-for-profit community space for families!

thank you to all of those who contributed recipes to this project!

fun with food

our friend lily kaplan has begun a summer series of fun with food workshops for the little ones.

yesterday was our first one:

making ice cream!

coffee can

ice cream

- 1lb coffee can

- 2-3lb coffee cans*

*(the cans need to be metal for the cold factor, but plastic lids are great! i was able to find kroger brand still does metal! everyone else has gone plastic...)

- 1 pint half and half

- 1/3 c sugar

- vanilla bean

- rock salt

- ice

- duct tape

- any other toppings or fun might be fun to crush up ginger snaps or cookies or add fresh fruit!

- pour cream and sugar into smaller can, seal, and duct tape...

- place in the larger metal can, fill with ice and rock salt alternatively, seal, and duct tape...

- kick or roll the can for 10 minutes!

- open the larger can and pour out water

- open the smaller can and scrape ice cream off of sides and give a good stir. now is a good time to add any flavors like vanilla bean, fruit, or crushed cookies...

- replace lid on smaller and seal again with duct tape. place inside large can, add more ice and salt, and reseal with lid and duct tape.

- roll another 10 minutes...

- unwrap everything and enjoy!
