Editor’s Note: Nothing beats homemade ice cream! In celebration of National Ice Cream Month, Galen Lehman, president of Lehman’s and son of founder Jay Lehman, is sharing how to make this sweet treat in a traditional ice cream freezer (like the one pictured above).
Our family spent 10 years in Africa doing missionary and disaster relief work. In those days, dairy products and especially ice cream were rarely available. Our version of a great party included homemade ice cream (if we could find the ingredients). Fortunately, the list is short: Cream, eggs, sugar, vanilla. And, if you can’t get the first three ingredients, Carnation Condensed Milk and vanilla makes a passable (but not especially great) substitute.
The real question with every homemade ice cream party is “hand cranked” or “electric”? Continue reading

Making homemade jam is simpler than you think.
Homemade strawberry jam has long since been a staple in the Lehman family kitchen. I grew up watching my brother eat it on toast, my dad scoop it up with crackers as a sweet dessert, and my mom prepare it from scratch. It wasn’t until recent years, however, that I joined her in the annual jam making. Continue reading
If you’re a regular reader of the blogs posted here at Lehman’s, you might have seen my last two additions, Mexican and Korean dishes. I love both of those regions’ foods, and the recipes there are some of my absolute favorites.
This time, it’s a real crowd pleaser – Italian! When you think of Italian dishes, you probably think of delicious pastas with creamy sauces, crunchy bread with olive oils and garlic, a great selection of cheeses, and of course, the best pizza in the world. Maybe seafood, like shrimp, also comes to mind, or chicken crusted with Parmesan. Just about every ingredient associated with Italian food makes the mouths of most water. This blog post includes two pasta recipes (of course), and one recipe that might surprise you! Continue reading
Who doesn’t love an old-fashioned barbecue? Outdoor cooking is as American as apple pie. Whether you live in the country or are grilling on your apartment patio, cooking outside connects us all with the great American outdoors. And the taste of grilled food is out of this world.
Although nothing beats a grilled hot dog or burger, grilling has advanced far beyond those outdoor staples. With the right product, you can cook anything you would in your kitchen on your grill. Breakfast, lunch, dinner – you and your grill can do it all. Beyond meats, you can ‘cue up an assortment of tasty veggies and delicious desserts.
Our own Amanda Burt shares one of her favorite summer meals, along with some helpful hints. Continue reading
Cooking is one of my favorite ways to spend time, and international recipes are my absolute favorites to cook! I love putting together unexpected ingredients and ending up with something delicious and adventurous. In this second installment of my series on international recipes, we are going to travel to Asia! Continue reading
Since discovering my love for cooking a few years ago, I have also found that I love a certain kind of recipe the best – international recipes! Why should we stick to our same old menus when there is an entire world out there filled with different foods to try? Cooking dishes from another country is like traveling there and experiencing their culture, right at home. I like to make cooking international recipes even more of a cultural experience by listening to music from the region my recipe is from while I’m cooking, and learning more about the history of the recipe. Introducing different ethnicities’ foods into your recipe book will add tons of new flavors and ingredients you may not have tried before, and you may find some new favorites! Continue reading
