    The ice cream looks heavenly! I’m definitely checking out Miz Helen’s blog, she sounds like such a lovely lady! It looks and sounds like you had a great time – will we be seeing the recipe for the raspberry peach crisp soon? It looks so good. :)

    @Zoe @ Z’s Cup of Tea, The raspberry peach crisp is going in my book…I have to hold a few things back. LOL.

    @Amy, Yet another reason to look forward to your cookbook! I will definitely be making it. In the meantime, I’ll continue to let myself be teased by the tasty photos. ;)

    I dream of being the kind of hostess that can throw together such an awesome meal, and have lovely little place settings like that. Sigh…someday. :)

    I totally get what you mean about being included. I’ve only been GF for a few months, but with friends and family, I either feel left out (liking watching everyone else chow down on cheesecake while I sip on my water), or like a pain in the neck (“Can I look at the ingredient list, please? Oh, I’m sorry-I can’t eat that.”). You are so blessed to have a friend like that!

    Also…your hair looks really great! That cut really suits you. :)

    @April L., Helen does it without effort. It’s amazing to watch her in the kitchen. And, yes, she’s a huge blessing.

    Thanks for the feedback on my hair!

    I second April’s comment! Your haircut is really great. Love it.

    What a lovely time you had. The place settings, the ice cream, wow! Helen seems like a truly special person. I’m off to check out her new blog!

    @Alta, Glad you like the new do….I love it. I was so stuck on being able to pull it up into a ponytail that I wouldn’t cut it. But, it’s a perfect fit for now.

    Yes, Helen is very special. We’ve been friends for years and there’s never a day I don’t learn something from her.

    @Miz Helen, It was a fantastic day, wasn’t it! I loved our Pickle Pot dressing – can’t wait for my pickles to be ready so I can make some more. I always look forward to working alongside you, Helen! Love you, too!

    Wow, what an awesome meal! I loved hearing about your wonderful evening. I am excited to check out Helen’s blog. When I have people over for dinner the first time, I always ask about dietary restrictions and the like, and if they have them, I customize a menu based on that info. So I have cook vegetarian, gluten free, vegan, kosher and many others. It is a fun challenge that I enjoy, and it makes me feel good, because I hate to make anyone feel left out when they are coming to my house!

    Delicious! I love anything with lemon. So interesting that it uses gelatin. Thanks for the recipe!

    @City Share, The gelatin helps the ice cream ‘whip up’ and incorporate a little more air when it’s homemade. Hugs.
