Chavez for Charity
“When we launched Chavez for Charity in early 2013, our goal was to create a line of fashion accessories that people would love to wear and at the same time allow us to contribute, in a significant way, to charitable causes we care about.

What we didn’t foresee is the impact this collection would have on others or how it would become a catalyst for meaningful, productive and sometimes very personal conversations.”
~Founder, Julie Marie Chavez

Each color of bracelet represents and also benefits specific non-profits around the world.  For example the blue bracelets benefit Water.org, the yellow bracelets benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand, etc.  Stop by Adrian’s and check these out! $12.99 each.

Country Vanilla Ice Cream (Meyer Family Recipe)

11 07 2013

Meyer Family Recipe  (Vicki’s Family)

Country Vanilla Ice Cream

This is the “Meyer Family Recipe” that Vicki and all of my sisters grew up with and I cannot count how many times we have cranked this ice cream…NO ELECTRICITY ALLOWED! We are a true HAND-CRANK ice cream famiy…and when we started getting married, some of the new son-in-laws thought we should go electric…no way!

Ice Cream Hand Crank

It’s all about the experience and sitting on top of that cold freezer on a hot summer day, although we’ve been known to crank ice cream with snow on a cold and blustery winter day too!

Ice Cream Contents

The very best part is when you pull out the “rib” and eat that first bite right from the freezer! What delicious memories!

Ice Cream Bowl

 “This recipe came with the very first ice cream freezer my husband, Herman and I bought shortly after we were married in 1959.”
~Ruth Meyer

Herman & Ruth Meyer
Castle Rock, Colorado

4 eggs, well beaten
2 ½ c. sugar
6 c. milk
4 c. heavy whipping cream
1 ½ T. real vanilla
½ tsp. salt

Add sugar gradually to beaten eggs, beating well after each addition…You cannot over beat this mixture!  When mixture becomes very stiff, add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Freeze per manufacturers instructions.

Hope YOU and your family enjoy this as much as we have!

Buhler, Kansas

Streusel:
1 c. light brown sugar
1 c. chopped apples
1 c. sliced almonds, pecans or walnuts (optional)
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 T. butter, melted

Making the Streusel: Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 0r 10 inch tube pan. To prepare streusel, in a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, apples, almonds, flour and cinnamon. Stir in melted butter.

Cake:
2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 c. orange juice

Make the cake:
1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda; mix well. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time; beat well after each addition. Add vanilla.

2. Set mixer to low; alternately beat flour mixture and orange juice into egg mixture. Spoon half of batter into tube pan. Sprinkle with half of streusel.

3. Spoon the remaining batter over the streusel, spreading to make an even layer. Swirl batter with knife to create a marble pattern.

4. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove cake from oven; sprinkle top with remaining streusel. Return cake to oven; bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 3o-35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely.

Glaze:

2 1/2 tsp. orange juice

Make the Glaze: Combine confectioners sugar and orange juice. Mix well. Turn cake out onto a serving plate; invert so streusel is on top. Drizzle glaze over cake; serve. Serves 12.
