Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet Recipe & a Giveaway!

One of the greatest things about having a blog is the ability to really come out and support someone or something you really believe in. I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle Stern from What’s Cooking With Kids last year at the BlogHer Food convention in San Francisco. We had quite the adventure in a stretch limo with about 12 other bloggers, something we’re still laughing about! (And this is quite a dramatic story for another time.)

What I’ve come to know about Michelle is that she has an all-encompassing passion for getting kids interested and enthused about good food that is good for you. This is a passion close to my own heart, as I wrote in my post about Food vs. Fauxd.

I’ve watched over the last year as Michelle has crusaded for salad bars in schools, held classes on gardening and cooking for children, and “birthed” her 3rd child, so to speak – The Whole Family Cookbook.

The Whole Family Cookbook is filled with delicious recipes that are simple enough to get both novice moms and kids cooking in their own kitchens. The ingredients are familiar but wholesome. The pictures are beautiful and mouth-watering. Here’s a video to introduce you to Michelle and her family.

I was so excited about the book, I ordered a copy for my sister (and four year old nephew and three year old niece, who both adore cooking) as soon as it was available from Amazon. (And I used my Swagbucks to get a significant discount!) I can’t wait to go home to San Antonio to cook a recipe or two from it with them!

I made the Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet from the book last weekend. It was only my second time ever making something in our ice cream maker, and it couldn’t have been more simple. I was a little intrigued about the idea of buttermilk in a sherbet, but let me tell you – this recipe sings. It is refreshing and creamy at the same time, and the buttermilk and lemon flavors play off each other perfectly. I will be making this all summer long.

If you’d like to win your very own copy of The Whole Family Cookbook, leave a comment on this post telling me what you remember as your favorite thing to cook when you were a kid – or if you didn’t learn how to cook until you were all grown up, what’s your favorite thing to cook now?
