2008 Races

I’m using this page to help me track the runs, bike races and triathlons that I’m thinking of competing in this summer. From here I will link to race information and my blog posts if/when I write about them.

Classic Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Recipe

As summer approaches, I start to see more shopping ads that include recipes for favorite summer treats. Here’s a good one from Williams-Sonoma.

The best vanilla ice cream is made with vanilla beans that have been steeped in custard to release their maximum flavor. If vanilla beans are unavailable, simply omit the steeping and add 2 tsp. vanilla extract to the chilled custard before freezing.
