  1. Thank you all! We had some changes in circumstances so we won't be able to go in the next few months, but I am definitely saving this list for spring!!
  2. Thank you for the recommendation... I think it won't be for us.. but I appreciate the recommendation!
  3. My husband, dog, and I are in desperate need of a relocation for 4-5 days. I still have to work (because I am a teacher, and it is just more work for my amazing team if I am out) so I need high speed internet. Does anyone have any ideas of reasonably priced locations that have reliable high speed? Deep Creek seems pretty expensive this year, as I think many people are thinking like us. We would love some mountains. We may do take-out, but we won't be eating indoors at this time. We just really need a change of view and a few nice hikes.
  4. Thank you for both tips! We will give it a shot.
  5. ok- this is not about the cuisinart ice cream maker.. this is ABSENCE of ice cream maker question. I let a friend borrow mine and she left for the beach. My sister requested making blackberry ice cream after we go to Larriland on Friday. I am looking for no-spin recipes, does anyone have one? Alternatively, I found this one online and left a question.. do you think it will work? Is there enough fat to keep it from getting icy? https://www.sweetspicykitchen.com/desserts/blackberry-cheesecake-ice-cream/?fbclid=IwAR3HFBPWlL6ZbvIclGwDC0tG3WsLN9kvOBDaujgnN3ole8DUDbAv14DLtm8
  6. If you are in Frederick, Howard, AA Co. keep an eye out for Mike's Gelato. Mike runs a food truck with his gelatos, and they are fantastic. He came to our neighborhood one night and now we are hooked... our favorites are pistachio, hazelnut, lemon raspberry crunch, and chocolate. https://my-site-108372-109500.square.site/ He posts his locations on fb and instagram. He also does delivery, but we haven't tried that. He is doing scoops again, but we have just been bringing home pints at $10 each. This is our affordable indulgence of this stay at home time. HIGHLY recommend.
  7. An update on my quest, I went to the HMart in Ellicott City yesterday morning right at opening. I got tea flavored kit kats, which are AMAZING!! They also had matcha, sake, orange, ruby/cranberry, and birthday ones you can color on. At $6 a bag, I only got one- and I regret that now. I also stocked up on my favorite snack: Ageichiban- which are fried rice cakes coated in sweet soy sauce. I got them as an impulse try in Lotte market- they are so good!! If you are at any Asian market- I HIGHLY recommend. I also got some Koala and mushroom cookies, mochi (and some fruit, so I looked like I bough
  8. That makes sense, I didn't think of that.
  9. Thanks TheMatt! I will take a look when things lift. Until then, I shall dream of future trips abroad.
  10. Thank you Dean! I love his Youtube channel! II have definitely been watching a lot as we are safe at home. I will try to track some down, maybe at that store. Probably not great to ship now that it is getting so hot. My parents brought some home from Japan last year- most were really sweet but not all. If you ever see the Hokkaido melon Mascarpone cheese kit kats, BUY THEM! They are so good! Unexpectedly amazing, and not very sweet. Matcha and sake flavors, not sweet at all.
  11. I am definitely going to check out Maruichi! I will pair it with a trip to the farmers market in Rockville. Thanks!
