Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Jack Apple Fried Ice Cream

The cereal adds such a sweet coating after frying, this will be a kids(or maybe an adults)favorite. Sure the preparation may take a bit, but they sure are worth it! Try using your favorite cereal, crused, in place of what is listed.


For 6 Serving(s)


  • 1 quart(s) vanilla ice cream
  • 4 cup(s) crushed apple-flavored cereal
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup(s) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) milk
  • 2 quarts canola, peanut or vegetable oil

Jack Apple Fried Ice Cream Directions

  1. Scoop out 1/2-cup measures of ice cream and roll into balls quickly, placing them on a large plate or platter. While you are doing them one at a time, place in the freezer immediately. When done, make sure they all freeze for 30 minutes. In the meantime, in a large bowl, add the crushed cereal; set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar and milk; set aside.
    After 30 minutes, remove each ice cream ball, one at a time, and roll in the egg wash, then the coconut mixture. It is best to place some dry mixture in the palm of your hand then place the ice cream ball on top. Then grab some more dry and squeeze it all around the ice cream ball. Place back into the freezer and repeat with remainder of balls. Freeze an additional 30 minutes in total.
    Repeat the process but this time, freeze the ice cream balls for at least 2 hours to firm up as much as possible.
    Add oil about 4-inches deep to a large, heavy pot over medium heat to 350-degrees F, or heat a deep fryer according to manufacturers instructions. When ready, fry ice cream balls in oil for 20 seconds, one at a time. If coating starts to come off(which it shouldn't)at 15 seconds, remove them. Take them out and immediately place onto a plate and into the freezer. Repeat with remainder of ice cream balls.
    Freeze another 30 minutes and serve with whipped cream, sliced fruit or chocolate sauce.
