Happy Veteran’s Day!

The month of November is about giving thanks.  When we sit around the dinner table with our loved ones on Thanksgiving, we pause and give thanks for the things that we have.  I am asking that today we all pause and give thanks to the people who have fought for the things that we have.  Our Veterans.

Marie Callender’s Comforts from Home

I am privileged to be able to share a wonder movement from Marie Callender’s with you, called “Comforts from Home.”   We have all heard of Marie Callender’s.  They are known for creating homemade meals and desserts made with high-quality ingredients and signature special touches that your family can slow down and savor together.  This fall, Marie Callender’s announced the return of the Comforts from Home Project, a partnership with the United Service Organizations (USO) that’s dedicated to bringing the heartwarming feelings, flavors, and favorites of home to those who miss it most, those of our loved ones in the U.S. Military.  The program ensures that our troops have a place to celebrate every holiday, bringing the comforts of home that can often be taken for granted, such as seasonal meals, company, entertainment and a chance to relax away from the stress of active service.  Last year, with consumers’ overwhelming support, Marie Callender’s brought care packages to a very deserving group of servicemen and women stationed overseas through a $250,000 donation to the USO2GO program.

To share the Comforts From Home campaign with you,  I was asked to chose one of the meals or desserts from the participating products.

I chose the small apple pie.  I mean what dessert is more American than APPLE PIE?!  These small pies are a perfect dessert for two.


Although you can cook them in the microwave, I chose to follow the baking instructions on the box.  Easy and delicious.

I topped the warm pie with two scoops of Vanilla Caramel Swirl Ice Cream.  That creamy ice cream on that warm cinnamon-y apple pie, was the perfect dessert for my honey and  me.

  • Take a large scoop of the whipped cream and slowly stir into the sweetened condensed milk to lighten it up. (image #3) Add remaining whipped cream stirring slowly.
  • Consistency will be smooth with a few bumps. Don't mix too long or you will remove the air from the mixture.
  • Spread almost half of the mixture into a loaf pan, top with half of the caramel syrup, (image #4) add almost all of the rest of the mixture, reserving a small about, spread over caramel, top with remaining caramel, then the remaining cream mixture. Take a butter knife and "cut" through the mixture both directions to swirl the caramel throughout. (image #5)
  • Cover with plastic wrap, making sure that it lays directly on top of the cream, and freeze for 24 hours. (image #6)
  • Scoop and enjoy! Eat within two weeks.

  1. Hi Michaela
    I am lactose free and I am not sure I can use condensed milk. Is there a way I could use Lactose free milk and add something else instead? I love, love caramel ice creams!

    1. Carol, Thanks for writing in. You are correct. Sweetened condensed milk is made from cow’s milk, and actually contains more lactose in a smaller volume. There are companies that make a dairy-free sweetened condensed milk, though! It’s not the same as regular milk, and lactose-free milk won’t give the recipe the same outcome. If you can’t find the dairy-free version by you, there are loads of recipes on the internet to make your own dairy-free sweetened condensed milk, too. Depending on how much effort you want to put into it. 🙂
