Homemade Corn Ice Cream Is the Summer Dessert You Never Knew You Needed

Originally posted 06/02/2016 04:31PM

The Institute of Culinary Education is one of the largest culinary schools in the world, offering both professional and recreational programs in New York City. Here, chef James Distefano, an instructor in their School of Pastry & Baking Arts shows PEOPLE an unexpected way to eat not one, but two summertime treats!

Is there anything better than corn in the summertime? To me, corn is one of the highlights of the season’s produce. As a kid spending summers at the Jersey shore, the last thing I wanted to do was leave the beach early and shuck corn for dinner (but I did love eating it!). Now, it’s one of my favorite summer ingredients to work with, its subtle sweetness giving it the versatility to work in many dishes. What’s more: whether you’re using it in a soup, salad or simply grilled and buttered, corn is an ingredient that doesn’t need a lot of gussying up.

“Mess with me! Go ahead, bring it!” she jokes in the clip with her trainer at CUT Fitness. When it comes to the workout routine, Judge, 48, did everything from sprints to pull-ups to bicep curls. Read More

Hungry Girl: My 150-Calorie Cocktails Are the Perfect Summer Sippers

Summer is the time to cut loose and have a great time. Nobody wants to stress about their diet at the bar, but you also don’t want to slurp down hundreds of sugary calories with your good-time drinks. Not to worry, I’ve got a few easy cocktail orders most places can put together without any eye-rolling from the bartender. The best part? Each one has less than 150 calories!

*Heads up: Whatever you do, don’t mistake club soda for tonic water; club soda is calorie-free, but tonic water has around 90 calories per cup.

Blueberry Vodka + Club Soda + Orange Wedge
If the idea of a plain vodka-soda bums you out, explore the selection of fruit-flavored vodkas. They’ve got that extra yumminess without the extra calories. I love blueberry vodka, but try whatever sounds good to you. And a hearty squeeze of citrus will make it even more refreshing. Only around 110 calories in this one.

Coconut Rum + Club Soda + Splash of Pineapple Juice
The too-sugary tropical cocktails on the menu often contain hundreds and hundreds of calories. I know, it’s summer and you want a beachy drink and you can totally have one! This combo is sweet and delicious, but keeps the calorie total under control (about 120 a pop).

Tequila + Club Soda + Cherries + Splash of Orange Juice
Think of it as a tequila sunrise’s fizzy sister. A standard tequila sunrise contains grenadine, which is loaded with sugar. A couple of cherries are a much smarter way to go. And a simple splash of that OJ is all you need. This one’s a steal for around 140 calories. Cheers!

‘Til next time… Chew (and sip!) the right thing!

Are These ‘Fattening’ Foods Really Bad For You? We Investigate!

As our understanding of human nutrition grows, we must revise our misconceptions and accept new truths. For example, we now know that eating fat isn’t what makes you fat. Nor is losing weight just a matter of consuming fewer calories. Recent research about the human microbiome is also changing our understanding of the role of bacteria and other microbes in how we metabolize food.
We have found that certain so-called “health foods” actually aren’t all that healthy. Look at former all-stars like orange juice, granola, rice cakes, fruit leather and low-fat salad dressing, for starters. We’ve also demonized certain foods, only to find out later that they have benefits of which we were not aware or that we thought were trumped by what we thought were their flaws.
The following three foods have been considered unhealthy for decades, but now it’s time to accept a new reality.
