Christmas cake ~ Jamaicans take Christmas seriously. Very, very seriously. And there is nothing that symbolizes how much preparation and forethought goes into the one day than in the baking of the Christmas Cake. Several pounds of dried mixed fruits, prunes, raisins, cherries are purchased and soaked in rum and red wine months in advance and the grumblings about the high cost of basic food items die down as homemakers set out to buy around 20 different ingredients for one dish.
No Churn Pomegranate Ice Cream: It's not hard to think of a pudding that can be made in advance. But mostly the advantage is simply that all the effort is upfront and early. The thing about this recipe is that you do it in advance - it's ice cream, so that stands to reason - but what you do in advance is negligible in terms of effort.
Spectacular photographs show the moment Niagara Falls FROZE
Niagara Falls fact. It's true, there have been winters so cold in Canada that Niagara Falls froze. You can see pictures in the historic Brock Hotel in Niagara Falls (along with a picture of Marilyn Monroe visiting the Falls!!)
