Lisa Herlinger quietly started making ice cream sandwiches after work, in the cafe where she cooked. Her hand-made, seasonal flavors took off and soon enough she had a growing business on her hands, Ruby Jewel. Today there are three Ruby Jewel Scoop Shops around Portland, and you can find Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwiches in retailers city wide in cluding where it all started, at the Portland Farmers Market at PSU. Lisa and her sister Becky join me to chat about building their business, how much ice cream they let their kids eat, and their favorite eats around town. 


The Marshall’s are back and talking fresh corn! This seasonal favorite is at its peak, and whether you choose to eat it off the cob, shave it off to mix into summer dishes, or put it up, Sarah and Dirk have recommendations to make the most of it.
