Monday, August 30, 2010 If you love nutella…you should make this ice cream. It is sooo good. And so easy to put together before popping it into an ice cream maker.
Friday, May 21, 2010 I recently bought an ice cream maker. To prove to myself that it was a good investment, I've been trying to use it as much as possible. So far, I've shied away from the custard based recipes because they require a bit more work. I'll get there eventually.
We all want to be a little healthier. Let's be honest, you can't live on Slutty Brownies (and the world is a sadder place for it). However, the idea of snuggling down infront of a movie with a big bowl of celery sticks is deeply depressing.
So… Has it been hot enough out there for you? Did you feel Mother Nature’s dragon breath singeing your leg stubble? You had leg stubble, don’t lie to me. You were totally in a hurry during the heat wave one morning and forgot to shave your legs. Why else were you sporting a maxi dress in that oppressive heat?
July is National Ice Cream month , and I’m so excited to show you how making your own homemade ice cream is easier than you may think! No ice cream maker? No problem. Out of rock salt? Don’t need it! You can make this ice cream in just four easy steps.
It is hot hot hot here! We are craving anything cold! My kids would be satisfied with a regular popsicle but mom is missing those old Jello Pudding pops.
November 25, 2009 | Print | E-mail | Filed under ice cream , vanilla When I started thinking about Thanksgiving desserts, I knew that ice cream had to be on the list. Instead of picking up a carton like I usually do though, I decided I wanted to make my own. Or to be more accurate, Dorie Greenspan’s .
July 11, 2009 | Print | E-mail | Filed under strawberry This past week, I was STILL looking for ways to use up the strawberries hubby and I got when we went strawberry picking . I received several suggestions, but I think it was Susan who suggested that I make strawberry sorbet. Since it had been on the hot side all week, I decided to go for it, and I’m so glad I did!
July 16, 2009 | Print | E-mail | Filed under strawberry Last week, I finally used up all of the strawberries hubby and I got when we went strawberry picking . Since the strawberry sorbet went over so well, I decided to stick with the frozen dessert theme, so I made this basic, no-frills strawberry frozen yogurt. On a hot and humid day, it really hits the spot!
August 24, 2010 | Print | E-mail | Filed under ice cream , pumpkin With the summer winding down and cooler weather beginning to arrive, I finally decided it was time to get out my ice cream maker and make some ice cream. Why it took me this long I’m not really sure, although perhaps it had something to do with my newfound addiction to canning everything in sight. In any case, I thought it fitting to bring the two seasons together by making pumpkin ice cream, which I’ve had on my list of things to try ever since I saw it on David Lebovitz’s blog . And since apple picking season will be underway soon, I’ll be looking forward to trying out a scoop of this ice cream on top of a slice of warm apple pie.
I have something that you absolutely must put on your summer to-do list. And if you don’t have an ice cream maker, add “beg, borrow, or buy an ice cream maker” to your list right before this: MAKE LEMON ICE CREAM. So delicious. So refreshing. So summery.
Memorial Day weekend is the official start to summer (or is it unofficial since summer “officially” starts on June 21st? Hmph…), and nothing says summer quite like fresh homemade ice cream! I got the party started a couple of weeks ago by sharing some of my favorite ice cream recipes with you, and now I have a brand new one to add to the collection. Mint chocolate chip is one of those ice cream flavors that I sometimes forget exists, yet every time I eat it I absolutely adore it. And now that I have a homemade version, I’ll be making it even more!
I have become a strawberry ice cream convert in my adulthood. When I was a kid, I didn’t want to be anywhere near the stuff. I’ve always adored strawberries, but for some reason strawberry ice cream couldn’t have been more vile to me.
Back when I talked about my Florida vacation and all of the wonderful things about it, I included all of the ice cream that I ate. We made a habit of polishing off a cone just about every evening, which I of course loved! While on vacation, I fell in love with the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup variety from Edy’s Fun Flavors line. It was my choice every night, piled into a waffle cone, thank you very much. Once we got back, I knew I wanted to try making a homemade version of that ice cream, and also knew that it wouldn’t be too difficult.
You all know how in love I am with homemade ice cream – to date, I have 25 ice cream-related desserts posted on the blog, and there pretty much isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not dreaming up a new concoction. Ice cream made at home is infinitely better than any store bought variety I have ever tried, and coming up with new and different versions is something I look forward to every summer. I typically always use a custard base for my ice creams, chill it, and then churn it with my ice cream attachment . It’s a bit of a process, but always worth it. So I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw “two-ingredient ice cream”. I couldn’t fathom how this was possible, and of course needed to do some experimenting.
