Make Your Own Ice Cream in Five Minutes

Make Your Own Ice Cream in Five Minutes
Photo Credit: Sarah Fernandez I have such fond memories of making homemade ice cream in the summer when we were kids. We used to go pick fresh strawberries and blackberries and then come home and pull out the electric machine and load in the ingredients. Watching the ingredients solidify into a delicious dessert had our eyes glued to the spinning bowl. I keep wanting to do it with my kids, and that old machine is still sitting at my parents house for us to use, but it always seems like such a production to pull it out so I was thrilled when I came across a recipe for how to make individual servings of ice cream using just a few ingredients, zip top bags, and a little man power.

honey lavender ice cream if you’ve been following my blog, you know by now how much i love ice cream. and i’m not exaggerating when i say that i think this is the best ice cream i’ve ever had. it is rich and creamy, as all ice creams should be, but the flavors add a level of complexity that i don’t think i’ve ever found in ice cream before. i wanted to make another recipe that would highlight the lavender that my friend jules gave me. someone had mentioned to me that they had once had an amazing lavender ice cream, and that sounded like a pretty good idea. but i didn’t want to just add lavender to a plain old ice cream – i wanted to really highlight the lavender’s beautiful floral quality without making ice cream that just tasted like flowers. so, i decided to sweeten my ice cream with honey instead of sugar. honey lavender ice cream

Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe There is nothing as good as a simple and easy Chinese chicken stir fry. As you know I am a huge fan of using a deep fryer to fry my Chinese food but nothing beats the convenience of stir frying in a wok. This is a very basic stir fry recipe; it uses few ingredients and will only take a little time to prepare for dinner. Nutella Mug Cake I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix. I modified the classic mug cake recipe, added Nutella, and a little more milk and oil than I had been using before. The results were beyond amazing.

Smoothie Lover As I told in my last post my brother and I had a little Birthday party for the family in the easter.
