I'm in-freaking-LOVE with my new ice cream maker.
We bought an ice cream maker [think old skool with rock salt, and a cork], right after we got married. We used to always make homemade ice cream! We had a lot of fun trying out different recipes, adding things in, and generally being cool. [We were oh-so-cool 10 years ago...]
I've wanted one of the new "cool" and oh-so-fancy ice cream makers, but I don't have $300 to lay down at Williams Sonoma to get one. So, I coveted.
[Isn't that one of the 7 deadly sins? If it is, so is gluttony, right? I like to make sure to committ fully to my sins.]
But, I saw this little countertop ice cream maker at Costco!! It was only $39 and included an extra bowl. Boo-yah. Thank you to my awesome mother-in-law who bought it for me for my birthday. [She doesn't know it, becuase she gave me cash, which I converted into an ice cream maker.]
I've had it for 2 weeks, and have already gotten some great use out of it!
Last night I made fresh raspberry sorbet. Last week I made honey peach frozen yogurt.
What are your favorite ice cream recipes? Frozen yogurt? I've already written down a ton of ideas. Now...if only the weather would stay nice so I could test them all out!!
[A cool feature: super easy to make slushies for the midgets! Just add any drink and turn it on until it's a slushy! Going to be stellar in the middle of the summer!]
