we all scream for ice cream
I’ve decided to declare this week “ice cream week” here on the blog… mainly because it’s June, which means it’s officially the “summer” and time to crave icy goodness every afternoon. I’m a huge “ice cream” afficiando — be it gelato, sorbet or a Fudgesicle — so this is definitely not foreign territory to me at all. In fact, I once spent $22 on a simple ice cream cone in Italy, just because I had to have 11 flavors of gelato in one little dish.
So get your ice cream maker ready and put your chilling bowl in the freezer… (if you don’t have an ice cream maker, I HIGHLY recommend the Cuisinart 2-quart ice cream maker!) and I’ll be sharing a tried & true recipe with you every day this week!
I hope you’ll be making something from the BEST ice cream cookbook – A Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz. I’m not sure I’ve ever had better ice cream than homemade from these recipes. :)
P.S. I also have the Cuisinart 1.5 qt ice cream maker which is also excellent.
I guess you’ll just have to wait until Thursday to see which recipe I choose :) Hint: it’s one that’s already been web-published so I don’t break the law at all or make the ice cream genius upset. Do you happen to follow his blog as well? :)
the dude and I met because we both have that ice cream maker! (among other reasons)
Really??? That’s so cute! Mr. M and I met for our first date at a cookie shop…. where their specialty is ice cream sandwiches. :)
