in which they made ice cream

Youngest decided on vanilla Oreo ice cream.


The Ben And Jerry's cookbook is a good starting point.

At some point, Middle decided he needed to wear a fedora.

I wasn't home so K took pictures while they mixed,

and whisked,

the mix cropped

and poured,


and spilled, and churned and froze.

I was fortunate enough to be home when they ate it -

and it was very good.

Homemade icecream is sublime.
It looks like that was a successful experiment!
My first thought was that you were standing on a chair to get those overhead shots.

I've GOT to get that cookbook. We are getting bored ovah heah.

But I found a recipe for chocolate ice cream made with coconut milk (i.e., non-dairy) and I am TOTALLY making that today.

We love that cookbook and even have a strong preference between the two chocolate ice cream recipes.

Now, for the grownups? Find a good recipe for lime basil sorbet. Heaven.

Good recipe = fresh lime juice, finely chopped fresh basil,simple syrup (water/sugar mix boiled until it thickens).

Oreo ice cream is the best. Homemade Ben & Jerry's Oreo ice cream has to be over the top.

It's time for me to break out the ice cream freezer that was a wedding gift almost 10 years ago. And bb, I realized from your archives that we have the same wedding anniversary date. What about that.

That brings back memories of the crank-style one we had when I was growing up -- but we never had Oreo ice cream, it always had something I didn't like, like peaches.

Now I need to go buy an ice cream maker.

I need to make my own peanut butter cup ice cream.

Any suggestions?

That looks excellent. I'm curious to know how the coffee ice cream turned out. If only there were samples available!

Fedora / chef's hat... I see very little difference.

And I am delighted to see two young fellas in the kitchen.

I hope to see my own boys follow their father's example and become excellent cooks!
