Happy summer reading to all!
I adore ice cream.
I know, I know. I often write in this blog that I adore something. I like food. Sue me.
But I truly, truly adore ice cream. I remember a time when my husband "caught" me in the kitchen, before I was heading out for my morning exercise, with the freezer door open, a container of ice cream in my hands, and a huge spoon tucked into my mouth.
He said, "Um, what are you doing?"
I sheepishly answered, "Having medicine."
Yep, I think of ice cream as medicine. It calms me. Cools my head. Makes me feel goooooood. Yep, I also know I shouldn't have too much. But a little bit here and there, right? It's sort of like chocolate and wine and, well, all sorts of things that we know we shouldn't have too much of, but we need to have at times to make our gourmet life yummy.
So I happen to think I have perfected the at-home vanilla ice cream recipe. I like to add things to it. If you don't like fruit in your ice cream, remove it from this recipe. The vanilla will still stand on its own.
Enjoy. Treat yourself occasionally because you are WORTH IT. And keep cool.
By the way, it's hot, hot, hot in Los Angeles. 110 degrees at 5 p.m. last night! And it's supposed to be that way all week. The upside...it's dry heat. How is the weather where you all are???
APRICOT-STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM
PLEASE... and THANK YOU.
P.S. The original ice cream recipe came from the Cuisinart cookbook that came with the machine. And then I tweaked it. I love tweaking. :)
You can pre-order the book HERE.
Also, you probably know about my alter ego.
