Landon surprised me by getting me the ice cream attachment for my kitchen-aid last week! I have been asking for one for over a year, so I was EXTREMELY excited to try it out. Thank you honey! The bowl went into the freezer, and I was making ice cream the next day. Over the last week I have made ice cream 4 times...thankfully the bowl only makes 1 quart.
The first one I tried was strawberry since I had some very ripe strawberries on hand. I found this recipe for Creamy Dreamy Strawberry Ice Cream over at Annie's Eats. It was delicious and very easy to make!
I ordered the book The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz - he has some of the best recipes. I used his chocolate recipe to make this Rocky Road Ice Cream (Landon's favorite).
We made ice cream at Liz's house Sunday, and we used her Mint Chocolate Chip recipe - you can find it here, at allrecipes. It smelled and tasted delicious! I love anything with mini chocolate chips in it!
I can't wait to try some gelato and frozen yogurt recipes! Yay for ice cream!
