Ice Cream!

For Christmas (2010) I opened a brand new green ice-cream maker from my mother-in-law.  I had an older version which uses rock salt and ice, but truthfully it was so loud and took over an hour to churn. I rarely used it except in the summer, in which I would have to time it, turn it on, run to camp for dinner and get home an hour later to turn it off.  The new and improved machine comes with a freezer bowl and I can make a batch in 15-20 minutes – Amazing!  My husband a long time lover of the sweet stuff is so excited about my (His) new gift!

We already had a Ben & Jerry’s cookbook, which is excellent and a great start, but I also have scoured other cookbooks, online sources, and received a few favorites from friends.  I have given myself the waist-line increasing goal of making one new flavor a week for the whole year.   So 52 flavors, which is quite a few more than the Baskin’ Robbins boast of 31. This may be the most backwards new years resolution, but I am confident our active little family can handle the challenge!
