When I was in Jr. High, every day I came home from school and made a bowl of vanilla ice cream with lots of chocolate syrup and nut topping. Every day. I still love ice cream that way.
In high school, I often bought a container of Haagendaz coffee ice cream and ate it straight from the carton with a spoon.
When I was pregnant with my third son, I made trips to the small grocery near our house so often for the same Ben & Jerry’s flavor that one man who worked in the store got on the loud speaker and announced “Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz” as I walked in. Caught!
Since then, I’ve gone all-in for Mayfield Dairy, Blue Bell, Graeter’s and more. It’s rare that we don’t have some kind of ice cream in the freezer. And I always have the bowls for my counter-top ice cream makers frozen and ready to go anytime we want to make homemade ice cream.
If you love ice cream, please join us this afternoon at 4pm Eastern for a live chat on all things ice cream! I’ll be here, along with Kasey from Time 2 $ave, Rachel from Following in My Shoes, Stephanie from Debt Free Spending. Join us by scrolling to the bottom of this post. You’ll see the chat box there.
But before we start chatting, I have a list of some of our favorite homemade flavors and recipes. There’s also a list of recipes using store-bought ice cream.
Have some delicious fun browsing! [Read more…]
