buy an icecream maker

I got an ice cream maker. I think I am obsessed. How is it that making ice cream is easier than baking cookies?

The first batch I did was banana-buttermilk ice cream, but I added two handfuls of chocolate chips. Amazing. I also cut the sugar in half. The taste? Unreal. The consistency isn't like store bought ice cream, it melts in your mouth a bit more, but still. Ice cream.

The lady who writes bakingsheet just put up a caramelized banana ice cream. Insanitude.

Speaking of which - wtf!

excellent ice cream maker idea: coconut milk.
by itself with some sugar, or with lime juice (amazing!) or anything else, really.

rosemary ice cream? hmm... i remember you
baking a rosemary bread when we were roommates that was awesome. i think the reason i didn't cook this much then is because we all subsisted primarily on pasta with pesto.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
