Vanilla ice cream!

Gosh were have all the days gone?! I can't believe I graduated two weeks ago!

Since then, all I've really done is watched a lot of tv, spent time with my family, worked as an aide at summer preschool, and ate a lot of yummy food!

Speaking of food, I'm like OBSESSED with ice cream! I would eat it for every meal if I could. x0 So today, my mom asked if I wanted to try to make homemade ice cream, and I of course said "YES!!!" We decided to make plain ole vanilla to start off, and if we liked it we would try other flavors later. Not only did I like it, I LOOOOVED it! It was so thick and creamy, like a custard! It was delicious! I can't wait to make more ice cream, and hopefully bake some more stuff soon! : )

So if you just want to have some simple, but tasty vanilla ice cream here you go!!


3/4 cup sugar

1/8 tsp salt

1 3/4 cups whole milk (we used half and half)

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

(Haha I hope I remembered that correctly!) x0

1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, salt, and milk. Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until mixture is almost boiling. Reduce heat to low.
2. In medium bowl, slightly beat eggs. Slowly whisk half of the hot mixture into the eggs and pour back into saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until slightly thick. Remove from heat and refrigerate for two hours.
3. When ready to freeze, stir in heavy cream and vanilla extract into the chilled custard mixture. Start ice cream maker and pour mixture through hole in lid. Freeze until you just can't wait any longer!

I had a nice big bowl of tasty ice cream, covered in chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, and half a peanut butter twix bar (my favorite!) : )

I love you all, and sorry I don't post haha I will try harder I swear!!
