It's been a while since I've posted an ice cream recipe. Oh, don't get me wrong, I have made ice cream since that last time, I just haven't gotten a good picture of it or made anything different. I thought it was about time to change that, though, especially since the rest of the country is starting to cool down. I wanted to get this in before the summer is over for most of you. Although we are in no danger of that happening any time soon around here. The desert is still hot and dry and it doesn't feel like fall is around the corner at all! Oh well.. that's why there is ice cream, right? To help us forget (at least for a short time) how hot it really is!
