News of the Day

If you follow my Facebook page, you'll have noticed that I'm obsessed with ice cream lately.

I could blame this obsession on the arrival of warm summer weather but the truth is that I love ice cream all the time, even in the middle of winter.  

There's something about ice cream that just makes me happy.  I love to eat it, and to make it; trying new recipes like the Rhubarb Custard Ice Cream pictured here.

I do love the arrival of summer because my blogging friends share their ice cream recipes on line.  Pinterest is an ice cream wonderland these days, and a great many ice cream posts are showing up in my RSS feed.  Nirvana for a girl like me!

My afternoon has been spent quite enjoyably, reading ice cream recipes from far and wide and trying to narrow down my choices to a few I can feature here.  It hasn't been easy to make these choices, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!  ;)

I can see I'll be getting the ice cream maker out again very soon!

Sumptuous Spoonfuls has been thinking ice cream too and has shared several interesting links on their Facebook page today.  Two, in particular, caught my eye:

The first was this Sweet Corn Ice Cream With Salted Caramel Sauce.
I imagine it would taste like Poppycock.  I love Poppycock!

The second was this one:  Creamy Dark Chocolate Milk Stout Ice Cream.
I mean, really, how could that be bad?

The photo of this Berry Cheesecake Ice Cream by Call Me Cupcake had me before I even read the recipe.
Isn't it beautiful?  

I can hardly wait until our wild blackberries ripen.
I plan to use them to make this.  

I'll be visiting this blog again, just because of the photos.

This strawberry sherbet from She Wears Many Hats isn't ice cream
but it's close enough for me.

I can just imagine how fresh this flavour must be!

If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can still make ice cream.

This recipe has been making the rounds on line lately.  I'm seeing it everywhere but Kevin and Amanda have made the best post about it I've seen so far

Kevin and Amanda offer not only the basic recipe but a number of interesting variations on the theme.  

Any of the variations could be adapted for use in a more conventional ice cream too

and, of course, all of these ice creams could be made into ice cream sandwiches, like these beautiful treats from Annie's Eats.

Do you scream for ice cream?

I do!

Yum! I saw that easy ice-cream recipe making the rounds and I love the variations from Kevin and Amanda - who wouldn't love Krispy Kreme ice-cream?

I know! Pure genius? I'll be making that one for sure. :)

Wow - all of those sound super yummy!

They do, don't they? Hard to resist. :)
