From my love. He knows me so well. Well actually I just gave him a list of everything I wanted and where to get it so I did make it pretty easy for him. But still, he knows me so well :)
I HAD to get started with some ice cream recipes as soon as I got it. I ordered some ice cream cookbooks, The Perfect Scoop and Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book. Then I had PJ pick out the first recipe I'd make in my brand new PINK Cuisinart ice cream maker.
He chose.... drum roll please....
Peanut Butter Ice Cream!
Ok then, I got this.
The recipe was easy enough. No eggs, very basic. Anyone can do it, really. Who knew ice cream could be this easy??
I was in total awe when I checked after about 10 minutes in the ice cream maker and it was already the consistency of ice cream. Those things are magic, I tell you.
I need to learn the art of ice cream scooping though. With time, friends, with time.
