Food on Fridays: Homemade Ice Cream Help

fof(smaller button below)

Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. If you want to talk about the shriveled, forgotten cucumber plucked from your garden, that’s great. Posts like that are as welcome as menus and recipes.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually.Then plug your name and link into Linky Tools.

Food on Fridays with Ann

The Belgian Wonder received an ice cream maker for his birthday.We haven’t tried it out yet, but we need to before the crisp autumn wind blows in.What’s slowing us down is that we are in search of an ice cream recipe that friends will rave about on Facebook…a recipe that guests will beg for when they stay overnight…a recipe that will make a grown man cry.If you have a recipe that powerful, however, I understand if you don’t want to share it publicly.If so, please e-mail me privately. Some people don’t want to give away their secret family recipes to the World Wide Web, and I respect that. I can be discreet.If, however, you don’t mind spreading the ice cream love, bring it on! Comments are open for links and instructions.

    1. Here is my basic vanilla. I have turned it into peppermint stick and added all sorts of fruits & other add ins. It’s fabulous by itself, too. I have also doubled it with good results. Good luck!

        Has it made a grown man cry? The peppermint stick version might make *me* cry! Thanks for the recipe and your encouragement–and for linking to Food on Fridays.

        I’ll visit your thumbprint cookies tomorrow, but I had to smile when I saw your link. I LOVE making thumbprint cookies at Christmas (or any time). The kids love it, too. So simple, but so yummy!

    2. Hi Annie fofannie and happy friday! I LOVE what you have done with the blog! Very clean and open and friendly! I so need to get me an icecream maker too! There are quite a few great recipes circulating, but alas, I have no maker! I will just have to settle for Broiled Grapefruit for dessert, which is what I made this week according to a Mark Bittman recipe and it was delicious! :) Alex@amoderatelife

      • annkroeker says:

        Thank you for commenting on my new blog look–I’m very happy. Simplicity fits me. I’m so curious about broiled grapefruit! Need to hop over and pay a visit!

    3. Beautiful new site Ann! I’ve been wanting an ice cream maker all summer. Maybe I can get one on discount as Fall approaches.

    4. Hi Ann – Your blog looks wonderful – it’s a great new look! I still have not had the courage to try making homemade ice cream (yet!), so I’m sorry I can’t help, but the suggestions you have had so far sound great. Have fun trying out the new ice cream maker and have a great weekend!

      • annkroeker says:

        Thank you so much! Chris Cree helped me get the blog over here to its new home. He made it seem so easy–if I’d tried it myself I’d still be messing around with it.

        I have two recipes I’m going to try, but I need to by something like ten quarts of heavy cream!! I’m kidding, but apparently they don’t call it ice CREAM for nothing!

    5. Thanks for hosting! I need to dig out my tried and true ice cream recipe . . . it’s just milk and sugar and vanilla but I don’t remember the ratios.

    6. Hi Ann,
      I’m excited to linking up today! I don’t have a homemade ice cream recipe. But once my neighbors made vanilla ice cream by hand in ziplock bags with the kids — and it was delish! And we had so much fun doing it.

      • annkroeker says:

        I’ve seen ideas like this–one idea I saw one time was some plastic contraption that looked like a hamster ball. Ingredients went inside the ball and kids could roll it around to do the mixing. Very creative, but I’m sure our kids would kick to hard and crack the plastic.

    7. I have two, different yet uniquely wonderful recipes.

      First your basic vanilla, so delicious, it will make and grown man cry.

      Secondly a Cake Batter Ice cream, will make a grown woman cry. MMMM….

      Enjoy trying out the ice cream maker.

    8. I don’t have an ice cream recipe, but I’ll be happy to come over and eat some of that ice cream sometime! I’m getting to work to write my Food on Friday post right now. Link is coming shortly!

      • annkroeker says:

        I’ll get a great recipe going–when it brings a tear to the Belgian Wonder’s eye, I’ll pick up the phone and invite you over!

    9. Ann,
      I just bookmarked this post the other day: 10 recipes for homemade ice cream and wish I had an ice cream maker to test some out! :) Katie

      • annkroeker says:

        What fun–I clicked over and it looks like a lot of these are ideas to try without an ice cream maker!
