Over the weekend, it was so hot and humid here in Florida. The days are long and temperatures are now in the mid 80's by lunch time. I can only stand to be outside for a short time before I start to get uncomfortably hot. What better way to cool down than ice cream? On Sunday afternoon I tried my first attempt at homemade ice cream. I was pleasantly surprised by the subtle vanilla bean flavor and the perfect texture. It was delicious! I know my ice cream maker will be getting a lot of use this summer. I can't wait to try different flavors. Next on my list; mint chocolate chip and coffee ice cream. E-mail me if you'd like the recipe I used.
