Homemade Banana Pudding Ice Cream

The idea of banana pudding ice cream came about as a way to distract my daughter from her 'Mommy is going to be pregnant soon' thoughts. Having another baby is out of the question so that's not happening anytime soon or ever. We are done with 2. Anyhooo, I figured I'd distract Emma from her 'request' by saying we'll make ice cream last weekend. I told her to pick the flavor she wants since we've ...

Homemade Blueberry Ice Cream

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? According to International Dairy Foods Associations, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed in 1984 that this month is ice cream month and the 3rd Sunday as the National Ice Cream Day. I figured this would be the perfect day to finally write about the homemade blueberry ice cream that, get this, I made last month! I made this right after I wrote about the Chocolate Chips Ice ...

Homemade Chocolate Chips Ice Cream

When my husband asked me last December what I wanted for Christmas I really couldn't think of anything personal that I wanted so badly. I mean of course there are always shoes and bags but during the holidays I think mostly of what our children wants. Christmas is for them. Seeing their happy faces when they open their gifts on Christmas morning is enough for me and my husband. Plus December 31st is my birthday ...

Homemade Peach-Banana Ice Cream

After we were finished with the homemade strawberry ice cream I made peach-banana ice cream next. I was just going to make peach ice cream but I remember my husband saying I should've added banana in the strawberry ice cream. That just sounded so good so I figured the peach-banana combo would be too. And it was. I think the whole family loved this better than the strawberry kind. The peach-banana ice cream complemented the ...

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

One of the gifts I got this Christmas from my husband is the Sunbeam Electric 4Qt. Wooden Ice Cream Maker. I have been wanting one for so long and finally I got one. I was going to make peach ice cream first but my daughter wanted strawberry so I happily obliged. Scott helped me make this first flavor. I made the custard & fruit base then he manhandled the machine, pouring in ice cubes and rock ...

It's Summer. You know what that means, Ice Cream. We love out sporadic trips to Coldstone (expensive) or Dairy Queen but we always have ice cream in the house. We have our favorite flavors but my husband and I are always trying new flavors. Instead of wine tasting, we do ice cream tasting :). So instead of being drunk, we consume calories...hehe. The ice cream flavor this week is Apple Fried Ice ...

The purple ice cream

Actually, in the Philippines this is called Ube ice cream. It's made of sweet purple yam. I bought a half-gallon months ago when I bought my new wok at an Oriental store in Raleigh (NC). It's delicious and the whole family loves it :). Technorati Tags: Ube Ice Cream,Purple Ice Cream,Magnolia Ube Ice Cream,Filipino Ice Cream Flavor,Filipino Desserts
