TWD - Vanilla Icecream


For a change of pace this week, the Tuesdays with Dorie group are making Vanilla Icecream at the selection of this week's host, Lynne of Cafe Lynnylu.

Previously, I had wondered why anyone would make their own vanilla icecream when you can readily buy quality icecream in this flavour. However, this icecream recipe informed me why - it is truly one of the most delicious, creamy icecreams that I have ever tasted. I only made a half batch but wished I had made the full batch - I enjoyed this, and ate it all very quickly.

Thanks to our host, Lynne, for broadening my mind on the icecream making front. To see what the other TWD members thought of this icecream, check out the TWD blogroll.

Good stuff, isn't it? I love the versatility of home made ice cream and it's fun for my little guys to help. Nice job!

Homemade vanilla ice cream is fabulous.

Leslie said...

I know! Me too! You think about the expression "plain vanilla" and it evokes the "nothing special" response. But this one was spectacular. I love how you served yours...so cute!

SiHaN said...

I don't think I'll ever purchase vanilla ice cream again.

This is just way to good.

Vanilla ice cream is one of my favorites because it is so versatile. You can eat it by itself , put some berries or have it with chocolate ganache. Can't wait to try this recipe myself, ice cream maker is waiting to churn!

Mmmhhh, delicious and surely tastier and healthier than any of the store-bought ones!

Cheers,
