i scream ...

you scream .. we ALL scream for ICECREAM! :D
& we all scream because i completed #73 from my 101 list! :)

while i was in connecticut (yes, WEEKS ago) i took advantage of my nana's kitchen-aide stand alone mixer! i stole this recipe from caterpillar family [click here to see her icecream post!] and kevin&amanda!

making homemade icecream is something i've wanted to do for a while now but i haven't invested in an icecream making machine so i knew it wouldn't happen for a while. that is, until i saw jessi's post! icecream WITHOUT the machine? whaaaaat?!! i knew the minute i saw her post that i was going to HAVE to try this out! UNFORTUNATELY - i do not have a stand alone mixer. [not that it's REQUIRED but who wants to stand around with a hand mixer and beat stiff peaks? .. COUGH COUGH HUSBAND!] so, i couldn't WAIT to get to connecticut and take advantage of my nana's mixer! we ran to the store and got our ingredients and i was ready to go!

and the best part? well - aside from making your OWN icecream however you want it - all you need is 2 cups of heavy cream and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk!!! whaaaat?? that's cheaper than a carton of icecream when it's ON SALE!!!

so pour your heavy cream into your bowl - and mix until stiff peaks form!

next - add whatever you want to the sweetened condensed milk and then mix in with the heavy cream.
[we just wanted to make vanilla - so i added 1tbsp vanilla flavoring]

i put in a bowl and let freeze! of course - my family [and myself, hehe] couldn't WAIT to have some - so we ate it that night and it was a litttttle runny. almost like a milkshake consistency. but after freezing the entire day after - it was the PERFECT consistancy! unfortunately - this was ALL that was left [and i doubled the batch!] the next day!!!

neeeedless to say - i NEEEEEED me a stand-alone mixer!!! i want to make this again SO bad!!! i even might stand there for 5 or so minutes with a hand mixer just to be able to make whateverrrrr kind of icecream i want. i REALLLLLY want to try the krispie kreme icecream that kevin&amanda mentioned! OMG, could you IMAGINE! drool!!!!!

and HELLO to anyone stopping by from Mingle Monday! :)

Looks so good!!! My mom got her stand a lone mixer a long time aggo but she found it like new at a pawn shop for CHEAP {which is a good thing since they are like $400}!! Keep your eye out on QVC too because they sometimes do 3 easy payments on them.

It's funny to read this post today. I made homemade soursop ice cream last night. Homemade is the best way to go!
