TWD: Vanilla Ice Cream
I'm in with the 29% of folks who call vanilla their favorite ice cream (number one flavor, baby!). So I was pretty psyched when Lynne of Cafe LynnyLu decided on Vanilla Ice Cream for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe. Thanks Lynne!
Of course, there are probably as many ice cream flavors as there are stars in the sky (Viagra ice cream, anyone?). But plain old vanilla is just fine with me.
There's something about just-churned, home-made ice cream that almost brings a tear to my eye... it's a thing of beauty, isn't it?
And when it tastes as good as Dorie's, well, you might as well bring on the cryin' towels. This ice cream was so rich and flavorful. My kids and I did a side-by-side taste test with the local "best" vanilla ice cream and the "best" suddenly tasted "bland".
Please do yourself a favor and check out Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours", or stop by Lynne's blog for the recipe. You'll thank me (or rather, Dorie), I promise.
OK, see you next week!
P.S. I can't help but wonder, what does Viagra taste like anyway?
