Yeah, ice cream is pretty great. What are your favorite flavors, and how do you like your ice cream? Unadorned? Dripping with fudge? Chunky? Smooth? Sound off below and see a few more recipes too...
Ice cream really is an ideal dessert because it needs to be made in advance - easy and low-stress for dinner parties. Plus people tend to go slightly crazy when you pull homemade ice cream out of the freezer; it's so easy, but it makes a big impression.
We are raving fans of simple ice creams made with slightly different dairy products - like this Watermelon Sundae with Ricotta Ice Cream from Gourmet. The ice cream has a slightly grainy texture that is strange at first and then becomes quickly addictive. Paired with watermelon it's sublime. We also like the classic Southern Buttermilk Sherbet which is always smooth, silky, and refreshing.
