Yet another week where I blow it

We've been making ice cream. Lots of it. Three weeks ago, I chose maple ice cream. Two weeks ago the girl picked fresh ginger and white chocolate ice cream. Although I hate white chocolate, this was really good. Really good. The white chocolate just gave it a sweetness. Last week the husband chose lemon ice cream with a caramel swirl. The caramel did not swirl. I need to work on that. Tonight I made the custard for the boy's pick -- espresso ice cream with brownies and toasted almonds. The ice cream will be made tomorrow.

Needless to say, I did not get to the vanilla ice cream. I was planning on it. I even looked at the recipe. And then I just couldn't make anything that called for six egg yolks AND heavy cream AND whole milk. I'm sorry Lynne of Cafe LynnyLu. I'm sure it's amazing ice cream. And I know you have a lovely picture and the recipe on your blog.

I'll be back next week with a banana bundt cake. I promise.

All your other icecreams sound pretty good to me. On to next week!

OK. You're making me want to get an ice cream maker. I have to stop reading now.

Espresso? Brownies? Please tell me you are posting that recipe.

And although I can't stand white chocolate either, I'll bet it was delicious with the ginger. mmmmmm

I wish I had the restraint to not make recipes that called for two cups of cream and six egg yolks (and to not halve them). Espresso brownie ice cream sound amazing.

You are right, it was a bit rich with all those ingredients you listed, but that just means that a smaller portion satisfies faster! Or at least that is how it works with me. Does not work with the guys, however, so you take your chances with this theory if you try it out! See you next week! All the flavors you made on the side were really sounding good as I was reading them...they would be hits around here with one or more of us!

You're really on a roll with ice cream making! The vanilla ice cream recipe was definitely rich.

I don't blame you. Ice cream overkill burn-out. It happens to the best of us!

You rock.
