A toy! A brand new toy for me!

After what seems like months of looking for the mythical beast that was my mum's ice cream maker (I found the box: empty, of course), I finally bought my own maker (pictured left)


Now I'm waiting for the bowl to freeze so I can make my first batch of ice cream.

I have to stop myself from checking the freezer every couple of hours to see if it is frozen yet.

I'm so impatient.

While I am happy for you, I'm even happier for me because I know that I will be the beneficiary of all the wonderful posts you will put upu about all the incredible ice cream you will be making.

I can't wait to see what you come up with. I wish I could get an ice cream maker. I bought some of the fake stuff at the store (the stuff that isn't made with an anglaise base) and it costs too much!

ooh, and its a CuisineArt to boot. Can't wait to see all the luscious flavors you come up with...mmm maybe something with cardamom for starters?

Oooohh I am so excited for you. I also wanted to make my own ice cream. I am thinking leche flan flavoured variety!

Good for you Jasmine! Congrats! I'm planning on making ice creams all summer. So look out for some recipes!

Hello all

Ivonne--I've mixed my first...ummmm...batter, brine, whatever...I probably won't be able to churn it until tomorrow.

Mochene--I know what you mean. We used to have a really good all-natural brand, but the accountants got a hold of the recipes...at least that's my guess.

Kat--you'll just have to be patient. Let's just say I was inspired by another blogger.

Paz--you know I will. And yes, the muffin recipe is coming.

Chas--once you've tried home-made, it's really hard to go back to store bought. Save up and buy one. Really.

FC&E--Welcome! I'm hoping to inagurate it tomorrow. I'm in Canada, but I paid $80 for the maker with two bowls (I normally see the maker with one bowl for $75-80), so I think I got quite a nice deal.

Sam--Between you, me and Tania, I think we may convince bloggerdom that Canadians do survive on ice cream alone :) I can't wait to see what you come up with.
