Homemade ice cream may sound intimidating, but I assure you, it’s completely doable. And SO worth it!

We took the kids out to DQ (okay, not so much homemade but very fun after an evening at the park) and they were completely on cloud 9. They don’t get a lot of sugar on a regular basis so when they do it is a special treat, and very fun.

Needless to say, when I told E I was making ice cream, it is ALL I heard about for the rest of the day.

“Is it ready yet?”

“Mommy…is the ice cream ready?”

“Momma can we eat the ice cream now?”


Unfortunately for her, it isn’t the quickest process, especially when Mommy has to take photographs of it before she can dig in.
