Mo Fo 20

The Icecream Book Post.

Those of you in the Southern Hemisphere heading into summer have been waiting for this one haven't you!!
I have two ice cream specific cook books, which I received after getting a wonderful icecream machine with Airmiles the summer before last. (which if you are a long term reader you may remember).
I tried to try some of the recipes in both books - I did a Vanilla Icecream show down and a Chocolate Icecream showdown, made pistachio icecream, cookie dough icecream, mint chocolate chip icecream, berry icecream, banana icecream, but you know what, my kids only want vanilla and they only want me to use the recipe in Veganomicon. (Which I mentioned earlier in the month) So to The Vegan Scoop by Wheeler Del Torro, and Lick It! by Cathe Olson, I can only say "sorry, but I am keeping your books for when my children grow more adventuresome palates because your books are great and very creative!"

I have an ice cream maker, but I don't have either of these books. I'll have to look them up at the library and see what I think. I don't make ice cream all that often, but maybe i would if I had a little more inspiration.

Andy and I are in the process of comparing ice cream makers and looking for the best deal, and when we actually definitively buy one, I'm totally buying Vegan Scoop. I've heard nothing but good things about it, and since we are heading into summer, I really want!
