When you get a new phone, don’t you just like play with it all day? Even if it’s not a fancy smart phone..just a regular plain old phone. Then again, I feel like I’m the only person who doesn’t have a smart phone.

Maybe I’m the only one.

Come to think of it, I do the same thing with lots of other things. Like new clothes, when I get home from shopping I try on all my new clothes when I get home. Sometimes I even do it TWICE…Is this normal?

When I was little I would always smell my new shoes. That is weird. I know. But I have learned the ways of being older and slightly more mature.

Now I play with my ice cream maker. :-)

To be honest, I was kind of disappointed in myself after my first batch of ice cream. It kind of made me a teeny bit scared that I had wasted that much money on an ice cream maker that makes icy ice cream. Well let me tell you, I am SO relieved that I gave it a second chance. This ice cream is unbelievably creamy and delicious. I was shocked when I took my first bite, “I really made this?!”. Give it a shot!

Cookies ‘N Cream Ice Cream (minty twist)

(adapted from Sweet Tooth)

(makes 2 quarts)

1 1/2 c. whole milk

1 c. plus 2 T. white sugar

3 c. heavy cream

1 T. vanilla

15 cookies, crushed (be creative! I used Andes mint cookies, because I didn’t have Oreos. Do whatever you feel like!)

  1. Make sure your ice cream maker is in the freezer for at least 24 hours before starting this recipe.
  2. Stir the milk and sugar together in a medium-sized bowl until the sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
  3. Mix in the cream and vanilla
  4. Pour the mixture into the ice cream machine and let it run for the manufacturer’s recommended time. Add the crushed cookies in about 5 minutes before the time is up.
  5. Put the ice cream in the freezer to firm up completely for a couple hours.

  1. I still do the same thing when I buy new clothes and a new phone. Haven’t grown out of it yet. :) I don’t have an ice cream maker, but I just may have to borrow my sister’s one of these days and give it a shot. :) Looks tasty!
