I thought not having our chef daughter home for the summer meant no culinary temptations to expand the waistline I’ve worked so hard to shrink. Little did I know my oldest son would became the ice cream wizard at our house!
We have loved our little ice cream maker since the kids gave it to us a couple of years ago. We’ve used it a lot, but this summer it as been going almost non-stop under our college son’s supervision. He’s made us vanilla ice cream, cookies and cream ice cream, and cookie dough ice cream so far. I have no idea what’s in store for us next, I only know that every time he makes it, it comes out perfect.
And so I indulge. Small scoops, to be sure, but ones that still require me to put more effort into gym time these days. A small price to pay for ice cream this good.
