I don't know what I'd do without my ice cream maker. My sweet tooth can be pretty demanding at times and lucky for me, all the ingredients are usually in my home or just a quick trip away!
I used to be afraid to try and make my own ice cream because I thought that it involved lots of hand churning, tempering of eggs and hours upon hours of time. Not the case. All you need to do is mix the ingredients, turn on the machine and wait about 30 minutes (that's the hardest part). The machines even come with all the recipes you'll need!
