disappearing ice cream coneWho says ice cream is just a summer treat? Certainly not my husband, who loves to eat a big bowl of ice cream every night. It can be snowing, wind blowing and 5 degrees outside, but that doesn't matter to him. He just really loves his ice cream.

I have never made homemade ice cream, though I think I will try now, since I found some neat homemade ice cream in a bag recipes at Kaboose. All you need is a pint size Ziploc bag, a gallon size Ziploc bag, milk or half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, rock salt, ice cubes and a child who is willing to shake the bags for 5 minutes. Okay, so you don't need the child, but let them get in on the fun too!

I think experimentation is the key here, but only try different flavors once you get the hang of the shake down and perfect ice cream is made at every attempt. I love chocolate mint, so that would be my first try, after I tried Kaboose's ice cream recipe for my husband, of course! What homemade ice cream recipes have you tried? Please feel free to share them in the comments.
