With the Blue Bell crisis occurring, I figure most people are going through ice cream withdraws. I know my fellow Texans are losing their minds trying to figure out what to serve with their Summer cobblers, birthday cakes, or deep fried Twinkies. So, I scrounged around the internet to gather a few homemade ice cream recipes that sound wonderful.
The first recipe I came across was on a fellow bloggers feed. Love & Olive Oil's Lemon Meringue Ice Cream recipe was not for the faint hearted. Its bold lemony flavor whipped with sugary meringue will not leave you disappointed, but like Love & Olive Oil warns, "Disclaimer: this ice cream is for serious lemon lovers only."
For those who don't prefer extreme lemon and sugar, try breaking up the flavors by adding broken gram crackers. The crackers also add a nice level of texture to the ice cream.
When I found the next recipe it was a must have! I refused to let this one go without trying. I was not disappointed. Joy Wilson knows what she is bringing to the table, and dear God I hope it is more of this blueberry cheesecake ice cream! Her blog JTB leaves nothing to be desired.
I would place a cooking tip or hint here for this ice cream, but what is the use...It was so good. Well done JTB, well done my friend!
The last recipe I found was from the Southern Living website. A Peach and Toasted Pecan Ice Cream recipe.
Of course, the Southern Living site has many ice cream recipes and the link above has 24 awesome flavors to add to the Peach and Toasted Pecan, but the idea of fresh picked peaches and fresh shelled pecans wrapped up in a homemade ice cream sounds like the most amazing thing for a hot Summer day.
I hope you all enjoyed my first post. I can't wait to start my next food trial. Have fun brown baggin with a silver spoon!
