My friend Marsha at First Things First sent this awesome link from King Arthur Flour: Cool! Easy homemade ice cream. In particular, I was taken by recipes for Tart Cherry Ice Cream and Pineapple-Coconut Gelato (Pina Colada, anyone?!), but whether you like fruit or chocolate, sorbet or ice cream, they've got you covered!
They also discuss ice cream makers, and have a strong (positive) opinion for the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker: "We’ve tested other brands, and other models; and we’ve found the Cuisinart offers the best balance between performance and price." Of course, at first I thought, "Of course they do, because they sell it and want us to buy it," but then it occurred to me that they aren't the manufacturer and they probably did test a lot to figure out just which one they wanted to sell at their store.
I've always loved King Arthur Flour (can I just tell you how fun -- and dangerous to my wallet) it was when Jenn and I took a pilgrimage to The Baker's Store last year? And thank you Stacey for introducing me to it all those years ago. Anyway, this post and their dedicated section to ice cream making supplies and ingredients made me love them a little bit more (if possible)...
