The Only Ice Cream Recipe You'll Ever Need?

My dad sent this link to me the other day. Titled "The Only Ice Cream Recipe You'll Ever Need," it immediately caught my eye. I finally got to watch it. I have three cups of black raspberries in my freezer and I just watched the video (see below) and checked out the recipe to see if this is how I want to use my raspberries.

Frankly, I am not sure.

I have a recipe I love. It's from The Ultimate Frozen Dessert Book by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough. It's the recipe they have for Raspberry Gelato, which I have altered slightly. It's gorgeously colored and amazingly tasty.

That being said, I do want to try this recipe, if only to see if it lives up to its hype.

But to waste this season's only three cups of black raspberries on something I don't know to be good, when I have something completely trustworthy on my bookshelf?

I think I'll visit this recipe again with something not so "precious" to me.

I'll report back when I do try that recipe.

In the meantime, do follow through with watching the video -- it's really quite informative -- and head on over to the article for a great chart. Melissa Clark gives her viewers/readers the basics and the rules and then invites them to break them and adjust accordingly. That's fair and worth some experimenting with (albeit with some less precious commodities)!

Rocky Road: The Movie

Yes, seriously. A movie called Rocky Road about ice cream! We like ice cream and we like movies, that's why we were pretty excited to hear about this new flick.

Sunday, July 20 is National Ice Cream Day and also the premiere of UP's original Rocky Road. Head over to your UP channel and tune in at 8PM. 

We can't tell you how it will be, but it looks like a sweet (yes, pun intended) story about a wall street banker who gets laid off, moves home, and drives an ice cream truck. Could be kind of cheesy, but it's ice cream and movies and it's on the UP network, which means it promises to be "uplifting." (Don't know what UP is? I didn't either. Check it out here.) I'll try to catch it, because if it makes you happy, even cheesy can be good!

And it stars Mark Salling of Glee fame, if that catches anyone's fancy.

But as LaVar Burton would say, "You don't have to take my word for it!"* Check out the preview below.

*On a non-ice cream note, if this quote is lost on you or if brings back fond memories, head over to Kickstarter to see how Burton is bringing his signature line! Whee!
