When you stop doing things for fun you might as well be dead.
Sometimes products are totally interchangeable. That is not the case for me when it comes to balsamic vinegar. I will drive all the way to Williams-Sonoma and shell out the extra $15 just for this luscious product.
Oliver’s Balsamic Vinegar is the thickest vinegar I have ever purchased, and it is the perfect mixture of sweet and bitter. My favorite way to enjoy it is over summer tomatoes, but it also goes nicely with fresh strawberries.
While in the store, I couldn’t help but spot another tasty treat, Mint Chip Ice Cream Starter.
I couldn’t wait to try it out. My KitchenAid Mixer has so many amazing attachments to make life easier in the kitchen, but my favorite is the Ice Cream Maker!
The bowl has to sit in the freezer for at least fifteen hours, but after that you can enjoy ice cream within thirty minutes. I started by mixing my Mint Chip Ice Cream Starter with 1 ½ cups cream and 1 ½ cups half and half.
The attachments fit easily to the mixer. Then after pouring the cream mixture into the bowl, you leave the setting on stir for thirty minutes.
That’s it! It is so easy to enjoy your favorite ice cream on a summer day.
I have to admit the Mint Chip ice cream hit the spot tonight. There is something about mint desserts that I can’t get enough of. Your mouth is left feeling so refreshed and satisfied.
The ice cream might have been a little too easy to make tonight. I’m glad Williams-Sonoma didn’t have any of their pumpkin ice cream available when I went in.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
