seidskratti: Cowboy scientist riding a protozoan. (SCIENCE!)
It feels like summer here in the Southern US and other parts of the Northern Hemisphere, so that means it's ice cream time! My mother has a 2qt Cuisinart ice cream maker which she kindly allows me to use, and I love the thing. It makes delicious, smooth homemade ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogurt, frozen custard , etc., usually in under an hour. Sometimes in under half an hour. Great investment if you like the frozen desserts.

Past experiments have included a dairy-free dark chocolate pomegranate sorbet and a butter-pecan frozen custard that was almost too rich to eat. It not only stood on its own, it pulled out a buttery switchblade and threatened other flavors to back off. It was still delicious, though, and making the butter pecans was fun (I might re-do that recipe this year to make it a little lower-fat. I'll try and post that if I get around to it.)

Today, though, I was trying to make something to please my parents, since it was their kitchen I was sabotaging (and did I ever). I settled on something with chocolate and coffee, since they're both coffee fans. I also had to do a bit of improvising with ingredients, but it was super-easy and turned out well.
