Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.
Growing up in New Jersey, whenever we’d go to a coffee shop or diner, the server would ask what sounded like, ” ya want cawfee hon”? Some of us still sound this way, even after having lived in Texas for a gazillion years, Right Maddie? (my sister… we still have cawfee together via face time many a Sunday morning) You just HAVE to say Hon after the word coffee. Sorry, you just DO. It’s ingrained.
I’ve posted about my amazingly wonderful ice cream maker before, ( a DeLonghi with built in refrigeration) and it’s getting to be ice cream season again. I made some last night, and ummmmm ummmm. It really hit the spot.
Follow your ice cream maker directions, but here’s what I used to make 6-8 small ( a little more than a scoop) portions.
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 c of skim milk
about 1 1/2 T instant coffee if you like a stronger coffee flavor, add a little more. This amount is fairly strong.
1/2-2/3 c sugar, depending on the sweetness level you like. I don’t like really sweet, so I tend to go more towards the 1/2 c, maybe a tad more.
1/2 c or so chocolate chips are optional- add this after the ice cream has thickened a bit.
Mix all ingredients except for optional chips. Follow your ice cream makers directions. Add chips when ice cream thickens if desired.
