Can Ice Cream Change Your Life?
I love appliances. If my house was bigger, I'd have a lot more of them. In fact, on my wish list is a bread maker and a juicer. More than my love for appliances is my love of ice cream. Combine them together and what do you get? An ice cream maker! Last year, my husband and I bought this one as our anniversary gift to each other. Not very romantic, but very practical (perfect way to describe me!). We've tried out a few concoctions such as Chocolate Habanero and Cinnamon Heath Bar. But last week, I discovered the recipe for the MOST amazing ice cream I've ever eaten (and I eat A LOT of ice cream). It was Salted Vanilla and Brownie. I started with the recipe from David Lebovitz, who wrote The Perfect Scoop (currently in my cart at Amazon.com), and made a few modifications (only used half of a vanilla bean, added a dash more salt, accidentally combined steps four and five, and added bites of boxed brownies). My husband and I sat on the couch gobbling up our bowl and cone (respectively) of ice cream in complete bliss. About halfway through my cone, I realized I wanted to blog about this experience. Here is what was left (and then devoured a few seconds later).
The answer to my title question is yes. Not only will I compare all future ice cream to this one, but this flavor could make me my first million.
So, watch out Ben and Jerry's, Baskin Robbins, and Cold Stone. I may just take the ice cream world by storm.
