Homemade Icecream - Recipe

It seems that I am not the only one who has been craving the taste of creamy homemade ice-cream. Thanks to all those who have let me know that you loved the look of my recent cooking efforts. I thought I would share the recipe with you all so that you can enjoy too.

Homemade No Churn Ice Cream

  • 1 x 395g Tin Condensed Milk
  • 600ml of Thickened Cream
  • Flavourings and toppings of your choice
Pour cream and condensed milk into bowl of mix master and whip on medium until soft peaks form. Using a spatula fold in flavourings. Transfer to an airtight continuer and freeze overnight. Makes 1.2L.

Flavour Option 1 - Rum N Raisin

  • ⅓ cup of rum or bourbon
  • ½ Cup of raisins or sultanas
  • 1 Tbs of instant coffee powder dissolved in 2 Tbs of billing water
Leave raisins soaking in rum overnight or for at least 4 hours. You ant the raisins too be plump and have soaked up the liquid from the rum.

Once cream and condescend milk have been whipped, stir in raisins and coffee. Transfer to airtight container and freeze.

Flavour Option 2 - Mint Choc Chip

  • 1 x 200g Block of dark chocolate
  • 1 x 45g bar of Peppermint Crisp
Break dark chocolate into small pieces. I cut each square into quarters. Finely slice Peppermint Crisp Bar till you have a pile of shavings. Stir both through cream mixture and transfer to airtight container and freeze overnight.

Other Options

  • Fresh,  tinned or frozen fruit - swirled through
  • Honeycomb - either bought or homemade
  • Liquer - stir through a couple of Tbs of favourite liquor and add complimentary fruit
  • Chocolate ganache swirl - Make chocolate ganache and swirl through

The thoughts are endless. I will keep you updated on my versions as summer continues.

Happy cooking.

Thoughts and Feelings

Hi all,

It's such a great feeling to know that I have a place to to put my thoughts. Whether anyone reads them, or takes them on board, isn't really the point. It's about a safe place to download and share. The good, the bad, the exciting and the ugly.

While those close to me will know that the last 12 months have been tough and the last 6 more so, others will probably not have noticed a change in the business as usual version of me.  (aside from a lack of posting anything). Up until recently, I prided myself on that. On projecting that veneer to the world that everything is ok. But honestly inside I am sad. And it made me realise that we put on this veneer, this mask as if being the real version of ourselves would not be liked and accepted. That people would shun us and think less of us for showing our really feelings and our real lives.

In this day of social media and the desire to share the best bits of our lives with everyone (those we know and those we don't), have w…

Crushing on....

Do you ever get so obsessed with something that it's all you can think about? For an example a song, a dress, a culture or a food. I do. A lot. So I thought to help my obsession or to maybe even get me over my current obsessions I thought I would share them.

Food - Avocado and Feta Mash. Simple and oh so tasty. Just mash an avocado together with crumbled feta  Serve on toast, with tortilla chips, as a dish with poached eggs. Almost anywhere. Try adding extras like lemon juice, chopped tomatoes or fresh herbs. If you are in Melbourne head to Moulin Noir in Port Melbourne who do a mean version.Movie - So I am going to cheat here and go with a franchise of AMAZING movies. Fast & The Furious. Absolutely obsessed with these. and there is a new one out, Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,  fast cars and non stop action. Do I need to say more? Looking forward to seeing it this weekSong - Oh so hard to pick one but going with my movie theme it would have to be We Own It by 2…
