Food to Love : Homemade Ice Cream

So usually my routine after work goes as follows:

> Sit in traffic for 45 minutes (thank you California).
> Come home.
> Kiss husband.
> Immediately change into my PJs.

We recently watched an episode of some sitcom, where the newly married husband was complaining that his hot wife immediately de-hottens herself when she walks in the door after work. Make-up off, hair up, and comfys on. I get that men may be a little surprised by this, perhaps the husbands of the world were expecting Betty Francis (from Mad Men) to be waiting at the door in pearls. I am not sure. All I know is that I compensate for my PJ attire when I get home with yummy treats... like homemade ice cream.

And it makes him smile, and forget that I am in a pair of torn up boxers ;)

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
This does require a bit of an investment. You will need one of these, but it is so worth it!

1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
pinch salt
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, whisk to combine milk, sugar and salt until sugar is dissolved.
Stir in heavy cream and vanilla.
Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours.

Turn on your ice cream maker and pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl.
Let mix until thickened, about 20 minutes.
If you are planning on adding any extra treats (ie. peanut butter cups, strawberries, or oreos) do so after 15 minutes of mixing.
The ice cream will be soft, so usually, we stick it in the freezer for another 30 minutes or so.
