dreaming of homemade ice cream

You know when you go to restaurants and people say are you a "fruit dessert person" or a "chocolate dessert person"? Well, I'm a neither. I'm an ice cream dessert person. I'd rather have a scoop of simple ice cream over any cake, cookie, fancy molten chocolate thing - you get the idea.

We purchased an ice cream maker so I can make homemade batches. You get my fix every now and then. I posted about an awesome guinness ice cream recipe that we had for a while. I also made a chocolate banana batch. But other than that, we've hardly used it. It's really a shame. It's the easiest ice cream machine ever.

We hired Coolhaus to make ice cream sandwiches for our wedding. Their flavors are so outlandish and amazing (balsamic fig and mascarpone and brown butter with candied bacon are two of my favorites), and I'm newly inspired to whip up some ice cream.
