Definitely 'tis the season for ice cream!
Even better...fresh from your own kitchen, homemade ice cream.
Yummmm....Mocha Pecan Ice Cream.
I made this recently in my new Hamilton Beach 1.5 QT. ice cream maker.
Yes, it is as delish as the photo looks. You can find the recipe here.
And the first of 3 prizes in this month's MRLR giveaway is:
The Hamilton Beach 1.5 Qt. Ice Cream Maker courtesy of Hamilton Beach.
Retail value: $35-40. depending where you buy it.
You can read my full review of this oh so handy small kitchen appliance. And one that will pay for itself in no time if you and your family love ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbets....
And the taste compared to commercial (even gourmet) ice cream, well there is no comparison. Oh so yummy and easy to make too.
