stages of recuperation

How do you successfully recuperate after the most stressful 5 days EVER??

make homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream! mmmduh!

It is sincerely as amazing as Baskin Robbin's R.P.B.C. ice cream and infinitely cheaper seeing as how I didn't have to go to the grocery store for a THING. Yeah! I had Reese's on hand! By the way do you call them REE-SEES or REE-says or plain and simple Reese's? It really depends on the day for me. If in conjunction with Piece's it's totally Ree-sees Pee-sees and NEVER Ree-says Pee-says (lulz!). I think it stems from childhood though... interesting thought hmm?

Seriously guys you need to start making ice cream. I've become the type of girl that will literally whip up a batch of ice cream before she goes to work (prime example? YESTERDAY!) because it's THAT easy.

Start off with vanilla - it takes virtually no time AND no cooking over the stove. Granted I totally started with double dark chocolate sorbet from joy the baker but i don't make any sense in real life.

To make vanilla ice cream you literally need 6 super cheap ingredients:
via Label Box and Pudding Camera (a free awesome camera tip from d+s)
I also used a pinch of salt (I measure with my hand... make sure it fills the tiny inside of your hand which is about 1/8th of a teaspoon) and then whatever mix-in you want! chocolate chips, reese's, cut up snickers, nuts anything!
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
combine in a large bowl until the sugar and vanilla are fully incorporated and pour into your ice cream maker while it is turned on. add mix-in's the last 5 minutes of churning process (so the 25 minute mark out of 30). and VOILA! ice cream for the eatin'

all you need is an ice cream maker and i have a confession to make... i got mine at ALDI. If you've ever been to aldi you KNOW they have seasonal crazy stuff. like, "oh yeah i financed my house through aldi they had a broker there for a week and a half." or, "yeah this swing-set AND kitchen set came from aldi during thanksgiving!" they just have awesome stuff that appears and disappears haha. So you don't have to use a Cuisinart (but if you do more power to you!) or a Kitchenaid just obtain. ice cream. maker. and start whippin' up the treats!

So far I have made Butter Pecan (three times!), double dark chocolate sorbet, vanilla, reese's and mint chocolate chip. um ALL of them were frickin amazing. If marriage had resume requirements this would TOTALLY go on it. "makes homemade ice cream" i might make a marriage resume HAHA you never know with this blog i just DO stuff.

p.s. - i made a little video out of jon and jayme opening their wedding presents to each other before the wedding. it is SO super cute. also this is totally a RINGING endorsement for iMovie. love it SO bad.
