What is no churn ice cream?

No churn ice cream is ice cream that you don’t have to churn, meaning you don’t need an ice cream maker. All you need is either a hand mixer or a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. The cream is beaten to stiff peaks and the sweetened condensed milk and add ins are folded in. It takes 10 minutes or less to prep this ice cream before freezing it, simplicity at it’s finest!

Let’s talk honey – What type to use and How much?

Honey is one thing I grew up on. Really. My parents shove it down my throat everytime I caught a cold and trust me, I do that to my kids now. 😛

My parents used to have a honey hive and I have seen folks extracting fresh honey and I wish I could describe the taste of freshly squeezed honey. Pure, unprocessed and untouched.

I used 1/2 cup honey in this Honey Ice cream recipe.

I also used a local honey in this recipe. One of my favorite thing is to go to the farmers market and buy fresh local honey. But you can use some any good quality organic honey.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
