  • Some of these recipes are so lame...... I would rather buy Breyer's when it is $2.50 or $3.00 on sale and just do without the rest of the time. The ice cream I like is made with REAL CREAM and real vanilla beans and quality chocolate. lol Sorry, but you lost me on this one. Okay, I do love home made ice cream, but it is expensive and can not afford to make it any longer.
