  8. Such good timing Dorothy! The kids just finished up the last of the ice cream in the freezer and I was going to look for something new to make tomorrow. Hmmmm, Spicy Chocolate or Peanut Butter Brownie Swirl or Butter pecan, or Lemon or Key Lime….I hate making decisions, maybe I’d be better off just putting them in the order I’ll be making them!

  9. Ice cream is probably my all around favorite treat. Even though we have an ice cream maker I’ve never used it so these are perfect! There is no way I could pick one favorite though. No way. Who knew there were so many options?! I can’t wait to try some, thank you SO much for rounding them all up! Our 85 degree weather just became good in my mind.

  10. Fantastic round up, Dorothy! I’ve debated getting an ice cream machine. I think this is even more reason to wait on that. This is so making me want summer to get here already!

  14. I Absolutely LOVED pumpkin ice cream! Especally during fall, and the hollidays (thanksgiving and christmas) and dorothy you forgot to add your version of “AVOCADO” ice cream ( remeber you re-posted the recipe for “Cinco De Mayo”? I’m sure we’re gonna be needing that recipe for the summer, too.

  24. Wow this is very exciting because I do not (despite my constant hinting) have an ice cream maker. Please no complaining about the heat. It was very cool (like I wore a winter cardigan to work today) here in the Northeast. Thanks look forward to trying these. My family love, love ice cream!

  25. They all look amazing, Dorothy. But that Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream really stands out to me!

  32. Dorothy, You can also. turn that Avocado frosting into ice cream…just freeze it. Also, I brought these coconut cream filled cookies at the Dollar tree® store. They’re like little golden Oreos® except, they’re filled with coconut flavored cream. They are verry good. ;-)

  33. What a great year of recipes :) Happy 2014!

  35. I swear I was just on my way to get the ice-cream machine when I saw this – I stopped in my tracks. I think i’ll try Peanut Butter Brownie Batter Swirl first… or maybe Nutter Butter… or Strawberry Cheesecake, but any will do with this 42 degree C Pakistani weather :)
