Cool…Sweet…Creamy

and no special equipment needed. Nothing could be simpler than this No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream from the kitchens at Everyday Food. Four ingredients and a 10 minute prep produce a quart and a half of what is sure to be a Summertime “go to”. Start by combining a 14oz. can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of bourbon. In a separate  bowl beat 2 cups of chilled heavy cream to stiff peaks. Using a rubber spatula gently fold the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture until thoroughly combined. Pour into a standard 4 1/2″ x 8 1/2 ” loaf pan, cover with waxed paper or plastic wrap and freeze until firm, approximately 6 hours. That’s it. Done and done. A rich silky vanilla ice cream ready to serve on its own,  doused with some chilled espresso as an Affogato, accompanying a Summer berry shortcake, “floating” in a tall glass of ginger or root beer or maybe hitting that sweet/salty note with a handful of roasted salted cashews.

Perfect Timing

June 11, 2018

After a Winter that seemed endless and the shortest Spring ever, the timing is perfect for Heath Ceramics Summer Seasonal collection. From our favorite bud vases in Wildflower, Zinnia and Black Plum to the debut of new glazes like Sunset Fade on the Deep Serving Bowl and Sorbet on the Multi Stem Vase, it’s clear from where the inspiration was drawn..Summer flowers in pinks and oranges, glorious Summer sunsets and juicy late Summer fruits.
