It just happens to coincide with Meredith's themes for blueberries and National Ice Cream Month over at Scrumptious Sunday which is hosted by Meredith at Mercedes Rocks and with Favorite Ingredient Friday's 4th of July theme which is hosted by Kathryn at Overwhelmed with Joy.

It is not a problem with my ice cream freezer, but Kathryn over at Overwhelmed with Joy recently pointed out that she found it better to cool the mixture in the refrigerator before using the ice cream freezer.

Hi Tamy,

In response to your comment on my blog, I would chose Europe because of England, I am a total anglophile. All these recipes look delicious. Blessings...

Homemade ice cream at my Grandparents house used to be one of the biggest highlights of Christmas when we were kids. At a family reunion last summer my Uncle Max made ice cream from Grandma's old recipe. It was gone in less than 10 minutes! But the memories it brought back will last forever.
I'm going to have to come back here and give some of your recipes a try- they sound wonderful!
Thanks for visiting my blog this morning!

These recipes sound delish!

I posted a recipe for homemade tart cherry frozen yogurt on my blog last week. Froyo lovers should check it out! Look for the 6/26/08 post titled "Real." Healthy, too.

Nice blog!

These are six wonderful ice cream recipes. :-) I'm grinning big. I can't wait to try them out.

So, we tried your strawberry ice cream recipe on the 4th and it was fabulous! I did learn that it's best to cool the ice cream mixture in the fridge before putting it into your ice cream maker.

Thanks for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday- 4th of July Edition recipe exchange! I do appreciate it.
