If you don’t have an ice cream maker ask for one for your birthday. It is such a treat and Iclick here It is so stinkin’ easy to whip this up, pour it in the ice cream maker and take a walk (this will make you feel better before you eat 2 bowls) and when you come home, viola!

AND THEN…my sweet friend loaned my an apple corer/peeler/chopper and my life changed! I ordered a crate of apples from our local apple guy and went to work! […]
