We all Scream for Ice Cream

For a wedding gift (geez in 1995 – 15 years ago)DH and I received an Ice Cream Maker resembling this Cuisinart model below. Thanks Mr. Rob! 

 Cuisinart 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream Makers 

It has periodically been sleeping in the cupboard until this summer.

 Since I am a summer time family camp counselor to the 10, 5.5 and 4 year old gangsters all day long – this has become a favorite nightly past time.

Did I mention I am happily becoming chubby lately?

Enough talk now on to some business, this is how the ice cream party goes down.

You too can prepare REAL Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

These photos were for a humongous sized batch of chocolate chip ice cream, 

see the recipe below for a more family sized operation.

Simply add the ingredients together and stir

The only prep work involved is freezing the inner core of the ice cream maker.

Add your premixed liquids

Then delight in the magic unfolding before you.

Wait for the ice cream to develop, then add the chocolate chips when the mixture has come together.

Perfect to freeze,

Or eat as a soft serve.

The gangsters ask for it nightly.  

I love it when they do. 

Here is the no-cook, no eggs, made with half-and-half and cream. 

A great, simple, classic Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.


  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 pinch salt

    I think I have one of those machines somewhere in the dark recesses of my kitchen cupboards – I really want some ice cream now!

    I used to have one of those…an earlier version from my wedding in 1989. During our early years surviving on $900/month we used it quite often. You’ve inspired me to find it (storage?under the house? crawlspace?) or just head over to Tar-Jay and replace it. 🙂
