Here is a special post for Sagan, who has a terrific blog over at Living Healthy in the Real World.
Sagan wanted recipes for home-made ice cream. The Bag Lady has lots of recipes for home-made ice cream, but for most of them you need an ice cream maker. Here is one that is designed to be made in the freezer. (The Bag Lady also reminds Sagan that she warned her that the recipe may not be considered exactly healthy...here's a chance to do some tweaking!)
French Vanilla Ice Cream
Blend in saucepan:
1/2 Cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 Cup milk
3 egg yolks, beaten
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to boil. Cool. Then add:
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon flavoring
Pour into tray. Freeze until mixture is mushy and partly frozen (1/2 - 1 hour) Whip until stiff:
1 Cup whipping cream
Empty partially frozen mixture into chilled bowl, beat until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into two refrigerator trays and freeze until firm, stirring frequently and thoroughly during first hour of freezing. Freezing time will be 3 to 4 hours.
Good luck with your ice cream endeavours, Sagan!
And, while she's at it, the Bag Lady presents a cake to serve it with:
3 1/2 Cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1 Cup Oil
1 Cup Honey
1 1/2 Cups sugar
3/4 Cup orange juice
Mix dry ingredients. Add remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly (batter is thin). Pour into greased and floured 10-inch bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 55 - 65 minutes. Cool 20 minutes in pan, turn onto wire rack. Cool completely.
The Bag Lady reminds all of her faithful readers that hers is
not a health and fitness blog a blog about many things!
The Bag Lady has a dilemma. One of her new commenters (and the Bag Lady hopes she will return and become a regular visitor!) has asked for the Bag Lady's much sought-after, famous, and until now, very secret salsa recipe. What do you think, folks? Should the Bag Lady publish her recipe? Should she share it's fabulousness with the whole wide world?
