Don't like her ice cream recipes as much. In an effort to reduce using so many egg yolks, she creates a milk/corn starch slurry, uses corn syrup, and also incorporates a salted cream cheese (I used mascarpone). It's not bad, but if you are taking all the time to make homemade ice cream (and this actually takes *more* time than using egg yolks), I'd rather it not have a slightly processed flavor. I found it tasted different from other homemade ice cream I've made before. There are good sorbet recipes, however. ( )

How's your life? Pretty good? Okay?
Want to be happier? Make ice cream from this book. Seriously, they are recipes for happiness. The happiest ice cream in the whole world. And you made it yourself! In your own kitchen with ingredients that you bought in whole form from your favorite market!
Recommended for anyone who loves good, quality food and a higher standard of living. ( )

Read it cover to cover and then ordered an ice cream maker immediately. Can't wait to make some lemon sorbet, salty caramel and queen city cayenne!! ( )

I was led to Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home by the folks at The Bitten Word food blog. Like many, I had an ice cream maker gathering dust in the basement. While the 2 recipes I tried were yummy (Strawberry Buttermilk and Rhubarb), I still won't be making my own ice cream regularly. While her technique is easier than making custard with eggs, it is still too time consuming to do on a regular basis. ( )

I've made ice cream at home before (like the good little ice cream lover that I am) but the consistency has never been quite up to my liking. The desserts always turned out a bit harder than I prefer and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home claims to have a new DIY recipe to remedy this problem. I won't give away any secret ingredients - sorry! But I will say that her ice cream base is yum-tastic!

After going through the basics, the book is split up by season. Each season is filled with delectable recipes and then ends with some mouth-watering sundae suggestions. Here's some of my favorite flavor recipes:

Spring: Savannah Buttermint Ice Cream
Summer: Sweet Corn & Black Raspberry Ice Cream
Autumn: Roasted Pumpkin Five-Spice Ice Cream
Winter: Influenza RX Sorbet (citrus, honey, spices, and bourbon to cure the sniffles!)

Jeni Britton Bauer even includes recipes for macaroon ice cream sandwiches and homemade push-pops! I highly suggest this book for any ice cream aficionado or for those who want to test out their ice cream makers!
