I know I have mentioned this enough on the blog, but I’ll say it again for the ones who are here for the first time – V is not a sweet tooth kind of guy. I have managed to turn him a bit but still the dessert devotee in me doesn’t think it’s enough. He is quite the health freak and the kinds who doesn’t need dessert to conclude a meal. I, on the other hand, have been known to actually eat a meal so that I do not feel guilty for having just desserts on my plate. Probably that’s why I am constantly struggling with my weight, while V actually exercises to gain weight! Some guys do have all the luck!
But, V does have a weakness. Its strawberry ice cream. That he will buy even when I am not there. Something he will eat without me having to emotionally blackmail him to eat it so that I dont feel guilty of taking a bite myself.
So, it was only obvious that I had to learn how to make at home a dessert that he enjoys so much. It also gave me a chance to inaugurate the ice cream maker for this season.

For the past several days I haven’t been cooking much. Either its been leftovers or take out (which in our town means pizza mostly) or its been a thrown together sandwich or just toast and egg or parantha and egg. I have been so busy with other stuff that I don’t feel like spending time in the kitchen. Nor have I been able to find time to spend on my laptop and blog. Or respond to comments. Or time to check everybody else’s blogs and what’s been cooking in their kitchen. Plus,I hardly get time to spend on pinterest or foodgawker (my daily food porn fixes!). Thank god for iPhone apps, I still am able to get a little of my daily dose of the two. But it’s not enough! I want more. No, I NEED more time on these two sites!
Its good that life has been busy, but I wish it didn’t take away from blogging (food related) time. Or maybe I just need to learn how to manage everything better.
Anyway, since I have not been cooking anything new, this is the best time to tend to the backlog of recipes I have in my folder. This ice cream is one such recipe that has been in my folders for a very long time.

Yesterday was one of those days when I wish I could be a kid again. Life was full of hope and dreams and filled with all kinds of opportunities.
It was simpler.
It was uncomplicated.
The only real problems being homework and exams. And the occasional peeing in your bed.
I am a strong believer of whatever happens, happens for good and that has kept me sane through the past few years, but sometimes the wait gets to you and you end up writing a depressing post like this.
Now, I have written my share of optimistic posts (don’t believe me? check this out and this) and not that I don’t believe in all that I say in those posts, I do. But for today lets just give the silver lining a rest, can we?
