I have always loved and preferred the taste of homemade ice cream, but up til now, I have only made vanilla using the good ol' zip-loc bag method.

We finally broke down and bought an electric ice cream maker. The bowl has been in the freezer since yesterday morning, and tonight after dinner we make our first batch of ice cream in it. The debut flavor will be chocolate chocolate chip.

I am psyched about having this appliance and all the cool flavors I can make!

For those of you that own ice cream makers...any hints and tips and/or great recipes? Do you use the maker often or is it one of those things that ends up just taking up space in the cabinet?

When my kids were small we used to make ice cream all the time using one of those ice/rock salt ice cream makers. Ours was electric. The ice cream was to die for and back then I was still skinny as a rail. I think about doing it often, but then I take a look at my back side and I know I must not go there.

I do find that the ice cream from the store seems to be not as good as it once was. I used to love Breyer's but it is no longer is as good as it once was. Why do companies keep degrading their products in order to save a few pennies?

We use ours pretty regularly through the summer months. It's so simple to make a batch. I like to make vanilla and then add in whatever flavor of the moment I feel like. My favorite so far was black cherry with chocolate chips.

I use my KitchenAid Ice Cream maker but haven't experimented too much. DH likes vanilla and if I make my choices, I'll eat it all

Grandma, you seem a likely candidate for Sidewalk Ice Cream. Those of us in So Cal, or formerly, would make this every summer. It's a large coffee can with a smaller one inside, surrounded by ice and rock salt. The smaller can houses the ice cream ingredients. Roll them both on the sidewalk for about 20 minutes and you're ready.

I have an ice cream maker "attachment" for my standing mixer so it doesn't take up too much space. My tip is for you to make strawberry ice cream when strawberries are in season. You have to eat it right away because there's a significant taste difference just 2 days later. 2 days later it tastes like what you get at stores or scoop shops. Fresh, it's like nothing I've ever tasted.

I make green tea ice cream with the sidewalk method. I love it, but no longer live in an area where I can buy it.

It requires Matcha green tea powder, and since I am the only one that likes it (except the baby that will eat anything) I make mine and we have the electric for vanilla.

Not an ice cream maker recipe, but I found that if you mix plain nonfat yogurt and Nutella in a blender, and then add frozen strawberries, it's an instant, yummy, low guilt treat.
