"I was in panic mode. This is our favorite ice cream recipe and my granddaughter wanted it for her birthday. I couldn't find the magazine I had for years with the recipe. Thanks for this sight! It is the best recipe for ice cream that I have ever found. Sometimes I eliminate the cocoa and coffee, and it is still the best recipe for vanilla ice cream!!!!"

"Excellent! It's at the same level with the recipes at I'll definitely make this over and over again. I guess I just have to limit my intake."
