I have a confession to make.
I eat condensed milk. Like, I mean I eat it straight out of the tin. By the tablespoon full and it is the most undulatingly sinful indulgence I have ever experienced.
But a few years ago, it dawned on me that eating condensed milk tablespoons at a time… in fact whole tins at a time… would probably leave me a fat and toothless hag at the ripe old age of 30, so in an earnest effort to keep at least my molars and incisors intact (becaused dang if I can’t eat steak with my own set of teeth), I stopped buying condensed milk.
Until this week.
Because well it’s not my fault if this ice cream recipe calls for 100mL of condensed milk, right? I mean, 100mL for the ice cream and 400mL for me?
My love of condensed milk aside, I have another obsession and the biggest vice in my no-diet diet: ice cream.
Where many people have said to me that their freezer is too full of frozen meats and sauces to house any ice cream, well *ahem* mine is too full of various tubs of Haagen Dazs ice creams (my favourite is strawberry cheesecake), mochi ice creams and now home made ice cream, that I um…. I have no room for meat.
But that means we just buy our meat fresh, which is like… better, right?
Anyway, check out this ice cream recipe. I guarantee it is the easiest ice cream recipe you’ll ever find, or I’ll totally give you all of your money back.. I mean, how much did you pay to read this blog post? Yeah, I’ll give that back.
It was borrowed from Karen Cheng’s vanilla recipe, and I added the oreos because… why not, right? This easy recipe and making ice cream – successfully making ice cream – has been a serious milestone in my mundane little life and I am *so* excited to try some different flavours 🙂
