Skip the scoop shop

By TODD RICHARD  |  July 18, 2007

Don’t have an ice-cream maker at all, and have no interest in getting one? Fear not. Make your recipe, place the contents in a Pyrex or metal baking dish with sides, and freeze it for a few hours. When crystals start forming, remove it from the freezer and scrape down the sides, leaving it slushy. Refreeze until solid, and then break it up into chunks using a sharp knife. Place the chunks into a food-processor, and blend until a thick shake-like consistency is achieved. Refreeze one more time, and it should scoop and serve like it was made in an expensive ice-cream maker, and no one will ever know the difference.

  •   AN AUTHENTIC VALENTINE?  |  February 04, 2009
    With a battalion of cherubs, a glut of roses, and a ticker-tape parade of hollow Hallmark sentiments, Valentine's Day may yet be the most reviled and expensive holiday of the year.
