I blame the Internet.
An easy and convenient accusation, I know. However, after spending many hours browsing (and drooling over) numerous food blogs, I felt compelled to share the minutiae of my life with food with you, the unsuspecting public.
My compulsion with dessert began at birth. More recently, with the purchase of my third ice cream maker, the Cuisinart ICE-50BCC.
This is my "grown-up" ice cream maker. It has a built-in freezer, so I don't have to wait 24 hrs. between batches. So far, we've made five batches and I'm completely thrilled with it.
My only complaint? It's so heavy, and with the rubber feet I find it difficult to heave it around the kitchen. I'm planning a program of weight lifting, vitamin-taking and jazzercise to strengthen my weakling arms so that I can manage to put this sucker away.
I first discovered this gem of an appliance on the blog of my Ice Cream Hero, David Lebovitz. If you are a fan of ice cream, David's your man! So thanks, David!
And thanks, Internet!
