Short Order Ice Cream

24 oz frozen strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

If using whole frozen berries, sit out until you can slice them-but NOT thawed! Slice berries. Combine berries and sugar in blender. Blend until chopped, this was super hard for me I did as much as I could and gave up eventually, Stir often with spatula. Add cream while blending, stir with spatula often, it helps the blender out to get some cream to the bottom, mix until thick. Pour it into a pan, I used a pyrex dish. Let sit in freezer until scoop-able, the original recipe calls for an hour we only did 1/2 an hour.

This stuff was amazing and super fast. For the two of us I made half a batch and left the rest in the freezer for tomorrow. It is super yummy and not too bad for you. Also a cheap place for the frozen berries is Dollar Tree, we use 1 bag of berries for our half batch (12 oz berries) and it was $1. The cream was the most expensive thing in it, at $2.27 from Wal-mart, we could have gotten it cheaper somewhere else but we were there looking for canning supplies. You might also be able to save on some calories and money by using whipping cream instead, but I don't know if it will be the right consistency. the way...I got this recipe from MaryJane's Farm, The Everyday Organic Lifestyle magazine, from the June/July issue of 2010.

White Chocolate Puppy Chow with Cinnamon

Oh my goodness... Amazing. I kind of faked this one and the only reason I decided to try it is because I want puppy chow, but didn't want to walk to the pantry to get chocolate chips and had white chocolate in the fridge. Who said laziness didn't pay off? Well I didn't measure anything I just guessed so if you don't know how to make it look up a normal recipe and substitute white chocolate, I also just sprinkled in some cinnamon to taste...don't lie I know you taste it while shaking and mixing the stuff together... Well I think I am going to go feast on some now.
