My son Maxime was going to a 'Peach Party' tonight and we decided to make together a Peach Crisp. It was fun to be able to spend the afternoon together, in the kitchen, to prepare the dessert. The peach crisp turned out really yummy and he said that his friends enjoyed it. We prepared three small crisps for us to taste before sending the dessert over. Yesterday I made Vanilla Ice Cream, for the first time, and it was so good with the crisp. Making Ice Cream was easier than I thought it would be. I have a Hamilton Beach ice cream maker and followed the recipe for their Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream. It takes two days to make. You need to prepare the custard, let it cool overnight, and the next day you finish the ice cream. It was good, better than any ice cream in stores but next time I will try David Lebovitz Vanilla Ice Cream. He uses only eggs yolks and a bit more cream. In his recipe you will find vanilla extract but also real vanilla bean. I think that will make a bit difference in the taste.
I have to share that if you go on the Food Network Canada website and click on Pic of the Week you will see my picture of my Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes. That made my day. Thanks Food Network!
