HOMEMADE VANILLA BEAN ICE CREAM

WITH ONLY FOUR INGREDIENTS


When I was little, my grandparents used to make homemade ice cream in the summertime which is probably where my love for ice cream started.  I would sit and watch in amazement as they added the rock salt to the churn and it seemed like it was quite the process!  I thought to myself that when I got to be an adult I would get an ice cream maker and make my own ice cream just like they did.  Little did I know that you don’t actually need an ice cream maker just a few ingredients and a mixer.  This recipe is super easy and can be adjusted to make just about any ice cream flavor you can imagine but today I’m gonna start with the basics.  This creamy homemade vanilla bean ice cream recipe will have you whipping up a sundae in no time!

  • Girl put your records on and play your favorite song 🎶 Just picked up a new record the other day! Have you heard of Cotton Jones? They sound so dreamy with a vintage kind of vibe that I can’t help but sway to! Swipe through to have a listen and let me know what you think! 💫
  • A Halloween colored golden hour and this house was dressed perfectly for the occasion... It’s still heating up here in the south and by the end of these photos my overalls were sticking to my legs so bad that I had to hike them up to get back into the car 😅 Hey fall over here!🙋‍♀️🍂 Anyone else dealing with all this heat still?
  • Happy first of October!!! 🎃 I’ve gone batty decorating the porch... 🦇 I added a few pops of green for a “gourd-gous” scene as my witchy side reminds me, tis near Halloween! Looking forward to starting October off right with all the spooky magic this month brings! Clearly Halloween is one of my fave holidays and I’ve been so ready for it! Have you started decorating yet? I’d love to know what you’re doing for porch decor this year! Also, what do you think of my DIY painted doormat?
  • Every year for as long as I can remember, my family has celebrated the fall season by bringing home a bag of @brachscandy Autumn Mix. #sponsored This year, I thought it might be nice to share the tradition with friends by making them a spooky sweet treat because it's not Halloween without Brach's candy corn. That said, I stopped by @target on my way home to pick some up (plus a bag of Pumpkins for me) and whipped up this super simple Dark Chocolate Candy Corn Bark (recipe below). To add some extra holiday spirit, I placed them in cute goodie bags with a little tag that says "This is for you, Boo!" Can't wait to hand these out and keep the tradition going! Happy Haunting, friends! (1) 12oz. Bag of Dark Chocolate Chunks (melted)
(1) 10-15 of Brach's Candy Corn
Sprinkles of Your Choice
(1) Cookie Sheet Covered with Parchment Paper

After the chocolate has been melted, carefully spread the warm chocolate out on the pan and smooth over into one layer.  Add candy corn/sprinkles and allow to cool in the fridge.  Once cooled, break the chocolate apart into large chunks/shards and disperse as you please.

  • Most of the time my days off consist of me running errands, cleaning and working on stuff for the blog, not to mention, all the other things that come up in life. 
Today, I managed to wake up early and check out the local farmer’s market (they had 🎃 check out my stories if you wanna sneak a peek), catch up with some good friends that I haven’t seen in awhile, and even squeezed in a little DIY project that I’ve been wanting to try for quite some time (also in stories)... This was a rare day indeed, but a really good one and it pains me that I have to remind myself to do more things that bring me joy as it seems like I’m always busy these days. That being said,  I just thought I’d check in with you because I know first hand how easy it is to run yourself ragged. So here it goes, what have you done to feed your soul/bring you joy lately? ✨

  • When it’s 92 degrees out, but you still wanna get your fall on! 🍂✨

Lately I’ve been cranking up the AC to pretend it’s cool out, lighting pumpkin candles, flipping through autumnal books/magazines, and watching Harry Potter because I’m determined to get in the mood for fall one way or another! 🤣 What are you guys doing to get your fall on? .
