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!

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Just a smudge.... Have you ever used sage/smudge sticks to clear out negative energy? I know it sounds crazy but I absolutely swear by this method!!! Sometimes you just need a smudge, ya know?! P.S. you can now shop my looks and decor via @liketoknow.it

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!
