Dates Ice Cream

I would love to know from all of you, my lovely readers – if you have kids at home, what is that one thing that they constantly request for? I mean in terms of food and nothing else… πŸ™‚ There are two things my kids ask – chocolate cake and ice-cream. They don’t ask for anything else. Though I wouldn’t mind making them some chocolate cake on and off, so that I also get to enjoy them (hehe…), I steer away from making ice-cream regularly. The main reason is that being school going kids, there is hardly a day when they are without running nose or cough. Once school starts, it is like their constant partner. No amount of medicines work. Therefore, I rely on steam and menthol oils to relieve them of any heaviness. When school is on, they kind of get used to having a clogged nose that when they have their vacations, an open nose is a big surprise for them! Hehe…


All ice-creams that I have already put on the blog are all without an ice-cream maker. I have bought one recently but it is still in its pack and I have no idea when I am going to open it up and start using it! This was one ice-cream that I totally loved – hardly any work and really soft serve that it looked like store bought ice-cream. I had a tough time convincing HD that it was indeed me who had made it. See, there is no point in saying that I am a food blogger, there are times when our family members would still give us such little attacks, especially when food turn out to be much better than expected! πŸ™‚
