1 pint heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbs chai tea powder
1 tsp real vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain granulated sugar

Put all ingredients into mixer (you can use a hand mixer or if you have a kitchenaid and are spoiled like me, do that). Mix on low for 1-2 minutes.

Pour slowly into ice cream maker following directions.

Freeze afterwards so it can set up.

If you will notice this is a RICH gourmet ice cream with basically NO air. I suggest eating 1/4 cup or less in a tiny fancy dish. This is scrumptous and amazing ice cream but has a very adult type flavor. I continue to experiment leading up to the BBQ. We shall have a daytime ice cream that will be for kiddos (Vanilla Bean most likely) and a fancy night time gelato (lavender or rose possibly).

I am proud of this ice cream because I do a few things with talent that I love. One is I make good dessert. Another is I make good comfort food if I trust my gut and just DO it without recipe. My cooking from the heart is best. I can't bake, but I can cook.

I am coming up with the PERFECTO birthday party night recipe. Any suggestions? Favorite ice cream and cake flavors? Favorite candy?

I love Irish Cream ice cream and choc peanut butter. Favorite candy is Snicker bar (off the top of my head - there's probably more).

What time are we getting together Saturday? I'm totally free so far!

Favorite cake - I like all kinds of cake. I HATE that nasty overly-sweet Crisco-y frosting that most cake bakers use. I think Costco makes pretty decent cakes. But you know... I can always take off the frosting!!!

Now you got me thinking about carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Damn...

Luckily for us, our Ice Cream maker is AWESOME, but tiny, so it wouldn't fit near that amount. We can fit 2 cups max in it.

What kind of ice cream maker do you have? I have been considering getting one of those that you put in the freezer first to chill the middle part, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-ICE-20-Automatic-2-Quart-Ice-Cream/dp/B00000JGRT/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1217441527&sr=8-1

One of my friends has one but I don't know if I'd use it enough to make it worth it. A small one might be really nice, though. I don't need to make that much.
