just a little ice cream genius

I finally bought an ice cream maker.  Unfortunately, I bought it from the Devil Store (i.e. Wallmart) as I had a gift card, it was only $25 dollars, so what else was I going to do with it?  LUCKILY, despite somewhat mixed reviews on the website, I was successful in creating my very own ice cream.   After reading my Ben & Jerry's ice cream book and the manual to my ice cream maker (I even read it in French), multiple...

just a little list of favourite things

I haven't listened to many Christmas carols/songs this year outside of the bustling malls and stores, but for whatever reason I was thinking about the song My Favorite Things.  (Maybe it was because I was thinking how I enjoyed the Wizard of Oz more than the Sound of Music growing up.)  The song used to play on a Christmas disc that my mother had although I don't recall it being an all together Christmassy song.  In any case, this morning I...
