Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

01 Jan

Brought to us by John

1 1/2 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
dash of salt
1/2 cup half and half
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
———
This recipe assumes that you have a pre-chilled ice cream mixer. Combine the whole milk, sugar and salt in a bowl, whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Add the half and half, whipping crème and vanilla to the bowl, stir gently and then pour the mixture into your already running ice cream mixer.
After 20-30 minutes, the mixture should be the consistency of Ice Cream. Add to a bowl and freeze for 2-3 hours to solidify it a bit before serving.
Serves 4-8.

 

Carbonara

01 Jan

Brought to us by Greg

1 box of spaghetti
1 can evaporated skim milk (not sweetened / condensed)
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 egg
Dash of garlic powder
Several ounces of ham
Butter
———
Cook spaghetti and drain it thoroughly (I mix in a little butter or oil afterwards to keep it from sticking together)
Mix together evaporated skim milk, sugar, parmesan cheese, egg and garlic powder.
In a very large pan, cook the ham in the butter just until the edges start to turn brown. Add spaghetti, and add the wet stuff already mixed together.
Cook over low heat, and be vigilant – you want the egg to be cooked and edible, but not so much as to scramble it and make everything dry. There’s a pretty short time between those two occurring. You may want to do multiple batches if you don’t’ have a large pan.
Makes 3-4 servings.
