Avocado Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
After being reluctantly talked into trying avocado ice cream at the local Mexican restaurant, (I LOVE avocados, but in ICE CREAM?? My thought was EWWWW) and finding that I love it in ice cream as much as I do on nachos or in burritos, I was excited to see a recipe that seemed like it would simulate the taste I loved there. This recipe, alas, is not it. The taste is similar, nice and smooth and decent avocado taste, but it is WAY too sweet for my taste. The version I had at the restaurant is very mildly sweet, which I much preferred. It seemed as if the taste of the avocados came through more at the restaurant too, which makes me think it was even a bit too sweet to allow the full flavor of the avocados to show through. It was good enough that I will try it again, with much less sweetener next time. I'm thinking probably 1/2-3/4 cup sweetener instead of the 1 cup this recipe suggests. But other than that, it was very good. And if you prefer very sweet ice cream, it may be perfect for you as is. But not for me.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
I have made many a chocolate chip recipe over the years, and by far this one is the best. The only change I make is to mix the pudding mix into the flour/baking soda mixture and then add to the creamed butter/sugar mix. The pudding doesnt seem to mix as well if you try to add it to the butter mix. Also, both the uncooked dough and the finished cookies freeze exceptionally well. I had a batch of baked cookies last year that had gotten pushed way to the back of the freezer and I didnt see them until several months later. Thawed them out and they were just as good as fresh. They lose nothing in freezing. Would give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could. :)
