One of my favorite spreads. That Chicago skyline above and the "CHI" text are also my favorites (taken with instagram).

recipe #6: roasted strawberry buttermilk ice cream


source: Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home recipe book


rating: 9/10


modifications: roasted the strawberries for longer


So good. Super excited to be using buttermilk in ice cream. It made it a little tart but roasting the strawberries with sugar made sure that the berries weren't too sour. So far, this one had the best consistency and texture. Strawberry is one of my favorite flavors so it was awesome to make this at home and have it taste good.

Watch this video. Because it's awesome. It was embedded on my blog but an ad played automatically every time my blog was visited so I'll trust that you'll go to the link and watch on your own.
