I know, this ice cream in the middle of the coldest part of the year is against all rules of food. Strawberries just aren’t meant to be eaten right now and I just broke the rules! But they were on sale… And it sounded so good… And my friend and I were looking for things to make with my new ice cream maker. This just … Continue reading Roasted Strawberry and Basil Ice Cream
