Homemade Ice Cream - Easier Than You think!

If you are looking for some great fun and a delicious treat any time of year, you will want to know about making homemade ice cream. This is a fun thing to do alone or with someone else. No matter what you are doing or what the temperature is outside, you will want to have some homemade ice cream for a great snack or treat. You will love making it along with eating it as well.

You can make the homemade ice cream on your own or with your friends or family. There is no limit to the number of people participating. The more people will mean the more fun that you will have. This is a great time, you will be able to enjoy and make lasting memories at the same time. You will appreciate the fun and the excitement that you will have doing this special moment.

You can make any kind of homemade ice cream that you want. You can make strawberry, cherry, chocolate, blueberry, banana, vanilla, or any other flavor that fits your tastes buds. No matter what the flavor, you will defiantly have a delicious frozen treat to share with your loved ones. They will not believe that you made this wonderful treat on your own.

Getting an ice cream maker is one option. This will make delicious frozen ice cream and you will not have to do much work to have it. It is an easier way to make homemade ice cream. Usually the direction will come along with the ice cream maker so that you are sure of what you are doing. It may be a long process, but in the end, it is well worth it.
There are electric ice cream makers and there are the regular old crank kinds.

The crank style is the old-fashioned ice cream maker and this may take a longer time to use. It will require some strength as well because you will have to make sure that you are cranking the ice cream all the time to ensure that it comes out just perfect. The electric brand of ice cream maker is faster and you will not have to do as much work using it.

You can decide the thickness of your ice cream. You do not have to make it incredibly thick or thin just because you are making it at home. In fact making it at home on your own will allow you to have more options. Not only can you make the flavor with the ingredients that you want, you can choose how thick or thin you want your ice cream. Many people like it to be so thick and creamy it sticks to the spoon, while others like it to be thinner like a milkshake would be.

You can use different ingredients to make your homemade ice cream. If you like to use the regular sugar, you may do so. However, for some people, they are not allowed to have real sugar, and they will want to use diabetic sugar as some call it. The brand is better and lower in the actual sugar products. You can also find many of the flavors that you will need for the ice cream in the sugar free style as well. You will have all the power to make the ice cream that you want and love. This is the best part of making homemade ice cream.

There is really nothing better than sitting on your front porch in the summer with a great bowl of homemade ice cream. This is something that you can do every night as a part of a tradition that you can start with your family. Making it is the first part of fun, and eating it and enjoying your creation is the second part of fun that goes along with homemade ice cream.

Glass Jewelry?

I visited Kauai a couple years ago. While I was there I bought a gorgeous glass bracelet that I have since broken into a million pieces in a drunken stupor. I can not for the life of me remember the artists name or the name of the shop to look up more information and replace it. I've searched online for quite awhile and had no luck, so here is what I do remeber. The shop was in Old Koloa Town. It had a lot of glass cuff bracelets and globes by the same artist in the window and they were kind of pricey (for me at least.) If anyone knows the name of the store I would appreciate it sooooo much so I can look up a telephone number or website. :)

And just a little about me:

Name: Carrie
Age: 18
Location: Oustide of Chicago, IL.
Interests, Please: Make up arts, photography, Elliott Smith, etc.
Have you been to Hawai'i? (if applicable): Kauai in Spring of 2005.
What do you like about Hawai'i? It was beautiful and very laid back.
What do you dislike about Hawai'i? Damn roosters!

Thanks for reading. :)

apartment search

hello, all!

over the summer, i lived in honoka'a and got to enjoy a lot of great things in hilo. right now, i'm back at home on the mainland, but, come january, i'm transferring to the university of hawaii at hilo to finish my bachelor's degree.

i'm desperately looking for an apartment in hilo (preferably near campus, but i'll take what i can get). i've got a few listings through the university, but i'm very interested in checking out all the options.

i've tried searching on line through sites like rent.com, but there are very few listings for the island and none for hilo.

so, if you could point me toward any sort of resources--phone numbers, web sites, friends, whatever--i would greatly appreciate it. i'm really looking forward to moving to hilo. perhaps, then, i'll get to thank some of you in person for your help with this.

thanks so much!

well hi.

First, the introduction;

Name: Ambrosia, but Amber please.

Age: 17

Location: Indiana. yeah.

Interests, Please: Laying out, beaches, work, jazzercise, volunteering, watching movies, going to shows, music, ect.

Have you been to Hawai'i? (if applicable): Nah.

What do you like about Hawai'i? It seems like an absolutely gorgeous place to get away from the media and typical American culture. Like listening to fallout boy, which is playing on the radio right now.

What do you dislike about Hawai'i? I've never been, so I'm not sure.

Alright, all shallow attempts for you guys to know me aside.

Me and a friend were talking about living in Hawaii. We're both kind of spontaneous girls, and her family's already lived there, and we talked about getting a small, two bedroom apartment and getting some waitressing jobs and living there for a while.

Of course the initial idea is unrealisitc, but I was curious. Assuming any of you live in Hawaii, how's the cost of living? Does it vary from a touristy-place like honolulu to a more secluded place? Is it really hard to find a job that will at least pay the bills? Is housing outside of tourist towns hard to find? How are your bills? Sorry to play 20 questions, I'm just really curious.
