New Gadget= Mini Donuts

These are perfect for everyone. I find when I have a sweet tooth, one of these can solve it.
Made chocolate minis yesterday with chocolate glaze. They were so easy, used Dark cocoa( 100%cocoa). The best for use loaded with antioxidants.

This machine was so easy to use and takes no time. The Machine " Baby Cakes Donut" make 6 at one time and takes 4 minutes cooking time. I do not have to use oil at all on the device. Its' nonstick surface works very well. The Machine is small, making it easy to store. Colorful for on the counter if you wish. I like the fact that you are in control of the ingredients. This makes them much healthier.

I will be adding a category to my index just on recipes for this gadget. There are so much ideas floating in my head. Thinking seasonal recipes would be a great one.

Kitchen Gadget- Ice Cream anyone?

I purchased a new ice cream maker. It is a Cuisinart 1-1/2 Quart Ice Cream Maker. It is so easy to use and one can have ice cream in 20 minutes. I like to put it in the freezer for one hour to get to a consistency I like. There is nothing like home made ice cream. I have a great recipe that I created.

Ovaltine Reece's Ice cream

mix together:
3/4 cups Rich Chocolate Ovaltine powder.
1 cup Half n Half
2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 1/2 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

Stir well and then refrigerate for about 1 hour.( you can make this a keep in refrigerator overnight)

Prepare ice cream maker.

Pour mixture into running ice cream maker.(the bowl should be well frozen).
It well take about 15 to 20 minutes until thicken.

In the meantime chop up a 4 oz. package of Reece's pieces.

Add the the mixture and continue mixing for 5 more minutes.

Remove ice cream and put into a freezer container with a sealed top. Freeze for 1 to two hours.)
remove for freezer at least 15 minutes before serving.(if you freeze longer than 2 hours.
