  1. And if one had a particular passion for vanilla could one add the seeds of a vanilla pod? This looks so decadent I will have to give it a try!

  2. Love the blog. I have told many about it here in the Midwest in the states, even an ice cream shop in Des Moines , Iowa. I am so glad you printed the article in the Times. It would be great if you did each one. Your photos are beautiful. One of my favorite posts was the ice cream in space one. I sent that to so many people, it was just fun to hear those two guys laugh! Keep up the good work.
