  • This week on Basics, things take a turn for the sweeter because I'm making ice cream. We're going to try a few different techniques that vary in difficulty, but they all have one thing in common: you don't need a standalone appliance.

    Join me 7/19 on Twitch for the the ice cream live cook-a-long:

    Ingredients & Grocery List:
    + Blended Banana Ice Cream:
    2 bananas, frozen
