The little ice cream maker I bought a few weeks ago works okay. It runs on 4AA batteries in the freezer. I find I had to make a yolk based ice cream for it to taste good. I tried vanilla already..not bad. I also tried a bittersweet chocolate sorbet (not in the ice cream maker) with the black cocoa (from King Arthur Flour). It was so rich and bittersweet. I can't make it too often because I ate it all myself (over a week).

I've been trying a few cookies recipes with lemon thyme. It's starting to be my favorite. I love anything lemon during the summer because its a clean, fresh taste. I've made a basic cookie recipe...not sugar and not butter..but in between and added the lemon thyme. You just have to be careful with stripping the little stalks not to get any in the cookies. And then I added a simple lemon glaze and everyone at work loved them. I think next I'll try the lemon thyme with lavender. Should be interesting.
