Vanilla, to some, is synonymous with boring, plain and ordinary. To me, it is often what brings flavors together. Very rarely does a recipe let vanilla shine as the star ingredient. In the Vanilla Bean Ice Cream that Lynne of Cafe Lynnylu chose for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, it shines, shines, shines!
I haven't been blogging a lot lately (summer + 3 kids = no time for mommy) but I couldn't let this week go by without taking my ice cream maker out of the freezer. I had to wait until the last minute to make the ice cream, but I am so glad I did make it! It is THE best vanilla ice cream EVER. Period.
Don't take my word for it though, go check out Lynne's blog and get the recipe. You can also visit the ever growing number of blogs on the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll for more inspiration. I'm pretty sure a few of them might have added a few things to make vanilla even more interesting, to them. Then give your ice cream maker a workout. And when you finally get to taste THE best vanilla ice cream EVER, you won't be able to get that smile off your face. Trust me.
