Thanks for a brilliant podcast, we have missed your voice round here. It is good to have you back. Though I totally understand the find balancing act between the 'to-do' list and getting through each day.

Recently I have had to prioritise and try to learn that I can't get everything done all of the time and spreading myself too thinly is not a good thing.

Anyway I digress. I popped past to share this link I found in my blog reader this morning.

I thought it sounded like an amazing ice-cream. http://homemadewithmess.wordpress.com/2013/10/23/banana-and-caramel-ice-cream/

We have an ice cream maker, and I use it all the time. Regular ice cream just doesn't taste as good anymore. I find that the custard-based ice creams (with eggs) have the best texture and taste, although I usuaully down the sugar quite a bit.

However, I did make this ice-cream, just dumped the roasted strawberry mixture into the maker when the ice cream was almost completed, (I used my regular vanilla as a base) and it was FANTASTIC! (we visitied the strawberry farm many times this summer - it was such a great child-friendly outing)

But while I was searching for the recipe, I found this one which is made with Coconut milk.

I love your podcast.
