Nothing Says Thank You Like Ice Cream

My blog now is almost half a year old. Even as I say it I cannot believe how much it has grown since then. From grotty pictures and posts which lasted one paragraph to a slightly more sophisticated style of photography and ultra long posts which I sincerely hope entertain you.

It is necessary though to say that I would never have lasted so long if it weren’t for all of you – the food blogging community – and my friends and family (who go without saying :D)

maple 3
Your support, comments, encouragement and awesome networking has been the reason I have continued this blog. You all inspire me, are friendly and share the same love of food that I do. Honestly now, I cannot imagine how weird it would feel not to be posting at least once a week (though you may have to forgive me during my half yearly weeks in 2 weeks time) or replying to all your comments or commenting on your fabulous blogs πŸ˜€

I am grateful and love you all and just wanted to take a moment from my insane stories and super long posts to tell you that. You have no idea how special you make an ordinary 16 year old girl feel πŸ™‚

maple 12
One form of such wonderful encouragement and support for me has been through blogger awards. They are cute, they are funny but more than anything they connect the blogger community together and show appreciation for each other πŸ˜€

I was so lucky that in this week, I got awarded three more awards from three beautiful blogger buddies!

maple 13
Firstly, Kimby @ A Little Lunch, one of the most homely yet decadent blogs I have had the pleasure to meet, awarded me with The Sunshine Award. Most sweet of you my friend! You too brighten up my computer screen with your delicious food!
Since the questions which accompany this award remain the same and I have answered them before, check out this post to see what comes from receiving it πŸ™‚

Secondly, a relatively new foodie friend I have met @ Food Lovers Club (cool name no?) tagged me with the Versatile Bloggers Award!
Thank you very very much πŸ˜€
If you have never checked out this blog, then you must drop everything and go because this truly is for food lovers only – WARNING: Do not come on hungry stomach πŸ˜‰
I posted about receiving this award from another wonderful blogger in my a couple of posts ago and since it requires you to tell 7 things about yourself, you can check it out there πŸ™‚

Last but certainly not least, Sheelagh @ The Irish Village Pantry has gracefully given me the ABC Of Me Award (a.k.a The Awesome Blog Content Award) – how cool is that??? πŸ˜€
The Irish Village Pantry is definitely a blog I could look at all night (don’t think I haven’t tried, my parents always catch me ;)) – All rounded chef, perfect pictures, really it does not get any better than this!

I have never received this awesome award before so let us get to the crux of it: The rules are simply to share facts about yourself using each letter of the alphabet before sharing the award along. Ok, here goes nothing…

A: ‘Amazing’ is a word I use too much while commenting on blogs – I can’t help it because they are!

B: Butterflies – did you know even if you touch the wing of a butterfly, it will never be able to fly again?

C: Cartoons – I can never get enough of Tom & Jerry!

D: Driving – Best. Fun. Ever.

maple 11
E: Elephants – I finally rode one when I went to India last – love it!

F: Finger Buns – My daddy and I share a bond over their sweet fluffy taste πŸ™‚

G: Games – Pass the parcel anyone? A favourite πŸ˜€

H: Halloween – One of my favourite days of the year because I love horror (also starts with H!)

maple 10
I: Indian heritage me πŸ™‚

J: Jewellery – the best is definitely rings and earrings!

K: Kitchen – one day I want to have the best kitchen in the world – easy right πŸ˜‰

L: Lindt – Sorry had to make a mention to my favourite chocolate brand

maple 4
M: Meteor Shower – Something I am yet to see but dream of

N: Nincompoop – one of my favourite insults “Duh, you nincompoop!” – effective no?

O: Opera – I love operas, musicals, theatre the lot – one day I will visit Broadway I promise!

P: Painting – something which I never could do in art

Q: Questions – sometimes I ask way too many (especially in maths!)

maple 5
R: Rebel Without A Cause – ILY James Dean, too cool!

S: Shopping – Yep, when it comes to the beginning of new seasons, I am the first one to drag my mummy shopping!

T: Telepathy – If I had one gift to share with my best friend!

U: My name begins with a U πŸ˜€ – crazy right?

maple 6
V: “Without a P as in Venezuela” – Quoting Thomson from Tin Tin

W: Webs – my greatest fear is to get tangled in one!

X: X-rays – I love getting them – how cool is it to see your own bones πŸ˜€

Y: Yawn – something I do much too much of!

maple 7
Z: Zoologist – only recently learnt they were real…

‘Now I know my ABC, next time won’t you sing with me’ πŸ˜€

Thank you again my friends, these awards were fantastic and I had so much fun! I would now like to pass them all on to these ultra multi-talented food bloggers – Congrats mes amis!

Now, um, besides my sappiness and overwhelming happiness I shared through said sappiness, you must have been looking at the photos. One after the other after the other. Since this post is already so long, I will cut to the chase for once and not tantalisingly tease as I always do – or at least try to πŸ˜‰

Maple Raisin Ice Cream. MAPLE RAISIN ICE CREAM.



This ice cream isΒ  my favourite I have made to date.Β It is soft and creamy, eggless, and has the most delicious flavour I have ever tasted. It is the perfect blend. And I am in love with it. Absolutely and utterly in love with it.

Printable Recipe!

TheΒ bacon had to go. Obviously. Raisins had to replace it. Obviously. I also decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup and increased the maple syrup to a whopping 1 cup. Obviously.

Also I dissolved the sugar in the milk not by beating it but by heating it because that is what I find easier (just below simmering point then take off heat). And just a couple of tips:

maple 8

  • The mixture will be runny, even after refrigeration (at least 24 hrs) but don’t stress, just churn away in your beloved ice cream maker πŸ˜€

So as a thank you again to you all, I make this ice cream. Since it cannot be sent around the world without melting in less than 10 minutes, I enjoy it on behalf of you all πŸ˜‰

maple 2
Much love my friends πŸ˜€

    Yay on the awards and on the half year mark!!

    And a definite yay for this ice cream. I LOVVVVEEEEEE maple ice cream but haven’t yet made it myself. I will now!! πŸ™‚

    Congrats on your awards! They are so well-deserved! πŸ˜€ This ice cream looks incredible! Even though I worked at an ice cream shop when i was in high school, I still am crazy in love with ice cream! Now that it is getting warmer in Chicago, I have to start using my ice cream maker again. This would be a great recipe to break it in with! πŸ˜€

    • Thank you very much my friend on both counts πŸ˜€
      And I can’t believe you worked in an ice cream shop you are so lucky! Warm or not, I am always first choosing my ice cream maker – hope you enjoy it to welcome your warmed weather πŸ™‚

  5. Maple ice cream – YUM YUM YUM! I’d be digging my fingers into that, without a care in the world! Loved the ABCs – I love horror movies too though lately, I’ve been a bit chicken to watch any and I didn’t know that about butterflies, I caught them all the time as a kid and they always flew away :S

    • Thank you so much πŸ˜€
      I know exactly what you mean, this ice cream is for the shameless πŸ˜‰
      And I desperately think horror movies are a necessity in life – seen in woman in black???
      Don’t worry it might be a rumour that is just what I have heard :S

    Congratulation for 6 month to be blogger chip! I’m still wondering how could you have lots of fan, friends from blogging on your short period.. that is just amazing! your Ice cream looks fabulous, looks soft and smooth, love it


    • Thank you so much my friend – 6 months is actuallly quite a while to me but it does take comments and becoming a regular reader πŸ˜€
      Which I love doing!
      Glad you liked the ice cream too – it is exactly as you described it! πŸ™‚

      Choc Chip Uru

  8. Congrats on more awards. I love your blog.

    I also love this ice cream. Ice cream is my absolute favourite dessert and I make it all the time. I’ve never made ice cream with a cup of maple syrup though. (Rum raisin with a lot of rum)

    Going to try this one.

    • Thank you very much πŸ˜€
      Nice to see you are another ice cream obsessee like me – rum and raisin is soooo nice but I think I prefer maple syrup (do you have a recipe on your blog because I would love to see it! :))
      Enjoy this one my friend!

  9. I love watching blogs transform.. I’ve had mine for almost 2 months and even from my 1st post til now it’s changed SOOO much.

    I just bought the ice cream attachment for my KitchenAid and it’s currently in the freezer waiting to be used! I might need to try your recipe! =)

    • Me too – it is slow and gradual but build up is awesome πŸ˜€
      And can’t believe you have only been blogging for 2 months! That is incredible πŸ™‚
      So good!
      And if your ice cream attachment IS in the freezer I see no harm in that πŸ˜‰

  13. Happy Anniversary, CCU, and congratulations on yet more awards (which you totally deserve). I once had a college teacher who put my essays on the bottom of the pile–said he was saving the best for last. Well, that’s exactly what I do with your blog. Each time I spot it, I save it to read it last, because it’s the best!

    • Thank you my friend – I appreciate your comments as some of the best I receive πŸ˜€
      It makes me feel so good that you think of my blog in this way

    Way to go, girl! You’re an amazing blogger (much more amazing than I think I am), so I’m pretty sure that you’ll go a long, long way! Congratulations on all the awards! So well deserved, my dear! More power to you and your blog.
    And before I forget, the ice cream sounds really good. It’s a lot better than the maple chocolate bacon ice cream which I find a little weird. hehe. It will be a good alternative to the maple pecan ice cream that I love.

    • Thank you so much my friend – but ahem have you seen your dishes?One of the most creative and best for sure! Your kind words though have made my day πŸ˜€
      I am also really glad you enjoyed my version of the ice cream – for once, chocolate in ice cream doesn’t feel right to me as well!
      And this ice cream with some pecans in it (like my mum eats it) will be perfect for you – enjoy!

    Firstly, congrats on your awards. If anyone deserves them, it’s definitely you. Know why?

    1. You post so much delicious goodies.
    2. You work hard at your blog. You keep things fresh, tempting and you are consistent with your posts. Above all, you take the time to visit other blogs, comment, comment on the comments on your blog, go to school, study and cook/bake. Sometimes I wonder if you’re allotted an extra 6 hours each time. Where do you find the time?
    3. You are one of the friendliest and sweetest bloggers I have met.

    For all these reasons YOU, my friend, rightfully deserve allllll awards bestowed to you. Congrats on making it to 6 months and I wish you many many many years more. Don’t stop tantalizing us with all your enticing treats.

    Secondly, I would like to let you know that I appreciate you. You are one of my most consistent blog visitors and I know it takes time to even leave a comment so thank you for that. Thank you for always saying encouraging things that gives me that motivation I need to continue on my blogging path.

    Thirdly, thank you so much for awarding me. I am grateful that you thought of me to make mention on your blog to your readers. I truly appreciate that!


    • There is so much I have to be thankful for from you – I am blushing πŸ™‚
      My blog has become my after school activity – some kids play football, I visit and comment on inspirational people like you’s blogs πŸ˜€
      Always find time for the things you love no?
      I am thrilled you enjoy my blog so much – just as much as I enjoy your fresh and wonderful entertaining writing and dishes!

    • Thank you very very very much my friend πŸ˜€ – Support like this is what fuels me and my blog πŸ™‚
      Very happy you enjoyed the ice cream too – if anything is going to flavour up something good, I promise it is maple syrup!

    I’m excited to see what you will make for your 2-year anniversary if 1 1/2 years brings such a delicious treat! I liked reading your alphabet revelations about yourself–very cool. Congrats on the award!

    • It is actually 1/2 a year I have been blogging, not 1 1/2 sorry πŸ˜›
      But I would love to make it to 2 years and beyond πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much my friend on both counts as well!

  45. Your blog really has come a long way in such a short time, so it is easy to understand why your blogger friends keep honoring you with awards-it is so well deserved.
    Maple ice cream does sound like a tasty treat and I love the change with the raisins. I will need to try this, but first I have the grueling task of organizing my freezer to make room for it.
    Glad you are in my circle of friends!

    • My friend you are one of the most supportive blogger friends I have. I too am most lucky to have you in my circle πŸ™‚
      Thanks for enjoying my ice cream too! And how I permanently made a spot was to allocate a sweet section in the freezer – my mum doesn’t touch that bit πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you very much πŸ˜€
      This ice cream definitely added to the celebration and can I be honest? Maple and raisin should be compulsory flavours πŸ˜‰
