Homemade Ice Cream and Sorbet

Way back when the hubby and I were just dating,I made some killer ice cream--pineapple and vanilla. Everyone raved about it for weeks. Back last year I broke down and bought a plug-in ice cream maker-one of the new fancy looking ones. I used it maybe 2 times and the results were less than what I had hoped for,so I boxed it up and banished it to the cabinet in the laundry room. Lately,we've been craving banana splits and ice cream--anything cool to beat this killer heat wave that's invaded the SOUTH.

I found some great sorbet (pineapple-passion fruit-chocolate)--ice cream (pumpkin pie,cappuccio)--and yogurt recipes. If they turn out,I will definately share them with you guys. I think I didn't freeze everything correctly the last time I used my machine. Wish me luck....I'm going to stash the parts in the freezer and pick out a recipe to try. I'm so excited!! I love ice cream-and yogurt-and sorbet!!!! Oh,and banana splits!! Can you tell I have a sweet tooth today?
