Ice Cream Maker Giveaway!

Celebrating summer with an ice cream maker giveaway!

School’s out! That means it’s time for all things summer, like running through sprinklers, catching fireflies, and making homemade ice cream. Let’s all scream for ice cream! Yipeeeeeeeee!


These counter top ice cream makers are quite handy dandy. Prepare your favorite ice cream flavor, or get creative and make your very own unique flavor, then churn it up in about 20-30 minutes. I don’t know about you, but that’s a dangerous thing in our home. But also a good thing. A very good thing.

I hope you, and those close to you, enjoy a safe and happy summer! xoxo

Giveaway has ended! Thank you for entering. A winner has been selected and contacted!

Congratulations to Ashley from!

    My favorite ice cream flavor has got to be dark chocolate with roasted almonds. This makes me sound much more sophisticated than I actually am, but trust me: It is so. good.

    I love coffee and salted caramel ice cream. So delicious! I also love mango and strawberry frozen yogurt/sorbets. I can eat so much of it that I’m so glad serve yourself froyo places are so expensive and I try to behave and not spend more than $5 each time.

    I live in the fabulous Skagit Valley and we have the world’s best strawberries here. And that is the flavor I would pick. Not sure what my mom did, but one particular batch of homemade strawberry ice cream still makes my mouth water. It might have been all of the cranking my brothers and I did on the other kind of ice cream maker. It was perfect.

    Thank you.
