"We all have hometown appetites. Every other person is a bundle of longing for the simplicities of good taste once enjoyed on the farm or in the hometown they left behind." --Clementine Paddleford

Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Chips
There's this theory, popular in America, that if you avoid eating things that taste good you'll live a long and happy life. I personally believe that days spent denying oneself a spoonful of homemade ice cream can only tenuously be called a "life." I made this bowlful of joy from a recipe I found on the web, tweaking it a bit and adding some peanut butter chips in the final minute of churning. The first bite made my jowls hurt and eyes lose focus for a moment--meaning that the first ice cream of the summer was as unqualified success.
