Ice cream and summer go together like keg stands and frat parties. And when we heard there was a way that you could actually make soft-serve ice cream at home, we thought it might be too good to be true. But the reviews on this powder pink soft-serve maker from Cuisinart say it’s the real deal. The ice cream takes only a half hour to make, which is great for those of us who have short attention spans and impatient bellies (show of hands?) and you can add virtually any flavor or ingredient. Basil peppermint in a waffle cone, anyone?
