This Butter Pecan Ice Cream is easy to make and tastes insanely good!
I know this looks really good and you are in awe of my awesomeness.
You are probably wondering how we can eat ice cream when it's so freaking cold outside. It is a hard concept.
All I can tell you is it's warm and toasty in the house. So, that's the loophole. You now know the secret of the universe.
I probably should have kept that to myself. Er, forget I said anything. There's no loophole. Hey what's that behind you? *tries to edit quickly*
We went out to the barn today to see horsey. I was so pleased when the farrier turned up. Not because he's a total cutie-patootie but because he brought his girlfriend with him. She's an old friend of mine and mini-me's.
Mr Cutie Patootie walked in and when I stopped staring looked around there was his darling girlfriend. I adore this girl and have such fond memories of her from years past.
She is older than mini-me but she was one of the only ones who didn't care about stuff like that and took mini-me under her wing and made her feel welcome. Mini-me is very shy. Back then she was uber shy. This young gal made sure to always talk to her and I remember finding them sitting under a tree outside talking one day. I am ever grateful to Anna-Marie for always being kind to my daughter.
I had not seen her in years. We keep in touch via facebook but that's not the same. Today we got caught up. Love days like that.
Doesn't hurt to have some eye candy wandering around in the background either let me tell you.

Ah ha! We know about your ice cream loophole now! 🙂 So you got to "gwak" at some hot stuff and eat some cold stuff... I see that as a win-win. I'm glad your daughter and you found an old friend. She seems like a nice person. 🙂 Lovely ice cream!! It's one of my favorite flavors. PS.. congrats on TOP 9 today (twice)! Way to go!!
I think I actually snorted out loud reading this. Really, Kim, I need to read your posts when I am all alone.
That ice cream sounds so good...well, maybe not while we are experiencing another cold snap with stupid "emergency" heat, but in a few days when it's 75 again.
My husband would love it if I made this for him. Thanks for sharing.
One thing I've never been called: eye candy. It could be that I'm the guy who eats plenty of ice cream, regardless of the weather. Yours looks outstanding, by the way! The ice cream, that is.

ha ha! Too funny! How come no shots of "Mr Cutie Patootie" to share with the rest of us!? No fair! Poor guy, probably totally mortified! Hooray for eye candy! And Ice cream! Especially Butter Pecan which is my fave! Going to try and make a sugar free version of this for my low carb thing going on! I love that you have lots of nuts in there, just how I like it! You rock Kim Bee! I totally heart you!
The moral of your story is the best...LOL...but the ice cream is a close second! Yum, yum!
PS...Anna-Marie is a gem!

What a sweet girl! I was so shy as a kid two, so that warms my heart 🙂 And a warm heart needs some cold ice cream!

Obviously you and I are long lost twins or some such thing. We posted ice cream on the same day in the middle of January! That is somewhat amazing isn't it? This looks SO good Kim...I'll be right over 🙂
You know, you and me we need to talk. It's getting to the point where I dread Sundays because I know I'll inevitably slobber with desire over your ice cream creations and have horrible self control. This can't go on - what do you have to say for yourself?!
You're right, I am in awe of your awesomeness! This ice cream looks delicious. Soooo good. Even though it's freezing outside. 😉

My brother was a farrier once upon a time and yeah, he was buff. They kinda have to be, don't they. ::sigh::
Anyhow, the ice cream is amazing. Totally delicious-looking. 🙂

Kim Bee, I think I said it before.. you're such an amazing ice-cream queen. I have been bookmarking so many of your ice-cream recipe. Probably I should just have an ice-cream party and 'force' all my friends to eat them. LOL.. that way I get to try out all of them.. hehe... I love having butter pecan and chocolate ice-cream together. They are such great combo. Have a good week!! hugggss
I love butter pecan ice cream... It's one of my favorites YUM. Yours looks fantastic.
I love butter pecan ice cream. I keep avoiding purchasing an ice cream maker in fear that I might start making and eating ice cream everyday...yum!
Wow, this ice cream recipe is so simple, no eggs. I have to give it a go! Love your story, too, Kim.
Hahahahaha you always make me smile my dear! I love reading your posts! <3
And I love this recipe! It is actually a good time for me as it is summer down here (even though unexpectedly cool)! YUM!
Lol always a perk to get both!
Thank you. I think facebook was invented by the devil. People don't know how to communicate any more.
