Happy Monday!  Today I’m sharing several links for the ever-popular 2-ingredient no-churn ice cream that is ubiquitous on the internet.  It’s everywhere, frankly, because it’s GOOD!  And EASY!  I know purists are rolling their collective eyeballs at this recipe, but after holding out for a long time (my friend gave me an ice cream maker a few years ago, after all) I have finally embraced it.  To alter these recipes for small batch, use half a can of sweetened condensed milk, and 1 cup of heavy cream as a base.  To make enough for just one serving, use a quarter-can of SCM and 1/2 cup heavy cream.

The beauty, or rather, the luxury of a great small recipe is that you can use judicious amounts of luscious ingredients–precisely because it is small. Eat it; savor it; it’s gone.   Then it’s back to eating mostly healthy food.  You may have heard this referred to as the 80/20 rule:  80% healthy food, 20% indulgence.  It has totally worked for me long-term, which is why I love some good heavy cream and egg yolks when a great recipe is begging for them!

For some reason my nostalgic memories of the tomato soup brand I ate when I was growing up do not match the actual taste of it when I eat it now.  How can this be? I think it’s akin to when I finally went back as an adult to see the house where I lived as a child. It had seemed so spacious to me then:  full of nooks and play places, room to crash around, build forts, dress up, and generally be mildly mischievous.  But oh how tiny it was when I finally saw it again!  Maybe this has happened to you.  Anyway, {X}-brand tomato soup just doesn’t do it for me anymore.  I need something luscious and creamy, a little spicy, and yep–quick to make.

This is a “my evening plans got cancelled” meal that will make you glad you stayed home!  I love Indian food, and I love it made fresh.  This meal comes together in just over half an hour, and is just as good as going out.  If you enjoy a no-meat meal every so often, fire up your oven, turn on your stove, and in no time you’ll have your own bit of spicy luxury.
