Ice Cream Recipes

There are still a few days left in July to enjoy National Ice Cream Month.

Thanks to all who shared their homemade ice cream recipes with us. Now, we want to share those recipes with you! We will be making both vanilla and chocolate at the station to enjoy this Friday. Won’t you join us in making your own?

This recipe is from Cindy Kahrs


4 1/2 C half & half
2 1/4 C sugar
4 1/2 T instant coffee
6 C whipping cream

Combine all in cream canister. Stir until sugar dissolves. Freeze as directed.

*This recipe is for a large ice cream maker-do the math for a smaller version


These next two are from Elelanor McChesney

Here is the recipe (somewhat modified) my mother used. She had farm fresh eggs and plenty of cream and milk.
Figure one egg (or equivalent amount of Egg Beaters) for each quart of ice cream you are making.
One half as many cups of sugar as the number of eggs 1-1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla or to taste; few drops of lemon extract; dash of salt.
Beat these ingredients together until light and fluffy. Add 1-1 1/2 boxes of instant pudding mix, any flavor desired and beat a little longer. Add 1 quart cream or half and half (more or less as desired) and beat again. (I have used liquid coffee creamer for lactose intolerant people.) Pour into ice cream canister and add enough whole milk to fill the can about 3/4 full. Freeze as directed.


For 1 gallon of ice cream:
1 small pkg. of instant chocolate pudding mix
2 eggs or equivalent amoung of Egg Beaters
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups malted milk powder
1 cup whipping cream or liquid non-dairy coffee creamer
2 pints half and half
Whip the eggs; add sugar, cocoa. Add other ingredients alternately with malted milk powder. Add to freezer can and enough whole milk to fill the can 3/4 full. Freeze as directed.

They Live!

It’s fuzzy…but here’s a picture of our biggest Sea Munster. We think he might be the biggest because he’s eaten all but one of the others. It always looks as though the other remaining one is hiding from him in fear.

National Ice Cream Month

It has come to our attention that July is National Ice Cream Month and we’re a little sad that we haven’t been celebrating it already. After much debate on the air this morning as to the best kind of ice cream, Rocky and Chelsie decided that you just can’t beat homemade vanilla.

It just wouldn’t be right for us to continue to not celebrate National Ice Cream Month, so we need your help! We are looking for your favorite homemade ice cream recipe. We’ll compile a list, share the recipes with you and choose one for us to make and try at the KCLY studios.

Send your recipe to us in the comment section of the blog, by emailing us at or by posting it to our Facebook page.

Join us in continuing to Celebrate Summer!

Digging into info about the music, the pop culture, the headlines and more.

Saving for Later

My birthday is coming up soon! I realize I’m getting older and am supposed to start hating my birthday – but I don’t, at least not yet. And thinking about my birthday starts me thinking about presents! ( I know – I’m just like a kid.) And while thinking about presents, it made me think of that other time of the year when everyone is buying gifts. Christmas is less than 6 months away, and it’s never too soon to start planning ahead.

One of my favorite Bank Accounts is the Christmas Club account. Most banks and credit unions offer some sort of account similar to this. It’s usually a savings account you transfer money into weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or whatever works for you. These accounts typically don’t allow you to withdraw money, or might penalize you if you do withdraw money, before a certain day (typically sometime in late October.) Talk about a good incentive to put some money away, and leave it there! You then receive all those savings, either by check or transferring into your checking account, so you’re ready to spend it.

I have an idea of how much money I spend every holiday season, I divided that by about 40 or 45, and transferred that amount out of my checking account and into this Special Occasion Account weekly. And yes, I know there’s 52 weeks in a year, but this gives me a little leeway. If you start an account like this now, you’ll need to figure the amount you want to have saved up, the number of weeks you have until you’ll need the money, and how often you want to transfer money (maybe every payday or maybe every Monday.) And some people will just deposit money whenever they can. Maybe once a month you gather up all the coins from everyone’s pockets and deposit that money, or maybe you have a little side project and so all the money from that goes into this account.

Being able to save ahead of time, especially for a time of year when you know you’ll spend a large amount of money, is very important. By using these savings, you won’t have to put everything on a credit card and end up paying those Finance Fees. So call your bank today, ask them about your options, and start saving!

A Sea Munster Lives!

For those who have been following the Sea Monkey saga. This morning I came in to find one of our new pets; swimming like crazy. I think we have to name the first one ‘Herman Munster’. I hope the rest of his family comes to life soon.

Again; I will really try not to tell Chelsie “I told you so…”
