    I want to buy the ice cream attachment for my KitchenAid mixer so bad, but anywhere I see it it has horrible reviews that it busts and leaks the coolant. Is yours still intact??

  2. How to replace half and half? it doesn't exist in my country, just regular milk.

    When he says half and half, I think he means milk………

    Don't have a kitchen aid mixer to mix the egg and sugar you can do it by hand.

    Proceeds to use a special Kitchenaid mixer bowl for the mixer to make the ice cream.

    That was a very good video. I will use it when I make my first batch of French Vanilla Ice Cream.

    I love this recipe can you change the vanilla for a different flavor? I want to make butter pecan but I think you need make extract

    Based on the vids by kitchenaide, you took it out of the ice cream maker bowl way too early.

    I think you should have used 9 eggs yolks instead of 8. Other than that it looks good.
