A Mountain Man named . . . well, see for yourself . . .

I met this man last year at Fort Bridger Mountain Man Rendezvous. If you haven't heard of such a thing, click here and consider attending. It will be worth the trip.
Anyway, these rough and tough mountain men don't exactly go by their given names. Here they are known as a name they earned or nicknamed. For example, my grandpa's name is Wayne Mendenhall, but when he attended the rendezvous he was known as Snowy Owl.
When I asked the man above his name, I wasn't surprised to learn his name is Dammit.
Just as he and Bill Cosby explains, throughout his childhood he thought his parents had called his name every time they spoke to him. "Dammit, get over here!"

Easy No Sugar Ice Cream

Yeah, it's been a while since I posted. For that I'm sorry. I've had issues with my camera (it doesn't work), therefore I can't take pictures of artwork or the food I make to post them here. And because I'm a very visual person I have to have pictures, so I don't post.
I've made several recipes that I would love to share, but I question whether you'll even look at it if it doesn't have a picture to it.
This is my test . . . I will post this recipe I came up with on a whim without a picture to show how divine it is and see how many people check it out. Leave comments if you'd like or share. It always helps me out if you share.

The most important thing you need to be able to make ice cream is an ice cream maker. If you don't have one, buy or borrow one, then come back and follow the recipe.

Easy No Sugar Ice Cream

2 quarts of whipping cream or half and half
1 cup honey (raw is better)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Fruit (raspberries, peaches, strawberries, whatever you like) *optional

Stir together with whisk then add to ice cream mixer. Mix until desired thickness then pop it in the freezer for at least three hours. Heaven in a bowl.
