My husband’s marriage proposal was incredibly unique and extremely romantic.
We were hiking in a canyon way out in Malibu (the same trail where we got lost on our third date — which is a long story for another time).
It seemed out of nowhere that a guy from a band I loved appeared from behind a cliff and began to sing “The Sweetest Thing.” (And no, it wasn’t Bono from U2. ;-)) In shock, I looked at my now husband, who was suddenly holding a beautifully framed “timeline” of our seven month relationship up to that day, a gorgeous ring, and . . . a super cool ice-cream maker!
Yup! You heard me, an ice-cream maker was a part of my marriage proposal!
I love my ice-cream maker! And not only for its sentimental value, but because for over ten years I’ve been making fantastic ice-cream and gelato in it!
Today is my Mom’s birthday and there’s no better excuse to make this Chocolate-Chocolate Gelato! My Mom’s a very serious chocoholic and this gelato is perfect for her — it’s intensely rich, creamy and unbelievably delicious.
My favorite part in the gelato or ice-cream making process, is when I first remove the lid to reveal this site. Oh my! I love it!
