    Hi! Ramya,
    Thanks for dropping by my blog.

    Before I had an ice cream maker I used to make the same base then freeze it then for every hour I go back to the freezer and mix it to stir in the cold custard with the semi frozen ones so it won't harden into big block. I didn't taste as smooth as ones made with ice cream maker but it will do.

    You should try it, its good

    These sound good -- and healthy as well. I'm fond of Dorie Greenspan's pumpkin muffins --They are also full of healthy ingredients. These sound great!
