Creamy, no-churn, homemade ice cream that’s only 4 ingredients.
Happy Veteran’s Day!
The month of November is about giving thanks. When we sit around the dinner table with our loved ones on Thanksgiving, we pause and give thanks for the things that we have. I am asking that today we all pause and give thanks to the people who have fought for the things that we have. Our Veterans.
I am privileged to be able to share a wonder movement from Marie Callender’s with you, called “Comforts from Home.” We have all heard of Marie Callender’s. They are known for creating homemade meals and desserts made with high-quality ingredients and signature special touches that your family can slow down and savor together. This fall, Marie Callender’s announced the return of the Comforts from Home Project, a partnership with the United Service Organizations (USO) that’s dedicated to bringing the heartwarming feelings, flavors, and favorites of home to those who miss it most, those of our loved ones in the U.S. Military. The program ensures that our troops have a place to celebrate every holiday, bringing the comforts of home that can often be taken for granted, such as seasonal meals, company, entertainment and a chance to relax away from the stress of active service. Last year, with consumers’ overwhelming support, Marie Callender’s brought care packages to a very deserving group of servicemen and women stationed overseas through a $250,000 donation to the USO2GO program.
From September 1, 2015 through January 29, 2016, consumers can help give to the USO Operation Celebration program by entering the on-pack code from one of the more than 51 million specially-marked Marie Callender’s frozen meals or desserts at . Each code entered online equals a $0.50 donation to the USO. Join Marie Callender’s in helping to bring a little bit of home sweet home to our U.S. servicemen and women overseas.

I thought I would share with you, so me of the important Veteran’s in my life. Here is a short video clip:
To share the Comforts From Home campaign with you, I was asked to chose one of the meals or desserts from the participating products.
I chose the small apple pie. I mean what dessert is more American than APPLE PIE?! These small pies are a perfect dessert for two.
Although you can cook them in the microwave, I chose to follow the baking instructions on the box. Easy and delicious.
I topped the warm pie with two scoops of Vanilla Caramel Swirl Ice Cream. That creamy ice cream on that warm cinnamon-y apple pie, was the perfect dessert for my honey and me.
Aside from being so tasty, the best part about this ice cream? FOUR INGREDIENTS and it’s NO CHURN!
- 1 (14 ounce) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup caramel syrup
