Strawberry Ice Cream

I wish I had bought my ice cream maker sooner!  My first try at making this strawberry ice cream was a success.  Homemade ice cream tastes so much better and it will be hard for me to buy grocery store ice cream again.  It is so delicious, especially with fresh strawberries.  I brought this straweberry ice cream for dessert when I had dinner with a friend recently and she called me a week later to tell me she's still thinking about how good the strawberry ice cream was!  That must tell you how good this strawberry ice cream really tastes.  It is creamy and delicious and every bite tastes like fresh strawberries.  I suggest you go out and get an ice cream maker ASAP and make this strawberry ice cream!  Enjoy!
