Pineapple Ice Cream

1 can Pineapple chunks (drained)
2 1/4 cups sugar
Juice of 3 lemons or 9 Tbsp lemon juice
1 can evaporated milk
2 quarts WHOLE milk
1/2 pint whipping cream
(of course you also need LOTS of ice and salt to add on top while machine is spinning)
  • Puree pineapple chunks (you can puree as much or as little as you like)
  • Combine first 3 ingredients and stir
  • Add the rest and put into ice cream maker
  • Continue according to ice cream maker instructions
  • Serve right away to enjoy super soft ice cream or put in freezer to harden up more
(this is the cheap walmart ice cream maker I have. Nothing fancy but it does the trick and is super delicious)

No Rise Pizza Dough

This dough isn't quite as fluffy as the kind you let rise for an hour, but it's pretty good if you're impatient like me. I wanted to bookmark it for future use.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)


  1. Combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl. Mix in oil and warm water. Spread out on a large pizza pan. Top as desired.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees C (190 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes.
