Did someone say ice cream?!

It's no secret around here that I love ice cream.



And, having a nut allergy really limits what kinds of ice cream I can eat... unless, I make it myself.

In order to make ice cream, you need an ice cream maker.  It's one of those kitchen gadgets that makes homemade ice cream possible.


And, thanks to CNS Stores - you too can make homemade ice cream in your kitchen!

CNS Stores recently contacted me about doing a giveaway for my readers.  If you have not heard of CNS stores, you should check them out.  They have over 200 online stores where they sell everything from bedroom furniture, to TV stands, to baby toys and of course, to all-things kitchen!

CNS stores is letting me give away TWO Cuisinart Automatic Ice Cream Makers to two of you!!

Cuisinart ICE-20 - Automatic Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker in White
I happen to have this very same ice cream maker, which we received three years ago for our wedding.  I've used it hundreds of times to make vanilla ice cream, cake batter ice cream, cookie dough ice cream, cherry ice cream, and pineapple orange sherbet!

In twenty minutes, you have a delicious creamy soft-serve consistency ice cream that you can easily serve and scoop into freezer-containers for a more hard-packed version.  One of my favorite features is the open top, so that you can add your fun treats as the ice cream makes!



So, here's how you can have up to 3 chances win your own ice cream maker:


(1) Leave a comment telling me what ice cream flavor you'd love to make.

(2) Follow Finding Joy in My Kitchen (and leave a comment saying that are a follower).

(3) Share this giveaway on your blog, facebook or twitter (and leave a comment with the link to your post or tweet).

Please make sure you have your email address in your comment or linked to your profile so I can contact you if you win.  

The giveaway will be open to US and Canadian readers until Tuesday, April 27, 2010 until 12 midnight EST.  

Two winners will be randomly chosen and announced on Wednesday, April 28th.
