I am an emotional eater - there is no denying that. I eat when I'm happy. I eat when I'm sad. I eat when I'm anxious and I eat when I'm trying to keep myself awake to finish work even though all I want to do is go to sleep.
Some people think emotional eating is a problem...but I tell myself it's an endearing quality. Every emotional eater has their go to food - mine is a pint of Ben & Jerry's Milk & Cookies Ice Cream.
Last week, when I was feeling particularly stressed over something (I can't even remember what it was now...so obviously it wasn't that important), and I went to the store to grab some Milk & Cookies. But I couldn't find any. I got down on my hands and knees and searched all the way to the back of the freezer, but they were out.
Instead of picking a different flavor like a rational person would, I decided I was not going to end my day without some Milk & Cookies. So, I decided I was going to make my own. No Churn Ice Cream is really easy to make, and with a good base, you can essentially make any flavor you want - even your favorite Ben & Jerry's!

This sounds great, and I love the "Girl Scout" get-it-done-attitude, Lindsay, but ... you have to wait OVERNIGHT for it to freeze, honey!!!! Overnight!! I, too, am an emotional eater, and when I need my fix, I need it now, ha, ha! You have way more patience than me!
Overnight is just a precaution to make sure it's really all the way frozen. I took it out after a solid 4 hours...no way I waited all night!
