Sweet & salty goodness
Another ice cream post, you ask?
Yes. Oh, yes. (and there will be more, don’t worry!)
This has been one of the most requested flavors from family members. So, in preparation for several batches, Frank went to Costco and bought a huge bag of pistachios.
I love the sweet and salty flavor combo…yum. Don’t be afraid to use salted pistachios, I promise, you’ll love it too!
