Homemade Banana-Vanilla Ice Cream

There are not too many things in life I like more than homemade ice cream.  One of our families summer traditions is to break out the ice cream maker and experiment with different flavor ice creams.  On this particular day we had bananas, so we made 
Banana-Vanilla Ice Cream. 





Chocolate Chip Brownies and Homemade Ice cream.....pure heaven!



Vanilla Ice Cream

2 cups milk
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups half and half
