A long, long time ago, during my summer break from college, I joined my two best friends who were working at Stewart's Ice Cream in my hometown of Saratoga Springs, New York.
Dragging ourselves into the ice cream shop after only a few hours sleep (maybe), putting a smile on for our first customers of the morning picking up their gallons of milk, one of our regulars entered the shop and burst out laughing at us. Jeannie ran over to the frozen case with the huge vat of coffee ice cream and proceeded to whip up three frosty glasses of coffee milk shakes.
Coffee ice cream became my favorite that summer and still is to this day, not only because it tastes so delicious, but also the treasured memories it brings of Donna and Jeannie, and our wonderfully carefree time together, that special summer.
This creamy, natural coffee bean infused classic ice cream is adapted from the delightful, highly acclaimed book, The Perfect Scoop, by David Lebovitz. Reheat the coffee-infused milk mixture, on medium heat, until again hot and steamy, but not boiling. Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.


If you like to eat your ice cream in the evening, and coffee keeps you awake all night, feel free to use decaffeinated coffee beans.

Pictured above: we love the built-in bookcases surrounding the closet door in this bedroom spotted on Fantastic Frank. Here's another variation on the same theme — this bed is also flanked by bookshelves, but these are recessed into the wall, for a more modern look. I love how wonderfully simple this one is — just a shelf recessed into the space above the bed. Here's a great solution for a small bedroom: wardrobes on either side of the bed, and cabinets above. Here's a great way to work in a little storage without taking up too much visual space: add a long, low console under a window.
And lastly, this idea is a bit more complicated than some of the others, but we love the look.


Most people focus the lion's share of their budget on kitchens and bathrooms, but a little money, invested wisely, can make a big difference in your bedroom, too. The little niche to the side of the bed is a nice touch — it serves the function of a nightstand, without taking up any space.
This is especially true in a small bedroom, where a few judicious built-ins can add lots of character and storage space, too. On the other side of the room, even more cabinets surround a french door that leads to the outside.
Storage along the sides of the bed niche allows for a place to stash stuff, and a ledge provides a home for art.
