Now this recipe does not call for egg yolks, which makes a heavier, more custard style of vanilla ice cream which we like for colder seasons with pies, but this one is a bit lighter in feel and the fresh light base gives you endless possibilities for making any flavor your heart desires with toppings. We just happen to love it with fresh berries and fruits.
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 ¼ cups whole milk (not reduced fat)
½ cup white granulated sugar
¼ cup light brown sugar
a pinch of salt
2 t pure vanilla extract
optional - add ¼ to ½ t vanilla bean powder (or fresh scraped vanilla bean paste from 1 vanilla bean). Use your judgment in amount to boost your vanilla flavor to desired level.

It turns out that Jessica is an amazingly talented singer, songwriter, artist and actress. She is a powerhouse singer who is often tapped to sing the national anthem at events, festivals, sports arenas, etc. She learned to sing in church, and her career just bloomed from there. From the time she first sang publicly at the age of 13, she has steadily become an incredible versatile talent.
Jessica has worked in the commercial and film industry, appearing in several different feature films. The arts are obviously what she gravitates towards, there is an undeniable strong pull there. Most recently she recorded and has released her debut hit single "Ashes". Her goal through her music is to bring hope, inspiration and encouragement to all her fans. This debut single nails that perfectly. We are listening and we want more.
This new emotional song "Ashes" is definitely one you'll return to often, we love it. Here is the link to the official music video for this single "Ashes" that you may have heard on local stations very recently: https://youtu.be/Mk3FBbyCWTY - ENJOY!
Jessica says she likes to sing a mixture of things, older and newer, and can sing anything from Elvis, to Sia, to Creed. Now that's a wide variety of interesting music. We bet she has quite an eclectic collection of songs for an entertaining set indeed. In fact, she has recently been working out her vocals and practicing for sets at DeSoto Caverns, so she is ready to show out. Wouldn't you love to hear Jessica sing some of your favorites or even some more beautiful originals?
Please check out our local songstress when you have time, you'll be glad you did. We hope our Alabama businesses take notice as they prepare their weekend line-ups and add Jessica into their mix of live music very soon. And, she's also available for TV, commercial or film spots - she's a natural! Look for a future issue for more information about our Smith Lake talented artist, Jessica Baker. We love supporting local talent in every way we can.
You will find Jessica on Facebook as @imjessicabaker and Instagram as @itsjessicabaker or by website at https://www.jessicabakerofficial.com.
“I feel so blessed to be able to pursue my dreams as a singer, songwriter and as an artist. I truly believe when you are given a gift or a talent, the only way to find fulfillment and purpose in your life is to share it with others."
- Jessica Baker.
