This may be to others' tastes; Ample Hills is popular and busy, but these recipes are far too junked up for my taste.  I could also do without the cutesy storytelling and self-congratulatory tone of the filler content.  There isn't anything in this book that anyone who is serious about small batch ice cream hasn't already read, and this book leans way too heavily on kitsch - both in its blatant branding and its recipes.
