    I would love to cook from Ice Cream & Friends - I LOVE homemade ice cream and have made every single recipe from the Ben & Jerry's Homemade Dessert Cookbook, so I need more ideas :)

  • hedder14  on  5/17/2017 at 8:22 AM

    Both look great but oil must say, might salads has been in my wish list for a bit

  • lapetitebaker  on  5/17/2017 at 8:31 AM

    After many years of wanting one, I finally bought an ice cream machine over the winter so I would definitely make something from Ice Cream & Friends first.

  • daniellespinato1  on  5/17/2017 at 9:06 AM

  • Karla123  on  5/18/2017 at 4:32 AM

    Mighty Salads! It would give me a chance to eat my healthful garden greens and explore new ways to prepare a salad.

  • lhudson  on  5/18/2017 at 6:39 AM

    Mighty Salads since I am trying to lose some weight.

  • jupflute  on  5/18/2017 at 2:19 PM

    Hopefully salads since I try to be healthy, but it probably wouldn't take long for me to come up with an excuse to make ice cream.

  • sgump  on  5/18/2017 at 3:31 PM

    Although I have a weakness for ice cream (and even though summer is approaching), I'd start with Mighty Salads . . . since, perhaps because summer is approaching, nothing beats a huge salad for dinner on a warm evening!

  • MollyB  on  5/18/2017 at 4:23 PM

    Might Salads. I like ice cream, but I'll always go for savory over sweet.

  • Laura64  on  5/18/2017 at 6:13 PM

    It's summer! Ice Cream & Friends, duh.

  • nomadchowwoman  on  5/23/2017 at 8:57 AM

    Tempting as Ice Cream and Friends would be, Mighty Salads is what I need to be eating these days.

    Mighty Salads!

  • skbaker3791  on  5/23/2017 at 8:09 PM

    They both sound fantastic, but I think the Mighty Salads edges out to the lead for me.

  • MmeFleiss  on  5/24/2017 at 1:08 PM

    Mighty Salads. With summer finally arriving I look forward to endless days of salads of all kinds.

  • Ozma81  on  5/25/2017 at 9:59 AM

    Salads - but only because my ice cream machine is still in storage.

  • stargirl  on  5/25/2017 at 10:22 AM

  • juliafj  on  5/27/2017 at 2:49 AM

    I would finally be justified in buying that ice cream maker on my wishlist and use Ice Cream and Friends! And then I'd eat a lot of salads so I could eat ice cream every day.

  • aeader  on  5/27/2017 at 7:04 AM

    I would love to explore Mighty Salads as I need some fresh ideas for work lunches.

    Got to vote for ice cream! Always eat dessert first and be ready for anything that life throws at you.

  • Thenette  on  6/9/2017 at 6:45 PM

    I would like to eat from the ice cream book first, but I know ice cream takes time so while waiting for that, I'd have to make a might salad!

  • Dmartin997  on  6/9/2017 at 6:52 PM

    Definitely salads

  • CuisineQueen874  on  6/9/2017 at 9:16 PM

    Those blood orange negroni pops sound awesome...but, due to my current dietary restrictions, I'd have to cook from the Food 52 Mighty Salads book first. I'd make the coconut rice with mango, bell pepper and lime.

  • lauriesk  on  6/9/2017 at 9:25 PM

    Ice Cream and Friends.
