The classic ice cream recipe has come to be a staple of the Northridge fashion and beauty scene.
But for Andrea Bessette, who was born in New York City and moved to California with her parents in the early 1970s, the recipe had a very different history.
Growing up in the ’60s and ’70s, she and her friends used to make ice cream in their garage or on the back porch, making it as easy as possible for her family to make and enjoy ice cream at home.
She recalled that in her backyard, people would come in to have their ice cream sundaes with their family members or their kids, while the ice cream was in the fridge.
But Bessettes family would never really get a chance to try the recipe out.
“They would always make ice creams and try to replicate it,” Bessnette said.
“It was a really big, big deal.
And I think people just kind of wanted to have it, so it wasn’t that much of a big deal.”
Bessette recalled the recipe as a kind of family tradition, a way to have a fun day when the kids were at school.
“I think there’s something so comforting and simple about it, but you’re not going to get it any other way, you know?
I don’t think it was ever going to be really good,” she said.”
The ice cream is so rich, and so rich and creamy, it’s not really something you can just get in the freezer and go.
It has to be cooked.
And then you’ve got to keep it in the refrigerator.”
Bissette, now 73, recalled that when she was growing up, her father was a cook, and she had a lot of cooking experience as well.
“He was an amazing cook,” she recalled.
“You can really get some good tips and help from other cooks.
He was so talented and so talented, and he cooked so many different things.”

She just had a scoop of ice cream and a bowl of cream, and that’s all you needed to make it.
“That was really easy, and then I got really into the ice-making and cooking,” she explained.
“Then I started making my own ice creamer.”
The original recipe was simple enough, but Bessadette realized that she had some questions that needed to be answered.
“Why does this recipe have so many steps?
Why is the ice so thick?
Why does it take so long to make?
What’s in it?
And I couldn’t find the answer.
It’s just so much different,” she recounted.
“But after years of searching and finding, I found this recipe in an old magazine that had this recipe.
And that was enough for me.
I knew that this was the way it should be.”
The recipe Bessades was looking for has remained one of the most popular in the Northwood community.
“We’re always looking for new ways to improve this recipe, and we’re always making new recipes,” Bessa said.
In recent years, Bessarine and her husband, Rick, have also started a new restaurant, Old Fashiony Recipe, that serves ice cream to those in the community who can’t afford it on their own.
“We’re really happy to be able to serve ice cream that is not only good for you, but good for your wallet, too,” Besson said.
