i've been hooked on coconut ice cream from the store. i never really liked soy ice cream, so this stuff is like a revelation to me. we just got ourselves a fancy dancy ice cream maker - anyone have any tried and true recipes? thanks!

Two questions for you all from a new-ish vegetarian:
1. What are your favorite vegetarian cookbooks? I prefer cookbooks with lots of color pictures, a lot of variety, and a mixture of simple/basic recipes (I have three kids and a husband who is kind of a reluctant vegetarian) and more involved ones. Any recommendations you have would be great!
2. What is your go-to recipe for delicious vegetable stock? I have a bunch of leftover veggies and this weekend I'd like to make stock, but want to make sure I do it right the first time.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: Thanks for the suggestions, on both accounts!
What are your best, hands down, cook over and over again recipes? Do you have a favorite veggie blog? My husband and I are eating vegetarian three to four times a week due to health issues (too much lactic acid, borderline high cholesterol) and I'm struggling to find ideas that will satisfy him since he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy.
I had a craving for fresh fruit today, but it being the middle of the winter I was not in the mood to have it cold. I came up with a simple recipe:
3 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp white sugar
1 peeled and cut up orange
1 cut up Asian pear
1 cup blueberries
1. Heat lemon and sugar together in a small pan at a low to medium temperature until sugar is dissolved.
2. Add fruit and stir just until it is hot. Remove from heat immediately and serve. Voila! Fruit that is still crisply fresh, but warms you up on a cold day. Left-overs served cold are probably also good, but it was a hit with my family so it was all eaten up and I've yet to test this theory ;)
Also, if you are looking for more of a winter taste you might try replacing the sugar with maple syrup/sugar and adding pecans or walnuts.
