Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Ice cream has been around a very long time.  You wonder how long? The Old Farmer’s Almanac has a brief history right here.  Even though President Thomas Jefferson is often credited for discovering and bring over ice cream recipes from Europe, ice cream was actually first written about after a dinner at Maryland’s Governor Thomas Bliden’s home on May 19, 1774.  Thomas Jefferson was a big fan of ice cream though and here is his very own recipe from his home at Monticello.

Ice cream now has so many different flavors and several ways to eat it.  The ice cream sandwich is the ultimate delicious way to partake in divulging this wonderful cold, creamy treat. How perfect on a hot summer day too, yes? Here is a recipe from Southern Living for Easy Chocolate-Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches.  It’s a simple recipe and you quite possibly have all of these ingredients in your home already.  Click here to find other fun ice cream sandwich recipes too!

PS.  What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? Share here and let’s see what other say too! Mine? Well…I like vanilla. When I am in a sassy and daring mood I prefer praline 🙂
