Today marks the first real day of Summer Break for my kids: no alarms waking them up, no school to get to this morning. And with summer comes one of my all-time favorite things: ice cream! A trip to a local ice cream shop or a treat from the ice cream truck are as much a part of summer around here as sleeping in, flip flops, and the pool. But I thought we’d try making some ice cream cakes and other ice cream treats here at home. These recipes are pretty simple… and probably cost less than buying treats for my family of 5 at an ice cream shop anyway. Give them a try!
