With several friends who are absolute ice cream fanatics, I thought it was about time to check out some ice cream recipe books! Trust me, your sweet tooth will thank me.
I have a friend who believes that the day isn’t complete unless she’s had a small serving of ice cream. Seriously! Every. Single Day. Meanwhile, my sister-in-law believes that ice cream is a food group and can be considered dinner. My kind of gal 🙂 This post contains affiliate links.
