Summer just screams for homemade ice cream. Growing up every summer my Grandparents would put on an ice cream social. The ice cream social was made of lots of homemade ice cream, cakes, cookies, all sorts of toppings, and every available relative. It was so much fun. Some of the machines weren’t electric and we had to turn those ourselves. I have always missed those days as an adult, it was the big party to go to.
