Ice cream is a staple in my summer diet. In fact, most nights, I'd be happy to skip dinner and go straight to a big ole bowl of cookies and cream or mint chocolate chip or pistachio or mocha-java or rocky road... (I could keep going, but I'll spare you my never-ending list.) I'm pretty sure my kids feel the same considering it's all they ask for from the time they get out of camp until the time I finally give in and dollop a giant scoop of vanilla bean deliciousness. 

Of course, as much as I love these classic and simple flavors, I'm always excited to switch things up and try new twists on this traditional summer dessert. In fact, I especially enjoy eating ice cream when it has been transformed into a totally different dessert!

To celebration National Ice Cream Day (July 20), I've rounded up a few of the most epic ice cream recipes. I scream, you scream, we all scream for these amazing cold creations.
