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'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.
