Today marks the first day of National Ice Cream Month (as designate by Ronald Reagan in 1984 -- never followed his politics much since he was in office when I was just five through nine years old -- but this is one of his ideas I can get behind!)
Check back with us daily for news, recipes, interviews during the month of July.
Today is also Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day. This one is not as "official" as National Ice Cream Month or National Ice Cream Day (also designated by Reagan -- it falls on the third Sunday in July) but it still gives you an excuse to eat ice cream (as if you need one!).
One of the most creative flavors I have ever made and actually enjoyed in all it's creativity (because both garlic and durian fruit, while creative, just aren't that good) was David Lebovitz's Candied Bacon Ice Cream.
What about you? Do you have a creative flavor you have either made or bought that is worth a mention?
