Ice Cream Social Week -- Kickoff Post and a Giveaway! #IceCreamWeek

Welcome to #IceCreamWeek! Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita's Cocina have teamed up with more than 20 of their blog friends to bring you a week full of ice cream treats, including a special ice cream giveaway! Prepare to have your taste buds tempted with some of the best ice cream treats around! Make sure you enter the giveaway for a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and two fabulous ice cream cookbooks so that you can join in on the ice cream fun! 



Hey everyone! In case you haven't noticed, I'm kind of obsessed with my ice cream maker--it might even be becoming my Kitchen VIP, second only to my food processor and Pampered Chef choppers. Each week my freezer has been stocked with at least two new flavors for the members of my household to enjoy. I think it's giving our Ben and Jerry's addiction a true run for its money!

So, it's natural that I'm extremely excited to be participating in this Ice Cream Week, the brainchild of Kim and Jen! My first recipe goes live tomorrow (and believe me, it's a good one!), but in the meantime, check out all the participants and enter to win these awesome ice cream prizes! Some of us have recipes today, some will have them tomorrow, but all week recipes and fun ice creamy things will be popping up.

I love ice cream, so I'm obviously thrilled about this week. Summer is coming to a close, and this week is the ideal time to celebrate Summer's favorite food before the Fall chill sets in. Tell me your favorite flavor in the comments :)

 Make sure you check out each of these blogs, today and all week long, for their #IceCreamWeek recipes ~ and for chances to enter to win our #IceCreamWeek giveaway!
