Homemade ice cream is often thought of as a luxury dessert, something you make for a special occasion or right at the beginning of summer. The end product is amazing, but it’s such a process. If you own an ice cream maker (no judgement if you don’t – they’re only useful for making ice cream and the occasional frose, and who needs an extra piece of equipment lying around?), you have to start freezing the parts and prepping the ice cream base long before you can ever tuck into the end product. Enter no-churn ice cream. It’s totally doable as a weekend project or any time you have a few hours for ice cream to set up in the freezer.
The trick to smooth no-churn ice cream is folding whipped heavy cream into sweetened condensed milk (sorry friends, this is ice cream not salad). Then freeze the ice cream for a few hours and add any mix-ins when it’s at the consistency of soft serve, so they don’t all end up at the bottom of the ice cream. Freeze for another few hours until solid and scoopable and amazingly delicious.
Homemade is so much better than the store-bought stuff, and with recipes this easy, from-scratch ice cream will become part of your summer repertoire.

If you’re looking to take advantage of the longer, sun-filled days of summer, try taking your weeknight dinners outdoors to the grill. Add foil packs to your cooking arsenal and you’ve got easy, mess-free grilling for everything from BBQ meatloaf to paella – all in under an hour.
Healthy Grilled Shrimp Fajita Foil Pack
If anything, shrimp was made for grilling in a foil pack. The packet cooks and flavors the shrimp while keeping it all safe – no shrimp slipping between the grates here. And warming the tortillas is as easy as wrapping them into another foil pack for a short turn on the grill.

Between the backyard barbecues, beachy picnics and fireworks viewing parties, summer is packed with patriotic events. When planning your next party don’t limit the theme to the decor – food can be patriotic, too! And while a surprise-inside flag cake looks amazing, not everyone has the time to make one. We rounded up our favorite red, white and blue dishes that will look great, but won’t take all day to make.
American Flag Caprese Salad (pictured above)
The addition of purple potatoes to the classic mozzarella and tomato salad makes for a patriotic side dish, perfect for any summer party. It looks adorable in the flag design, but will look equally tasty mixed together in a bowl if you don’t have the patience to set it up. Read more
