Ice Cream Sandwiches


One of my favorites treats to eat in the summer is ice cream. I usually make my own ice cream, and oh boy, it is beyond delicious! I mean who doesn’t like ice cream right? Well, I am sorry if you don’t…

Today I am making a classic. Ice cream sandwiches. I think this is a classic in the US, Spain and all over the world! These ice cream sandwiches really took me back to my childhood. Eating them by the beach or pool while playing with my friends. I really want to recreate these fun memories for my baby girl! Well, she’s not that much of a baby anymore, she is 1-year old already!

For this recipe, I am using vanilla ice cream, but please use your favorite ice cream. Go crazy! lol. Let’s make them!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
