Every Fourth of July, Americans celebrate their freedom with fireworks, grilled food of every kind and watermelon. Why watermelon? I have no idea, but there's always an option for homemade ice cream, too.
To celebrate, I'm giving away a $10 Amazon gift card via email for one lucky visitor who will be free to spend it however they wish. Just comment on this post about your favorite summer eats. If you're not a blog follower, sign up today!
Our giveaway winner will also be able to choose a copy of any of my current ebooks which can be checked out at my author website.
No worries if you don't win, keep reading for my homemade ice cream recipe passed down from my husband's grandmother. It's delicious and easy. A great dessert for a wonderful holiday!
