Nothing sounds better than some great ice cream on a hot Valley summer day! I recently learned about a very special ice cream food truck based out of Fresno called Jay’s Specialty Ice Cream!

The Rocky Road to Ruin: An Ice Cream Shop Mystery By Meri Allen: Review/Giveaway/Interview

by Cynthia Chow

After the death of her best friend’s mother, Riley Rhodes returned to her hometown of Penniman, Connecticut, to help Caroline recover and assist in running the late Elizabeth “Buzzy” Spooner’s Udderly Delightful Ice Cream Shop. Scooping out delicious layered confections in waffle cones is a delight on its own, but it also gives Riley an escape from a career mistake.

The Scoop on Santa Cruz Ice Cream

by Christina Morgan Cree

When I first moved to Santa Cruz, Marianne's on Ocean was the place to go for locals and the obligatory stop on the way home from a long day in the sand and sun for tourists.

Kitchen Collectibles: Ice Cream Freezers

by Diana Bulls

One of my fondest childhood memories of summer is homemade ice cream. For no particular reason, other than it was hot, Mom would mix up a batch of ice cream and Daddy would get the old White Mountain, hand-cranked freezer out of the tank house. The filled freezer container would go in the wooden bucket, and Daddy would layer in the ice and salt, and finally the cranking mechanism.

Harlem Shake- The Red Velvet Milkshake

by Alicia Lieu

A viral video known as the Harlem Shake and a new diner opening up in Harlem by the very same name is a coincidence? Not according to the owner, Jelena Pasic, as quoted in the New York Times. She had the name picked out for her new burger joint before the Harlem Shake video went viral. But the timing could not have been better as she rolled out publicity for this super hip, retro diner on the corner of 124th and Lenox. Harlem Shake first caught my eye in a Tasting Table newsletter, but then snagged my attention in a subsequent Pure Wow newsletter. They had me at Red Velvet Shake.
