Have you ever wondered how ice cream is made? It's actually a lot easier than you think. I started to think about this question when one day my family and I went to an ice cream place where their ice cream was homemade. It was called Grandma Pucci's and their ice cream is just so delicious. Each bite I took, the flavor just tasted better and better. It melted in my mouth no way any other ice cream had before.
