I grew up in the city and one of my biggest childhood joys was when the
Ice Cream truck would stop by. Nothing like a hot Summer day,
being out with your friends and enjoying life's simple pleasures. I would
get the same thing every time....A orange creamsicle. This drink
is so simple you don't need a recipe. Orange Soda and Vanilla Ice Cream!

Last night was our weekly pasta night and we always like to mix it up a little bit.
Stuffed shells is a great was to be creative. I never make them the same and always
throw a little of this and that in every recipe. Serve with a glass of Chianti and -
garlic bread and all will be right in the world!
