Fourth of July Ice Cream Cake

"I got this recipe out of a Taste of Home Cook book, and made it for 4th of July last year and it was a big hit. Because of the ice cream, it is perfect for the hot weather that the summer brings to us in AZ. Hope you enjoy it."

I am 29, married and recently gave birth to our first child. Because of this, I am not finding the time I used to have to cook. Fast, easy prep recipes are what I am looking for. I am one of seven children. I have lived my entire life here in AZ, despite my dislike of heat and crowdedness. I would love to move somewhere else, however my roots and family are firmly planted here. I have always loved to cook, but usually just have to worry about my own likes and dislikes. Luckily I have a man that is very happy to have spaghetti the rest of his life, however I enjoy trying new things. I do not always base my reviews on my husbands comments...because there are many times I feel he doesn't appreciate good food as much as I. My sisters for my wedding put together this "sister cookbook" for me. It was great, but I was introduced to recipezaar through it and have fallen in love with it. I am excited about adding to the cookbook with my own recipes for the next sister to get married. (There are 5 of us all together.)
