  21. I know to some this is not considered fun, but my family and I came together to paint the Big House, our family house, my grandparents (RIP), house. It needed some tender loving care.

  29. This week has been crazy! Firstly I made a four tier red velvet and white chocolate chequerboard sponge with fresh garden raspberries, for my sister’s 16th birthday murder mystery party (it was nerve-racking as she cut in, hoping the pattern would come through!). Then all my friends came round for a barbecue brunch the next day – my friend manned the barbie and proceeded to drop half the food on the floor (it’s alright, no one got food poisoning!). I saw Monster’s University with a friend (we may have been the oldest in the cinema…), and yesterday went for a 2 1/2 hr cycle ride with my mum, at the hottest time of the day. Although it was sweltering and we got attacked by nettles, the views were spectacular, and we enjoyed a much deserved barbecue when we got back home…

  30. we just got back from treking in MS- saw the petrified forest and alligators in their natural environment. A home made ice cream would have been lovely at the end of those 90+ degree days!

  31. I’ve just found a job in Spain, what is a prize these days in our country….that’s a perfect reason to prepare and invite everybody to have an icecream!!

  32. What a great giveaway! Homemade ice cream would be perfect over this hot hot summer. So far this summer, I celebrated 1 year since a major surgery and with the help of my sweet husband, made by first 5 tier cake for our niece’s Sweet 16.

  33. It’s been really hot where I live, like over 107 every day. There aren’t any pools open to the community and even though the beach isn’t very far away most of the parents work and aren’t able to take their kids. I am currently not working so I decided to make my large yard into a waterpark and invite all the neighborhood kids and their babysitters over to cool off. We had slides and pools for all ages. We also had water balloon and water gun fights. Each family brought their lunch and I provided lemonade and water as well as yummy watermelon. For dessert I made fresh strawberry ice cream in an old fashioned maker, rock salt and all. We have been doing this once a week and it’s a HUGE hit.

  34. My roommate and I threw a housewarming/Fourth of July party in our new flat, featuring my first attempt at my dad’s famous potato salad, red-white-and-blue cupcakes, and friends from all different parts of our lives.

  35. Its actually winter here is South Africa :) but that hasn’t stopped me from having fun (or making ice cream :)) I have been having a blast making things out of polymer clay!

  36. OMG my mother has this machine and I try to steal it whenever I can, it’s great!! This Summer I’m proud to say I played in my first roller derby game :) Go Foothill Foxy Flyers!!

  37. I learn how to bake “zebra cake” n successful ! YaY!

  38. Best thing this summer? Well, still not sure it was the best thing, but sold our bakery this summer. Wow… was that a fast transaction! Anyway, I’m surprised how much free time I have now…. to bake the things “I” want to bake!

  39. I loved all the cakes i was able to make this summer. and spending some much needed time with the kids.

  40. perfect idea since it’s so hot here!! thank you for this lovely thought :)

  41. I was in Dubai and it was soooooooooooo hot that we went to Ski Dubai to cool off and got to hug a real life penguin too!
    Doesn’t get much cooler than that ;)

  42. This summer I graduated from grad school and celebrated my sister’s graduation from med school. It’s been a great summer so far!

  43. I ran my first 5K. Well, I actually walked it because I broke my foot two days before, but I’m doing the same run again in September, and I’m hoping to get to run it this time!

  44. This summer I relaxed at home and spent my time making different baked goods.

  45. I took a cruise to Alaska to celebrate my Mom’s 81st BDay. It was an “Are You Related to Me?” cruise so I reconnected with distant cousin’s. FUN! (and chilly…like ice cream – hint!).

  46. I went for a 2 1/2 hr cycle ride with my mum yesterday, at the hottest time of the day! Although it was sweltering and we got attacked by nettles the views were stunning and we enjoyed a well-deserved BBQ with the family once we got home.
    On top of that, I made a red velvet and white chocolate four tier checkerboard sponge for my sister’s 16th murder mystery birthday party, delicious with fresh garden raspberries!

  47. I’ve had a blast hanging out with my kids. My baby is starting kindergarten this fall. Oh my! Where does the time go? We made chocolate chip cookies and cake poppers! We invited some of their classmates over and went hiking. Then I served them warm cookies and root beer floats. After that, they all had a huge water balloon fight in the yard. We ended the evening making s’mores. My kids and their friends had so much fun, we did it a few times over the summer. I also LOVE doing craft projects with my kids. I’m just enjoying anything I can with my kids because I know when they are in school full time, I’m going to miss these moments. We are going to Lake County Fair this week. Can’t wait!

  48. Had a sweet baby boy!!!

  49. Oh I would love a Ice Cream Maker! My daughter would too! She has been asking me to make her some homemade ice cream and I know that I can make it without the machine. I just feel like the machine does a better job at making it. I told her that we would have to see about purchasing one, but winning one would be the BEST!!!! The best thing we have done this summer is going to the beach and going to her dance competitions. We are in the process of planning a trip to Disney too! We are so excited!

  50. I’ve been on a crazy cake/muffin baking race. Not sure why I’m baking so much but it feels good being able to share it with my family and neighbour.

  51. So far this summer I ran my first obstacle run, and I am running a half marathon next month. I can’t wait! Great giveaway, thanks!

  52. My summer really hasn’t started yet because I have been ill and in the hospital for the past 6 weeks. I am learning to walk again and build my strength in rehab and can’t wait to go home. I love ice cream and need to make my diet healthier so believe I will have lots of fun with this new book of Jeni’s!

  53. I got engaged this summer in front of my whole family! :-D <3

    Thank you for having this giveaway!

  54. Our family took a huge family vacation – grandparents, kids, spouses, everyone – to Gulfport, MS a few weeks ago. It was amazing! Who knew MS was so beautiful?! Not me. Now we plan to go back again next year…maybe with an ice cream maker. ;)

  55. I get to volunteer at a hospice this summer, and one of the best things I find great about it, is that I get to make cookie baskets that get sent to various nursing homes. I bake the cookies and make cute little tags for them. Sometimes I think I’m so lucky that I found a job that fits me so well!

  56. A friend of mine from the UK came to visit me in California and I had a blast showing her around!

  57. I started a vegetable garden and am “enjoying” trying to steal my produce away from the pests. Grrrrr!

  177. I’ve done a few things I am particularly proud of, but one f my favorites had to be running my first 5k with my friend. The money went to a great cause and it was a lot of fun!

  178. Just last week I went on a family trip to San Francisco to see more family! We actually drove down and it was super nostalgic since we used to drive down every summer when we were younger to go see my grandma.

  179. Hiked for the first time! (But won’t be my last!)

  180. That ice cream maker would be amazing but the recipe book looks even more amazing! This summer I got to go on a real family vacation/honeymoon we never had after 16 years of marriage, to Kauai. Was so beautiful and glorious!

  190. I’ve been daydreaming about splurging on an ice cream maker all summer and making crazy favors like violet or basil ice cream from my exploding herb garden. I love love this give away!
    The funnest part about this summer for me was building and planting raised garden beds in the backyard with my hubby. I’m now impatiently waiting for tomatoes and zuchinis to ripen!

  191. My two daughters and I learned how to go Geo-caching! It’s super fun, great exercise and you find a treasure and leave a treasure!

  192. Oh man! Our summer has been PACKED! I would say the funnest thing we have done together as family was watching our towns fireworks show in the back of our truck. It was so much fun and I know our girls will always remember that night. :)
