Ice cream is something that you can never grow old eating. It is absolutely OK that you still love your childhood cravings. Whenever you dig into sweet, sugary and refreshing ice cream, it brings back memories of summer. This summer, indulge in this delightful pleasure and find out yourself.
The history of Ice Cream is debatable. Maybe Italy, where Gelato is famous. America, where Ice-Cream is famous and India, where Kulfi is famous. According to legend, ice-cream was introduced in Italy by Marco Polo. Many passages from Bible have their origin in iced drinks that King Solomon enjoyed. In ancient Greece, Alexander used to love frozen drinks that were flavoured with honey and wine. The Romans started preparing ice-cream when ice was stacked and collected in ‘ice houses’.
It was only in 17th century that there was a change in how desserts are eaten and served. That is exactly when sorbets were invented. It is only during this time that frozen desserts came to be known. The ice-cream in its present form is said to be a Chinese invention. This ice-cream was prepared with buffalo or cow milk and camphor was added to it for flavour.

The Mother’s Day that is celebrated in modern times is not something that is something new. These kind of celebrations go back to the ancient times of Romans and Greeks. During that time, the festivals were celebrated in honour of goddesses Cybele and Rhea. But, it is also true that these old celebrations have nothing to do with modern day’s Mother’s Day.
The origin of this day dates back to Civil War when a woman named Ann Reeves Jarvis started a club for mothers in West Virginia. The goal of this club was to lower infant mortality rate by teaching local women to take care of children, fight disease and improve sanitary conditions. By the end of Civil War, the organisation was transformed into a peace-focused movement called “Mother’s Friendship Day”, which involved bringing together Union and Confederate soldiers. Around the same time, women around the country organised their own Mother’s Day. In the 18 70’s, Juliet Calhoun Blakely, a temperance activist from Michigan started a local Mother’s Day celebration.
It was only during early 1900s that Mother’s Day was recognised nationally. Ann Reeves Jarvis daughter, Anna Jarvis wanted a holiday that honours her mother who died in 1905. In 1908, Jarvis had a financial backing for Mother’s Day celebration at a church of West Virginia. In 1912 she quit her job and found Mother’s Day International Association. Several towns and churches adopted Mother’s day as annual holiday and in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson declared it as official holiday. Since, then it has evolved into its present form of celebrations. In this blog post, we have collected a list of recipes for mother’s day:-
