cookie jar: chocolate sea salt shortbread

chocolate sea salt shortbread

August 28th, 2014

Though the “sweet-salty” trend has definitely had its moment, I find that there are still times when “just a pinch” can bring many sweet treats to a whole new level. This is especially true of candies and baked goods that are unrelentingly rich, or “one note”. Caramels. Marshmallow-cereal bars. The best blondies you’ll ever eat. […]

pop! goes my summer: vegan cookie dough pops

vegan chocolate chip cookie dough pops

August 27th, 2014

It occurred to me how “naturally” vegan most ice pops are – like these. And these. And these. But sometimes a creamy treat is in order – like these. So I wanted to add at least one more dairy-free pop for my girl. My girl, who also happens to LOVE any and all things cookie […]

Happy Wednesday! I’m sharing this week’s popsicle post over at Buttoned Up – and it’s a good one guys! The last time I made a batch of these mini cheesecakes I realized that I actually preferred them frozen (and since I always make too many I always wind up freezing them). So I thought it […]

August 13th, 2014

When drawing up my list of flavors that I wanted to incorporate into pops for this series, I didn’t give much thought to the actual execution. I just figured I’d find at least a  few recipes out there –  that had worked out all the kinks for me – print out the best one, and make amazing […]

citrus mojito pops

August 6th, 2014

I suppose no popsicle series would be complete without a boozy pop, am I right? I’m not much of a cocktail drinker (a good Bee’s Knees notwithstanding), but I DO enjoy a mojito – especially in the summer. And it seemed the perfect drink to turn into a pop! In looking at various recipes I […]

July 30th, 2014

Anyone who knows me KNOWS that the only non-negotiable part of my life my morning is my daily iced coffee.  A little 1%, a lot of ice, and I’m ready to face the day. Truth is, I love most anything coffee-flavored - malteds, cookies (and more cookies) – even those old lady candies. So of course I […]

July 24th, 2014

It’s here. Yes, this summer – which started out dry, mild, comfortable – is now in the hot and humid dregs. And while I’m definitely avoiding the oven these days, I still enjoy having a stash of cookies at the ready.  And for me that means the always-reliable, no-bake variety – like these: I love […]

July 23rd, 2014

It’s getting fun now. When I came up with the idea for this series I made a list of all of my favorite flavor combinations, drinks and snacks – hoping to make each one in “pop” form. And who doesn’t love a root beer float? This one is barely even a recipe – you know […]

July 9th, 2014

Corn? Pretty much one of my very favorite foods. Yeah, I know that as veggies go, corn does not rank high on the nutritional scale (simple sugars, blah blah). But I can eat an insane amount of corn – and I love it in almost every way you can think to prepare it: Corn salad. […]
