September 16th, 2014

Summer weekends are a mad dash to get out the door and start the day – so breakfasts are typically quick and easy. But the minute the air turns crisp I inevitably seek out weekend breakfasts that are a bit more indulgent. Food that begs for lingering over the papers, and great smells coming from […]

pop! goes my summer: hot cocoa popsicles

hot cocoa popsicles

September 10th, 2014

Well, it’s here. My last “pop” post for the season. Welp. So I thought it would be fun to re-visit my very first popsicle – which also happened to be my very first post! Welp. For this version of hot cocoa popsicles I used cocoa powder instead of chopped chocolate, and added layers of mini chocolate […]

pop! goes my summer: oreo milkshake pops

oreo milkshake pops

September 3rd, 2014

Well there’s clearly NO stopping me. First day of school was this week, and it was the first day of over 90 degree weather we’ve had ALL summer! Of course this was the day I rode the school bus (unairconditioned) with Noah, on his first day of kindergarten. And sat in a basement assembly room […]

cookie jar: 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

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 […]

pop! goes my summer: citrus mojito pops

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 […]

pop! goes my summer: iced coffee popsicles

iced coffee popsicles

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 […]
