pop! goes my summer: watermelon chili lime pops

pop! goes my summer: watermelon chili lime pops

August 26th, 2015

Another pop idea courtesy of Conor…… These pops are as simple as simple can be – lots of fresh watermelon and lime juice, a bit of sweetener and a dash (or more) of chili powder. And they’re as refreshing as refreshing can be, perfect for these end-of-August summer days and nights. Need more popsicle “inspiration”? […]

pop! goes my summer: cookie monster popsicles

August 13th, 2015

So I thought I’d switch things up a bit. You know, you don’t actually need a popsicle mold to make popsicles. You can use pretty much any kind of vessel or container you’ve got on-hand – paper cups, ice cube trays, even shot glasses, to name a few! I’d been wanting to make popsicles using a […]

cookie jar: margarita cookies

cookie jar: margarita cookies

August 7th, 2015

I had this idea to make a “summer cookie” this month. Not a “no-bake” (though that is perfect for these doggity days when you don’t want to turn on the oven), but a cookie that looks, feels and tastes like summertime. So I made these: Because, margaritas. These little darlings have it all going on […]

pop! goes my summer: biscoff popsicles

July 29th, 2015

Warning: yogurt ahead. I say this because, well, yogurt? It’s my food kryptonite. Yes, I’ve used it in cakes, salad dressings, cookies and even pizza dough. But just straight up eating it? Like, with a spoon? Step back. Waaaay back (anyone here feel the same? Please tell me I’m not the only one). But as […]

pop! goes my summer: buttered popcorn popsicles

July 22nd, 2015

And they’re just as good as they sound. I was both inspired by, and skeptical of the concept of a salted, buttered popcorn popsicle. But Erica Rax’s photos – and even just the prospect of these being a success – were enough to make me succumb. And I’m so, so glad I did. The base for these pops […]

pop! goes my summer: s'mores popsicles

July 8th, 2015

Yes, you read correctly: S’MORES POPSICLES. If you were with me last summer, you may recall the “Great S’mores Popsicle Fail” of 2014. But I was determined to get it right. And oh, I got it right. And maybe even better. Layers of vanilla ice cream, graham cracker crust (!!) and charred marshmallows (thank you, […]

d.i.y.: homemade magic shell

July 7th, 2015

If I had known how easy it is to make your own magic shell – well, I would have done it a loooong time ago. While not a huge fan of chocolate, I love it frozen – and I especially love it frozen over ice cream, a la the shell. Many (many!) recipes abound for […]

We’re baa-aack! I’ve been dreaming (literally) of popsicles all this long winter long – and I’m super excited that summer is officially here, along with a whole summer’s worth of pops to share! More booze! More stripes! And I’m kicking things off with these pretty Paloma pops! I had my first Paloma here a few years ago, […]

milk bar chocolate malt cake!

June 26th, 2015

Yeah – so I guess THIS was not my longest post, ever. This one is. And it’s TOTALLY worth it. Since I started making the Birthday Layer Cake from the incredible Milk Bar cookbook, I’ve been dying to try another one. I love the use of the cake ring, the different layers and textures of crumb […]
