Peach Mango Basil Popsicles

Popsicles are one of those simple pleasures that I remember from my childhood with fondness but rarely have in my freezer these days. They are exceedingly easy to make in a dizzying variety of flavors. Plus, instead of being glorified frozen sugar you can use REAL fruit or REAL coffee or REAL ingredients in general. Much more refreshing on a hot summer day.Peach Mango Basil PopsiclesMy favorite popsicles, by the way, were those ones that are in little plastic sleeves. In particular, Otter Pop brand, blue raspberry flavor, please! I love these homemade popsicles but I’m still not going to turn down an Otter Pop. (PS-I also find otters adorable!)

Caramel Latte Cake

It’s the perfect spring weather right now. Warm enough during the day to be outside without a sweatshirt¬†but cool enough in the morning and evening to comfortably cuddle up with a nice cup of coffee or a latte. Of course, this weather has been a long time coming and still is about 20 degrees below where we normally are right now.Latte cake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

I love a good truffle. All kinds. And since it’s the holidays, I feel justified in making them because I can give them away and not eat 3 dozen by myself.

Movember Murfee

Happy Thanksgiving! Just a quick smile for you today!

MurfYou might know this is my beagle, Murfee. She is a fierce squirrel hunter, rabbit slayer and tiny bird smuggler. (She once stashed a sparrow in her mouth and then when I let her in the house she released the dazed and terrified bird in the living room so we could then catch it and re-release it into the wild. Fun times!) Read the rest of this entry
