Popsicles are one of those simple pleasures that I remember from my childhood with fondness but rarely have in my freezer these days.

You 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
