Kids Week: Frozen Pudding Pops! Nothing says kids and summer time like something frozen on a stick!

Kids Week: Frozen Pudding Pops!

Making home made popsicles totally makes me feel like a child again. I realize that if your kids are like mine and eat 27 popsicles a day that the most economical thing to do is head to Costco and buy a box of otter pops, but take a break every once and a while and have some fun creating your own flavor combos in homemade popsicles. There’s something magical about it! Kids love helping out and these recipes are so quick and easy that you won’t mind extra “helpers.” You can pick up all kinds of shapes and sizes of molds just about anywhere these days. I started thinking about pudding pops about a month ago and I couldn’t stop dreaming about different flavor combos that sounded good. Are you ready for this?? Mint-Chocolate Cookie Pudding Pops 1 small box instant chocolate pudding 1 3/4 C half and half 10 Oreo cookies, crushed (about 1 heaping cup) 1/4 t peppermint extract.

Berries ‘n Cream Chia Pudding

Be sure to check out the original post to see if you’re one of the lucky three! We’ve been back in Canada for 3 days, at home, with the dogs. Life is sweet! Although our diving trip to Dominican was fun, I really did miss home. Specifically, my kitchen. The first thing I did when we got home on Sunday was set the oven to 400F and begin peeling a butternut squash I’d kept in the pantry for this very occasion. I’ve begun each day since we’ve been home with a big bowl of this chia pudding and am just as in love with it this morning as I was on Monday. Either way, I’m diggin’ it, and I hope you will, too!

This low carb recipe idea was born when I was eating a bowl of the Cheesy Cauliflower Puree from last week and I had some leftovers. Well my first attempt was a disaster! I mulled it over the rest of the day, and the next day I had a brainstorm.I cooked a new batch of cauliflower but for half as long as I do for the puree. It worked! Now a brief disclaimer.

Review and Giveaway: Edible Cocktails. **Giveaway Closed 5/15/12** During the summer I buy most of my produce at Chicago’s Green City Market—a fantastic farmer’s market that connects local producers and farmers to chefs, restaurateurs, food organizations, and the public.

Review and Giveaway: Edible Cocktails

I love cooking with locally sourced ingredients and find that using seasonal, high-quality blueberries and tomatoes can turn a dish from dull to irresistible. If seasonal ingredients tremendously improve the quality of food why can’t they do the same for alcohol? In Edible Cocktails:From Garden to Glass—Seasonal Cocktails with a Fresh Twist, Natalie Bovis proves they can. Natalie gives you tips, tricks, and recipes for making extraordinary cocktails with delicious, fresh foods. Immediately upon reading the book, I dogeared every other page; recipes on my short-list include: a Ginger Berry Flip, Fig and Whiskey Preserves, Smoked Bacon-Washed Bourbon, and a Cilantro-Cucumber Vodka Collins.

Shamrock Protein Milkshake!

Patty’s Day. A small size “Shamrock Shake” has 400 calories and 60 grams of sugar! If you’ve ever been tempted to grab one of these festive green shakes, look no further! This version is so thick and creamy that you can eat it with a spoon! The best part is, it’s packed with protein and is extremely low in sugar and calories. In all of my shakes I use DESIGNER WHEY 100% Premium Whey Protein Powder! Baked Raspberry Pancake.
