Blueberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe

Homemade Popsicles are all the rage in food circles this year. They blow those plastic tubes of neon colored sugar water Popsicles out of the water! I officially declare 2011 The Summer of the Popsicle. It's a nice follow up to 2010 The Summer of the S'more. My family discovered frozen fruit bars last summer. I felt better about serving a snack that is fruit and juice. It became spendy because a box of frozen fruit bars never lasted more than a few days after I brought it home from the store. Lo and behold, the winter holidays dropped a family gift of a set of  BPA free plastic Popsicle molds similar to these down our chimney. Thanks, Santa me! ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience. ) Last week Mother Nature turned off the cold and turned up the heat to full blast. Ahhhh, a nice homemade frozen fruit bar would be refreshing in this weather.     Save this homemade popsicle recipe to your Pinterest boards for later! Share it with your friend

My Never Fail Way to Get Kids to Eat Vegetables

Since I’m a foodie turned food blogger everyone assumes I grew up with yummy and wonderful homemade meals.

Nope.

Sorry Mom.

My mom didn’t grow up cooking and she’s not a foodie.  To be polite there were meals put before me that I wasn’t particularly fond of – but I ate them anyway because that was our house rule. (Fortunately, that is no longer the case. Mom has some cook stuff up her culinary sleeve now.)

Ironically my sister and I ARE foodies, I’m sure that is the reason why.

Birdseye (the most fun group at Blissdom!) recorded my number one tip to give moms on how to get their kids to eat their vegetables. I embedded it below.




If you click over to YouTube and “Like” my video and I get the most Likes, I could win a trip to New York!

Do you think I’m too hard core? How do you get kids to eat their vegetables?
