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

15 Saint Patrick’s Day Recipes (for Grownups)

Saint Patrick’s Day is on its way!

Our plans are fairly low key. We want to take Lacey to the big Saint Patrick’s Day parade the city holds the weekend before the holiday so everyone can attend. Lacey won’t freak out at the sound of bagpipes and we won’t have to leave early. (Place your bets now.)


15 Saint Patrick's Day Recipes

Since the holiday falls on a Monday, our plans are pretty basic. Wear green to avoid being pinched, work, come home, and eat dinner. Trying to get a table at Irish or British pub for a traditional Saint Patrick’s Day meal will be impossible with Columbus' large Irish population. That’s OK. I have 15 recipes for Saint Patrick’s Day dinner, dessert, and drinks to choose from for dinner at home.


Since life is short, let’s start with Saint Patrick's Day dessert recipes first!

One of my favorite local restaurants uses Guinness in its beer battered fish and chips. The alcohol cooks out of the batter and leaves a choco-coffee-nutty flavor behind. It is life. changing!

I’ve been collecting recipes for Saint Patrick’s Day dinner ever since.
