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

How to Dehydrate Fresh Mushrooms

Mushrooms are a staple in my kitchen. So much so that I usually buy more than one container when I go grocery shopping.

Well wouldn't you know it, the one time I buy three containers of fresh mushrooms, we can't go through all of them before they take a turn toward iffy. And if you know your mushrooms, iffy turns into compost fodder real quick.




I experimented dehydrating my fresh mushrooms and it worked! I stored the mushrooms in an empty jar to use in winter soup or some sort of crockpot dinner creation

I made a video to show you how I dry mushrooms.
