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

20 Easy and Delicious Fish Recipes You Have to Try!

Fish is one of our favorite family staples. It is economical (especially when it goes on sale during the Lenten season. It is a great time to stock up on fish whether you celebrate Lent or not,) and one of the best quick and low effort meals around.

So it surprises me when people tell me they hate to eat fish because it is messy to make, dry, and tough. Well I suppose fish can be all of those things if they only way you prepare fish is to deep fry it or over cook it.  Growing up on Lake Erie, I thought the only way you cooked fish was as a deep fried breaded fillet because that’s how we ate it.

Fortunately for my cholesterol levels, I learned that some of the best fish dinner recipes are also baked, broiled, sautéed, and grilled. And that’s when Husband and I started incorporating more fish and seafood into our diet.   
We also learned the secret to making fish is to realize that it very easy to overcook. For most seafood and fish recipes, you just need to lightly sauté seafood at a low to medium heat to heat it through. Cooking fish any longer or at a higher temperature or both is s how you end up with dry or rubbery fish fillets on your plate.
Guess how I know?
