Recipe: Yogurt Berry Popsicles

Cooking / Eating In

roku-yogurt-berry-popsicles-3

I recently added Zoku Molds to my kitchen gadget collection – as a result, I’ve made a few popsicle concoctions.  One of my favorite creations thus far has been these berry yogurt popsicles.  The Greek yogurt makes them taste super decadent (even though I use fat-free yogurt!), you can vary the berries based on what’s on sale or in season (I use frozen berries a lot), and you can also control the sugar/honey quantity.  Finally, the mint adds a refreshing highlight – and using it allows me to justify having a fledgling, floundering herb garden on my balcony. My only gripe is that my pop mold only makes 4 pops, though that is no fault of the recipe. What do you think – should I invest in another popsicle mold??

Anyway, if you’re also a homemade popsicle fan, give these a try. They are delicious!

Recipe: Peach Cobbler

Cooking / Eating In

Last Friday, I posted the Fun Fact that August is National Peach month.  I usually just eat peaches straight up – nothing like the nectar of a super-ripe farmer’s market peach dripping down your wrist.  I may have gotten a little overzealous with my peach purchases one market visit, and I was faced with the tasty dilemma of having too many ripe peaches to consume. Undeterred I decided to whip up some cobbler!  Would you like some cobbler of your own? Yeahhhh, I thought so.

Recipe: Blueberry Crumble

Cooking / Eating In

If you follow me on twitter, you’ll know that I got 2 pints of fresh blueberries from my volunteer CSA shift last week when some unlucky soul forgot to pick them up.  I was so excited for these blue beauties – I didn’t sign up for a fruit share this seasons, so it was a sweet surprise.  And sweet they were – these were some of the most delectable blueberries I’ve had in a while.  Tweaking a apple crisp recipe from Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything, I threw together this easy but delicious blueberry crumble.  So delicious!
