Strawberry & Blueberry Lemonade Popsicles

Saturday, July 17, 2010


Making homemade lemonade with fruit purée was such a hit with my family that the natural progression was to turn the strawberry and blueberry lemonade into popsicles. Making popsicles is easier than you think and allows you to control the amount of sugar in them.

This rendition of homemade lemonade is tart but you can add more sugar to taste. The splash of blueberry purée is a perfect balance to the tartness of the lemon.

When compared to many other muffins, these ones are actually pretty low in butter and sugar. I like making them in miniature because they are bite-sized and easy for my 1 1/2-year old son to eat.

This recipe comes from my good friend, Milena, in Germany. Similar to crêpes, German pancakes are large and thin and can be used for both sweet and savory dishes. When I made these recently for breakfast, I made the sweeter version and added grated apples and blueberries to some of the pancakes.

Natural Easter Egg Dyes

Thursday, March 18, 2010


Appreciate the vivid colors and natural beauty of fruits, vegetables and spices: dye your Easter eggs with everyday foods rather than boxes of chemical colorings. This is a great family project and learning experience. Though it will take a little more planning than your basic Easter egg dye kit, I think you will find the extra time well worth it. Even though I'm a "grown-up," I felt a child-like excitement watching the eggs turn colors in bowls of cabbage, spinach, blueberries and more!
