The addition of the chia seeds is a nutritional bonus because the seeds add nutrients, fiber and protein to the berry jam. But the chia seeds are a key component of the jam in another way because they act as the thickening agent, eliminating the need for extra sugar.

These raspberry lemonade tartlets are perfect for Mother's Day or any other spring brunch. The beautiful pink color is reminiscent of flowers and the shade of pink can be adjusted by changing the ratio of raspberry juice and lemon juice.

Mixed Berry Crumbles

Monday, August 13, 2012


Berry crumbles/crisps are one of my favorite desserts, especially in the heat of the summer, because the fruit takes center stage while a sweet and delicate oatmeal streusel tops it off. It offers the flavors of berry pie that I love but in a lighter and healthier form.

Almond Poppy Seed Cupcakes

Itsy Bitsy Foodies turned two and we celebrated with these almond poppy seed cupcakes, inspired by the Swedish princess torte.

An icy popsicle coats a creamy ice cream center to create a refreshing and nostalgic frozen treat.

It turns out that this is a divine combo.

4th of July Popsicles

Homemade French vanilla ice cream, a raspberry-strawberry puree and whole blueberries unite to make a patriotic Popsicle, perfect for your 4th of July celebrations. The Rocket pops of my childhood were the inspiration behind these red, white and blue treats but my take on them is a little bit more wholesome with the addition of homemade ice cream and blueberries, raspberries and strawberries instead of sugary colored juices .

Strawberry-Raspberry Popsicles

Tuesday, June 21, 2011


Popsicles are super easy to make as long as you have some time to let them freeze. At the most basic level all you need is some fruit juice. For extra vitamins and some oomph in flavor, I like to blend in fruit, leaving some of the berries whole and some of the other types of fruit in chunks. You can use whatever combo of juices and fresh or frozen fruit that you'd like.
