A peek Into My Kitchen: Blackberry Ice Pops: Even for Breakfast ;)
These pops are so wholesome that you could even serve them for breakfast!
My quest for a variety of homemade popsicles to replace those laden with dyes, preservatives and other horrible (though sometimes tasty) unmentionables.
The only drawback to these pops is that the beautiful, deep purple color may make you want to drape your apartment and your kids in plastic wrap to prevent the inevitable staining when you serve them.
2/3 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups blackberry puree
1 cup plain yogurt
1-2 Tbsp Honey or Agave nectar (You may need more if your use the optional lemon juice)
optional: 4 teaspoons lemon juice
Glue Dots Summer Bonding Project–Collage, Collage & More Collage!
I think I have a genetic predisposition to harbor school supplies of all sorts. Look in my closet, my mom' s or my grandmothers and you will find a wide array of clips, pens, paper…the list goes on. Glue dots were a new one for me, though…and they will definitely be earning a place in my supply drawer!
Since I bought my 4 year old his first glue stick a couple of years ago (actually, a twin pack, natch) he has been hooked on the idea of gluing stuff together. He is such a prolific collage-maker, that everywhere you turn in my apartment you may very well bump into one of his 'projects.'
