I hope everyone had a happy (and safe) 4th of July. I had all kinds of great blogging plans for some spectacular Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes and a few other party recipes but then I got derailed. Completely foiled. That just happens sometimes at the folks. I make something and it disappears before I can even get a photo…let alone formally serve it. I guess that’s a compliment, lol!! Those posts will be coming soon because I plan on posting lots of quick fun summer food, so stay tuned. They’ll still be perfect for all the summer parties yet to come, but in the meantime, enjoy these Blackberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles.
It’s been such an obscenely hot summer I’ve been looking for lots of ways to cool off. I posted Strawberry Sorbet and my Lemon (or Lemon Thyme) Buttermilk Popsicles, and I’m at it again – Cracked Black Pepper Honeydew Sorbet. Yeah, this is another of weird flavor combination but it really works – the flecks of pepper dance off your tongue and give interest to the sweet, fruity honeydew flavor.
Temperatures are soaring here in Minnesota. Some summers are so cool I barely wear shorts, but today I actually had to put on the air – and when that happens, you better believe, you betcha, that I’m looking for cool things to eat and ways to keep the oven off!
