I’m having a little love affair with frozen treats this season. I’ve been making popsicles of all varieties for my kids, and it seems that I have amassed quite the collection of wooden sticks, paper cups and funky holders. Part of the charm of the traditional ice-lolly is not only how it tastes, but also how it looks.
The following frozen treats popped up in my inbox early last month and I knew immediately that they would be perfect for mid-June. Now that school is winding down, we seem to have a lot of kids continuously coming in and out our door these days, and keeping a steady supply of these on hand is an easy way to feed them all.
Are you a fan of frozen treats? What are you currently whipping up?

Writing about ‘good food for busy families,’ Liz chronicles the culinary adventures that are the result of feeding her two daughters, Emma and Katie. Packed with pretty pictures and unique recipes (I loved her Spelt Parmesan Gougeres and Mini Pizza Buns), her blog is a wonderful source of inspiration for moms who are looking for something a little different to feed their family.
I recently caught up with Liz and asked her a few questions so we could all get to know her a little better. Here’s what she had to say:
1. Tell us, what does your typical breakfast look like?
A latte, and either a scone or some vanilla yogurt.
2. Name 10 things you currently have stocked in your fridge.
3. Which ingredient are you currently loving or using in a new way?
Coconut oil. Although I’m still trying to decipher whether it’s the miracle product that some people are saying or if it just makes everything taste better.
4. If you’re listening to music while you’re cooking, what would be your ideal soundtrack?
A little Pink Martini, Rodrigo Y Gabriela or something French cafe-ish.
5. Chocolate or cheese?
Both. And sometimes, even together (cheesecake brownies)!
