Blueberry Lemonade Popsicles


Mom made us tons of popsicles growing up.   She poured juice into paper cups, stuck them in the freezer and then stuck sticks in them and let them freeze completely.  We thought she was a magician!  Now there are all kinds of popsicle molds, and I've owned several of them.    Puttering around amazon.com I ran across these molds by Tavolo, and I didn't hesitate, into my cart they went.

I love that each pop can be removed from the tray and unmolded.  I love the base acts as a spill catcher.   I love the the size, they are going to be great for layered pops.     I got the molds last week and was searching for the perfect recipe to give it a try.  

We went blueberry picking over the weekend and these sounded fantastic so Jake and I threw them together.    We only did the blueberry ones, but this would be great with any summer berry, watermelon, even cherry limeade.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lemons
  • 1 1/2 cup water -- divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup strawberries or raspberries (only did blueberry this time)
  • 1 cup blueberries

Instructions:

  1. Make the simple sugar syrup by mixing 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Heat the mixture, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves and the liquid becomes clear. Let it cool and refrigerate it in a sealed container.
  2. Make the strawberry-raspberry purée by blending the berries until a thick liquid is formed. Add as little water as necessary to allow the fruit to blend. Repeat the process with the blueberries. Store the purées in sealed containers in the refrigerator.
  3. Mix the juice of 1 lemon, 1/4 cup water, 2 Tbsp of simple sugar syrup and 1-2 spoonfuls of strawberry-raspberry purée in a martini shaker or a pitcher. (In place of the simple syrup, you can substitute 1 Tbsp sugar.) Add more simple sugar syrup or strawberry-raspberry purée to taste. Repeat the process with the blueberries to make the blueberry lemonade.
  4. Pour the juice into the popsicle molds. Add a few sliced strawberries or raspberries into the molds with the strawberry lemonade and a few frozen blueberries into the molds with the blueberry lemonade. Place the lids on the popsicle molds and place them in the freezer.
  5. Freeze them for several hours or until the juice is frozen. Remove them from the freezer and gently pull the popsicles out. If you have difficulty removing the popsicles from the molds, run some warm water on the tips of the molds while gently twisting the molds to work the popsicles out of the molds.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P
