Raspberry Buttermilk Popsicles

Raspberry-Buteermilk-Popsicles

 Popsicles and summer just go hand and hand. There’s just something completely soul satisfying about a chilled sweet treat frozen onto a wooden stick. 

Doesn’t really matter how old you happen to be or how you choose to eat one.

Tiny nibbles from the top left corner all the way down to the bottom.

Little licks that make a thick rectangle popsicle melt into the sharpest, skinny peak. 

Big bites that make your teeth numb and your brain freeze until you rub your temples for mercy. 

I have been chomping at the bit to make some of the cold confections as of late and came across the most divine recipe in Country Living magazine.

Raspberry Buttermilk Popsicles.

Doesn’t that sound glorious?!? Well is it! I made a few changes. I used light buttermilk and sour cream (it is bathing suit season after all) and I added a bit more honey. And oh honey let me tell you how tasty these pretty little pops are! 

The fresh raspberries just send the entire sensory experience to a whole new level.

Cold and creamy, slightly tangy, and a hint of sweet that softly lingers on your tongue.

These little pink pretties will make any swelteringly hot summer day a decadent delight.

I can’t wait to delve into more intoxicating flavor combinations! I’m thinking Greek yogurt and blueberry would be blissful…or what about watermelon and lemon?! 

Oooooh! Or how about lemon cream!?

I think this may be the summer of popsicles at my house.  

 Wishing you an armload of sweet summertime fun!

 Hot ham & swiss sammies have been a 4th of July tradition since I was a little nipper.

Fabulous Find Friday ::: Antique Enamel Bowl

IMG_1175

Have you ever fallen in love (whilst antiquing) with something that you don’t necessarily need but just HAVE to have? 

It’s the story of my life. 

But most of the time that something that I don’t necessarily need quickly becomes something that I can’t live without once I get home. 

This antique enamel bowl is one of those things…

When I first laid my eyes upon that smooth, perfectly white, flawless surface I just knew that I HAD to have it.

But once I ran my finger along the perfectly painted forest green edge, well then, I knew that there was no turning back. 

And guess what? 

I’m so very delighted that I acted on my impulse! This dear antique enamel white bowl has served me well.

It makes a positively precious container for all of my herbs that I keep beside my kitchen window.

When entertaining, it makes the most delightful (leak free) beverage tub.

After a long day of antiquing, it makes the perfect foot bath in switch to soak my aching feet.

And then when I may or may not purchase a plethora of pretty flowers?

It adoringly displays those as well.  

If you don’t already own an antique white enamel bowl, (or twelve) *ahem* well then, I strongly suggest that you do. 

You won’t be sorry.

Happy Friday All!

Love,

Wenderly
