21 holly July 1, 2008 at 1:45 pm

30 Michelle July 1, 2008 at 3:43 pm

36 Dylan July 1, 2008 at 4:58 pm

The Youngest and The Eldest would LOVE it if I won this!

37 Sarah July 1, 2008 at 5:01 pm

And these look like they’d do just as well in our Aussie winter as they would in summer!

46 Kathleen July 2, 2008 at 8:31 am

I miss the Popsicles my mom used to make for my brother and I every summer. This book would help me start my own traditions and give me some better recipes than frozen Kool Aid

47 Carla July 2, 2008 at 9:02 am

Sounds like the perfect book for summertime with toddlers!

48 L.Cruz July 2, 2008 at 9:20 am

Oh Man another cookbook to add to my collection! I love this and have a set of molds eagerly awaiting this cookbook!

49 Jenny L. July 2, 2008 at 9:36 am

I’m convinced! Especially for pops less syrup-y/sugary than store-bought ones.

50 Zoe July 2, 2008 at 9:40 am

I’d love to see what’s in this cookbook…even though it’s cold and rainy outside right now, I’m sure I’d use this over and over again every summer.

51 Danielle July 2, 2008 at 9:42 am

I like the idea of controlling what goes into my food – trying to be more mindful of that. I’m also starting to play with using agave syrup more – maybe there’s a way to incorporate that into some of these pops. 🙂

52 Lauren July 2, 2008 at 9:47 am

55 Kim July 2, 2008 at 11:17 am
