I’m not going to lie. I was really disappointed last year when Polar Seltzer  rolled out an array of limited edition holiday flavors and I couldn’t get them on the West Coast. Everyone back east was toasting with sparkling eggnog flavored water and I felt seriously left out. Fast forward to last week and what […]

The first thing that came to mind as I topped these cupcakes with their frizzy hats of mint was that I’d obviously just baked an edible version of the Truffula Tress from The Lorax.

I secretly thought they would be disgusting but I bought them anyway. Well surprise surprise: these baking bits are about as far from awful on the spectrum of delicious as […]

Mojito Pops

June 30, 2008

As previously promised Popsicle week has at last arrived. Thankfully these pops are awesome because I think I gave myself temporary carpal tunnel syndrome after juicing eight limes by hand with a ridiculously flimsy plastic juicer. Obviously a sturdier tool is going right to the top of my shopping list. By the time I finished […]
