Greetings to all of you! I hope you enjoy this edition "The On Ramp"! The theme for this month is Summer. It includes articles on traveling, summer safety, outdoor cooking and more.
One of my favorite "summer time traditions" is making home-made popsicles. I picked up a set of Popsicle Molds and can keep the freezer full of my favorite frozen delights all summer long! I chose this style of popsicle mold because it uses regular wooden popsicle sticks that you can purchase very inexpensively and not worry about losing them. Some popsicle molds require you to use the same plastic holder over and over...and once you lose that...you are sunk.
My very favorite is to take Vanilla Yogurt and put it in the blender with fresh berries...they make the most wonderful (and healthy) popsicles for a quick cool snack. A quart of chocolate milk is perfect for fudgesicles. Are you a tea lover? Make a strong batch of your favorite iced tea and freeze it into pops for a very refreshing treat (Mint is awesome).
