Easy Fruit Popsicles

Easy Fruit Popsicles

Popsicles are consumed daily in our home during the spring and summer months. They are a staple in our freezer and my kids go through a large box a week. Not to mention they eat them all the time when they visit my parents and when they are at their friends houses. When it hits over 100 degrees in the beginning of June the popsicle storage continues to grow and grow. I grabbed some popsicle molds at the store and my kids have been in heaven created new flavors. The possibilities are endless. I use whatever I have on hand. …

That night they had a great big mural that everyone who wanted to could be apart of painting. I remember very distinctively the conversations I had with one of the 700 famers …

There are a few things that are key to a good burger. How the actual patty is seasoned and cooked. Along with the toppings that are placed on the burger itself.

It is in Tempe, Arizona and is called Lucilles BBQ. We ordered way too much food and I took home the left over onion straws. I had hamburger meat at home and I knew …
