Hey Look - blog header



I'm planning my daughter's 3rd birthday party right now.  The invitations have been sent out and it'll be her first real big party with friends & games and loads of party yummies. We're hosting a yard party, because right now it seems that our living room won't be big enough to fit all the guests + the weather is really lovely here at the moment (now please don't let it rain!). There'll be a birthday cake of course (Ella wants strawberry, so i'm making the Pioneer Woman's "shortcake cake", which is delicious!), cupcakes by the cupcake goddess (which I won in a giveaway on Tahdoimme - yay!), veggie sticks, savory treats AND popsicles.

I won't have too much time the days before the party, so I decided that popsicles are great for preparing ahead of time. I plan to start making them next week (a week before the party) and now I am faced with a seriously difficult decision: which ones to make? There are so many absolutely delicious sounding recipes out there, but somehow I need to narrow it down to 5 flavors. Or maybe 6, or perhaps even 8. I've already decided on lemon & greek yoghurt popsicles and rootbeer float pops (but i'm still looking for the perfect recipe for these). Do you have any tried and tested pop recipe favorites? If yes, I'd love to read about them.

Here's a little round-up of yummy recipes I found around the web. Now help me pick!
