EDIT 6/23/14: Hey everyone from Buzzfeed! Glad you're enjoying my recipe! Let me know what you think in the comments, and if you enjoy my site feel free to check out the homepage and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram :)
Summer has finally cooled down a bit--in more ways than one! Not only has the heat wave broken for the time being, but I actually find myself not rushing off to somewhere else once I get home. It's a nice feeling.
My boyfriend has a new job, the coveted 9-to-5, except 7-to-4, so I'm loving the extra time with him as well. Before, I would get home and it'd still be a few hours before he got out of work, and he would work every weekend. Now we both have weekends off, and get home around the same time. I cannot wait to have a free weekend so we can go away somewhere together, as I was trying to finagle time off to be able to do that on his old Monday-Tuesday days off. The first night of his new job we each made a separate dinner (he made sausage and sauce over noodles, I made a sandwich with goat cheese, tomato, cucumbers, and homemade garlic scape pesto) and watched Cabin in the Woods. It was lovely, and relaxing... well, as relaxing as it can be with THAT movie, it sure was a doozy. But kind of awesome for a horror movie geek like me ;)
The cooler weather (well, not by much, it's in the 80s, but better than 100s!) has allowed me to do what I love most--cook! I was feeling awfully stressy last week, I'd forgotten how much cooking/baking/recipe creating calms me. Sure, I may destroy the heck out of my kitchen. And I may stress a bit after, when I realize I have to do a metric fuckton of dishes, but in the moment I'm at peace.
Kiwi Moscato Popsicles
(Makes 8 small pops)
- 2 ripe kiwis
- 2 tbs sugar of choice (I used a bit of honey)
- 1/2 cup moscato
- 1/4 cup water
NOTE: My popsicle molds are TINY. I am positive that you will need to double this recipe for larger molds. To give you an idea, each well in my pop mold is about 2 shots worth, or 2 oz.
-Peel kiwis and puree in food processor (or if you're a Pampered Chef FIEND like me then get yourself one of these, PERFECT for this). Stir in sugar and let sit for ten minutes.
-Mix in moscato and water. Fill popsicle wells with just a little bit of headspace to allow for freezing expanding.
-To remove from molds, run warm (not hot!) water over the well and pull stick gently in a corkscrew motion.
