100 posts and 2 years. And, as if that wasn't reason enough to celebrate, I bought myself a Popsicle maker. Pretty obviously, I had to inaugurate it. And, I did.
May 2010 was when SSTT entered her third year of life. Woot! I never believed I'd come this far with my blog. But, yes I have. Within two years, I've gained a lot more experience in blogging, many more co-blogger friends and certainly learnt so much more in the kitchen. At this moment, I was seriously considering deleting some of my initial posts (my first post being a simple version of Bhel Puri) because they all look so pathetic. Later, it struck me that I'd rather not. It is only when I have those old, badly written, terribly structured and picturized posts (not that I'm very good at pictures even now, but, I'm learning!) that I realize how far I've come in this culinary journey. Of course, thanks to all you readers out there and most certainly to all those of you who go ahead and try the recipes I share with you on SSTT.
Definitely, a little something to celebrate ought to be sweet. With temperatures soaring, all I could think of was a frozen treat. My little sonny enjoyed it to the hilt; I just had to take pictures of him gorging down these strawberries and cream popsicles.
You can even see the little orange bowl in which he loves to keep his munch-ables, whilst eating anything.
10-12 strawberries, washed, hulled and quartered
1 Cup heavy cream
2 tbsp thick yogurt
1/2 Cup sugar (or as per your taste)
- Add all ingredients in food chopper/blender/processor and run on medium/high speed until everything has blended in to a creamy texture
- Pour in popsicle maker and freeze for about 6-8 hours
- When ready to serve, douse popsicle maker in warm water for about 30-50 seconds and gently remove popsicles
