With the heat wave that’s hitting the West Coast, all I want to do these days is lounge around in a hammock, fanning myself while eating delicious icy treats. While the former is slightly harder to do, considering I live in a small city apartment, the latter is much more achievable. I was strolling through the farmer’s market this past weekend, when I saw the fresh abundance of peaches prevalent at every farmers’ stand. Instantly, the idea of a summer pop, striped to signify summer and bursting with peachy goodness popped into my mind.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups chopped fresh peaches
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp sugar + ⅛ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk

Combine water and ½ sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. When it comes to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, until all the sugar is melted. Set aside and let cool– this will be your simple syrup.

Next, combine the fresh peaches and about 2 tb water in a saucepan over medium heat. Crush the peaches gently with a potato masher or wooden spoon as the pan is heating up. You want to make sure you don’t burn the peaches, but heat them enough to let them juice. When the peaches are mostly just clumps, strain the mixture over a bowl and keep the juice. Add the simple syrup to the peaches until it’s sweetened to your liking– I used about ¾ of the syrup.

Lastly, we’ll create the cream mixture. Mix together the greek yogurt, milk, and 1tbsp sugar and vanilla. Then it’s time to create the pops! Alternate pouring the peach mixture and cream mixture into the popsicle mold, freezing for 20 minutes in between each layer.

Eats // Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

cream cheese frosted sugar cookie recipe

Sometimes my best remedy for not feeling well is just a cookie (who doesn’t feel better after a cookie, ya know?). When you combine this theory with a lack of energy and ingredients, it results in me getting creative with what I have. This is how my cream cheese frosted sugar cookie combination was born.

I used boxed recipes for the cookies and icing because normal people don’t make cookies from scratch for themselves when they’re sick, (at least that’s what I like to tell myself). If you’re one of the exceptions, please pray for me to be more like you.

I was working on an upcoming DIY project that involves cake. Really I could just end it all right there and it would be exciting in and of itself, but since I’m the kinda girl that plays nice, I thought I’d share the recipe with you. You can thank me later after you’ve had about three slices…

Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttermilk Cake

3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
6 Tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbsp melted butter
6 Tbsp buttermilk
1 egg
1 egg white

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 count muffin pan with liners. In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.
In a bowl of an electric mixer mix together the cocoa powder and 3 tbsp of hot water until a thick paste forms. Add buttermilk, butter, egg and egg white making sure to scrape down half way through. Add the flour mixture and mix until smooth. Bake for 20 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 pkg cream cheese, 8 oz
1 1/2 c powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Beat the cream cheese until fluffy and then slowly mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla.
