Singles To Go Pops

Singles To Go Pops - Lady Behind The Curtain

If you’re like me you probably have a container of miscellaneous single serving packets of fruit flavored powder, lemonade and tea.  I was cleaning out my pantry the other day and came across some packets and decided to make some Singles To Go Pops.  This was a great way to use up some of those packets that had been hanging around for awhile plus my granddaughters loved them! Instead of using the instructed water I used 7-up.  It made every flavor sparkling good.  I even used the 7-up in my peach tea and raspberry green tea. A great and easy … Continue reading

No Churn Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Baked Lemon Blueberry Donuts

Baked Lemon Blueberry Donuts - Lady Behind The Curtain

They weren’t shipped to them ready to bake.  I remember watching the baker fry the … Continue reading
