Cherry Strawberry Ice Pops

It has been so hot this week in NYC. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. I will take this heat over the winter we had any day. However, I hate that when I take Emmi out of her stroller, her hair is matted to her head and she is soaked with sweat. So, … Continue reading
