Blog Crush with Katie’s Cucina

Blog-Crush-with-katie's-cucina-and-mysweetzepolFor years I have been reading a handful of blogs and I’m constantly inspired by them. This new series will make appearance on Mondays and will showcase some of the bloggers that I follow on a regular basis. The beauty is that most of them are personal friends in real life and all thanks to the strong community that has been built through out the years.

My first blog crush is Katie from Katie’s Cucina. I met Katie, during the first Food Blog Forum and then came across her while working on some events like food bloggers bake sales, other conferences, cookie swaps and meet-ups. Along the years a beautiful friendship was born and now she is one the food bloggers that inspires me the most and I am so thrilled and honor to have her be my first guest during the blog crush series.

Strawberry and Cream Ice Pops

Summer is a great time to experiment with cold treats to keep the kids cool during long hot summer days. My girls love to be outside and play around our small backyard, they play volleyball, frisbee, and ride the bike and scooter. Having some cool treats for them to snack on is almost mandatory.

Baking is all about measurements and this recipe can’t be any more easier, with just three ingredients.
