strawberry froyo

April 20, 2011
My littlest lady love was in dire need of a special healthy dessert with her lunch.  Enter pink frozen yogurt, as any girly-girl deserves.
 Strawberry Froyo

1 c sliced strawberries
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c water
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 c plain yogurt

In a sauce pan, add the water, vanilla, sugar and strawberries and boil for 10-12 minutes.  The mixture will reduce and thicken a bit.  After they're done, place in the refrigerator to allow it to cool.   Once cool, "liquify" using a blender or food processor.  Add in yogurt and process until smooth.  Freeze mixture for about two hours.  Serve with sprinkles!  (And, since it's Easter season, I threw in some special bunny-shaped fruit snacks...and a cherry on top just for giggles.) 
Be warned.  This could be messy for a little do-it-yourself-er.

quack! quack!

I'm in Texas keeping my sweet niece for the week and have had so much fun with her.  She's almost two and is quite the mobile monster and daredevil!

For our morning snack, Sophie had some egg chicks.

These little chicks are adorable, albeit not quite as cute as my love muffin.

I hard-boiled some eggs and used carrots cut into triangles for the beak.  I used peppercorns for the eyes, but I would have used black sesame seeds had they been in the kitchen.
This little chick approves!
