Ashley of Baker By Nature is one of the sweetest souls I know in the food blogging world. To be honest, I first noticed Ashley by the kind comments she left on other blogs and I quickly fell in love with her innovative recipes which she churns out from her small apartment in Brooklyn. Ashley balances decadent sweet treats like these toffee coffee chocolate chip blondies with healthy, creative salads. Her quinoa salads are on my to-cook list this summer and I’ll definitely earn some brownie points with my breakfast-and-pizza-loving husband when I make Ashley’s breakfast pizza for him.
Now let’s ring out this Summer N0-Bake Party with some spice. Happy First Day of Summer to all of you!
Update September 2013:
I made Ashley’s creative popsicles this summer and they were AMAZING!
I even made my own magic shell for them and added colorful sprinkles.
This is how you can make sure own popsicle magic shell:
- Place 1/2 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet) into a narrow glass. Melt in the microwave at 15 sec. intervals. Stirring each time. Once melted stir in 1 tbsp vegetable oil (or coconut oil).
- Dip frozen popsicles into magic shell and tap off excess. Immediately add sprinkles. Enjoy right away or freeze popsicles again.
