2nd Year Celebration & Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

It has been 2 years. Time just fly. It seems like yesterday was my first post on Homemade Granola. Of course if you were to compare my first photo then and the photos now, you will notice the difference in my growth with this blog. Do I cringe when I see my old photos? Of course. Many times I’ve contemplated to reshoot my old recipes. Besides not having the time for that, I decide to keep the history, instead of erasing it. I am eternally grateful for the rocky beginning that pushes me to improve my cooking skills. I started blogging with the recipes I cook daily, even just for 1 person. To share and inspire others to start cooking too. My family made fun of me.. “How can you post your recipes online? Aiyo so malu (embarassing)”. “Don’t waste your time cooking & blogging, go do something more useful.” From that to teaching cooking class is a HUGE thing for me. Everyday I count my blessings for all the opportunities that came along and people who believed in me. 

I can’t believe I forgot about the date until yesterday. I did reminded myself a month earlier. Things cropped up out of nowhere in June. It happens and it’s totally alright. But I didn’t make anything to celebrate. So I gave myself a marvellous treat instead – a morroccan spa at Hamman Spa. Totally refreshed and rejuvenated.

Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

I got so excited when I saw this pin on Pinterest, that I immediately went to buy strawberries. I lightly sweeten the yogurt for a natural taste, but forgot that the sweetness level will drop after it is frozen. My friend’s kids wrinkled their nose after a taste, so I highly recommend to increase the sweetness from your usual preference during preparation. These popsicles are so easy, it’s strange to call this a recipe. Well for the sake of the food blogging, here’s the recipe.

I would love to hear the things you are grateful for. Please leave me a comment below.

  2. Dear Shannon,
    I discovered your blog recently and have been reading through it before bed every night! I admire what you do and your healthy fun recipes! It also made me feel like to visit Malaysia soon again – I am half Malaysian and half Japanese. Thank you for sharing your ideas. I will try this popsicles for my children, maybe with tropical fruits I get here in Bali.

    • Hi Rumi, your message make my day brighter! It’s readers like you that kept me going with this blog, it’s a lot of hard work maintaining it sometimes. Hope you get to visit Malaysia one day, it’s not far from Bali.

  3. I am glad you didn’t listen to your family and stuck with it, Shannon. I don’t comment often but I always enjoy reading your posts and your comments on Google Plus. Here’s to many more happy years of cooking and blogging!

    P.S. Never mind the sweetness factor, those popsicles are gorgeously swirly and I love them.

    • Thanks for dropping by my blog Stacy! I’m not the type to comment often too, I just drool at your beautiful bakes! To many more happy years of blogging to both of us 🙂
