As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Savoring Summer {Week 3 ~ Cappuccino Pops}





We have had some glorious weather here in the lingering spring. But this week the heat and humidity have kicked open the door of summer! 

On a sultry summer day, an ice cold popsicle is so refreshing. Today I'm going to share Kati's recipe for a grown-up popsicle...Cappuccino Pops. She featured these caffeinated coolers in her 31-day series, Pinterest Completed. We were happy to be her taste testers and declared them delicious.


Kati's recipe


Cappuccino Pops

3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons espresso, room temperature
2 teaspoons cocoa powder


1. Combine the cream and 1/4 cup condensed milk. Divide the mixture among the molds. Freeze until almost solid, about 1 hour. 

2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the espresso, cocoa powder and the remaining 1/4 cup condensed milk; refrigerate until cold. 

3. Divide the mixture among the molds. Insert the ice-pop sticks, piercing the cream layer; freeze until solid, about 4 hours. Run warm water over the molds to remove the pops; dust the cream layer with more cocoa powder if desired. 


Do you ever eat a popsicle on a hot summer afternoon? They're not just for kids, you know!
