Peach Orange Popsicles

Peach Orange Popsicles

Continuing with the summer spirit, and because it’s 100 degrees out, popsicles seemed like a good, or should I say excellent idea to make. Because I only turned on the stove for 10 minutes, I didn’t add any unnecessary extra heat to my day :). Maybe you think it’s a little exaggerated on my part, but it’s really hot, and I have no air conditioning ;)
I few weeks back, my boyfriend decided he wanted us to make mojito popsicles, because we want to host a 14th of July gathering at home to watch the super fireworks show the city of Paris puts on to celebrate their Bastille Day.

Summer is here, really here! We are melting away in the streets of Paris as I write these lines. And while I did this, it occurred to me that baking on this hot hot day was probably not the best of ideas.

“Tarte aux abricots” is one of the many classics in French pastry, you can find it in almost every bakery or “boulangerie” (this is where they sell the bread here in France, and some other yummy treats!). It consists of a sablée dough, frangipane cream and apricots.

And now, this is all actually happening; a week ago we launched my new website, which is why this post is possible right now and my first dinner as a supper club host is just around the corner. :)
