I don’t know about you, but we’re in the middle of a heat wave here in south Texas. It seems like every day is hotter than the one that came before. My kids spend most of their days in and out of the fridge looking for something to cool them off. One of the things they love most is a popsicle. Nothing says Summer like cooling off with an icy treat.
I consider myself a bit of an appliance snob. There’s something about a sleek new fridge or stove that makes me happy. I think it must be the same way that Jay Leno feels about cars! I love going to the showroom, even when I don’t need anything, to look at all the new models. That’s why I’m so happy that Electrolux asked me to write about their new French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator. This refrigerator is sleek and advanced. It even has the Perfect Temperature Drawer which provides ultimate control with a customizable, versatile temperature zone designed to store a variety of foods and beverages at the ideal temperature. I also love the adjustable, humidity controlled Crisper Drawers that keep fruits and vegetables fresher longer with self-closing drawers that provide a tighter seal to lock in freshness. If you’ve ever had produce ruined because the crisper drawer was too warm or too cold then you know how amazing this is! Writing this post is giving me a serious case of refrigerator envy!

As an added bonus, I’m lucky enough today to be posting one of Kelly Ripa’s recipes for a Spiced Peach-Mango Yogurt Pops, you know, because Pippa and I are totally bff’s! This is a perfect mix of flavors for both kids and grown-ups.
