Article Excerpt:

You may have noticed that Ricki from Diet, Dessert, and Dogs and I are hosting a new event called the SOS Kitchen Challenge.  The even features a key ingredient each time, which you can choose to make sweet or savory.  The event is in the final two days - entries are due by midnight on Tuesday 4/20 - and we are having so much fun watching recipe contributions roll in! i can't wait to share the round-up with all of you;  I am so inspired by the creativity our readers are demonstrating. Amazing! 

Feeling inspired, I decided to add a sweet contribution to the recipe round up as well: Beet-Cherry Creamsicle. Roasted beets, cherries, coconut milk, cardamom, vanilla. Bam. Awesome. Sugar-free popsicles, with vegetables inside? Right on!  These things are rich, sweet, and wonderfully flavored.  I had all I could do to stop eating it right out of the blender.
