Although it is officially May and should technically be warm out, this week has been some of the dreariest we've had in New York for a while. That being said, I do have some exciting news that you may have noticed.
I changed the name of my blog!!
This space is now officially called KATHERINE IN BROOKLYN. This change is something I have been wanting to do for a while and I'm so happy that I finally took the time to go through with it and give my site a small facelift. The name Katherine in Brooklyn reflects much more who I am as a person, a blogger, and someone who feels really at home where she lives. I know that I may not always live in Brooklyn, but this is where I created this blog and I feel like it perfectly captures my daily inspiration living in this big city. To me, Brooklyn is more than a geographical place - it's a place where I've learned more about myself, become more independent, developed a sense of the importance of travel, tasted new foods, and discovered my passions for cooking in my little apartment. I love the endless list of places to explore here, whether it's the food and entertainment scenes, outdoor space, or just aimlessly wandering around, and I wanted my blog to have a name that captured this. Brooklyn is a place that is constantly changing and I'm so happy to call it my home.
I hope you enjoy the new space and name! To celebrate, enjoy some Grapefruit Rosemary popsicles!
- Mix grapefruit juice, lemon juice, water, sugar, salt, and Rosemary in a sauce pan and heat until warm but not boiling. You want to make sure that the Rosemary infuses into the liquid. Let cool.
- Pour liquid into 6 popsicle molds about halfway up. Drop in some grapefruit chunks and freeze for one hour.
- Remove half filled molds from freezer and fill the rest of the way up with liquid. Add in some more chunks. Freeze for 30 minutes and add in popsicle sticks.
- Put back in the freezer and keep it there until frozen solid.
