Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and ask you to make it at home; you'll choose the second and bring it to our discussion to share. We'll meet to discuss both recipes and to sample the one you chose. We'll have a potluck of tasty treats! This month's selections are People's Pops by Nathalie Jordi, David Carrell, and Joel Horowitz and Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz, and our recipe choices are Strawberries & Cream from Peopl ...more

What a great little book! Lots of recipes for pops that I wouldn't have thought of, but seemed like so obviously a good idea I was surprised I hadn't. Looking forward to making some of these this summer.

Irritatingly Brooklyn-ish popsicle recipes. The recipes are ok, but the attitude is kind of insufferable. Instead, I recommend the Paletas book by Fany Gerson.

I really enjoyed this book -- and all the joy it brought to summer days and evenings. My fascination with refreshing treats began whenI received a Soda Stream as a birthday gift. I immersed myself in the making of simple syrups and other delicious elixirs using from herbs in my every expanding garden, organic sugars, and fruits. Then my mind turned to freezing these syrups and fruits in "poptails" -- both virgin and alcohol-based. I used lots of books (and found a surprising number of books on t ...more

The authors of “People’s Pops”-Nthalie Jordi, David Carrell, and Joel Horowitz- are the owners of the company by the same name in New York City. They seem a bit like hipsters (I could be wrong, but that’s what they seem like) and because of that they have a very casual way of doing and thinking. All of the recipes that they include are simple and easy. And they all look good. I really enjoyed not only the recipes, but also the little stories that they share throughout.

I initially picked up this

Yummy. This is one to own- so you can try out all the seasonal recipes throughout the year. The combinations are unique and the instructions clear. It is also a beautiful book. I made the pear, ginger and cream pops- but instead of putting the mix in molds, I froze it in a cake pan. Then I scooped up the frozen goodness to top my thanksgiving apple pie....very, very good. I really want to make the various watermelon flavored concoctions next year.

Eh. There are numerous ice lolly recipe books out in the market now. While this is not a terrible collection, there is nothing original to these recipes. Boozy ice lollies, savoury ice lollies, are clever ideas, but not new ones.

If you must get an ice lolly recipe book, I recommend Paletas by Fany Gerson.

I'm re-arranging and de-cluttering my kitchen, which means dusting off and testing the gadgets and uni-taskers to see if they are worth the space they take up. Got this because I'm definitely keeping the popsicle mold. Great, sometimes unexpected flavor combinations and instructions make this book a keeper too.

I have yet to try any of the recipes but am thoroughly delighted by the flavor combos. The 5 stars are for the read. The writing is whimsical and thoughtful. The authors included many ideas and helpful hints that are very handy for those not in the know. The photos are gorgeous and it all presents for a very nice bout of inspiration!

A great book if you want to make popsicles at home from fresh fruit, which I do! The straight up strawberry pops are awesome! I'll keep several of the recipes from the book and will be making them all summer!

While I've never been to People's Pops in Brooklyn, after reading this book, I feel like I've tasted their popsicles first hand. Chock-full of tips, this book illustrates how flavors can be combined to create great-tasting, flavor-packed icies. Funny and inspiring.

I bought a popsicle maker because I wanted to make healthier frozen treats. I wanted a book with recipes. This book is not the answer to that. The recipes in here are HEAVY on sugar. HEAVY! I think I got diabetes just reading it! Oh well, money lost lesson earned.

Enjoyable read. The recipes are interesting, I would try the more simple ones. The story and "voices" of the authors (and company owners) are fun.

DRC from Edelweiss. Love this book! Recipes are so easy to follow. Pictures were beautiful enough to inspire you to make pops all summer.

There are some inspiring flavor combos and general tips on making good pops. Now I just need to make a few. I'll probably save that for spring.

Smart and yummy

Also, very seasonal. Tons of good advice from the 'don't do this, we did and you won't dig it' school.

I expected to like this book a lot more. Nothing seems new or exciting. It was basically just a list of flavor combinations (and not terribly exciting ones).

This book made me want to make popsicles. It also made me want to make other things with the inventive combos.
