Here's my recipe for popsicles.

I'm really cheap so this is the lowest cost way of making
them that I know.

Go to the dollar store and buy a popsicle mold for making
6 popsicles at a time.

Go to Aldi and buy a bottle of their cherry or cranberry
and pomegranite juice for about $1.69 a bottle.  

Fill the molds with the juice and place in the freezer
until they are frozen solid.

When you take them out run the mold under hot water to get
them to release from the mold.

They taste great and have a good texture.

Johnny Cakes are cornbread shaped like pancakes. This is a very basic and very old recipe. I learned how to make them from my grandmother.

1/2 cup plain cornmeal

1/4 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup boiling water

Shortening for greasing the skillet

Mix the cornmeal and salt in a bowl. Pour the boiling water over the cornmeal and stir. Let the mixture stand for about five minutes. If the mixture is too thick to spread in the pan, add one to two tablespoons of water.

Heat a lightly greased skillet or griddle. Pour the mixture into the skillet. You can make small Johnny cakes or one large one.

Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
