My kids have lots of books, but one of my very favorite books to read right before bed is a book called The Red Lemon.  I won’t go into literary detail about this child’s tale in this post.  Instead … Continue reading →

Strawberry Donut Holes

Strawberry Donuts

One thing I love more than donuts, are home-made donuts!  These donut holes are made with fresh strawberries which makes them extra sweet and delicious! I hate surprises.  I mean I love them, or rather, I love the idea of surprises, but I really don't have the patience to wait for the actual surprise.  This creates quite a bit of tension between me and my husband.  Each gift giving occasion is a source of stress for the poor chap.   A few … Continue reading →

Strawberry Tiramisu Angel Food Cake

Strawberry Tiramisu Angel Food Cake

Strawberry desserts are perfect this time of year! This angel food cake is a light dessert that combines strawberries as well as mascarpone, Kahlua and lady fingers-all the ingredients for a classic Italian Tiramisu! I don't make cakes that often.  I prefer cupcakes like these Cherry Coke cupcakes to be honest.  They are easier to decorate for one thing.  All you need are the right decorating tips then you can swirl … Continue reading →

Strawberry Ricotta Cookies

Strawberry Ricotta Cookies

Strawberry desserts have a way of reminding us of summer.  The fresher the better!

Strawberry Thumbprints

Strawberry Thumbprints

Strawberry Thumbprints I do not like taking my kids to Sam's.  For one thing, I end up spending way more money than when I shop alone!  Some how books and giant bags of M & M's always make their way into my cart!  Another reason I don't like taking my kids to Sam's is because of the wide aisles.  Sounds odd, I know.  But I think my kids see this extra space as an invitation to run, play, skip, hop and dance.  It calls to them and draws … Continue reading →

Strawberry Rice Krispies and a Giveaway

kfire_giveaway

  It's no secret that I am NOT a big fan of Jello.  At least not in the wiggly, jiggly, traditional sense.  I have too many memories of Jello molds with raisins, carrots and apples.  Ack!  But I used Jello today.  I'm actually glad I did!  Only strawberry gelatin could turn my Rice Krispies the perfect shade of pink for these hearts.  The bonus was the strawberry flavor enveloping each rice puffed morsel.  Lip smacking good!  I suppose … Continue reading →

Strawberry, Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry, Strawberry Shortcake

I am not a big fan of strawberry shortcake ( the dessert or the character-I always preferred Blueberry Muffin).  I do like parts of the dessert, mainly the sweetened strawberries and the cream.  It's the biscuit that does me in.  To me, biscuits are to be buttered and used to sop up something savory, like gravy. I like the IDEA of strawberry shortcake, however.  So I thought of a way to re-create the dessert that suits my own tastes.  I love … Continue reading →
