Happy Independence Day! I hope you had a wonderful celebration! I really had full intention of making a Red White & Blue 4th of July dessert (I usually make these Mixed Berry Shortcakes every year) but in typical ADD fashion, I appropriated the strawberries for something else! These No Bake Lemon Custard “Possets”. I’m so glad I did because these truly are one of the best things I’ve ever tasted!
If you love strawberries and cream together, you’re really going to fall for this No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream. I think it’s the most strawberry-iest and the most creamiest ice-cream ever. As I was eating my cone, I had to look over at my son (who is here, again, helping with chores – I just had to brag on him a little) and exclaim, “This makes me happy!” He liked it, too, btw!! “Best ice cream ever.” was his comment.
Raise your hand if you like crepes. Okay, now raise your hand if you don’t like MAKING crepes! Or raise your hand if you’ve never even attempted crepes because you think you won’t like making them. You’re not alone. In my mind, there’s no doubt that crepes are absolutely delicious and there’s no doubt that they are a pain in the patootie to make. My answer to all that? Oven Sheet Pan Crepes.
Spring always makes me think of Rhubarb first and Strawberry second. And Artichokes, but that’s another story! And I love me some Rhubarb Sauce, sweet or savory, but I love me some Strawberry Rhubarb Compote even more. And in case you’re wondering, because not everyone knows, “compote” just means fruit cooked or preserved in a sugary syrup, and it just, well, sounds “fancier” than Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce.
A few weeks ago, Anna commented on my recipe for Horchata and asked where the recipe for my Horchata Arroz con Leche (Rice Pudding) that I promised to post was. (Anna, I hope you’re following so you see this, and sorry for the delay!) Horchata, if you’re not familiar, is a Mexican Aguas Fresca, a cool, creamy, cinnamony rice-based beverage. It’s so much better than it sounds; it’s absolutely delish, refreshing but with a little substance.
