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.
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.
I think this is my new favorite fruit salad, Honey Ginger Lime Fruit Salad. It’s light, refreshing and has just enough sumpin’ sumpin’ to complement the fruit and enhance the flavor. It really does bring out the best in just about any fruit used.
Ok, so the other day for some reason, I decided I HAD to have a popover. It seemed something I could whip up without too much hassle, especially since I usually make my Popovers in a Muffin Tin. I love making those popovers; they’re just stupid simple and so delish. Well, ya’ll know how that goes. I decided I needed something special to go with my Popovers, so I decided I better make Easy Strawberry Butter. And of course, I kept thinking that both Popovers and Easy Strawberry Butter would be great for New Year’s brunch. I cannot believe how fast the days are whizzing by…it’s just days now before I have to remember to put 2019 on everything. That gets harder, every year!
