Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

I have been on a bit of a strawberry rhubarb baking kick these past couple of weeks. But, in my defense, how could I not be? It seems that everywhere I go these early summer fruits are looking at me, begging to be transformed into a delicious dessert, like Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp and so many others. I recently made a Strawberry Shortcake Shortcut which is a quick, delicious and easy take on the original and an amazing Strawberry Rhubarb Galette. (Which I may have had more than two pieces … [Read more...]

Strawberry Rhubarb Galette

In my neck of the woods, strawberry season is now in full swing! Add to that, the fact that rhubarb is still going strong too and the dessert ideas are endless. I have been baking up a storm these days and recently posted my recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Shortcut. Music Man, who isn't usually a dessert guy had this about three times in the past week...and he assembled it himself!  Not that he doesn't make meals, because he does.  It's just unusual for him to tackle a dessert, but this … [Read more...]

Super Easy Strawberry Shortcake Shortcut

I love to cook and bake, but some days you just need to take a shortcut. Today is definitely a strawberry shortcake shortcut day. (Shortcake shortcut...is that alliteration?)

We still wanted the shortcake though, so I … [Read more...]

One of my favourite times of the year has finally arrived...STRAWBERRY SEASON!

You can eat them as a component in the most elaborate dessert on the planet and they are scrumptious or... eat them individually, fresh from the … [Read more...]

Recipe for Strawberry Muffins

Strawberry Muffins ~ I love everything about July! First of all...it is a LONG way from our dark, cold and snowy winter. Second, and just as important is the fact that everywhere you look there are baskets and baskets of fresh, local, luscious, juicy, sweet strawberries.

It's possible, because where I live in Eastern Canada these locally farmed, … [Read more...]

July Means it is Strawberry Shortcake Time! {Recipe}

Where I live, in southern New Brunswick, the first week of July usually means its strawberry season.  Well for me, strawberry season means it's time for Strawberry Shortcake! I know there are many variations on this tasty treat...first there's the bottom layer; there's biscuits, white cake, sponge or angel food cake and marianne shells to name a few.  Then the berries themselves; whole, sliced, mashed, lots of juice, a little juice or maybe even frozen.  Finally the cream; freshly whipped, … [Read more...]
