Deep Fried Strawberries

Deep Fried Strawberries
I know what you may be thinking. It’s a little out of the ordinary BUT if you give this a try, I think you just might be pleasantly surprised. Strawberries are everywhere right now and I’m always looking for ways to use them. We’ve already shared a trio of beverage ideas using strawberries: STRAWBERRY MARGARITA GRANITA , STRAWBERRY AGUA FRESCA , and a NUTELLA STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE. When my friend mentioned to me that she had DEEP FRIED STRAWBERRIES for dessert while dining out the other night I knew immediately I HAD to make them and I’m so happy I did. I went with a more savory batter to compliment the sweet, sweet strawberries and was super pleased with the results. We dipped ours in NUTELLA and the kids enjoyed theirs with a small bit of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. I also left the stems on making it easier to hold onto while battering. What to do: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Want more of your favorite red fruit?

Better-Than-Crack-Brownies I’m sorry for doing this to you. I really am. But see, last Friday while I was on a 10-hour road trip heading for vacation, I received this recipe from a reader named Liz. Liz, I love you. That’s all I have to say. Nutella Ice Cream This is, by far, the best ice cream I’ve made. And it’s among the easiest — just a couple of ingredients, very little effort, and the best, chocolate-y, most decadent result. If you’re not familiar with nutella, check in the grocery store where you find the peanut butter — you’ll probably find it. And when you do, take the jar, bring it home (pay for it first), spread a tablespoon or two on a piece of bread, and taste.

Finale Fridays Blog Series and Lemon Chips Recipe Somewhere between when I started this blog and learning my way around a DSLR and Twitter, I think I lost sight of my original vision. I’ve always loved plating desserts and really wanted to focus on it. So I’ve decided to attempt a blog series, Finale Fridays. I hope to post something related to the art of the plated dessert. It might be my own creation, a technique, tool or just something I saw somewhere.

30 of the World's Greatest Wedding Cakes Few things are more important on a wedding day (apart from both partners turning up; the ring being secure; and nobody objecting during the ceremony) than the cake.

Nutella Filled Sugar Donuts 2K+ What would you say if I told you that I don’t really eat donuts for breakfast? Or, honestly, any sweets? I’m more of a savory kind of girl when it comes to breakfast.

Inspiration and ideas of dessert recipes such as cupcakes and muffins, pies and cakes, cookies, biscuits and brownies Cake pops Finally, the Bakerella compilation book of her cake pops. A cake for two Every celebration needs a sweet little cake, albeit mini and for two. Choc chip cookies Ozark Pudding I was flipping through an old holiday cookbook last night - I don't even know the name of the cookbook or when it was published because the cover and the first 12 pages have been long missing to the point of where I had to fashion a cover out of card stock just to preserve what was left of it. I know that based on the typeset it is pretty old, and it is some kind of holiday cookbook because it has specific sections for holidays and occasions. This cookbook was in my mom's stuff when The Cajun and I cleaned out her house after finally selling it after she passed away, though it does have my kid sister's name in the front of it. Since neither she nor my brother were there to pack and lay claim to anything left there, I guess I own it now by default and simple possession.

Puppy Chow I LOVE LOVE LOVE when some of the most yummiest treats are also the most easiest to make. Ten years ago my friend Nancy gave each woman in our small group a beautifully packaged container of Puppy Chow aka Muddy Buddies. This was the first time I had ever had this “crazy good” treat. From the first bite I was hooked but also intrigued by what it was made of. When she told me how she made it I couldn’t believe it because it was such an easy recipe yet the combination of all the ingredients produced such a wonderful taste.
