We are loving the summer flavors! We have been grilling out tons. Eating salads by the gallon. This Sweet Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Chips has become a new staple. The cinnamon chips also make a fantastic Strawberries & Chocolate Nachos. This dessert may appear wonderfully decadent (it is) and involved (it is not). Such a simple dessert with huge flavor and great presentation. Then for the 4th of July Ralph made the awesome Brownie 'n Berries Dessert Pizza (pictured in the collage above). Except ours was not Gluten Free. He used BHG's fudgy brownie recipe. It was so good, people, so good.
This led me to remember that we used to make a strawberry soup all the time with OJ and heavy whipping cream but I have no idea what has come of that recipe. I found this recipe for Strawberry White Wine Soup. Ralph was out, the girls asleep and I was looking for something "girly" to make myself for dinner. This fit the bill.
Have I overwhelmed you with recipes to try yet? Let me leave you with two more, not sweet, recipes. I promise we eat more than sweets around here. It's just that the sweet food is so much more fun than the other food!
Head on over to www.101cookbooks.com and check out her Hummus with Green Goo (that I mentioned in my previous post). Then head over to my friend Jill's blog and check out her pita bread recipe. It was so easy and very yummy. The best part is Jill is always honest about what does and does not work for her so you don't have to feel bad if things don't quite work for you either! The hummus and pita bread go great together.
What yummy summer flavors have you been enjoying?
