Strawberry Cheesecake Tiramisu

Strawberry Cheesecake Tiramisu

I happen to think that tiramisu is a great summertime dessert because it require any cooking and it is served cold. It is also great for entertaining because it can – and should -be made well in advance of when you want to serve it. The only drawback to a tiramisu as a summertime dessert is that it doesn’t make use of any of the ... Read More »

Individual Strawberry Clafoutis

Individual Strawberry Clafoutis

A clafoutis is somewhere between a cake and a custard. It’s a french dish, a baked dessert (although you can make savory clafoutis as well) that has lots of milk and eggs in it and is held together with a little flour for added stability. In general, clafoutis have a great eggy flavor to them and go well with a variety of different fruits. Pears ... Read More »

Strawberry Bread Pudding

Strawberry Bread Pudding

I really like that flavor and the texture of my cream cheese bread pudding, as it’s slightly firmer than many bread puddings and has a hint of cheesecakiness to it. It’s almost like having two desserts in one. I decided to take advantage of the cheesecake angle of the dessert and play with the flavors in the dish a little bit. Strawberries, for instance, are ...

Milk Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries with Macadamia Nuts

The best thing about baking a batch of cookies with macadamia nuts in them, like White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies or Macadamia Oatmeal Lace Cookies, is that you’re left with a bunch of macadamia nuts to use up in other recipes. Macadamia nuts can be kind of pricey, so they’re not necessarily something I keep on hand all the time, but their buttery flavor and ... Read More »

Strawberry Mascarpone Cream Puffs

Strawberry Mascarpone Cream Puffs

I am flush with strawberries right now. It’s still relatively early in strawberry season, which generally runs from late spring through summer, but the berries I’ve picked up this week have all been sweet and full of flavor. The only problem with having so many strawberries around is that they start to go bad rather quickly, so I try to use them up by adding ... Read More »

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Swiss Roll

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Swiss Roll

A swiss roll is the same thing as a jelly roll: a thin sponge cake that is rolled up into a spiral and filled with a sweet filling of some kind. The cake itself is simple and plain. Unlike butter cakes, which tend to crack or crumble when they are handled a lot, this type of sponge cake is very pliable. It is easy to ... Read More »

Strawberry Curd

A curd is a thick, sweet-tart type of sauce that is typically made with citrus juice, eggs and butter. It is known for being rich in flavor, with a very silky texture. I call it a sauce for lack of a better category, as curds are much thicker than most sauces (rather pudding-like). This version of a curd almost doesn’t fit the description above at ... Read More »

Fresh Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Fresh Strawberry Frozen Yogurt, coned

Almost every shop that sells frozen yogurt is now offering “tart” yogurt, which is little more than yogurt-flavored yogurt, complete with the tang of the real thing. I like it, but not as much as I like regular yogurt or my homemade frozen yogurt, which uses a base of tangy Greek-style yogurt that is lightened with beaten egg whites. The tartness of the commercial frozen ... Read More »
