Summer and desserts go hand in hand. Most of the time, dessert for me will be fruit. Most often, berries (my favorite!!). But every once in a while, I like to mix things up a little, and Mini Chef is never one to argue with dessert. In fact, he got into the kitchen with me and had fun helping me make this! We later took these to a friends house and enjoyed them there after a delicious brunch of leftovers from her Columbian independence day dinner the night before (which we were also there for. YUM!!!). Is it a coincidence that my closest friends are the people who tend to feed me when I visit?
This is actually the first recipe that I’ve done for this blog in my new kitchen! I’m still unpacking boxes and feeling somewhat overwhelmed, but at least the kitchen is settled enough for me to get back to work!
I have to admit that it’s been a while since I’ve spent a full day on work. Between settling my mother’s affairs after her passing, sorting through her things and then downsizing into a smaller house, cooking has been on the back burner for a while. Pun intended.
Thankfully, I usually plan ahead, so you guys still got plenty of new recipes while I was busy packing and moving. But now I’m back at this thing and starting with a blank slate. A completely new and fresh start. I’m excited to be getting creative in the kitchen again… it feels pretty good!!
Almost as good as this dessert tasted….
