Grilled pound cake with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream and a generous serving of fresh strawberries and blueberries is the perfect no fuss dessert. Lightly grilling the pound cake makes the cake more aromatic and brings out the richness of the cake. The warm cake is then topped with a scoop of sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream and then covered with beautiful fresh strawberries and blueberries.
Strawberry Pretzel Salad is a sweet and salty retro dessert. The crust is a layer of crushed pretzels, butter and a sprinkle of sugar. It is baked until golden brown and then topped with a layer of sweetened cream cheese and whipped topping. The last layer is made up of sliced strawberries and strawberry jello.
Summer is around the corner and what better way to enjoy the warmer days than with a cold scoop of ice cream with all of the toppings and a fun umbrella? Serving ice cream in a cupcake liner is the great way to prep for a party or to transport to another location such as the park or even work. This saves time and is great for clean up. Since the ice cream is already pre-scooped you don’t have to fuss with it later or worry about the ice cream sitting out on the table melting. The aluminum cups double as a serving dish so that’s one less dish or bowl that you have to clean up.
The Lime Truck’s fresh limeades and agua frescas inspired us to make our own watermelon agua fresca. Agua fresca is a Mexican drink that is essentially fruit infused water. It’s light, refreshing and delicious. It’s easy to make and the best part is that it requires few ingredients. You can substitute with other fruits as well such as strawberries, cantaloupe – really any fruit that you can puree. I sweetened the drink with agave nectar, but if you prefer you can use regular sugar as well. This is fruit infused water so it’s not sugar sweet like a lemonade, but you’re more than welcome to make it as sweet as you like!
Happy 4th of July! Today we’re doing a guest post for our dear friends, Hong & Kim of The Ravenous Couple. They are getting married at the end of July and the month leading up to the wedding can be tremedously stressful. So we are sharing a recipe on their blog so that we can help free up some of their time so that they can focus on the big day. Marshmallow pops are a fun and easy treat to whip up in little time. Kids simply adore these treats and it’s a fun recipe to make together with your child. You can dip the marshmallow and the kids can decorate. It’s a great red, white and blue treat for 4th of July! Happy Independence Day!
