Strawberry Shortcake Romanoff

romanoff 4

It’s getting close to summer, which means my refrigerator is stocked with fresh berries and my smoothie game has been on point. I even planted a couple of strawberry bushes this year, though so far I’ve only harvested about three. You’re going to need a lot more than that to make this adult take on strawberry shortcake, which is layered with soft brown sugar biscuits, juicy marinated strawberries, and sweetened whipped cream. Oh, and did I mention there’s booze in it?  😉   This[Read more]

Luckily, this cake is so adorable to[Read more]

Irresistible Raspberry Pie

Hello, my friends. May I interest you in another fruity, summery dessert? This one was a blast to make because I was able to teach myself two new skills: First, how to make a lattice pattern on the top of a pie (way easier than it looks) and second, that when it comes to fruit pies, FOLLOW ESTABLISHED RECIPES. I figured out that the reason all of my pies were coming out with soggy bottoms, burnt crusts, under-baked crusts, liquid fillings, dry fillings,[Read more]

Strawberry Mousse Cake: Tarte Frasier

I don’t think it’s very difficult to imagine what turned me on to this dessert. I love how beautiful the strawberries look all lined up neatly facing the outside of this cake, almost resembling a line of hearts. There is also the delicious vanilla chiffon cake layer at the bottom, soaking in all those delectable juices. Then of course there is the fresh and creamy strawberry mousse, which sounds like it might be difficult to make but is actually insanely easy.[Read more]
