Before yesterday, I couldn’t remember the last time I had strawberry milk. Milk milk? Every morning with my cereal. Chocolate milk? I’d rather not say. But strawberry milk? Not since sometime in my now too-distant childhood. What’s up with that?
As with most problems, I blame growing up. While I typically can’t stand the taste of artificial strawberry, pink milk I was always into. But somewhere along the way, without any warning, and without really noticing, it became an inappropriate thing to drink.
Well, not anymore, not when you can make it fresh. Join me in bringing strawberry milk back.
Believe me, I love crêpes as much as the next person, but when you think about it, they’re really just thin layers of batter most commonly wrapped around nutella, strawberries and banana slices. Does that sound delicious? Yes, of course. But how does it compare to the symphony that is warm, caramelized strawberries, bananas and nutella enclosed in a thick crunchy wrapper?
Yeah, I thought so.
I’m hanging on to summer for dear life.
Now don’t get me wrong, I adore fall. I love the sweaters, the cinnamon, the few pounds of acceptable weight gain, and taking only one shower a day. I typically have no problem with the summer-to-fall transition, but am finding myself struggling with it this year. I don’t want to let go of the late sunsets, the weekends away and the nights without homework, but I suppose all good things must come to an end. I’m seeing to it that they go out with a bang.
These strawberries & cream cupcakes, dressed in the most summery cupcake liners I could find, are part of that endeavor.
Summer is almost over. It’s back to school for me next Tuesday and I’m really not happy about it. So unhappy that I bought a bag of potato chips last night along with not one, but two different flavors of chip dip (french onion and buffalo sour cream), because I
didn’t want to couldn’t decide on just one. Indecisive gluttony is not one of my more charming traits.
Kind of like how I couldn’t decide between strawberry or blueberry pie, so I made this mostly strawberry pie with a few blueberries sprinkled throughout. Unlike the chip-dip slip, adding the blueberries was one of my better decisions.
Nothing says summer like a homemade berry pie, so here’s to hoping this latest creation helps me keep the fall and new school year at bay. Add naive and wishful thinking to my list of character flaws, but enough about me. Let’s talk strawberry pie.
