Update: the winner of the Honey Creme Gift Set is Comment #94 Mary from Sisters Running in the Kitchen! Check out her blog (she writes it with her sister), it is adorable and she makes me homesick with her reviews of restaurants from my home town.
Also, you guys sure do like your spring desserts! Looks like I am going to have to add some rhubarb recipes to the site!
Yesterday was my baby’s 3rd birthday. It was a trifle traumatic for me. I no longer have a baby in my house. I only have kids. 3 just seems old to me. He still has a lot of baby-like qualities, like the pacifier, (which I know needs to go, but I dread the drama that goes along with taking it away) and the fact that his favorite thing to do is snuggle his momma. But soon I will be sending him off to college. My husband makes fun of my theatrics when it comes to our youngest child, he says that I baby him. And coddle him. And indulge him. And you know what I say? Sue me! I baby my baby! He just loves me so, that it is hard not to. He is just not being honest with himself, he will miss having a baby around too.
Isn’t his little crown cute? His teacher at school made it for him. If you are a local, Faith Lutheran Preschool is a wonderful little school.
How did I go from strawberry shortcake to a therapy session? Sorry ’bout that.
Back to strawberry, lemon, honey, and cream goodness. Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about some stuff I am really into right now? Well, the Honey Ridge Farms Honey Creme Lemon is still a bit of an obsession. On toast, a pan sauce for chicken, with some cheese and crackers; it is tangy and slightly sweet, and just about perfect on anything. I made those delicious Cream Cheese Biscuits with this creation in mind. I thought it would be good. I just didn’t know how good. So good, that I had about half of the one pictured above and immediately packed the rest up and delivered it to the neighbors. Be warned.
Whip the cream in a stand mixer. Start slowly and when the cream begins to get some volume, add the honey and sugar. Add the vanilla. Beat until soft peaks form.
Assemble your ingredients: the whipped cream, sliced strawberries, biscuits, and Honey Lemon Creme.
Add a generous dollop (don’t you just love that word?) of whipped cream and sliced strawberries.
Your neighbors are going to love you. If you do not have the Honey Lemon Creme (but I urge you to try some, it is so good) I would use the same amount of honey mixed with 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice as a substitute.
Since I am in a generous mood and my baby just turned 3, I will send a random commenter a Honey Creme Gift Set from Honey Ridge Farms. Leave a comment below between now and 11:59PM, May 2nd, and I will send you this Gift Set just because I like you.
Tell me what is your favorite spring time dessert?
