Strawberry Festival

Wednesday, June 27th, we will be hosting the first ever food festival over at The Virtual Kitchen, Strawberry Festival.

Now that I have more than ten pounds of strawberries, I need some inspiration. Please send me your strawberry recipes-- pies, shortcakes, muffins, truffles, or scones. What's your favorite way to enjoy strawberries? Send me your recipes by email, or post them to your cooking blog or main blog and send me the link by email or in this combox.

Join the fun, contribute a recipe, then pull up a virtual chair at the virtual table next Wednesday to sample everyone else's great ideas. Spread the word and feel free to use my photograph in your posts. Here's a small version for your convenience.

One of my favorite pies....http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Two-Tier-Strawberry-Pie/Detail.aspx

And don't forget freezing them in small batches for strawberry smoothies (if you're healthy) or milkshakes (if you're not:) for the rest of the year! :)

Have you tried rumpot or couli? Both sauces, one hard the other not... or even a super simple sorbet based on the couli... check it out at The Home Gourmet

This recipe is from my Grandma, healthy, refreshing and delicious!

Mile High Dessert

Crust:
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
mix together, press in 9x13 pan and bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cool. Crumble and use for bottom and top of dessert.

Filling:
10 oz pkg frozen strawberries (thawed)
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Beat for 20 minutes (use a BIG bowl) fold in small cool whip.
place in 9x13 pan on top of crumble crust/top with some of the crumble and freeze overnight.

Another favorite and a lite dessert for those watching their figures...

Lite Strawberry Pie

Container of cool whip
pkg dry sugar free strawberry jello
fresh or frozen strawberries
graham cracker pie crust.

Mix the cool whip with the dry jello, add the strawberries, place in crust, refrigerate!

Easy and a favorite!

One of my favorite desserts is vanilla ice cream with this strawberry topping:

1-2 lbs Quartered (or thick-sliced) strawberries (amount depends on how much you want to make)
1 bottle of late-harvest chardonnay (the bottles are usually smallish)
A little sugar

Simmer the strawberries in the chardonnay until the liquid has reduced to a somewhat syrupy consistency. If necessary, sweeten with sugar. Spoon over ice cream and serve IMMEDIATELY.

It's been a long time since I made this (darn alcohol restrictions during pregnancy and breastfeeding), and I wrote this out from memory, so I hope I got it right! Because when it's right, it's divine.
