Today I have an essential fruity dessert for you that everyone goes wild over!

peanut butter and strawberry crumble

This peanut butter strawberry crisp is essentially the perfect peanut butter jelly dessert that tastes delicious and may send you into a spin of nostalgia at the same time! 

I’m here for it.

Important questions first: what flavor of jelly is your favorite when it comes to good old fashioned PB & J? 

I’m strictly a strawberry jelly/jam person and always have been. My brothers only loved grape jelly so that’s what my mom bought growing up, meaning I pretty much never ate PB&J. Unless I managed to sneak in a jar of strawberry!

These days I love to do a grown up version of peanut butter & jelly using all sorts of jam flavors (if you’re new here, american spoon is my favorite forever!), but strawberry would still be my number one.

One of my favorite desserts to make is my strawberry cobbler. Or even my strawberry cobbler bars. Summer strawberries are just so sweet and candy-like, and while we enjoy them fresh nonstop, making a dessert out of them to serve with ice cream is one of the best seasonal treasures.

While I adore cobblers, crisp is really fantastic because of the TEXTURE!! The crunchy, crispy bits that top the warm syrupy fruit are the best flavor crunch explosion ever.

Now, there isn’t actually jelly in this crisp. The fruit cooks into a syrupy, almost jam-like mixture that mimics our jelly. You could add a few spoonfuls of your favorite jelly if you really wanted to! 

The crisp topping has peanut butter mixed in along with the butter and is so savory and delicious.

Then, you can add a little swirl of peanut butter on top to really take things over the edge!

While this is delicious on its own, the key is serving it warm with vanilla ice cream. 

Oh my gosh.

The peanut buttery crisp and the warm fruit all mixing into with melty vanilla ice cream? It’s seriously heaven in a dish. If you’re a fruit dessert person (you know the kind!) then you will freak over this.  (more…)

Of course, violins are not made small enough to express the woe that is ordering a sub-par drink at the kind of resort with palm trees, beaches, and a daily agenda of luxuriating as lazily as possible. But, have you ever ordered a good strawberry daiquiri at a bar? I have not. As neither the holiday weekend nor strawberry season are over yet, this seems as good a time as any to make it right.

Marche des Producteurs de Pays

This week France rather quietly announced that visitors from the U.S. and Canada were allowed to come to the country without any restrictions.

This week France rather quietly announced that visitors from the U.S. and Canada were allowed to come to the country without any restrictions. Things are still moving in the direction of getting back to normal, and while last year is still sort of a haze to me, I believe the markets in Paris remained open the entire time, operating under different conditions. Outdoor markets are extremely important in France and, of course, pre-dated les supermarchés which are now everywhere and have more agreeable hours – some are now even open on Sundays, which was controversial when it happened. But the outdoor markets take place six days a week in Paris, and in a country where holidays and vacations, and Sundays, are sacred, they remain open no matter what, even on Christmas, Easter, and New Year’s Day.

The outdoor markets are an integral part of French life and while in Paris there are over 100 marchés alimentaires (food markets), many of the stands are run by négotiants, or middle-men and women, who get their fruits, vegetables, meats, poultry, and fish from Rungis, the wholesale market outside of the city. There are many small farms in France but many stay, and sell, only in their regions due to their size. So I’m always happy when I see signs posted about an upcoming Marché des Producteurs de Pays, where you can buy things directly from the growers and producers, who bring their foods to the city.

Vegan Strawberry Frosting

If you’re a strawberry lover, then this strawberry frosting is a must-try! Made with creamy vegan butter, ripe strawberry purée, and organic powdered sugar, it’s a trifecta of flavor, texture, and sweetness!

We created this recipe specifically for a vegan gluten-free strawberry cake (recipe coming soon!), and the results were phenomenal! We wanted to use fresh strawberries (versus dried or cooked) to preserve the vibrant fruity profile. This truly does taste like summer bliss on a spoon.

buckwheat pancakes recipe

Ever tried buckwheat pancakes? Sure, they aren’t the prettiest pancakes around, but they make up for their humble appearance with wonderful flavor and texture. Buckwheat, a gluten-free relative of rhubarb, has a delicate, almost nutty flavor all its own.

Thanks to the buckwheat flour, these pancakes are naturally gluten free! These pancakes possess a light and airy consistency that quietly surrenders to the pressure of a fork and soaks up maple syrup like a sponge. I just love them.

buckwheat pancake ingredients

This recipe was originally adapted from a fun cookbook called Pancakes, by fellow food blogger Adrianna Adarme of A Cozy Kitchen. I visit Adrianna’s blog any time I need some creative recipe inspiration or a laugh, which is often.

It’s been eight years, so I’m revisiting this recipe to update the photos. I also tweaked the recipe a bit to work even better with 100 percent buckwheat flour. I added another egg and a smidge more flour. Hope you’ll give them a try soon!

simple strawberry smoothie recipe

You’re going to love this strawberry smoothie. This recipe is cold, creamy and satisfying, and the nutty strawberry flavor is truly crave-worthy.

In their most basic form, these strawberry smoothies require just four ingredients—frozen strawberries, frozen bananas, almond milk and almond butter.

This smoothie recipe tastes like a strawberry milkshake, and you can make it for breakfast! I’ll be sipping on these pink drinks all summer, and I hope the recipe becomes a staple in your home as well.

strawberry smoothie ingredients

If you ask me, smoothies should be super simple. I don’t want to pull a bunch of ingredients out of my fridge and pantry every morning just for a smoothie. I am not a morning person! Plus, these smoothies are easy to whip up in the afternoon or after dinner if you get a craving for a sweet treat.

You can change up the recipe by adding flax or oats for a nutrition boost, or a light drizzle of maple syrup to make them taste even more dessert-like. I’m plenty satisfied with the four-ingredient formula, though, and I think you will be, too!
