Great for Sunday Brunch or perhaps for Mother's day that's coming up
You will need
1. One package of round pot sticker wrappers. Use cookie cutter to make shape. I used a large star mold. 2. One 8 oz strawberry basket 3. Whipped cream and powder sugar (for dusting on top) 4. The little green leaves for decoration is chocolate mint from my garden. I like to take a pinch and eat them when i work in my garden. They really do taste like chocolate. I know weird.
1. Heat cooking oil on high, deep fried wrappers for no more than 30 seconds. Remove immediately and set aside to cool. 2. Slice strawberry into thin slices 3. Assemble
I helped my friend who had a low budget for a causal birthday gathering, one element she requested was "must be colorful and everyone would eat it". This was what i came up with. If you find the idea appealing/interesting to you, please feel free to use the idea By the way, it was a huge hit
Tapioca Dessert - What i did...
Cook tapioca according to instruction on the bag. Divide cooked tapioca into four portions. Add food coloring (i use Wilton gel food coloring in blue, red and green). Add granulated sugar to taste.
Spoon - I added 1 teaspoon Raspberry extract to the red tapioca. 1 teaspoon Blueberry extract to the blue tapioca. 1 teaspoon Lime extract to the green and lastly i left the original color plain.
Small glasses - I add fresh raspberry on top and colored rock sugar for fun and for those with a sweeter taste buds (for the little ones).
Small saucer/cup - These Cordon Bleu dishes added a touch of sophistication for the older generation (grandma/grandpa, aunts/uncles and etc.). These were prepared with fresh lemon juice with honey as the sweetener. Honey gives a smoother texture. Quite good!
Something for my kids today. We have been very naughty lately with all these chocolate, creamy things so thought I'd make them something healthier for them.
Dried mixed fruit (sultanas, currants, raisins and orange and lemon peel) mixed in by my eldest daughter to my usual sponge recipe [link] but with a little less sugar than i usually add. Then piped and topped with natural Greek yogurt with a sprinkle of more dried fruit on top.
Watermelon prepared four different ways for my BBQ dinner tonight.
From left to right, top row: Watermelon Margaritas and Watermelon Gazpacho.
From left to right, bottom row: Watermelon/Mango Jello (I used fresh lemon juice instead of water for that super refreshing taste, also cut grease when eat too much BBQ meats/burgers) and Chilled Watermelon Balls.
