Strawberry Basil Gelato for Pass the Cook Book Club

Strawberry Basil Gelato from PasstheSushi.com

Here’s a little something from your childhood that grew up just in time to save your taste buds from another happy hour disappointment at the local Sonic. (Maybe that’s just my local Sonic). And it’s another month of the Pass the Cook Book Club. My little club is finding it’s feet – and I’m finding I need to be a little more organized. But in the end, sharing recipes together is a blast! I’m always curious to see what others are making (and nosy so that I pick something yummy). All the other group members are great and I am really enjoying reading […]

Simple Strawberry Margaritas for One

Strawberry Margaritas for One from PasstheSushi.com

This recipe was made for you and those fancy single serve blenders and those late night too long work days packed with more than enough stress. Or maybe a quick drink to serve with individual flair at a small get together… Or just add more of everything, make it by the pitcher and shove some straws in there. Maybe just one straw. (Can you tell what kind of day I’m having… ignoring that this posts at 8 or so in the morning).  As for those individual blenders  I love mine, and use it for everything. I make myself a spinach smoothie almost every […]

Fruity White Sangria Pops

fruity_wine_pop_0013a

You know that old saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say…”? Well I guess that doesn’t apply to the internet. Something about the perceived anonymity gives peoples brass enhancements and lures them into saying things they would never say in person. Something about the web makes people brazen and a wee bit ridiculous. I see a lot of my fellow blogging friends brought down by rude comments and either I just don’t write in a way that makes people want to comment or my spam filters are excellent at picking up on BS, but I don’t get that many nasty comments. I […]

Tequila Rose Popsicles

Tequila Rose Popsicles

This is a public service announcement. First and foremost, it’s my birthday month so we have to party down.  Which also means you should also all be actively trying to convince Handsome of all the awesome kitcheness I can’t miss out on – or anything else for that matter. Secondly, I wanted to show off my awesome new Recipe Index. Oh yeah, it pays to be your own designer some days. Course, if I wasn’t I would of had one a lot sooner that I would have to update manually (though I’m sure you wouldn’t have cared bout that).;) I […]

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Enter to Win a 170z bottle of Carapelli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil through May 22nd. Something about popsicles, they remind you of hot summer days, lounging in the grass barefoot, the music box sound of an ice cream truck long gone and the forgotten giggles of childhood. I have never been much for frozen treats, one or two bites and I’m satisfied (so anything on a stick melted long before I even came close to finishing). I recently saw a popsicle recipe book and was reminded of the endless flavor combinations possible with these frozen treats and it sparked […]

Strawberry Spiral Cake for Valentine’s Day

cake5

You asked for Valentine’s Dy posts, well here’s one for ya. Now try and tell me those layers don’t scream love? When I first saw this recipe in Rachael Ray magazine I printed it out right away (come on, I’m not the only one who instantly forgets what volume of what magazine I saw that recipe I had to try). I am not a fan of strawberries or dry cookies but the vertical layers blew my mind for a minute. The line was draw and I had to cross it. Don’t get any expectations people, this isn’t a thirty minute […]
