All things strawberry ~continued

Joy's chocolate covered strawberries turned out so well! This recipe was so much easier than the one I used to use. (with a double broiler -ugh!)
Who knew there was a special shake and a twist involved? : )

I just had to try this recipe because it sounded so strange. And ya know, its not bad. But, don't try it on the same day that you make chocolate covered strawberries because what can compare to those! : ) It's a combination I would never of thought of in a million years. Has anyone had this before?

Strawberries and Balsamic vinegar

Fresh strawberries
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
1 c. powdered sugar

Place each of these in their own separate bowls and then dip your strawberry in vinegar and then sugar!

And this fruit dip is good. Healthier than the one that calls for dipping strawberries in marshmellow cream, that's for sure! ; )

Yogurt Fruit Dip

1 c. vanilla yogurt
1 can crushed pineapple drained
2 T. sugar
1/4 c. coconut

Mix, cool one hour or overnight. Great with fruit and cheese cubes.

I've had this spinach and strawberry salad before and I can't wait to make it! I think I'll just buy a similar dressing, though.

One thing I love to do with strawberries is put them on homemade waffles (made from fresh ground wheat!) Yum! I make those and pancakes with my wheat more than bread. Bread takes so long and if it doesn't turn out just perfect then I get all discouraged. : ) But today, one of the kids told me that they would rather eat my bread than cookies!!! Gracious! There's some incentive!!! I'll have to get back to bread making .

Last on the list of fun strawberry recipes is strawberry shortcake. And when I get in a M*rtha St*wart mood, I make her shortcake recipe. It's great but I don't get in that mood very often. ; ) If I want to make shortcake in a hurry, then its a yellow cake mix from a box that I make in a bundt cake pan. (which makes it look nicer!) Since I've seen My B*g Fat Gr**k Wedding too many times, I can't ever say "bundt cake" without thinking of that movie! LOL

I think that's it for 'all things strawberry!' : )

Looks delicious!

I am in the process of researching for a book I would like to write that addresses ten struggles that Christian women face. I would love to have your input as well.

Thank you for any help you can give me. All I need is the list of ten things as well as your age. Thank you!

I make pancakes with my wheat more than bread also.The recipe for the strawberries dipped in Balsamic vinegar and powdered sugar does not sound that appealing but I am going to try it. I will have my husband taste it first because he will eat anything.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding! It's BUNDT. Oh, buuuuh--n---T!

Anyway, the whole strawberries and vinegar thing is a little too weird for me. I probably wouldn't try to make it, but my husband would probably be intrigued to try something like that.

I love the yogurt recipe for fruit dip.
