My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Strawberries Romanoff

Do you ever just hit the wrong key when you're getting your post ready? I really didn't mean to post the Bourbon Chocolate Cake yesterday. I was saving it to post with this recipe. Stuff happens! Anyway this is a beautiful Valentine's dessert with or without the Bourbon Chocolate Cake. The strawberries are looking good at the grocery.

Strawberries Romanoff
1 serving
print recipe

Use one scoop of a really good vanilla ice cream per person. the same amount of stiffly beaten whipped cream, 1 tablespoon of cointreau, 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar and 10 sweet ripe strawberries per person. Mix altogether and serve in a champagne glass. Garnish with a whole berry.


  1. Yummy! May I share another easy dessert? Get some disposable plastic champagne/dessert dishes and into each, add a generous amount of vanilla or peach ice cream. Top this with pureed fresh raspberries and then cover well and freeze. When needed for serving, top with crumbled macaroons and thinly sliced peaches.

  2. that's one of my favourite ways with strawberries too! delicious and simple dessert!

  3. It still sounds good today, Bev.:-)
