Just desserts, and then some...

by - Thursday, February 13, 2014

It's 3 o'clock and I'm getting the munchies right now...
Of course, look at what I am doing! Nonchalantly perusing my Pinterest To sweeten board in search of some delightful strawberry indulgences, picture after pretty picture, these ideas have my stomach gurgling and my mouth watering! With tomorrow being Valentine's Day, why shouldn't we enjoy something sweet and even savory, especially after being cooped up indoors watching snow and ice pile up outside.
Sifting through this eye-candy, here are some truly pretty, (somewhat) easy and tasty tidbits to sink your teeth into. Hopefully you have the ingredients on hand to try one... or two. Have a taste...

From La Mia Vita Dolce, this dessert is a bit involved, but what a presentation! The mini Strawberry-Yogurt Mousse Cakes have everything all in one - chocolate, strawberries and yogurt on an almond crust.

French cookies with strawberries and Nutella... They had me with Nutella. These are so very pretty too! From Moje Wypieke. (Translate the page with Google Translate.)

What could be simpler than Chocolate Covered Banana Split Bites? Cut, stack, spear and dip! From Food Doodles.

The Thread Affect got very creative with a twist on "dessert nachos" with their Fruit Salsa and Baked Cinnamon Chips.

This indulgent Dark Chocolate, Strawberry and Mint Swiss Roll from Apron and Sneakers looks like the ultimate dessert with strawberries, cream, and Belgian chocolate.

Roasted Strawberry and Goat Cheese Crostini from Our Little Nest is a little different blend for the flavor-loving foodie. If you prefer to skip the goat cheese, substitute it with some French brie.

Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits are quick and simple for a lighter sweet snack from Dessert for Two.

And last but not least, why not try some Savory Strawberry Salsa from Traditional Foods. With a dash of balsamic, this salsa is great over a mixed green salad or paired with some grilled chicken. The choice is yours!
Okay, so what's in the fridge? Let me get down to the kitchen and check out the strawberry status. After all, no matter what treat we try, strawberries in the mix will brighten a palette of just desserts and then some... xoxo-Sonya
