A strawberry daiquiri was the first cocktail I ever tried. I was vacationing in Saint Thomas recklessly laying on the beach without sun block (ah to be 21 again) and snorkeling the clear blue waters of the U.S. Virgin Islands. At the end of each full day of water adventure, I treated myself to one of the most refreshing blended cocktails out there.
Just like its cocktail version, these strawberry daiquiri cupcakes combine strawberries, sugar, lime and rum to make a sweet treat that can be enjoyed any time of day. Roasting the strawberries ahead of time intensifies not only their sweet flavor but also their beautiful red color eliminating the need for any artificial coloring or additives.
This recipe yields 14 booze infused cupcakes topped with a heaping mound of vanilla whipped cream.
Btw, this recipe can also be found in the upcoming reprint of my first cookbook Beach House Baking. You can pre-order it on Amazon here!
I have some great news. My first cookbook, Beach House Baking, has been queued up for a reprint!
I’ve been asked to create 10 delicious new recipes for the reprint to make it even bigger, badder and beachier!
These buttery almond squares have definitely made the cut, and I’m excited for all of you to try them.
They are quite easy to make and quick to bake. They keep well in an airtight container stored in the refrigerator but trust me, they won’t last very long because it’s hard to stop eating them.
While the cake bakes, you cook a butter almond sauce over the stove until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture thickens. The sauce is then poured over the warm, just-baked cake and broiled until the almond topping caramelizes to perfection.
When the cake has cooled, cut it into squares and enjoy!
Just a heads up that you can now pre-order my second cookbook Beach House Brunch on Amazon. Just click here to get to Amazon.
And….Rumor is that even though its official release is June 21, Amazon is shipping orders ahead of schedule 🙂
I’m super excited about this cookbook. I love the photographs that Chau and Brent took and there are 100 recipes for beverages, egg dishes, salads, casseroles, pastries and of course desserts that you will love.
If you’re like me, you’ve made a resolution to eat healthier this year. Who knows how long that will last, but for the moment I’m going to try.
Packed with protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, kale is a superfood that should be a staple in your diet. It’s a budget friendly vegetable, too. For suppers, I like to saute kale as it’s quick to prepare and it pairs well with many different proteins. In addition to garlic, salt and pepper, I like to season kale with dried basil which pairs really well with the green, leafy vegetable. Try out my recipe and you’ll see!
