I like to think outside of the box! The brownie box! I believe them when they say “Go Big OR Go Home”! So I KICKED up these Valentine Raspberry Brownies by about 100 notches! How you ask? Well…I added a delicious Raspberry filling, White Chocolate Chips, Toasted Almonds, a heaping scoop of Raspberry Cheesecake Gelato, Dark Chocolate Syrup, and Fresh Raspberry Sauce. I think that’s “BIG” enough. What do ya’ll think?
Lemon! One simple word, and your mouth begins to anticipate a flavor explosion! I love all things lemon! The zing of tartness, the smell of fresh grated lemon zest, and the plump bright beautiful yellows! Sigh…I always have and… I expect that I always will. Unless something drastic happens like a tastebudectomy!?? YIKES! (Yes! I know that isn’t a real word! It’s the beginning of the week. I’m being creative!) I have a feeling it is universal! This love of lemon. There are only 4.5 million flavors of lemonade, (o.k. maybe a slight exaggeration!), so I think I’m standing on some solid “lemony” ground here!
In my family growing up, strawberry shortcake was not a dessert! Say What?! You read that right! Grandpa Howard insisted that strawberry shortcake was, in fact, the main course! (There’s a man after my own heart!) So, if you happened to come on a night strawberry shortcake was being served, you best not be looking for chicken and potatoes, because there was none to be had!
