Strawberry Crumb Cake

by Meghann on March 22, 2011

Question.

Is it possible to bake without making a mess?

Or is it just me? ;)

At least the mess was well deserved.

Hello, Beautiful!

A commenter had recommended this Strawberry Crumb Cake Recipe from YumSugar yesterday and – wow- I’m so glad she did.

The crumb cake was more of an upside down strawberry cake. The strawberries swam in thick strawberry syrup on the bottom and the cake baked thick and evenly on the top.

I took liberty in halving the recipe and made some minor changes here and there. Luckily my ‘minor changes’ worked (that never happens for me!) and the piece I enjoyed wasn’t just edible – it was delicious!

So. Good.

I highly recommend anyone with a surplus of strawberries, like myself, to try this recipe right now. And don’t worry if you don’t have buttermilk – vanilla yogurt worked just fine! ;)

The cake served as dessert for the evening and a plate of fish, plantains, and yucca made up my dinner.

The Kinglip Fillets were on sale at Publix this week. It’s a mild flavored, white fish that I seasoned with a Goya seasoning mix and pan fried on the stove top.

I gave the meal a spanish flair by steaming yucca on the side

And pan frying plantains.

All that was missing was some Cuban bread and black beans.

The yucca + cake left my belly really full.

And my head sleepy.

Must. Keep. Eyes. Open.

Did everyone check out my latest episode of Meals & Miles on IzonOrlando.com ?

I had to cover my eyes for some parts, but I thought the team did an awesome job with editing!! It made me excited to film at another awesome location tomorrow. Can’t wait!

Never judge a book by its cover

Especially when that cover is in the ‘not so nice’ area of town with its share of run down property and bums. And you drive by that cover a couple of times because you really have no idea what you’re looking for and GPS just keeps tell you to go back because you missed it. more »

Double the Fun

March 22, 2011

Double the Smoothie. Double the Fun. Well, double the fun because the second smoothie belonged to my friend Megan. Megan has never had a smoothie in a bowl before! I think she liked it. Megan headed to my neck of the woods this morning for a casual 4 miler around my neighborhood. We kept it more »
