Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! This weekend's Sweet Stuff Sunday's desert is Balsamic Strawberries with Ricotta Cream from Ellie Krieger. I love most everything I've tried of Ellie Krieger's recipes. She does a great job creating her recipes: she keeps them pretty healthy and pretty yummy :D She was on the Cooking Channel, although I'm not sure if she is currently (we don't have cable). She also has a few cookbooks, I believe.
Click on the link for the full instructions, but the recipe calls for: Part-skim Ricotta cheese, honey, strawberries, balsamic vinegar, and sugar. It's super easy to make.
I've made this recipe a few times for The Hubs and me and some of our guests. We've gotten pretty positive response from it, but if you are a person who is weird on textures, I'd skip it. Because it's made with ricotta, it's a little on the gritty side. The Balsamic Strawberries, are very yummy, though. I could eat a whole bowl of them! My Mother-In-Law made a great suggestion that the strawberries might be good over marscapone in place of the riccotta. That was a great idea and would definitely give this dish a smoother texture.
Hope you enjoyed! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
