Casey and I went to one of our favorite places for the weekend and we ate like it was our last weekend on Earth. One of the highlights was the  special dessert we ordered from Glen Ellen Star. And to think Casey wasn't sure if he wanted dessert!  I knew it would be the first recipe I'd recreate when I got home and here it is!

For this recipe, we take juicy strawberries and roast them.  If you've never roasted strawberries, you should definitely DO IT NOW. Then we top them with crumbled shortbread cookies when they're hot from the oven. It's the simplest/most rewarding dessert. It takes no effort at all! When it comes to Summertime eats, simple is always best. Let the strawberries SHINE.

Rice Krispie Balls with Sprinkles

Rice Krispie Balls with Sprinkles // shutterbean

Here's the thing about Rice Krispie Treats. I love them and I almost always have the ingredients in my pantry. The problem is.... I totally forget about them. The other problem is that I make a tray of them and keep cutting off pieces from the tray and then THEY ARE GONE. So here, I kept the batch on the smaller scale. Scooped them out with a once inch cookie scooper and sprinkled SPRINKLES on top to make things a little more fun. They're bite sized and delicious. Perhaps I should add this treat to my weekly meal prep?

Frozen mangoes go into the Vitamix blender with a bit of spicy ginger beer, honey and fresh lime zest.

Minutes later you have an incredible frozen treat. No need to freeze (unless you're making it ahead of time!). Just scoop out the sorbet from your  Vitamix and serve. I can't wait to play around with more flavors this summer! I'm thinking blueberry with a little bit of booze needs to happen soon.

Pea & Bacon Potato Hash

Let potato hash become your new obsession with this Bacon Pesto Pea Hash on Shutterbean.com !

Last year I was on a pizza kick. This year, I'm all about making really quick hashes.

I think it started when I had leftover roasted potatoes in one of my weekly Meal Preps. 

Bacon Pesto Potato Hash // shutterbean

What I like about hashes is that they're a great way to clean out your fridge. I had a cup of fresh peas and 4 strips of bacon to use up, so I threw this hash together before I left for my trip. I also added some pesto and crumbled goat cheese for good measure.

Oh yeah and red pepper flakes because I love spice. Talk about Easy Gourmet! Hopefully this makes you consider having cooked potatoes in your fridge every week. You're seriously a few minutes away from an incredible dinner...breakfast or lunch.
