We found this recipe for you to try and it would be a great idea to do with the kids for Easter. Scandinavian Almond Strawberry Shortcake Bites!

Fresh Strawberries, rinsed
1 pound cake
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup slivered almonds, ...toasted, chopped fine or ground up in food processor
Grated zest of 1 orange
1 to 2 tablespoons half-and-half
Mint leaves or thyme blossoms, for garnish
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with almonds and orange zest. Add half-and-half to thin the mixture a bit for easier piping. Spoon into a pastry bag with a number 10 metal tip, or a plastic zip-top bag with one corner snipped off.

With a sharp paring knife, slice stem end away from strawberries, creating a flat base. With flat side on work surface, cut 4 slits into tip of each berry, without going all the way through. Gently push a cube of cake into the center of each cut berry. Pipe cream cheese mixture over the top to cover the cake. Garnish with mint leaves or thyme blossoms.





Here are some tips;

*These Bites can be prepared early in the day you will be serving them. This will allow for the cake to absorb some strawberry juice. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.

*Toast slivered almonds in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 5 minutes. Cool completely before chopping or grinding in the food processor.

Hello Mary~Salmon is a staple here in the PNW. My hubby is our chef when it comes to cionokg salmon, he has created his own recipe with an Asian influence. He has converted many of those who'd swear salmon wasn't something they liked to eat. I love the versatility of having leftovers to add to a simple salad or many other dishes not to mention the health benefits.Sweet wishes,Sara http://wniubgomkbq.com [url=http://pqakvzll.com]pqakvzll[/url] [link=http://nglllr.com]nglllr[/link]

Another important aspect of an auto insurance QuotesChimp is the part that protects the value of your vehicle. This part of the contract is called collision coverage and its cost is about one-third of the total cost of the policy.
