There isn't much that makes me smile more than good food. Today I'm sharing a super easy recipe for Fresh Strawberry Syrup. We're talking . . . two ingredients and a blender, easy.
Don't blink, or you'll miss the recipe. It's really easy and incredibly quick.
Fresh Strawberry Syrup
- 1 cup fresh strawberries (you can use frozen, but fresh is better)
- ½ cup white sugar
- High-powered blender (I use the Blendtec Total Blender.)
Ready for this? Wash the strawberries and plop them into the blender. (If you have a Blendtec, you don't have to cut them or anything.) Add the sugar. Blend until you have a deliciously red syrup. (For the Blendtec, just press the soup button.) Drizzle over your favorite ice cream, cheesecake, pancakes, waffles, french toast . . . you get the idea. Does it get any easier than that?
I received some free products from Kizmos, and my kiddos have been super excited to try them out. I decided to let them help me with the cooking. We took everything over to Grandma and Grandpa's and made them a five-star breakfast (at lunchtime)!
If you have little ones, then pizza cutters are not just for pizza! If you don't enjoy spending your entire breakfast cutting up pancakes, waffles, or french toast, just pull out the pizza cutter! Zip, zip, zip! Your cutting is done, and everyone gets to eat their breakfast while it's hot! Depending on the age of your kiddos, you might never have to cut again! Mine have all mastered the pizza cutter method. (Just do the opposite of my picture. Cut first. Add toppings second. It's a lot less mess.)
Something about cooking and serving with a literal smile makes the job just a little bit more fun!
