I can’t wait to share this Strawberry Crumb Bars recipe with you guys! I made them to take to a party tonight, and oh my goodness, guys! Sooo yummy. Think they’ll notice I brought a dish minus a piece? Haha!
Gosh, it seems like I’m always taking food to parties, BBQ’s, or potlucks (and usually with pretty much NO notice!). And I’m not a super fancy chef or anything, so I never have funky ingredients on hand that half my cookbooks call for (tarragon? still have no idea what that is!) But I love to cook, and I love to make impressive things to take along with me to parties (hello Rainbow Jello). So I was so excited to get my hands on this cookbook written by my friend, Allison (Cupcake Diaries Blog). It’s called â€œSun and Sizzle: Grills to Greens and Everything in Between” and it’s filled with delicious recipes for Summer that use real, common ingredients that I actually have in my cupboard.
This cookbook has recipes for everything you’ll want to cook this Summer- steaks, shrimp, fruity drinks, salads, and yes- desserts. I had a pack of strawberries sitting in my fridge begging to made into a dessert, so I was excited to find this strawberry crumb bars recipe. And I think my strawberries were so happy to be included.
Come on guys, doesn’t that look delicious! This is before I put the glaze on top, and I was seriously tempted to skip the glaze all together because it looked so pretty in the dish like this.
But then I added the glaze and all was well in the world- SO delicious! My kids were begging for a piece before I took it to the party and “everybody eats the whole thing!”… and I’m thinking everyone is going to love these strawberry crumb bars!
Make sure to check out Allison’s cookbook blog tour. You can see more recipes from the Sun and Sizzle cookbook, along with reviews from other bloggers.
It looks and sounds sooo good. I’ve gotten it written down so I can try it. I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!
