by Keleigh May on May 28th, 2015

Strawberry Bread
  • 1 loaf french bread
  • 1 quart strawberries
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 4 tablespoons butter
Fresh Whipped Cream
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Slice bread into 1/2 inch slices. Place on a lined cookie sheet and toast at 350 for 10-15 minutes. (To dry the bread out)
Clean and slice the strawberries. 
Over medium heat, combine strawberries, sugar and water and bring to a boil. 
While your strawberries cook, butter each piece of bread.

Note: Those are the most adorable hands on the planet. 
Line a trifle (or deep dish) bowl with the buttered bread. 
Pour the hot strawberry liquid over the bread and repeat the process until you have used all the bread and strawberries. Let sit at room temperature until cool. Cover and refrigerate. 

To make whipped cream whip together cream, sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. 
Serve cold with fresh whipped cream.

A Treat From Flager's Palm Beach Mansion, Whitehall

My momma traveled with me to Palm Beach, Florida for the Garden of Life Blogger Summit. While she didn't attend any of the GoL events with me, we did spend our Saturday off together. And no trip to Palm Beach would be complete without a visit to the house of the man who started it all, Henry Flagler. After we toured the home (in a record breaking 45 minutes) we visited the gift shop, where I found this gem. I love vintage cookbooks, but I have never seen one geared towards kids. The rhymes in this are amazing-even 107 years later! And the dessert? Delicious! Kind of like if a banana pudding married a strawberry shortcake. While on your summer adventures keep an eye out for local or historical cookbooks. Hidden within the pages will be new culinary adventures for your whole family. Long after your trip is over you can still have culinary adventures because where there's a meal, there's a way!
