It wasn't that long ago that I was in the school of thought that I needed to try out a recipe before I dare serve it to guests, but as of lately I'm willing to risk trying a new recipe when guests come over. While I take my chances with trying something new, I also get the occasional splendid surprise of getting a recipe just right on the first shot! My initial crack at strawberry shortcake yesterday was the closing course to dinner for our special guests, Clint's grandma, aunts and parents.
While I was pretty good at not eating too many sweets during the week, I caved into eating two of these delightful treats! Thank you Martha Stewart's Cooking School cookbook for being my go-to weapon!
