Time for a Tuesdays with Dorie rewind -- Tender Shortcakes! This was our pick back in June thanks to Cathy at Tortefeasor, you can find the delicious recipe here at Cathy's site.
We love strawberry shortcakes at our house, and while they are nice in the summer with some simple macerated berries, they are also a great winter treat with some warm cooked strawberry sauce from frozen berries (or fresh if you can find decent ones this time of the year). Dorie's shortcake recipe was delicious, perfectly tender and a touch crumbly, just perfect for soaking up all of those yummy berry juices.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful New Year! I have a blogging resolution to be a little more consistent since I've really missed keeping up with everyone these past couple of months. See you soon :)

I haven't posted in way too long, sorry! Just a quick (sorry no photo) check-in post for TWD here for our pick of the week, Cardamom Crumb Cake, picked for us to try by Jill of Jill’s Blog -- thank you Jill! See you all next week with a TWD rewind.
We loved this cake, just no time to photograph it before the last slice was gobbled up. This is a new favorite crumb cake, just perfect for breakfast with some tea. I will be making it again soon and will try to get a picture of it before it disappears. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and I can't wait to get back to blogging as soon as the holiday rush subsides.
Instead of a crumb cake photo here are my three little sweeties, visiting Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Christmas tree farm earlier this month. Merry Christmas from my family to yours :)
