Welcome to my collection of recipes and cooking related ramblings. Please don't expect culinary perfection during your time here... for I am a frustrated foodie with very little patience and more than a tendency for often unnecessary creativity in the kitchen. I have a hard time following instructions (Never fear, I can read, I just don't like being told what to do), so cooking is a good exercise in discipline for me. Luckily I have a willing husband to taste test these creations, good and bad, so I don't have to suffer alone in my experimentations.  

If you dare - learn along with me as I try out recipes, tweak them to my liking, learn what NOT to do and share all the mundane details with you! Let's do this...

Summery strawberry stacks - aren't they pretty?

The thermometer is creeping up - and summer is on its way folks. Makes my mouth water for luscious fruity desserts dolloped with creamy creamy cream.  Sounds like summer to me. This little parfait perfection uses versatile, yet often forgotten, wonton wrappers as a crunchy sweetened crust.

You can use other fruits if you want - blackberries and peaches, blueberries and raspberries or maybe kiwi and mandarin orange slices... use your imagination. I might also suggest using vanilla pudding in a layer or two in place of the whipped cream. You know, because you can.

Summery Strawberry Stacks

INGREDIENTS: Serves 4

  • 16 wonton wrappers
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large banana, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup whipped cream or whipped topping
  • 20 strawberries, cleaned and thinly sliced

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a large cooking sheet with cooking spray. Lay the wonton wrappers on the prepared sheet in a single layer. Lightly spray the tops with cooking spray. Sprinkle sugar evenly over the wrappers. Cook in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven.

To assemble, place four of the wonton wrappers on a serving plate or on individual dessert dishes. Top each wonton with 2 tablespoons of the whipped cream, followed by 3-4 banana slices and 1-2 sliced strawberries. Top with a second wonton wrapper. Repeat layer with 2 tablespoons whipped cream, bananas and strawberries. Top with the remaining wonton wrappers, whipped cream and a strawberry. Serve immediately
