Egg-Free Strawberry Curd

Curd is so simple but it seems like it takes forever to make. I love using this as an addition into homemade yogurt. I found by eliminating the egg (oh the horror!), the curd still thickens as the moisture evaporated. If you want to include the egg to be traditional, by all means add in an egg yolk when the strawberries are pureed.

Raspberry Mousse

Rating: Unrated
I make this raspberry mousse every year when raspberries are in season. You want to use ripe and sweet berries. Adjust sugar amount accordingly.

Cranberry Curd

Rating: Unrated
Delicious over scones, oatmeal, or yogurt, this cranberry curd is a seasonal spin on traditional lemon curd. If you prefer a smoother texture, press the cranberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve after blending in the food processor. This makes enough to fill a pint jar.

Real Strawberry Frosting

I wanted REAL strawberry frosting for my Real Strawberry Cupcakes and could not find an acceptable recipe. I wanted an intense strawberry taste without using an extract or gelatin.
