Strawberry Dessert Soup

At the beginning of the summer, Craig and I went to Rodizio Grill in Salt Lake for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The mere mention of the restaurant makes my mouth water! But anyway, they had this delicious strawberry soup that was to die for. As I was going through some old cooking magazines the other day, I happened upon this recipe and decided to try it out. It was a little different than the soup we had at Rodizio's, but its still super yummy. So, here's the recipe if you'd like to give it a try!


1 cup water, divided
1 cup apple juice
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
2 cups strawberry yogurt
2-3 drops red food coloring (optional)
1/4 cup sour cream (optional)
2 tbs milk (optional)

  1. In a large saucepan, combine 3/4 cup water, apple juice, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  2. Place strawberries and remaining water in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Pour into apple juice mixture. Stir in yogurt and food coloring. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until well chilled.
  3. Ladle soup into bowls.
  4. Optional: Combine sour cream and milk; spoon about 2 1/2 tsp into the center of each bowl. Using a toothpick, pull mixture out, forming a flower or design of your choice.

You Tube

Do any of you have fun finding random videos for your children on I've found so many from the hilarious to the disturbing. The Rhino Song, Elephant Song and some others are fun. Go look them up. Normally my son doesn't go for foreign language songs but this is the number one hit at my house this week:

Hope you enjoyed that.

Hair Clip Holder

I saw a post on Craft this afternoon about this adorable hair clip holder for girls. So for all my friends who have girls to dress up, hair to style, and love crafts: here's an adorable, and simple looking project. If I ever make one I'll write about my experience, but for now you'll just have to go to Nested to learn how to make this. The instructions look good. (But as per usual, I already have a different variation of the project in mind.)

Another Cute Play Kitchen

I just saw another cute DIY Play Kitchen on the Sutton Grace blog. I must admit, it had me wishing I had a play room to make one of these for. Seriously folks, I've seen so many Entertainment Center's cheap or free on Craigslist, this would not be an expensive project! Her cost $65.
