Strawberry Dump Cake

Strawberry Dump Cake

Strawberry Dump Cake: I call it this because it looks the part.

I’d say I love strawberry season, but I love too many seasons (corn, peach, clementine, fig, etc.) to show preference to any one in particular. If I start making statements such as, “I love blahblah season!” you readers will start to think, “Yeah, okay. And every other blahblah season too, apparently. Stop being so redundant, Dana. You love everything. We get it.”

See, at least I’m self-aware.

This recipe originates (in my lifetime) from my Grandmother. She’s the one who introduced it to me, so that’s all that matters. It’s hers – she gets all the cred. In French, we called this dessert La Pouding Aux Fraises. I’ve always loved it because it’s simple and it tastes purely of cake and strawberries as opposed to cake and strawberries drowned in a buttload of unnecessary icing or syrup. My grandmother’s desserts were very charming all while being no frills. Gosh, I really do miss her!

This strawberry dump cake only calls for eight ingredients: strawberries, coconut oil, flour, sugar, baking powder, an egg, milk, and a pinch of salt. This was made in a baking dish that measured 8′ in length x 6′ in width x 2′ in depth; anything in that proximity of size will work.

Molasses and Stout Grilled Chicken Drumsticks

I remember a day when molasses used to solely remind me of my Grandmother. I don’t mean that in a bad way like how mothballs remind us of old folks – I mean it in a nice and nostalgic way. For dessert once in a while, my Grandmother used to tear up pieces of bread for me…

Zucchini Noodles in Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce

Zucchini noodles are my new favourite thing, and zucchini noodles in garlic parmesan cream sauce is some kind of heaven. Remember when people were trying to sell the idea that eating spaghetti squash was “just like eating actual spaghetti”? Don’t get me wrong, spaghetti squash is delicious – but in no way, shape or form is it…
