Fruit Pudding – Strawberries and Pecans (Daily Cooking)

When it’s strawberry season, I always make a strawberry pudding.

The pecans, with their pronounced taste, enhance marvelously the sweetness of the ripe and juicy strawberries. My version of this popular fruit pudding contains much less sugar and much less fat than what is usually served. But it’s equally delicious. When you have to control your sugar or fat intake, eating desserts becomes difficult. This fruit pudding—along with all the puddings in my cookbook—makes it possible to indulge. I myself find it perfectly safe to eat a portion for an afternoon or a night snack. If I couple it with a cup of peppermint tea (which lower the speed of carb absorption), it’s even better. I would like to add that my recipes are without eggs and without butter.

The recipe is in my Daily Cooking – Puddings cookbook. It’s available on Amazon. There is also a French version La cuisine au quotidien – Les poudings.

To make this pudding, I use the special technique I have developed over the years, using only one bowl. One of my goal in the kitchen is to have the least possible amount of dirty dishes. 😉 I explain everything in my cookbooks (with multiple pictures).

Strawberry Bookmark

This post really represent summer. Strong sun. Strawberries. Lavender. Summer reading. The joy of reading next to a bush of lavender in full bloom, with a bowl of sweet and perfectly ripe strawberries. From time to time, passing a hand through the flowers to gather their lovely smell. Reading a few chapters, day dreaming, reading some more. Placing a beautiful bookmark between the pages.

I finished this bookmark last year using the cross stitch and following a pattern from a magazine. I had started it two years before. It was a work of patience, making tiny crosses with two threads, trying to follow the many color changes in such a dense pattern. But one day, it was done. I was happy to have completed it and I really love how it turned out.
