The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
Why do good things cost so much?

At Hick's Nursery they sell Robert Rothschild Farms stuffs. This is the best stuffs in the world. Seriously de-fucking-licious. The dips we bought last time and devoured:

Raspberry Honey Mustard Pretzel
Onion Blossom Horseradish Dip
and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Once a year when we visit Hick's we always load up on them and that was good because they cost a lot of money. And now I've found their website. Must. . . not. . . buy. . .

Last night I made fruit dessert cups because I had fresh raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. I also had ricotta. So, I whipped up some ricotta with a dash of almond and vanilla extract, some confectioners sugar (cuz I didn't want it to be gritty) and two teaspoons of tangelo infused simple sugar (from when I candied some tangelos).

Then I made separate batches of raspberry, blueberry and strawberry sauce. All the sauces were made of fresh berries, a squeeze or two of fresh lemon juice, about a quarter cup or so of sugar and a little bit of water.

Separated the ricotta mix into 4. In three I added some sauce (but no fruit) from the sauce. Put that in a dessert cup, covered that with the actual sauce with the fruit, put a dollop of un-saucey ricotta and then topped that with fresh fruit. Lookee--

Fruit Cups

I can't wait to do it again with strawberries from my garden. If the birds, raccoon and squirrels leave me any, that is.


Those look yummy!

They were yummy.

Those look FANTASTIC!
