Angel food cake has previously been filed away in my brain under “too intimidating”, along with croissants and bagels. I never even thought about attempting it. Which is crazy, because I have baked a lot of super tricky things and most of the time everything turns out wonderfully. Still, angel food seemed elusive.
Until recently, when I found myself with a ridiculous amount of egg whites in my fridge. We’re talking, two dozen at least. Thanks to pudding and ice creams, they’ve been building up. And knowing enough about angel food cake to know that they require a ridiculous amount of egg whites, I gave in and let it happen.
I found this recipe for Strawberry-Yogurt Brulée in this month’s issue of Fine Cooking, which I had purchased for in-flight reading on my way to BlogHer Food in Austin. Only, my one year-old kept me too busy to even crack it open. I casually flipped through it one evening last week and got really excited when I found this recipe.
Only three ingredients, a quick assembly, and it works for either breakfast or dessert? This is my kind of treat.
And it’s just as delightful as you can imagine. Underneath the crunchy layer of caramelized sugar we all associate with creme bruleé is a simple mixture of yogurt and fresh strawberries. It never ceases to amaze me how simple ingredients and combinations can be transformed with a little creativity.

As I mentioned in my BlogHer Food recap, I’m switching things up. In addition to my traditional recipe posts, I also want to share fun stuff like my summer bucket list. When coming up with this list I didn’t intend for it to be all about food, but it should come as no surprise that food is not ever very far from my mind.
I spent several days last week in Austin, Texas with fellow bloggers at the BlogHer Food conference. We talked shop, ate a lot of great food, enjoyed more than a few margaritas, and spent time with old and new friends alike.
I brought my boys along and we turned the trip into a mini vacation. With my free time before the conference started we explored a little bit of Austin and it didn’t take long for me to fall in love and think ahead to when we can return.
My family and I are back from a long weekend in Austin, Texas where I attended this year’s BlogHer Food conference. It was a blast and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. But first up, these incredible margherita pizza wheels deserve their day in the sun.
There’s nothing incredibly fancy or difficult here, just a new way to eat an old favorite. I was inspired when I saw these pepperoni pizza wheels by Spoon Fork Bacon and I knew I had to give them my own spin with a little tomato, basil, and mozzarella.
