Last weekend I finally made a recipe I've been wanting to make for a year: Food & Wine's strawberry crumb cake. The three-layered treat consists of a bottom of jam-like sweet strawberries, a middle of thick white cake, and a top of buttery crumbs. Alone it makes a devilishly delicious breakfast, but top it with a scoop of ice cream and you've got a dinner party dessert. It doesn't really matter when you serve it, all that matters is that you make this cake! It's a perfect thing to surprise your mom with, because after all, what mom doesn't love strawberries? She'll enjoy them even more in a cake baked by one of her loved ones. Want the recipe? Trust me, this one is a keeper! Read more.
Brunch is an ideal time to throw a bridal shower. The female-only event is normally hosted by a nonfamily member or the maid of honor.
