When I did a poll over on Insta Stories to see whether I should make a honey mustard or a ranch trail mix, honey mustard ended up winning. But it won by just the narrowest of margins. So I felt like I really needed to make a ranch version as well.
I never get enough of the sweet spicy combo, and it’s one of my favorite things about so many Asian inspired meals. Hot, Sour, Salty, and Sweet with Spice added in are flavors that are fun to mix and match. I never really thought too much about it, until I read all about it in a cookbook, (called of course Hot, Sour, Salty, and Sweet). The authors talk all about how different dishes from every Asian country fall into these categories.
I grew up eating blueberry pancakes as a special ‘weekend treat’ type of breakfast. Most of the time they were actually huckleberry pancakes since they grow here in Montana. They have a indescribably wild and wonderful flavor since you have to forage them straight from the forest. But a close second is wild blueberries if you can find them in the freezer section at your grocery store.
This Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake is also grain free and paleo friendly. It’s a healthier version of the classic, but the flavor and texture as still spot on!
I’ve been on a bit of a roll lately with classic treats I loved from childhood. I started a few weeks back with The Ultimate Paleo Lemon Bars, then it was these Blueberry Muffins, and now today we’re on to Strawberry Shortcake.
