Strawberry Bruschetta and Peel


Grace and I decided to visit Kate in Edwardsville today. We went to the Farmer’s Market located by the courthouse. We purchased a few things…cabbage, tomatoes and zucchini. Then we decided to go to Peel’s for lunch. Holy Cow… the best Mac N Cheese I have ever had. Kate and Grace ordered it, but I had a bunch of bites! Here are photos of our meal. I highly recommend going there if you are ever in Edwardsville. I have never had a bad thing there…next time, Mac n Cheese and salad 🙂 Then we did a little shopping. It was a fun day.

Crème de Brie Pizza; Prosciutto ham, granny smith apples, brie cheese and fresh sage.

Fire Wings; Crushed red pepper, parmesan, grey salt, basil, roasted garlic and olive oil.

Chicken Parmesan Wood fired chicken, mozzarella, parmesan, marinara, served on ciabatta. That bowl is the Macaroni and Cheese 🙂

I had a party to attend tonight.  I decided to bring my Strawberry Bruschetta. The first time I had something like this was at a cooking class at The Design Studio. We were not given any measurements. She made it as an extra dish. After experimenting…this is what I came up with. I think it is pretty tasty and the bowls were empty when I came home.

Strawberry Bruschetta

  •  1 loaf of cinnamon  bread each piece cut into fourths into a triangle shape or Small Croissants sliced in half and then cut in half.
  • Melted butter
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon

Put triangles on jelly roll pan. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar and cinnamon. Bake in low temp oven until toasted. The first time we made these we used small croissants sliced in half and then cut them in half…brush with butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. The unavailability of croissants in Clinton Co… I usually  use the cinnamon bread. Both ways are very tasty.

  •  16 ozs strawberries washed and sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar
  • pepper

Add sugar to strawberries about an hour before serving. Let them set at room temp. Then about 15 minutes before serving add vinegar. Right before serving add a pinch of freshly ground pepper.


  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 8 oz heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 T honey
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Mix in a mixer until thick. Stir in honey and cinnamon. Refrigerate until cold.

When serving…a person should take the toast,  spread with cream mixture and spoon with strawberries on top. YUM!

Ingredient Line up...minus butter.

Add sugar to Strawberries, stir around and let sit for an hour.

Cut bread or croissants and put into a baking pan.

Brush with melted butter.

Sprinkle with some sugar (I did not use all that) and cinnamon; toss. Pop into oven to toast.

Beat the sour cream and heavy cream until thick. Add honey and cinnamon until mixed well. Refrigerate.

After an hour, add vinegar to the strawberries.

Before serving add pepper.


I line them all up together in order when serving.

Strawberry Bruschetta..YUM!
