Summer Strawberry Flan

Summer Strawberry Flan

A long hike and a visit to the farm market were the highlights of the past weekend and I am still in the hangover awe of the "climb". This is what I love heart about the place we live , 30 minutes east you reach NYC for non stop action and fun , and 30 minutes south you hit countrysides for serenity and peace. Yeah we are right in the middle of action and peace

Farm Fresh Strawberries for Flan

In the local Farm market here,the bowls and baskets are so full of berries and cherries. How lovely even to look at them!!! I think i am having a berry-cherry lust now ♥.

Strawberry flan

The regular readers out there , know by now , that we were not "anything sweet" crazy . I have a very few dessert recipes here too. But both of us are getting a twinge of sweet tooth here and there. Perhaps the apple pies from the farm markets or the NYC boutique shop specialities , are doing the trick.

For Summer Strawberry Flan

Anyways , I was wondering what to do with the remaining basket of strawberries from last weekend and then came across this recipe in Good Food Magazine ( i think its the current edition).To be honest I don't know why they call it flan though....

It was so easy to make and I am sure the ingredients are those always available in your pantry. A simply yummy berry treat for my berry lust ♥.

Beautiful photos with bountiful summer fruit! (I have made a spinach flan that I wondered why they called it a flan too:) This dessert is perfect for us...we feel the same way about sweets and desserts...and I usually cut back on the sugar the recipe calls for.
