A Trifle Impressed

A Teaspoon of Home

This is my favorite recipe if I want to make an impression. You know what I’m talking about…right? Let me share with you the power of this berry trifle.

A Teaspoon of Home

While my husband and I were just “friends” like both super interested in the other, but too soon to really be more then friends. I was invited to attend a family 4th of July BBQ. Just note that on the 3rd of July at another family party after knowing each other for 12 whole days I was introduced as his friend, Emily. Well at the BBQ on the 4th I was no longer just his friend, I was promoted to “girlfriend” and will blame the trifle.A Teaspoon of Home

It is amazing how timing works because we had both been single for 12 years. That alone is a feat in and of itself, especially here in Utah, but to this day we are still in awe that our paths never crossed until then.

We were both equally smitten with the other quite quickly. He knew I was the one on day 5. I took a lot longer (8 whole days)! For me this trifle represents more than a delicious English treat but a milestone in our romance novel.

We were married 3 months later and let me just tell you that he is the sweetest thing to ever come into my life. I’m the luckiest girl in the whole world to have him by my side for eternity. I’m still a trifle impressed.

The best part of these is that you can change the frosting or sprinkles to go with any season or theme you are preparing them for. My son loves them! He calls them cake cakes.

They are the very best! [Read more…]
