Irresistible Craving!


Late this afternoon I realized I was experiencing an irresistible craving!

One that just would not go away.

You know the kind I mean. You crave it so bad it just won’t stay out of your mind!

So here’s what I’m craving, up close and glorious!




I love strawberry shortcake! The combination of freshly baked cake, with lusciously sweet andΒ succulent strawberries, topped off with a huge dollop of fluffy whipped cream – Yummmmmm! Had to share my craving.

Just a few months away from Strawberry season! Can hardly wait. Is there a food you’re craving right now?

  1. I am craving chocolate yogurt! It’s my way of eating chocolate without feeling too guilty. Unfortunately, I already ate two small pieces of leftover crumb cake so I need to pass on the yogurt until tomorrow.

  2. This looks yummy, Penny! I hope you get to satisfy it soon! Aside from the normal chocolate craving, I love homemade carrot cake, but I don’t indulge often. You can understand why…cake and cream cheese frosting, yikes! Anyway, since my birthday is coming up, I’ll make it a request for someone to make one for me, either the kids or my hubby (probably the kids)! πŸ™‚

  3. ahhh it’s almost time for farmer’s markets here in the Pacific Northwest… good stuff right from nature πŸ™‚ and strawberry shortcake is like my all time favorite dessert too xxxooo

  4. I could just eat those strawberries and lick the monitor to get all the cream, lovely. I don’t have many cravings, and I try to ignore them, during pregnancy I was eating cheese like a monster. Sometimes when you pass a bakers shop you get a craving because it looks good but I think that is just lust… πŸ™‚ I love fruit and veg and eat as much as I can. I am careful with too many sweet things, but still treat myself once in a while.

    • It is good to treat ourselves now and then Ute and I love the idea of the phrase “lusting after the flavors of food”. Something just so well sensually alive and wonderful about the thought of it! lol, πŸ™‚

  5. personal foible. I don’t like cream with strawberries. They respond best to coarsely ground black pepper and a squeeze of lemon or a slug of vodka from the freezer. No sugar, and no cream. Maybe it’s just me.. I prefer raspberries anyway. Same applies though. Hold the cream.

    • We all have different tastes, a good thing, makes us unique I think. I would rather eat strawberries,raspberries (another big yum), blackberries,cherries,apples,plums (all indigenous to where I live) straight off the vine or tree limb. Fruit tastes best – fresh from nature! πŸ™‚ Although I am intrigued by the “coarsely ground black paper and a squeeze of lemon or slug of vodka from the freezer” idea. Fascinating! πŸ™‚

        • I’ll try it, being curious and I should’ve figured it’d be from Scotland! Very rugged and tough to live in Scotland! I meant that in a really nice way too! I have very dear friends in Scotland! πŸ™‚

  6. I crave…Chinese food….anything Chinese, now I’m hungry and shall go disappointed as pay day is not for a week and a half…that classifies as a subtle hint if you’re feeling a little flushed…

  7. I am craving my homemade baked potato soup, all cheesy with bacon and green onions on top and a big fresh salad with crusty bread. For dessert I WANT STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE! I am going to market today to buy angel food cake, reddi whip and frozen strawberries to top off that soup I am going to make. see what you did Penny? that 6 pounds I lost are creeping back on …LOL

    • I love strawberries Ivonne. When they are in season I include them in my daily protein smoothies. So yesterday while I was making a frozen bananas,blue berry, strawberry one I started thinking about fresh strawberries and bingo – strawberry shortcake popped into my head (there you go the full “backstory” lol)! πŸ™‚

  8. Yum, that looks so good! Right now though, I could really go a big bowl of Satay chicken with Basmati rice. Or some vanilla ice cream with Hershey’s chocolate syrup and marshmallows πŸ™‚

  9. I hope you don’t have to wait too long to get your strawberries! Don’t you wish your body would crave things that are easily obtained?

    It’s just hit Autumn here in New Zealand and I’m craving slow cooked meats and simmering soups.

    • I think I’m hungry, because slow cooked meats and simmering soups sounds yummy to me too. I really enjoy adding the various spices and veggies (being really creative here) and then those wonderful aroma’s begin and … I think I’ll go eat dinner now!
