Ms. Hazel, with her post: To the suburbs we go, on her blog HazelCeej.

Sinus-clearing seafood sour soup, that's what Ms. Hazel called it. I really wish I had one of those right now! Yes, it's that time of year again: sniffles time. But really, I think that that soup is perfect any time of the year (or day!) for me. Click on the shot to see more of Ms. Hazel's post!

My post: Home-made Strawberry Topping

My son wanted to make (and eat, lol) cheesecake (the no-bake kind) but we didn't have any ready-made (in other words, CANNED) toppings. So, we made our own!


  • Strawberries (frozen, or fresh)
  • sugar, cinnamon
  • vanilla, water
  • butter (totally optional; I just felt like adding it)


  • Place fresh/frozen fruits in pot. Add a bit of water.
  • Drizzle sugar, some ground cinnamon, vanilla, and butter.
  • Simmer and mix every now and then until fruits are soft and liquid gets thick.
  • Add some more water if needed.
  • Remove from fire once satisfied with the consistency.
  • Let cool completely before adding to your cheesecake.
  • Indulge!

I think our strawberry topping needed more sugar (compared to the canned version), but I really didn't mind. I liked it. It tasted more ... real. :P

Hi Maiylah :)
We definitely thought a like, as I also make strawberry cake :)
I always frozen ones but we have now fresh strawberries so I used them

Thanks for the party and have a good weekend :)

Yummy! making your own toppings is best because you can control the sweetness :)

Oh there's my soup :) Thanks for the feature, Maiylah. Cinnamon and strawberries make a fabulous combination as topping. Your creation just looks divine.

These both look delicious. I am quite partial to strawberries, so the topping is definitely one to try...
Thanks for hosting Maiylah.
