Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries

This Italian custard dessert is fast and easy to make. It also can be dressed up however you like. If you're having several people over, this is perfect! I divided mine into ramekins, but you could put them in wine glasses, dessert cups, or even flip them over and slide them onto a plate like flan. SO many yummy options!

1 cup 2% milk
1 Tbs. unflavored powdered gelatin

3 cups whipping cream

1/3 cup honey

1 Tbs. sugar

pinch of salt
fresh berries

Place milk in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over. Don't mix. Let stand 3-5 minutes to soften gelatin. Pour mixture into a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Gently stir for ~5 minutes until gelatin dissolves. Be sure not to boil the milk. Add cream, honey, sugar, and salt. Stir 5-7 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and divide equally into 8 ramekins or 6 wine glasses. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours to set. Spoon berries on top of the panna cotta and serve.

If you can make jello, you can make panna cotta. If you want to fancy-up your dinner party or ladies luncheon, just whip these desserts up, and you'll be a hit with your friends and family. You could drizzle a little honey, caramel, or chocolate on top instead of or in addition to your berries. Make it your own and have fun eating!
