My camera officially died so I'm shopping for a new one. Sadly, I just bought that camera in August so if I had been smart and saved the receipt, the warranty would still be in effect. However, I never remember to save receipts. Gosh darn it.
Anyhow, I'm carefully researching various cameras before I buy a new one so if you have a camera you love, leave me a comment about it - I need all the input I can get. :)
Cinco de Mayo is coming up and since my husband has Hispanic ancestors, I thought I would share a dessert I came up with recently that would be fabulous for a Cinco de Mayo party.
Or if you're like me and so ethnically white that you're practically albino and don't have anybody to celebrate Hispanic holidays with, this is a great light and refreshing Spring dessert.
Cinco de Mayo Blackberry Tortilla Wraps (printable recipe)
1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. spanish vanilla extract
1/4 - 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 pint blackberries
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
4 raw tortillas (Tortilla Land makes the best ones and are available at Costco and Walmart)
2 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
In a large bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Then beat in vanilla and powdered sugar until just combined.
Combine blackberries and 1 tbsp. granulated sugar. Set aside. Brush butter over both sides of each tortilla. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon together; sprinkle onto each tortilla.
In a skillet heated to medium heat, place the tortillas, one at a time. Allow the tortilla to toast up and get golden brown, flip and cook until golden brown again. While the tortillas are still warm, spoon a 1/4 of the blackberries into the center, roll up. Top with the whipped cream and enjoy!
