A Delightful New Taste

Acclaimed Regency and contemporary suspense author Vonnie Hughes is in the kitchen with her wonderful dessert that serves 4 people and has only 3 ingredients.

Strawberry Marshmallow Delight

1 punnet (or carton) of strawberries
1 packet of small marshmallows
4 oz of thick whipped cream flavored with a couple of drops of vanilla

Wash and hull the strawberries. Sort into four equal quantities

Place in glass dishes like parfait dishes.

Very carefully melt 16-18 marshmallows and cool slightly.

Fold the whipped cream into the marshmallow mix and pour it all over the strawberries.

Easy, cheap, and quick.

Here's a peek into one of my historical romance books.

War brings together two injured people who are desperate to return home - at any cost.

Both of them are scarred by war; she because of the shattered men she nurses; he because of the loss of friends and the horrors he must endure daily.

Colwyn Hetherington has a chance to put it all behind him and return to England. Juliana Colebrook desperately wants to go to England to seek out her relatives. They take an almighty chance and travel together, setting in train a series of events that neither could have anticipated.

Vonnie Hughes is a New Zealander living in Australia. She loves animals and jogging. Vonnie writes Regencies and romantic suspense novels along with short stories.

All of Vonnie’s books are available on Amazon.

  1. Hey, thanks for having me here, Sloane. That dessert is the easiest one in the world.

    1. You're welcome, Vonnie. Love the dessert and adore your writing, especially your suspense books.:)

  2. Sinful but I'm sure delicious. I'm going to steal this one for quick dessert. Good luck with your mystery. Sounds great.

  3. Oh, yum, Vonnie! What a perfect dessert for the summer here in the northern hemisphere! Sure to keep us cool. Salute!

  4. Sounds like a great summer treat! I like the story excerpt, since I've always found hedge mazes creepy. I don't know if it's the influence of "The Shining" or just that it's scary to think I might not be able to find my way out if someone was chasing me.

  5. Alyssa, that sounds like the basis for good, convoluted plot - a maze. Hmm.
