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.

Vonnie Hughes is a multi-published author in both Regency books and contemporary suspense. She loves the intricacies of the social rules of the Regency period and the far-ranging consequences of the Napoleonic Code. And with suspense she has free rein to explore forensic matters and the strong convolutions of the human mind. Like many writers, some days she hates the whole process, but somehow she just cannot let it go.

All of Vonnie’s books are available on Amazon.

Vonnie was born in New Zealand, but she and her husband now live happily in Australia. If you visit Hamilton Gardens in New Zealand be sure to stroll through the Japanese Garden. These is a bronze plaque engraved with a haiku describing the peacefulness of that environment. The poem was written by Vonnie.

  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.
