Do you ever look at pictures of food and figure out a new recipe just from the picture? I wanted something different – something light. That’s when I saw a picture of what appeared to be berries and cake on a bamboo skewer. How utterly simple!
Now I couldn’t simply stop at the Red, White and Blue skewers. No way. The moment I saw the picture, I knew it would be a perfect way to utilize a little treasure I came across not long ago at an antique street fair – an Avocado Green Electric Fondue Pot.
Yeah, I’m adding this fun little summertime treat to my pot luck backyard party collection. What a hoot!
