Can you believe it’s June already? School is out (well Graduate school is out for me for the summer), the sun is shining bright, kids are rejoicing, parents are hoping for just a little relax time. In honor of summer, of finishing my last full-time semester of Grad school (one class next semester), and to actually having time to blog again (hopefully) I wanted to share with you a quick, easy, and delicious dessert.

Chocolate Berry Shortcake

This is my take on a Strawberry Shortcake! And it’s so easy to make! I used ingredients from the local Fresh and Easy.

2 thin slices from a small Angel Food Cake
1 scoop vanilla bean ice cream
2 tablespoons chocolate fudge or chocolate Syrup
1 small container of raspberries
6 strawberries
sugar to taste

1. Slice the strawberries. Mix the strawberries, raspberries, and sugar (add as little or as much as you like depending on your taste, you can even use a sugar substitute). Cover and let sit in the refrigerator.

2. Put the two thing slices of angel food cake on a plate. Place a scoop of ice cream next to them.

3. Drizzle with warm chocolate fudge or (if you don’t have any) you can use chocolate syrup.

4. Spoon the prepared berries over the ice cream and angel food cake.

5. Enjoy!

Very simple but amazingly delicious. I had to limit myself to one serving and not go back for more, however I do have extra berries made up to use tomorrow. I think I’ll do a simple version of just some angel food cake and berries for breakfast!

So this month has been insane. Just got a new car, working many days of the week (with not that many hours but whatever), final papers for graduate classes, and then of course to top it all off the first week of summer break what happens? I get bad sinuses/head cold/whatever you call what I have. But point is I had all of today off… and yet couldn’t leave the apartment. But have been taking the time to do some productive things. Things like… convert some papers to PDF’s so I can upload them for you to enjoy, create a new twitter/blog/forum with some friends, and even start a youtube account. So, let me show you what I’ve been up to.

First, I have never played with YouTube but lately I decided I wanted to learn how. You can see my first two YouTube attempts here. Please be kind.

Also – I have some lovely friends met from Harper’s Globe and LG:15.  Together we have joined forces and became the Geek Girls. You can follow us on twitter @geekygirls, check out our new geeky blog, and play at our geeky forums. Come and join us – I promise we are nice!

I am currently trying to figure out how to upload the papers I wrote as PDFs for everyone to read/enjoy/give me feedback about. I have them in PDF format just not sure if I have to find a server to upload them to and then link or what. I will post them as soon as I figure it out! 🙂
