Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter A

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food Junkie Favorites: Amaretto Strawberries Romanoff! Have you ever tasted vanilla extract? Well, amaretto tastes nothing like that. It has a smooth sweet hint of almonds with just a smidgen of apricot undertones. When you fold it into Greek yogurt, it transforms a dish of fresh strawberries into a light and elegant dessert you could easily find on a gourmet restaurant menu.

1-2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
