It's time for SRC again! And as part of the Secret Recipe Club, we get assigned a blog each month. I have to say, I'm glad to be back after taking a bit of a break to get some things changed up on the blog, along with a redesign. This month, I got Lauren's blog, From Gate to Plate - where agriculture meets culinary. I enjoyed her blog since she's got so many wonderful recipes, primarily made from scratch. She even used to live on a 200 acre farm - jealous!

Exploring around her blog, I saw a Strawberry Panna Cotta and knew I just had to make it, especially with all the sweet, sweet strawberries around. Except you see how my recipe title's Mango Panna Cotta? Yeah. Unbeknownst to me, we'd actually eaten all the fresh strawberries we had. However, we did have some deliciously ripe mangoes, and they're so full of that wonderful, tropical flavor! So I'm sharing Mango Panna Cotta with you all today! Panna cotta's actually something I've wanted to make for a while now, and can you believe Lauren's reminded her of cooking lessons she had - in Italy - in a castle! Can you say jealous?!

Fortunately for you and me, you can make your own sweet and creamy panna cotta, or cooked cream in Italian, easily! So not only do you have something luxurious and elegant, it's easy to make and requires little effort. You can even make it in advance. How's that for a win? :)

What's something you thought would be complicated to make, but was surprisingly simple?

    1. I did too - until I found this recipe! :) You really can switch up the flavors so much, and use any fruit, just like you mentioned. Although you might want to be careful with kiwi and pineapple. :)
