recipe : valentine trifle with rose muddled strawberries

I always loved Valentine’s Day. Well the week and the weeks leading up to the day. Actually, I think it’s safe to say I love the days after it too. I haven’t shared many Valentine’s days with a significant other, but I do have fond memories. This day should be appreciated more as it is an excuse to tell someone you love them, miss them, care for them. I’ve always associated this day with romance, love, friendship and family. Not just the act of having that special someone in your life.
Back in grade school and still today, I spend this day and the days surrounding it, telling everyone I know that I appreciate them and love that they are in my life. It is the very reason I celebrate this day so joyously. I guess it’s a sweeter version of Thanksgiving, huh?
Today’s recipe is made just for that. It’s made to feed a crowd and show them that you care. I call them individual trifles of relationships and appreciation and laced in rose. Because lets be honest, we love a little essence of rose. And so, from me to you, a valentine trifle with rose muddled strawberries.

  • Thank you! I'll give you one for one of those pancakes 🙂 x

  • Yet another delicious looking (and sounding) recipe – I've been looking for something easy to make, that would also look beautiful. I might have to treat my husband to it this weekend! Thanks for the inspiration Supal! 🙂

  • I'm so glad. It's incredibly easy and very decadent. Quite a nice way to sever from the norm of chocolate too! x

  • Beautiful picture–it looks delicious! Any recommendations for a substitute for the rose water? (just regular?)

  • Just add a 1/2 tbs of sugar. It will help bring the strawberry juice out and make it almost like a preserves consistency. It's SO good that way too… I add that mixture to pancakes and waffles as well!

  • I could go for 5 of these right now…my goodness, that photo is lovely, Supal!!
