    @juliedarling: Creamy Strawberry Snowcone. This is a pretty regular one over here…it’s what I call our natural strawberry nesquik drink. We eat this because fresh local strawberries and hot Texas summers just go together. @edibleaustin #edibleescape #100daysofsnowcones

    @robu_nobu: I LOVE ITALY!!!!! Seriously everything I have eaten since I have arrived 24 hours ago has been incredible and I don’t even know what I ordered. I’m in love! I live for adventurous food eating in a new place, it’s the best way to get to know the local culture. #italy #gelato #heaven #edibleescape

    @kellyelenadugan: brown butter cherry clafoutis. A clafoutis is a classic French dessert baked with cherries - which purists claim you should bake with their pits in to impart a slightly bitter almond flavor. I’m not sure about that, but I do know that @juliaardendixon came over, took photos of me licking spatulas and then we ate it and it was delicious. I love making sweets for people. #edibleescape @edibleaustin
