I have been meaning to review this really yummy tea for quite a while now. I blame my boyfriend; he swiped my can of The Republic of Tea’s HiCAF Toasted Coconut Black Tea Bags and brought it to work with him! The Republic of Tea is one of my favorite tea companies, their tea is so good! (One of my go-to’s is their Earl Greyer Tea) I also really like their packaging; the tins make it easy to transport and keep the tea bags more fresh than they would be in a box. What makes this tea particularly noteworthy is that the caffeine content of this tea is enhanced with green tea extract and pure caffeine isolated from premium tea leaves, so it’s a great morning pick-me-up.

I love pound cake. I mean, honestly, who doesn’t? It’s so stinking delicious! So I’m excited to be doing another post with Sara Lee Desserts! (You can check out my last post with Sara Lee here — Mini Berry Trifles with Lemon Whipped Cream) This time around, I wanted to try out grilling the pound cake. I’ve seen a few recipes using grilled pound cake and I was intrigued. (Like this recipe for Mini Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Skewers or this one for Grilled Pound Cake with Berries and Whipped Cream). Strawberries are in season so a Strawberry Shortcake recipe was in order… but I upped the flavor by adding Nutella Whipped Cream. Oh yes. Ingredients: 1 family sized Sara Lee Pound Cake 1 16 oz pack of strawberries 1/2 cup nutella 1 cup whipping cream cooking spray #spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Sara Lee.
