Strawberry Almond Shortcake

When you have a basket of ripe strawberries, strawberry shortcake is one of the tastiest things that you can make with them.

Fresh Strawberry Mini Cupcakes

Fresh Strawberry Mini Cupcakes

When strawberries are in season and my local farmers markets are overflowing with them, I can’t resist taking home basket after basket.

Strawberry Margarita Popsicles

Strawberry Margarita Popsicles

Icy, blended margaritas are definitely a good way to cool down on a hot summer evening. They’re flavorful and have a little (grown up!) kick to them.

Peach and Strawberry Cobbler

Peach and Strawberry Cobbler

I like to think of this Peach and Strawberry Cobbler as my end-of-summer cobbler. This particular batch of cobbler was baked with beautiful fresh strawberries and a mix of perfectly ripe yellow and white peaches. The strawberries are probably some of the last top-notch berries I’ll get this season – hence the end-of-summer feeling to the dessert. It also helps that the colors in the ... Read More »

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry Ice Cream Cone

Strawberries are at their very best for only a few weeks each year. You can find great strawberries on either end of the growing season, from a patch that hit their stride early or from some that blossomed later than usual, but the ones that are really worth eating are those that you get during the height of the season. I freeze some strawberries for ... Read More »
