Buttermilk Pancakes with Strawberry Guava Syrup

Buttermilk Pancakes with Strawberry Guava Syrup

A pat of butter and a generous drizzle of maple syrup is probably my favorite way to finish off a plate full of hot-off-the-griddle pancakes, but it isn’t the only option out there. Fresh fruit is another great way to top off pancakes, but as tasty as fresh fruit is, you don’t get the consistency with a handful of sliced berries and I like to ... Read More »

They have more lemon than berry, but that berry makes the lemonade all the sweeter.

These cupcakes are inspired in part by lemon drop cocktails and in part by summer strawberries – making them a sort of adult strawberry lemonade cupcake. ... Read More »

Fresh Strawberry Pie

Fresh Strawberry Pie Slice

When I was a kid, I liked to dip fresh strawberries into a little bit of sugar before I ate them. When they were still damp from being washed, the sugar clung perfectly to the berries and having a little bit of sugar made not-quite-perfect berries taste amazing. I didn’t use a lot, just enough to kiss the berries. I would eat the strawberries that ... Read More »
