I drove back to New York to spend the 4th with my parents, and like any other trip home, it involves a lot of cooking, baking, grilling and cocktails. We picked sour cherries and strawberries from a local fruit farm, and made a lovely pie, and this deliciously easy strawberry shortcake.

It’s hard to believe that four years ago today, I was sitting at my computer in Columbus writing up this same recipe, and posting my first ever post. I don’t typically like to get corny or sentimental on the blog, but everything kind of fell perfectly into place, so why the hell not? Please just […]Continue Reading →
I am not a pink kind of girl, but I will make an exception for this cake because the light pink hue is all natural. And I love strawberries.
This cake is surprisingly made with frozen strawberries, so it easy to enjoy any time of the year. The frozen berries are simply thawed and […]Continue Reading →
I only make these around Christmas, but they’re delicious any time of year. Growing up my mom made them as part of her annual cookie tray during the holidays and filled them with the homemade strawberry, peach and black raspberry jams we made that year.

One of my all time favorite combinations is strawberries and almonds, and these do not disappoint. These muffins are delicious anytime, but would make a great addition to a Mother’s day breakfast or brunch.
I think a lot of strawberry bread and muffin […]Continue Reading →
To say that I love ice cream would be an understatement; if I could eat ice cream every night, without the calorie consequences I totally would. There have been many a night when Mike has graciously ventured out to get me ice cream to cure a craving. What a guy…although, […]Continue Reading →
I can’t believe strawberries have been ready around here for two to three weeks now; just crazy! And as usual, we can’t get our fill; I’m most certainly going out this weekend and picking more. Strawberry shortcake is one of our favorite ways to enjoy them too. Simple, homey, with lightly sweetened fresh berries […]Continue Reading →
