I am way, way too excited about this foolproof way to make sure everyone gets their fair share of fruit in every single glass of sangria. Bonus: this method is perfect for parties (it doesn’t get much easier for the host or hostess). Double bonus: it’s freakin’ delicious, of course, because it’s sangria. In a jar!More
Chocolate and strawberries. Strawberries and chocolate. A natural pair. MFEO. Peas in a pod. And perfect for today.
I think you’re looking at the perfect breakfast to whip up for your Valentine this morning. Or any morning, really. It’s chocolatey – oh, so chocolatey – but it also boasts a nice, big dose of healthy, juicy strawberries along with vanilla yogurt, a little orange juice, and a dash of vanilla.More
My garden is a sad sight this year, as summer started just a tad too late for me to have much confidence in all the things I wanted to plant. Happily, though, the peas are thriving – and so are the strawberries.
Big, red, perfect, plump, juicy strawberries. I’ll run out there to snag a couple to slice atop my yogurt for breakfast or a handful to enjoy whole after dinner. Or, like the other day, I’ll just start picking and soon I’ll have a nice bowlful, and then I get to dreaming all about what kinds of creations I can make with these delicious scarlet goodies.
Say, for instance, strawberry shortcake cupcakes.More
It’s July 5, and Seattleites like myself know what that means: summer is finally here! Sure enough, the sun showed its ever-so-scarce face yesterday and, according to the forecast, might just stick around for awhile. Woo hoo!
So I thought I’d bid adieu to “June-uary” and usher in the official Seattle summer with a glass of the ideal easy summer sipper: strawberry lemonade.More
Some might argue that a true sangria is red.
Me, I don’t care either way. It’s sangria. When you’re drinking sangria – regardless of the hue – life is automatically good. Who would want to argue with that?
This sangria in particular has become a fast fave in our house. It’s sweet, but not sickeningly sweet. It’s just-right sweet. The strawberries lend their signature summery taste while the sour lemon keeps everything in check. Lemon-lime soda tops it off and, I think, makes this sangria particularly drinkable – in a bit of a dangerous way, actually.More
