In a food processor, process 4 cups strawberries until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a saucepan and stir in 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring until sauce has thickened and bubbles cover surface, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Store in a jar for up to 10 days.

Top pancakes or waffles. Stir into yogurt. Enjoy on ice cream.

This is so good on so many things. Delectable.

With two cups of strawberries, you can make a tasty bread to start your day.

2 cups strawberries, quartered and mashed with a fork.

5 tablespoons unsalted butter,  room temperature.

1 teaspoon additional butter for loaf pan

1 and 3/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

dash salt

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a loaf pan. In a small saucepan, bring the strawberries to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. With an electric mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and eggs in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Add the flour mixture alternately with 1/3 cup water, beginning and ending with flour. Fold in reserved strawberries.

Scrape batter into loaf pan, smoothing top. Bake about 1 hour, tenting with foil after 45 minutes if top is getting too dark.

Top with softened cream cheese or butter for a delicious spread.

Fresh Strawberries

Whole-grain Buttermilk Biscuits

Homemade Whipped Cream

Whole-grain Buttermilk Biscuits


1 cup Whole Wheat Flour

3/4 cup Flour

3 Tablespoons Wheat Germ

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

dash salt

3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter

1 cup low fat Buttermilk  

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and whisk to blend. Add the butter to the flour mixture; with a pastry blender or two knives cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Add the buttermilk and stir just until a moist dough forms. Don’t over mix. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured work surface and with floured hands knead gently 6 to 8 times until smooth. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick and use a 2 1/2 in round biscuit cutter (I use a cup) to cut out biscuits. Gather scraps and roll out to make additional biscuits. Place the biscuits about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.  Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden.

Whipped Cream is so easy to make and can be frozen to enjoy anytime!

1 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Chill bowl and mixing beaters. Combine ingredients and beat with an electric mixer on medium until soft peaks form. To freeze, place a spoonful onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Put in the freezer for 30 minutes.  After they are firm, they can be put into a freezer container. We love this!


What a yummy seasonal treat.
