Here in Southern California, we’re lucky to have sweet & tart strawberries available to us nearly year-round.  There is nothing better than biting into a chilled strawberry on a hot summer day fresh from the garden.  Too often we think of the luscious berries as components of breakfast or dessert, thereby limiting the awesome potential of the strawberry.  Wanting to stretch my berries further, I visited Californiastrawberries.com, the new site for the California Strawberry Commission.   Try out this recipe for Grilled Mahi-Mahi Tacos with Strawberry SalsaTo make it a little spicy, add a couple of diced jalapeño chiles.

 As a fun appetizer or afternoon snack, you have to try McCormick’s recipe for Cool Strawberry Salsa and Cinnamon Tortilla Chips.  It’s not spicy, so it’s a fun summertime dish for the kids.

For the adults, whip up a batch of  Strawberry  Margaritas.   If you’re feeling adventurous, you can infuse your favorite tequila with the seasons first ripe  strawberries, as known as Tequila por mi AmanteThe three-week wait is well worth it.

Time to get creative and challenge yourself.  What’s your next strawberry creation?

The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
